Ten Minutes by Tractor : Winery Restaurant & Cellar Door


Ten Minutes by Tractor is a winery, restaurant and cellar door located in Main Ridge, near Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. It all started in 1997 with three family owned vineyards in Main Ridge, all ten minutes by tractor apart. Over the past 15 years, Martin and Karen have been the driving force that have taken Ten Minutes by Tractor on to become one of the leading cool climate wineries in Australia.

At Ten Minutes by Tractor, their passion is great wine and great food. They offer a relaxed and intimate cellar door experience with in depth tastings where you can discover wines that are a true expression of the unique qualities and character of their vineyards.

In the fine dining restaurant, Chef Hayden Ellis’s innovative menu is driven by fresh regional produce from their local growers and farm gates, their kitchen garden and foraged items from their forests, hills and coastline. This is overlaid with classic French training and experience working in some of the best restaurants in the world, including The Fat Duck and the Ledbury in the UK, and vue de Monde and Bistro Guillaume in Melbourne.
