In the world of wine, winemakers normally get all the attention. However, making wines that are true to our region could never happen without a strong team. We’re privileged to find ourselves surrounded by eager and talented people who appreciate our land, vineyards and wines. Every day we learn from each other and are grateful for this shared knowledge.
Our family owned vineyards are located in Merricks North and produce 100% estate grown wines. Elgee Park is the oldest vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula planted in 1972.
Launching in March 2021, our Cellar Door offers a fabulous opportunity to visit the vineyard, taste premium Yal Yal wines and enjoy delicious food platters sourced from the local produce of the Mornington Peninsula.
Port Phillip Estate
Port Phillip Estate is an architectural landmark which unfurls across the ridge, is one of the most exciting food and wine destinations in Australia.
The Mornington Peninsula has become one of the most sought-after regions in Australia for the production of high quality Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. These are the varieties planted at Ocean Eight’s vineyards.
On the Mornington Peninsula, we grow cool-climate varieties including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, producing wines that express the full range of styles from these classic grapes.
'Let me tell you a story I've never told before.'
There’s good surf just down the road from Polperro in Red Hill and that’s why Sam Coverdale ‘may’ be late for a meeting or two.
After all, you’ve got to go with the flow. Ever checking his phone to monitor weather patterns for vineyard disease pressure, and of course the swell, this Mornington Peninsula winemaker understands the importance of letting nature dictate the essence and quality of product.
The ebb and flow of the seasons defines each of his single vineyard wines and he’s happy to follow those tides towards complete sensory seduction from barrel to board and back again.
