News & Upcoming Events


The first licensed winery on the Mornington Peninsula began in 1975 when local wine making pioneers Nat and Rosalie White saw the potential of the site that would become Main Ridge Estate.

Perched high on Arthurs Seat enjoying a maritime climate that ensured no frost or excessive heat, the gentle north-east slopes of volcanic soil were ripe with promise.

Today, 40 year-old deep rooted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines provide exceptional 100% estate grown fruit. The wine is carefully made to express the terroir of this iconic site.

After four decades the Whites retired in 2015 and passed this beautiful property to us. Main Ridge Estate is our home and we welcome guests in the cellar door at weekends, and every day during holiday periods.

Visitors enjoy fine wine, simple casual lunches and views of the quiet bush valley, gardens and vineyard from the sundeck, or can sit by the fire in the original working winery.

We look forward to sharing with you the good life we enjoy in our idyllic vineyard!

Tim, Libby and James Sexton
