Meet the Crittendens

We'd like to introduce you to the Crittendens. We have enjoyed Crittenden wines for a long time. They have always been a highly rated winery and something of an institution on the Mornington Peninsula. Of-course, living in Melbourne we were lucky enough to have them at our back door. Having already been impressed by the quality of their restaurant and cellar door, the professionalism of their business and, of-course, the quality of their wines, we were very keen to meet the family. Garry, the Crittenden patriarch, was gracious and welcoming as he shared the winery’s history and their ethos as land owners and wine makers. They are such proud stewards of their land that sustainability is a byword to them. Garry explained that we would find strict adherence to sustainable practices throughout their operations. But we’d have to say that Garry’s eyes actually lit up when he shared pictures of Crittenden’s latest sustainable practice – their giant onsite compost heap!! We are proud to bring their wines to our new home.
