It’s a pretty special patch of dirt we are privileged to care for. At the southern tip of mainland Australia, we make wines that sing of their place and time.
Arriving at Polperro’s cellar door in the heart of Red Hill you can’t help but notice how close you are to the vineyards. It’s clear that what Polperro nails is hospitality. Staff are welcoming, helpful and incredibly knowledgeable and you can’t help but feel like you have been invited to a great party thrown by somebody who knows how to take care of people

Polperro very much cemented as one of the great places to visit in the Mornington Peninsula and a winery with strong currency in their mesh of traditional and contemporary wine approaches. Kudos.

Huon Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald & The Real Review
This is one of our finest Aussie Chardonnays of the year. I have always admired the wines from this estate but this 2021 vintage has completely blindsided me with its awesome quality … this is a legendary creation from the mercurial Sam Coverdale.

Polperro is increasingly a producer to watch from Mornington with year-on-year refinement of it’s style. This has often impressed, but it’s new release has stunned.

Mornington Peninsula’s Polperro wines are “some of the most intriguing wines” Ray Jordan has tried this year”
Ray Jordan, The West Australian
Nestled in a forested gully on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, this restaurant and winery designed by Hecker Guthrie expresses a deep appreciation of quality and craft.

Polperro Single Vineyard wines capture the essence of the maritime climate of the Mornington Peninsula and the unique expressions of five individual vineyard sites, specialising in Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay.
Polperro Estate wines are produced from our own vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula, individual parcels are blended to create our estate cuvées resulting in something far beyond the sum of their parts.
Polperro Wine – Est. 2009 – Single Vineyard & Estate Grown Wines from the Mornington Peninsula
Sam speaks of the individual vineyard sites like a parent speaks of their children: delighting in their unique traits, playing to their strengths, realising their potential, celebrating their triumphs.
This superior tacit understanding of site, combined with precision in the winery create wines of character and with a true sense of place. Of the nine vineyards we own and manage on the Mornington Peninsula, five produce our single vineyard wines. Such is the diversity of the region – picking times can vary between sites by up to six weeks within a few minutes drive yet each benefit from the moderating maritime influence. That cooling sea breeze maintaining the perfume and freshness critical to producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Cultivating trusted relationships with select growers, Even Keel is a label-at-large. Our edit of cool climate regions of Australia celebrates their individual strengths.
Even Keel – Est. 2006 – Select Regions
Even Keel celebrates the individual strengths of cool climate regions of Australia. Each region is selected for having the optimum conditions to suit specific varieties, such as Pinot Gris from the Mornington Peninsula, Syrah from the Canberra District, Chardonnay from Tumbarumba and Shiraz from Heathcote.
With a long history of trusted working relationships, Sam selects growers with the utmost care. Every aspect of the growing—from pruning, canopy management and harvesting—is overseen. At harvest, the fruit is carefully hand-picked and transferred to our Polperro winery on the Mornington Peninsula to be vinified and matured. Here the same care and dedication is shown to these selected parcels of fruit as to the wines of the Polperro label. The resulting wines are true expressions of their region.
