Experience

The grandeur of this estate is sure to make an impact as you drive towards the first of many sculptures that adorn the grounds of Pt. Leo Estate. The architecture and landscape are very impressive, even if you prefer the feel of a smaller boutique winery, it’s hard not to be awe struck by the cellar door’s design and the views that beckon beyond the sculpture park outside. The elegance of the estate is ever present, but still warm and welcoming for groups and visitors alike.

Wines

Tastings are offered at the open plan cellar door by professional and knowledgeable staff. All fruit is grown on-site, with 50 acres under vine. The signature Mornington Peninsula varieties are proudly showcased here, Pinot Gris; Chardonnay; and Pinot Noir, as well as their estate Shiraz. Aside from the refined palate of these wines, the great thing about a tasting at Pt. Leo is that you can in most cases enjoy a parallel tasting of one or more wine, highlighting the effects that this unique maritime climate has on the wines of this region from one vintage to the next.

Setting

It’s hard to put into words how spectacular the views and setting are at Pt. Leo Estate, it truly needs to be experienced to understand its overwhelming beauty. With breathtaking vistas of Western Port Bay and Philip Island from the expanse of the sculpture park, a visit here is one you’ll remember.

What we like

This is a great location to take groups who want more from their cellar door experience beyond excellent wines, and offers a great insight into the diverse landscape of this region.

What we don’t like

This is probably not the location for larger groups who want to keep their experience more casual.
