Crittenden Estate is one of the oldest family owned and operated wineries on the Mornington Peninsula. We are a family run business who are passionate about creating quality cool climate wine with integrity, passion and honesty. Our recently completed, custom built Wine Centre offers a unique way for those who enjoy wine to experience our selection of more than 25 different styles or varieties on offer. This new format provides seated tastings where knowledgeable staff are on hand to guide visitors through carefully prepared wine journey. A range of alternative and traditional varieties can be sampled in a format that is innovate and educational but imperatively, it is fun and like anything to do with wine, best enjoyed with friends and family.

A very pleasant time tasting 8 wines for $10. Along with a detailed description. We were able to choose which wines we wanted to taste. Naturally we all had our favourite. The surrounds are lovely. Very relaxing and enjoyable.
