Sommelier visits to Mornington Peninsula and Macedon Ranges, Victoria

The sommeliers would split into different groups with each one headed for an important wine region in Victoria - Geelong, Yarra, Macedon Ranges and Mornington Peninsula. My group headed to Mornington to learn about their signature Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs and discover that they also make excellent Pinot Gris. #wine #sommsoftheworld Mornington Peninsula
