Crittenden Estate

Our cellar door started life in a shed, where Margaret Crittenden would host makeshift tastings.

Ten years later in 1992, Margaret’s culinary vision saw the opening of our cellar door tasting room and winery café, marking the beginning of a new kind of wine tourism for the Peninsula.

That humble yet popular café grew into Stillwater at Crittenden, and under the ownership of chef Zac Poulier, is now amongst the Peninsula's most well regarded restaurants, and the Crittenden Wine Centre is the centrepiece of our wine making family.

Garry Crittenden is a true pioneer in the Australian wine industry. He was the first vintner to see the potential of the Mornington Peninsula as a thriving wine region.

With a background in horticulture and inspired by his long-standing love of wine, Garry transitioned from a nursery-man into viticulture just as the Peninsula was emerging as a wine growing area. His first modest five acres more than doubled the area under vine in the region. Since those first plantings in 1982, his commitment to the region has seen the Mornington Peninsula flourish to world recognition.



Boasting the title of ‘most diverse’ wine region in Australia, Victoria’s vintners know their wine. Despite being the smallest mainland state, Victoria boasts the most wine regions out of all the Australian states and houses a plethora of individual wineries, producing some of Australia's best Pinot Noir, Fortified wine, Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Sparkling Wines.

In fact, back in the 1880’s Victoria was Australia’s largest wine producer. However, outbreaks of Phylloxera (aphid like insects that inject venom into the roots of grapevines) and a focus on gold saw wine production in the state grind to a halt. In the 1970s, Victoria’s wine industry enjoyed a resurgence, led by a new generation of talented winemakers keen to take advantage of the diverse climate and soils available in the region.

The world renowned Yarra Valley wine region, is located just an hour from the state’s capital, Melbourne. The region is best known for its Pinot Noir, being that it is the most planted grape and occupies over 36% of vines in the region. The Yarra Valley boasts huge variations in elevation, climate and even soil types, allowing winemakers to be able to produce single vineyard wines that are notable for being unique to their sites.
