Anyone who has visited the Crittenden Estate Wine Centre knows the name represents wine-making pioneers with a reputation for remarkable wines. This family-owned and operated winery has been part of the Winter Wine Weekend from the beginning and is proud to continue the tradition heading into the Mornington Peninsula’s winemaking future.
Zoe Crittenden explains. “We were involved in the very first Winter Wine Weekend event held on the Peninsula. We had hay bales scattered around with a band singing while Mum made multiple trays of home-made lasagne, curry and sausages. We were rugged up in wet weather gear and everyone was so enthusiastic. It really was a crazy and fun-filled weekend. We look forward to it every year.”
Fast-forward to today and Crittenden Estate’s innovative winemaking is what it’s all about. Fabulous reviews have come thick and fast for master winemakers Garry and Rollo, who have ensured that this exciting winery is one of the Mornington Peninsula’s very best cool-climate wine producers. Campbell Mattinson said in a recent review: “The Crittenden Estate wines are a treasure trove right now. The tenure of Rollo Crittenden is something else.”
