Overview

Bellarine Taste Trail

Treat your tastebuds to the best of the Bellarine Peninsula on the Bellarine Taste Trail. Visit wineries, farmgates, provedores, restaurants and more to savour the flavours of the region. Take a tour or make a weekend of it and map your own itinerary on a self-drive epicurean adventure.

Farmgates and provedores

Stock up on picnic and pantry goods along the trail – fresh seafood, gourmet cheese, farm-fresh vegetables and succulent seasonal berries. Make sure you pack an Esky and a picnic basket to bring home the bounty.

Buy the region's famous mussels and oysters fresh from Advance Mussel Supply and White Fisheries. Sample gourmet, handcrafted goats cheese at Drysdale Cheeses. Go DIY and pick your own at Tuckerberry Hill Berry Farm, or get fresh salad goods to go at Lonsdale Tomato Farm or the Farmer's Harvest. Add olives to your basket from your pick of groves: Lighthouse and Manzanillo.

Pick up best fresh, local and regional produce from the Bellarine Community Farmers’ Market, or purchase made-by-hand spices, dressings, condiments, granola and much more at Wildings Pantry Essentials.

Restaurants and cafes

Leave the foraging and preparation to the experts and sample the best of the region's produce at the Peninsula's celebrated restaurants and cafes.

Get a taste of old-world charm and regional flavours at Queenscliff's iconic Vue Grand Hotel and Athelstane House, or tuck into dishes inspired by local produce in part-provedore, part-cafe favourites Saltbush Fine Foods and Annie's Provedore and Produce Store.

A visit to the The Paddock or Piknik will challenge your roadhouse preconceptions: no bains-marie here, instead, freshly made gourmet cafe fare and coffee well worth stopping for.

Wineries

Sample an exciting range of cool-climate wines at the cellar doors of the peninsula's wineries. You'll find wineries large and small, pouring a tipple for all palates: pinot noir, pinot gris, pinot grigio, chardonnay, riesling, sauvignon blanc, zinfandel, gewürztraminer, shiraz, viognier, merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon.

Enjoy sweeping views across Swan Bay and cafe fare at Basils Farm, and pretty hinterland settings when you stay for lunch at award-winning winery restaurants like Bellarine Estate, Leura Park Estate, McGlashans Estate and Oakdene. Pinot fans should make a beeline for Yes Said the Seal (located at the Flying Brick Cider House) to sample the 'best pinot in Australia'.

Take a cruise down MacAdams Lane with its views of the You Yangs and pull up at Jack Rabbit Vineyard or Terindah Estate or savour the aromatic local wines at Barwon Heads Winestore and Noble Rot Wine Bar in Point Lonsdale.
