Winemakers and Cellar Doors
Mornington Peninsula Is the Paradise for Food and Wine Lovers
There are many wineries situated in the proximity of Arcadia in Rye. The Cups Estate, being the closest one, is famous for its breathtaking views, multi award winning range of wines and European inspired tapas menu. The Cups Estate is situated between the two waters of Bass Strait and Port Philip Bay in the undulating dune region known as “the cups”. It is open 7 days a week from 11am to 5pm, with the onsite restaurant operating Thursdays to Sundays for Lunch all year round and every day in January.

Our Visit to the Local The Cups Estate Vineyard
When you enter the carpark, a small vineyard is located on your left side. Inside the cosy restaurant which is situated just at the carpark, you will find a centrally located counter. Here, the friendly staff will immediately offer you a table or a wine tasting experience. We visited The Cups Estate recently and the wine tasting contained all wines that are currently listed in the product price list – the local 2016 Pinot Gris, 2015 Peninsula Rose, 2015 Pinot Noir, 2014 “Raimondo” Reserve Pinot Noir and 2015 Shiraz. Despite our preference of red wines, the Peninsula Rose was our personal favourite. Pinot Noir should be the variety that is the most traditional (and best valued) from this wine region; Shiraz has a little more body in the taste. Whatever your preferences and tastes, you will find the Cups Estate beautiful location, service and wines surely inspiring.
