Wine Tasting at Foxeys Hangout

Foxeys Hangout, set amidst the picturesque Mornington Peninsula, is the fruit of the Lee brothers' vision and dedication to crafting wines of elegance and character. With a focus on sustainability, Foxeys Hangout has achieved organic-biodynamic certification for its winery and key vineyards, marking it as a pioneer in the region. This commitment to natural winemaking principles underpins their entire range, from sparkling whites to complex reds. Head winemaker Chris Strickland, along with Tony and Michael Lee, steers the winery's direction, ensuring that every bottle reflects the terroir's unique story through minimal intervention and a deep respect for the vineyard's health.

At Foxeys Hangout, the belief is that great wines originate from great vineyards. This philosophy has led to the adoption of organic and biodynamic practices, with the winery being the first on the Mornington Peninsula to receive biodynamic certification by Australian Certified Organic. The Lee brothers' approach to winemaking is grounded in the understanding that the true essence of wine is derived from the grape itself, advocating for a style that prioritizes savoury nuances over overt fruitiness, and allowing the natural acid and tannin structures to shine through.
