    What a wonderful gem to find!
    We did a wine tasting before lunch at Stillwater. It was so beautiful. Ben was very attentive, the wine was all really interesting and delicious and the setting was exquisite. It was such a perfect Autumn experience. We joined the wine club and would love to come back again. The only thing we felt was missing was the opportunity to purchase a cheese platter to go with the wine.

    Simply Stunning
    Stayed overnight in one of the villas. Stunning, simply stunning. Opened the villa door to be greeted with a warm & cosy environment. Could not have expected anything more, it had everything we needed. It was clean, presentable and they thought of everything you would need for a stay in a villa. The view was also stunning. Linda, thanks for everything. Our complimentary wine tasting was exceptional and Andrew was a great host. Would recommend this highly.

    Well done Andrew
    Had a wonderful tasting with Andrew who guided the group through the tasting efficiently and with just the right amount of information. He was generous with his time and went the extra yard to include an extra wine for one of the group. It was a wonderful way to start the day.

    A great wine experience
    A friendly and welcoming environment with excellent staff who are knowledgeable but not intrusive. An excellent tasting for 11 of us over an hour and a half with a great selection of wines that appeal to all levels of wine drinkers. Quality is consistent over many vintages having visited many times over the years. Highly recommended

    Don’t miss this one of you’re visiting wineries on the peninsula
    We live on the Mornington Peninsula and go to this winery a couple of times per year when we have interstate or international visitors because we know they are going to enjoy a really nice experience. Yesterday was an exception though. A young man by the name of Ben made our American visitors feel like VIP guests, it was was above and beyond what I would have expected. The wines are great, we are big fans of their Kangerong chardonnay and Pinot noir, the quality of the wine is a must for us to even consider a venue. But it is the service which separates this winery from the pack. Absolutely brilliant.

    A Wine Tasting Experience Above the Rest!
    We had a wine tasting booked for 12pm but arrived a little early due to travelling from the other side of the city. We met Zoe and Ben who were very happy to have us and seated us immediately. Ben asked our wine preferences and customised our tasting accordingly. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history, design, creation and wine composition at Crittenden’s- with a lovely approachable manner. The grounds and atmosphere were beautiful. We left with a delicious selection and look forward to coming back. We visited 3 other local wineries and none had a comparable tasting experience. Thank you Crittenden’s!

    A good wine tasting experience
    This well presented winery located in the heart of Mornington Peninsula offers a good wine tasting experience. The servers were knowledgeable and allowed you some variation from the menu of wines available for tasting. You could choose six different wines and we found the Los Hermanos Saludos, Pinocchio Rosato and Los Hermanos Tempranillo to be our favourites. They have a wine club that you can join which offers purchases throughout the year and free delivery. The wines themselves are quite well priced.
