Phillip Island Winery
Phillip Island wines have become popular not just in Australia, but across the world. One Phillip Island winery that has been creating waves with its wines and ability to attract some of the best music performers, such as Nick Charles, Phil Manning and Laura Hill, to entertain visitors is the Phillip Island Vineyard and Winery. Undoubtedly, there is more to Phillip Island than penguins, koalas and beaches.
This Phillip Island winery is a stone’s throw from the Grand Prix Circuit, the Penguin Parade and The Nobbies. It is located on Berry’s Beach Road, Ventnor and offers magical views of the Bass Strait and Berry’s Beach.
Wines on Offer
The winery produces its signature Estate Pinot Noir and Estate Chardonnay that are a must-try. You will not get better wines than these anywhere. Then there are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rose, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Merlot. In addition, visitors can enjoy some sparkling wines as well.
All the wines can be tasted in an amazing and tranquil setting along with a platter of Gippsland cheeses, homemade dips and smoked trout. Alternatively, visitors can indulge in a ploughman’s platter comprising of cheeses and fresh, sliced meats.
This history of Phillip Island Vineyard and Winery goes back 17 years when the first vines were planted. The nutrient-rich soil on the Island allowed this Phillip Island winery to produce some of the best wines.
Walking through the vineyard, you will be able to see the vines protected by special netting that protects them from the birds, hail, sea winds and hares. The fruits are painstakingly hand-picked and just the best fruits are used for wine-making.
The Cellar Door
The cellar door at the Phillip Island Winery is artistically and beautifully constructed amid lush natural greenery that soothes the body and mind. It has a rustic appeal that is hard to resist. Visitors can sit indoors or enjoy the beautiful scenery in peaceful settings, in the courtyard.

During winters, there are inviting and cosy fires burning that allow visitors to absorb the panoramic coastal views.
The cottage-style cellar door is perfect for carrying an interesting book that you can read at your leisure while tasting a few great wines.
