Boasting a wide selection of wines, incredible views, and a generously sized cellar door, Red Hill Estate has all the ingredients needed for a perfect winery visit. They’ve been producing their cool climate wines for more than 25 years, and as such have become quite a staple for the Mornington Peninsula area.
Red Hill Estate offers wine that not only varies in variety, but also price point. This ensures they have something for pretty much everyone, and can match your tasting to your particular style and preferences.
With their strong local focus, Red Hill Estate produces fantastic Mornington Peninsula favourites Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as some great quality Sparkling and dessert wines.

Included on the property is Max’s Restaurant, although it’s not a common stop for Wine Compass’ tours. The restaurant is on the higher end
Red Hill Estate claims to have the best views of any winery in the world, which, albeit a steep claim, might not be too far from the truth. The estate would at the very least give any other winery on the Peninsula a run for their money (Blue Range Estate is also pretty special).
As you enjoy their well-crafted wines, you can look out over their 23 acres of vines to take in sweeping views of Westernport Bay, Bass Strait and Phillip Island.
What we like
Without a doubt, the view steals the show for Red Hill Estate.
What we don’t like
A few of the staff members who work at Red Hill Estate are less than accommodating, which can really put a dampener on the experience.
