Woodhaven Vineyard site

Our vineyard is in the hills of the upper Mornington Peninsula wine region noted for high quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay characteristic of a cool climate.

The maritime climate of the Mornington Peninsula is essential to our distinctive delicate wines as noted by Jancis Robinson
 
The 1.6ha Woodhaven vineyard is on a north facing slope of a small Main Ridge valley at an altitude of 240m, shared with the renowned vineyards of Main Ridge Estate, and Myrtaceae. At this altitude, we benefit from a cool climate which leads to the slow ripening of the berries to develop the characteristic flavours of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.   

The soils of the Mornington Peninsula vary significantly from the yellow and grey soils of the alluvial plain at Merricks, brown soils of the rolling low hills at Flinders, to the red soils of the rolling low hills of Red Hill and Main Ridge. We enhance the existing attributes of our soil at Woodhaven Vineyard with organic and biodynamic practices.
