The Journey

In the early 90's, a young Max Paganoni returned to his birthplace of the Mornington Peninsula after a working holiday through Europe.

The best view of any vineyard in the world”
Ian Sutton, Former CEO
Australian Winemakers Federation

His dream was to create a high quality dining experience that would showcase the fine produce and cool climate wines of the region.

Selecting a stunning site at a founding Peninsula vineyard, the first winery restaurant in the region, Max's at Red Hill Estate was born.

Max's dream has now been realised. As well as a multi-award winning restaurant, the Max's brand also incorporates a produce line, two accommodation properties and a new touring business. All designed to showcase the region to the world, Max's truly does 'Capture the Essence of the Mornington Peninsula'.
