Experience a touch of Austria on the Mornington Peninsula.

Established 1996 by Sigi and Pauline Schindler this small family owned vineyard grows Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Since then we have grafter some of our Chardonnay vines to Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc to expand our range of wines. The year 2000 saw the first vintage released, followed by the inaugural opening of the cellar door in 2001. Our guests enjoyed some good toe tapping entertainment and hearty home cooked Austrian favourites such as Beef Goulash, Roast Pork, Sauerkraut and Dumplings finishing off with a slice of 'Apfelstrudel' (Apple Strudel).

Northway Downs Estate also boasts a charming Austrian style farmhouse available for accommodation and a delightful wetlands dam to wander around and explore (glass of wine in hand!).

This charming Austrian Styled self-catering house offers 4 large bedrooms each with a double spa, ceiling fans, TV and bar fridge (2QS, 1DB & 2S). The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave and dishwasher. The living area has a wood fire and pool table. Linen and towels are provided and there is a laundry with washing machine and clothes dryer. On the outdoor deck overlooking the wetlands and vineyard there is a gas barbeque.

Guests are invited to make use of the full size tennis court adjacent to the house and restaurants, golf courses, markets, other wineries and the beach are all within close driving distance to Northway Downs Estate.
