Stumpy Gully Vineyard
A family-run vineyard on the Mornington wine trail.
August 13, 2020
Three vineyards, four labels, one overarching Mornington Peninsula winery. That's what falls under the Stumpy Gully name, and has done since 1989. Things could've been different, though, with the Zantvoort family originally planning to grow citrus when they moved over from Holland. Fans of a great locally made drop will be thankful that they decided to go with grapes instead, obviously.
From that setup, Peninsula Panorama Wines is just one of Stumpy Gully's labels, but it's a good one — with a chardonnay, rosé, cabernet merlot, pinot noir and shiraz in its range. If that's too many to pick from, the latter two are particularly top choices, especially if you like cherry and raspberry tastes, or a spice, berry and vanilla oak blend.
The still family-run vineyard operates its cellar door at Moorooduc, right at the beginning of the Mornington wine trail — with the restaurant onsite operating from Friday–Sunday.
