THERE APPEARS TO BE a distinct correlation between the cool, crisp maritime climate

THERE APPEARS TO BE a distinct correlation between the cool, crisp maritime climate of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula and the region’s famously clean, crunchy pinot gris and chardonnay, and luscious pinot noir.

Ocean Eight, located in Shoreham on the southern end of the Peninsula, has been one of the region’s leading producers of these wine styles for ten years and is widely regarded as one of the best examples of pinot gris in Australia.

For the past 20 years vignerons Mike and Hollie Aylward have focused on growing high quality grapes on the Mornington Peninsula, having first established the revered Kooyong vineyards in 1997 prior to commencing their dream project at Ocean Eight in 2007. In between several inspirational trips to Burgundy, the Aylward family has managed to bring Ocean Eight to the fore of modern, new wave Australian winemaking.

The exceptional quality, small-batch wines produced by Ocean Eight are available only at the cellar door, online and at top restaurants around the country. Visit the cellar door on your next trip to the Mornington Peninsula to discover firsthand the provenance of both this unique site and the interesting yet approachable wine styles that Ocean Eight is renowned for.
