The tiny pocket of Main Ridge and Red Hill boasts as many as five restaurants that have been endowed with hats in the esteemed The Age Good Food Guide. Make a booking for long lunches with friends or degustation dinners at La Petanque, Montalto, Port Phillip Estate, Ten Minutes by Tractor, Paringa Estate and The Long Table.

All-season al fresco

Take a break from the grape and fill up on seasonal plates at Heronswood Estate, Flinders Hotel, Merricks General Store and Somers General Store.
