Stonier: Producer profile and eight wines to try

Historic Mornington Peninsula winery Stonier is back in local family hands again, after two decades of corporate ownership. Co-owner Aaron Drummond tells Anne Krebiehl MW how things have come full circle and showcases eight recent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay releases.

As of December 2022, three local families are now the proud owners of Stonier, one of the great names of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
