Frank and Wendy Zantvoort began planting their first vineyard in 1988, going against the prevailing Mornington Peninsula thinking and planting it solely to red varieties, predominantly cabernet sauvignon, merlot, shiraz and sangiovese. They believed that ripening should present no problems to late-ripening varieties such as shiraz and sangiovese as the vineyard is one of the warmest sites on the Peninsula. Son Michael Zantvoot and wife Liz run the business after Frank and Wendy's retirement, continuing to produce both mainstream and alternative varieties from the original vines. The cellar door and restaurant have been updated to reflect the European heritage of the Zantvoort family and showcase sensational local produce. Exports to all major markets.
Stumpy Gully’s wide range of wines reflects the diversity of the vineyard locations and the planted grape varieties. These wines come under three distinctly different labels – all sharply priced and available from the cellar door and online store.
The regional classics Chardonnay & Pinot Noir are produced together with Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon.
