Main Ridge Estate was the first commercial winery on the Mornington Peninsula in 1975. Owner Nat White was inspired by a visit to Burgundy in 1966. The 7.5 acre vineyard is planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on deep red balsatic soils and dry farmed. Intense human intervention in the vineyard enables minimal intervention in the winery where natural yeast and bacteria are utilized to help define the site characteristics. The Pinot Noirs are superb but sold at the winery and not exported to the United States. Boo-Hoo.
