Between the surfing, the wildlife, the hiking, and driving, sometimes the best Phillip Island activity is simply doing nothing at all. That’s the plan at the Phillip Island Winery, where the family-run tasting room actively encourages visitors to kick back and relax. Located amidst the green pastures on the western end of the island, sit down with a Chardonnay or a signature Pinot Noir, and allow the owners to walk you through a flight of their colder climate wines. Indulge with platters of Gippsland cheeses, homemade dips and smoked trout, or watch a blustery storm roll in from the cozy cottage confines. This is the oldest winery on Phillip Island and definitely the most relaxed, and a place to simply relax and unwind and experience the island’s beauty.
Phillip Island Winery is open from 11am-6pm on Saturday, Sunday, and select days of the week. There is live music on Sundays from 1-4pm, and during winter season the hours the cellar door is only open on Sundays. The winery is located off of Berrys Beach Road, and is a convenient stop before heading out to the Nobbies or Penguin Parade.
