Swing amongst the vines at Tucks Ridge
The vibe here is fun and fresh with a light and bright newly renovated cellar door and restaurant, but don’t be fooled, the wines are still some of the best you’ll find in Mornington. Tastings are detailed and informative, with knowledgeable staff who like to keep things casual. Now owned by the crew next door at Montalto, there’s a great synergy between wine tasting and dining, which makes for a relaxed and enjoyable afternoon.

Two ranges are now available for tasting and purchase from the cellar door. The newer, NOW range is designed to be the approachable wines for those who like quality and like to drink now. Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir Rosè and an amazingly good Pinot Noir are all included in the NOW range, and are all under $30.
The classic estate range we’ve all come to know and love over the years is only available to purchase from the cellar door, and is the more serious range of staple Mornington varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, as well as a Savagnin, a delightful Cuveè Sparkling, Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz. The standout being the Buckle Pinot Noir, made from the oldest vines of the estate, first planted in 1985.
The new NOW range of wines at Tucks Ridge, quality wines ready to drink now…
The menu here at Tucks Ridge is designed around their rotisserie, featuring slow roasted pork shoulder, spiced lamb leg, hot smoked salmon and charcoal chicken. Complimented by a delicious range of snacks, sides, salads and sweets. The dishes here are an absolute knockout. So full of flavour, so beautifully presented and so delicious.

A newly renovated cellar door and restaurant has breathed new life into this boutique winery. The views from the outdoor dining area are some of the best on the Peninsula, with plenty of space to wonder or relax with a glass or two from the estate. The cellar door may be smaller than others, but the views are unparalleled.

What we like
The beautiful views and surrounds, coupled with an amazing and extensive range of wines, make this an unbeatable cellar door experience.
Outdoor dining at its best at Tucks Ridge
What we don’t like
The cellar door can get a little crowded, but the new renovations have extended the tasting area through to the restaurant, so you can enjoy your wine with a view now too.
