5 wineries we love - All under 10 minutes drive from Red Hill Candle Co

Have you ever wondered which are the best wineries to visit in Red Hill? There are so many to choose from but if you are short on time and want to visit a few, here are our top picks of wineries in Red Hill and surrounds.

Who doesn't like a drop of vino? It can be the perfect winter warmer or summer delight. Down where we are located in Dromana we like to think we're in the foothills of Red Hill - which is well known for it's amazing wineries. We're mere minutes away from these five stunning wineries, most which offer food, all which offer a special ambience. So next time you're stopping by us to stock up on candles you know which Red Hill wineries to head to next!

Foxey's Hangout

6min drive from us

Best for couples or small groups who love to share great tapas. Their pinot gris is second to none and the team here have the whole experience down to a fine art. This winery restaurant is compact so you'll likely enjoy a view from any seat in the house. Did you know that we serve Foxey's Hangout sparkling wine to guests of our candle making workshops on arrival? See info about our candle making workshops here.

Trofeo Estate

7min drive from us

We can't get enough of their new grazing board style menus they're now serving up. Pair that with some of their wines aged in terracotta amphorae and you have a winning combo. Plenty of ducks wandering outside to keep you entertained too.

Lindenderry at Red Hill

8min drive from us

We've eaten the picnic fare here, dined in the restaurant and can assure you it's well worth it! Yes you could just sample their wines from the cellar door but taking your chosen wine on a meander through their pristine gardens is even better with a gourmet picnic hamper.

Main Ridge Estate

10min drive from us

Another long serving Peninsula winery steeped in history who continue to serve up high quality wines. Last time we visited it was a stormy day and we watched the weather pass from the cosy deck, snacking away on their lovely food - there was nowhere we would have rather been that day.

Crittenden Estate

5min drive from us

One of the Peninsula's founding wineries who continue to innovate and hero the best wines. Their wine centre with seated tastings invites you to taste at a more relaxed pace and truly appreciate the flavours found in their estate grown varieties. Next door is Stillwater restaurant, so once you've loaded up on some new favourites the restaurant is a great way to spend the afternoon.
