Growing Areas Along the Coast
The climate of the area is shaped by the strong winds that blow across the land from Port Phillip Bay and the Bass Strait. The area has red volcanic soil and hills that rise 300m above sea level. Even though rain is usually reliable, extra watering is often needed when plants are growing. When autumn is long and mild, grapes tend to be fully ripe and have great fruit flavors, high natural acidity, and fine tannins. The Mornington Peninsula district is known for its high-quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. You can also find Shiraz, the most Pinot Gris in Australia, and even Tempranillo there.
The area has a long history of farming, sending fruit, berries, vegetables, and herbs to the markets in Melbourne. The area is also an important place for recreation and tourism, especially for people from Melbourne, who come there on weekends and holidays. This is a new wine region that has only just started to be used for growing grapes. Since the early 1970s, people have been making wine for sale. There are more than 200 vineyards in the world today. More than half of them are less than 5 acres, and the other two-thirds are less than 10 acres. Commercial growth, on the other hand, is being driven by the bigger players. At the moment, vineyards with more than 20 acres make up well over 40% of the total grape-growing area.
