Overview

Quealy Cellar Door takes you right into the heart of the winery, tasting amidst the barrels and Tuscan terracotta amphora. Kathleen and Kevin first arrived on the Mornington Peninsula in 1988 and have spent the subsequent years cultivating a reputation for single vineyard expressions of regional heroes Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, sourced from some of the oldest and finest sites on the Peninsula. Quealy's experience of Italian wine-making tradition has inspired Secco Splendido, Pobblebonk, Pinot Grigio and little-grown Friulano variety. Open daily, come and taste with our experienced team including resident cellar paw Ninj and Kooky the Koala.

Visited on a Chillout wine tour. Probably our favourite visit of the day as you are right in the winery and get get into the barrel room. Some very interesting wines as they try a few different things. Well worth a look.

if you're looking for a great winemaker who has started their own operation, come right in. The wine is a little different to what's around, but worth a try. loved that they also serve some breads and dips while wine tasting.
