So far behind,

it’s miles ahead

[/split_line_heading]

French Island is only 60km south-east of Melbourne CBD yet remains wonderfully isolated by the waters of Western Port Bay. Our community of around 100 residents appreciate what’s not here; modern civilization’s electric wires, traffic, noise, signs, hassles, crowds…

A Tranquil Sanctuary

Nearly twice the size of nearby Phillip Island, most of the Island is a National Park teeming with birds and native animals. French Island supports Australia’s largest koala community, so much so that it now exports to the mainland and international zoos.

The Hatton family property

The historic estate, located by the water’s edge, was purchased in 1984 and now is home to a beef farm and wine business. It also hosts French Island Landcare, which has planted hundreds of thousands of indigenous trees, plants and grasses all over the island.

Estate Grown and bottled

[/split_line_heading]

All wines are handmade and bottled on site by winemaker Peter Hatton. Being off grid and isolated is a major challenge for the winery, the Pinot Noir & Shiraz are de-stemmed, crushed in open top fermenters, and hand plunged throughout natural fermentation.
