6 Mornington Peninsula Wineries With Bridal Accommodation
Lindenderry at Red Hill
This fabulous Red Hill winery offers gourmet dining, award-winning estate-grown wines on 30 acres of stunningly manicured gardens.
Even better, you and your guests can book accommodation before, during and after your wedding from their 40 rooms, each with private courtyards or views of exquisite gardens and vineyards.
Its range of reception rooms also offers you flexibility in the size of your wedding too - from intimate second (or third) weddings to big fancy affairs!
Port Phillip Estate
Situated in Red Hill South, Port Philip Estate's forbidding exterior gives you no hint of the breathtaking valley vista once you enter.
The winery is highly sought-after as both a glamorous venue for elegant sit-down weddings for up to 110 people and for stylish cocktail events. Its array of expertly prepared dishes draw food writers like a magnet - your guests will rave about their meals! Plus, there is smart accommodation for up to a dozen guests in your bridal party with six luxury suites below.
Book Red Hill's Polperro to celebrate in its French-decor inspired bistro which serves a tightly edited menu of international dishes using local produce, and you can also book accommodation for your bridal party in its four suite rooms.
This venue could be great for those guests who want to loosen up before or after your wedding with a good stretch out in its Bikram-style Hotnut yoga class. It also offers surfing lessons which could be great if you want a vineyard wedding while your partner wants a beach wedding. Oh, and it also packs a great picnic hamper!
Morning Sun Vineyard
This 42-acre Italian family-owned vineyard in Main Ridge was once an apple orchard. It exudes Italian dolce vita with its airy cellar door area and a dedicated dining space with rustic communal tables (perfect for shared dishes paired with the Morning Sun Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio wines) which look onto the terracotta tiled terrace.
It also offers two three-bedroom self-contained apartments with open plan kitchen, living and dining, two bathrooms, undercover parking and a private balcony overlooking the vineyard, to sleep up to 12 guests.
Blue Range Estate Wines
Perfect for a laidback lunchtime wedding under patio umbrellas is Blue Range Estate Wines in Rosebud.
A family-owned and run winery which specialises in Pinot Noir, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio, it has five luxury villas with king- or queen-sized beds and private terraces overlooking the Mornington Peninsula.
While not strictly a vineyard, this luxury country hotel is located near a number of Moorooduc wineries.
It offers couples a tranquil, five-star vintage style retreat complete with spa facilities, making it a popular wedding venue.
Woodmans Restaurant serves locally sourced, seasonal produce with Mornington Peninsula, regional Australia and overseas wines. This gloriously romantic venue has three lakeside chalets, three spa suites and four deluxe garden rooms for wedding party accommodation.
