Morning Sun Vineyard
Morning Sun Vineyard
Migrating to Australia at twenty-five years old, Mario Toniolo channelled his love and passion for wine and food to establish Morning Sun Vineyard. He spent years looking for the perfect parcel of land that reminded him of the lush Veneto region in Italy. The land he settled on was once an apple orchid but is now home to one of Victoria’s highly regarded wineries.
Located in a picturesque valley overlooking the vines, it’s almost impossible to believe that this scenic vineyard is only 85 kilometres south of Melbourne. With more than 5 hectares of sprawling hand-planted vines, it’s easy to be swept up in the scenic and breathtaking sights. Morning Sun Vineyard specialises in pinot grigio, chardonnay and pinot noir. Mature fruits are grown on red volcanic soil, producing parcels of fruit with intense and complex flavours.
Morning Sun Vineyard offers a complete peninsula experience in a beautiful rural setting. The winery’s rustic charm complements the lush vineyards and the spectacular Mornington Peninsula.
Guests can enjoy a menu inspired by the tastes of northern Italy, with wood fi red pizzas and other Italian delicacies on offer. The menu pairs beautifully with the in-house wine labels and integrates the four olive oil varieties that are grown on-site. With outdoor seating under the vines, Morning Sun Vineyard provides a unique and authentic Italian experience.
Accommodation is available for a lovely weekend away, with a modern, six-bedroom apartment on-site. Guests can wake up and watch the enchanting sunrise, completing their experience at Morning Sun Vineyard.
The intense flavours of Morning Sun Vineyard’s pinot grigio was recognised at the 2018 International Cool Climate Wine Show, where the 2014 vintage won silver. If you can’t make it out to the vineyard, wine lovers can purchase their favourite Morning Sun Vineyard wines through its online shop.
