The Frewer family established Jones Road vineyard in 1997 at Somerville on the Mornington Peninsula overlooking Westernport Bay. The maritime climate of this region produces some of Australia’s best cool climate wines because of the late ripening, the fertile soil and careful vineyard management.
Since those early days we have secured lease on 2 other vineyards here on the Peninsula. One on the Port Phillip side, close to the water and the other at Balnarring near the Westernport Bay. This has increased our vineyards to 60 acres.
