Overview

Red Hill & Main Ridge

You'll be surprised at how this compact micro region sustains such sumptuous vineyards, restaurants, food stores, artisan producers and orchards.

Hedonistic hinterland

Criss-cross the hillsides laced with vines and olive groves to meet local food producers and experience farm-to-table dining. Tuck into a cheese platter at Red Hill Cheeses, enjoy a cheeky drop at Red Hill Brewery and sample the intriguing wine bread at Red Hill Bakery. Stop in for all-day tapas and fresh produce at Green Olive at Red Hill or pick up eggs and raw honey at 2 Macs Farm. Finally, meet the goats that make the milk that makes the cheese at Main Ridge Dairy.

Hop from one cellar door to the next and compare pinot noir, pinot gris and chardonnay. Take the shuttle service or sign up for a personalised wine tour instead of driving. Move on from wine country to cider territory. Visit Mock Orchards to sample a range of bio-dynamic ciders and non-alcoholic drinks.

Star-studded dining

Dine on exquisite cuisine made from fresh local produce and indulge in sublime degustation menus. Treat yourself to a dinner at La Petanque, Port Phillip Estate, Paringa Estate and Montalto, or aim even higher and sample the creations at Ten Minutes by Tractor, awarded two hats by The Age Good Food Guide.

Pick a winner

Fill a bucket with strawberries at Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm, or pluck cherries at roadside farms. Take home treats from MP Gourmet members in the Red Hill village centre.

Select a handmade memento of your stay in this creative core from the pioneering Red Hill Community Market (monthly) or from a small gallery or workshop offering coloured glass art, sculpture and paintings.

Wine lovers unite at the annual Winter Wine Weekend in June. Join in the fun and sample more than 200 premium wines from some 50 wineries before exploring local cellar doors.
