climate The Foxeys Wine District includes wineries north of Merricks North and south of Foxeys Hangout on the Mornington Peninsula, south of Melbourne. Brothers Michael and Tony Lee put their knowledge and interest of fine wines into a winery business on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. They planted their first vineyard in 1997, at the Peninsula township of Merricks North near the renowned road junction and location named Foxeys Hangout, from which their label is derived. In the 1930s, two fox trappers used a tree in the area as their way of keeping score, hanging the corpses of their day's fox shooting from opposite branches of a tree - hence the name `Foxeys Hangout`. The brothers have undertaken further plantings of Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Pinot gris at Red Hill on a historic farming property, the home of Foxey's winery and cellar door. Another winery in the area is Willow Creek Vineyard that extends over three undulating slopes of 12 hectare. The property is home to multi-award winning Salix Bistro and Restaurant, which offers sensational food accompanied by cool climate wines in a lovely setting. Some of the other vineyards and wineries in the area include: Baillieu Vineyard, Box Stallion, Little Valley, Merli, Osborns Hardwood Vineyard, Tanglewood Estate, Willow Creek Vineyard.
