Phaedrus Estate are open every day this December and January (except Christmas Day). They have a large range of wines on tasting, including Fiano, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. Why not stay for a cheese platter and a glass of wine, enjoying the view from the patio, elevated deck, or the expansive lawn.
Most days you will find Ewan or Maitena at their cellar door, taking guests through a relaxed tasting. They love chatting to people about their wines, as well as winemaking and grape growing in general. Both are happy to share their knowledge, about things as simple as how red wine is made, through to complex questions about clones and soil chemistry.
Phaedrus Estate was established in 1997. More than twenty years later Ewan Campbell and Maitena Zantvoort are still enjoying the challenge of making Pinot Noir and other cool-climate varietal wines, including Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Shiraz. 2017 saw the release of a new varietal wine – Fiano. The wines are well-loved by their regular customers as well as new tasters.
In 2017, Phaedrus also launched their Mornington Peninsula Distillery Beach Box Gin, which is available from their cellar door.
