Overview

Wine Food Farmgate Trail

Hit the Wine Food Farmgate Trail and celebrate the Mornington Peninsula's love affair with fine food, seasonal produce and the fruits of the vine. From the quiet beaches of Port Phillip Bay and the rugged coastline of Bass Strait to the bountiful orchards and rolling vineyards in the hinterland, the Peninsula is a treasure trove for adventurous foodies and wine lovers alike.

Sample the creations of groundbreaking chefs at acclaimed restaurants. Stock up on gourmet cheeses, berries, handmade sausages and organic vegies, then sip local varietals at wineries dotted across the hinterland.

Creative spirits

Explore the trail and visit the wine makers, brewers, cider makers and distillers who operate more than 50 cellar doors across the region. Chat with the owners at rustic, family-run wineries, sip 'n' savour ciders and local whiskeys, and visit famous vineyards that are home to sculpture gardens, produce stores and hatted restaurants.

On the table

Whether you're after fine-dining excellence, fresh seafood on the bay, or just the perfect coffee at a quaint cafe or bakery, the Wine Food Farmgate Trail offers up an expansive range of options. Savour long lunches with views of manicured gardens and sparkling bay waters, tuck into local pastries and sweet treats, or enjoy a meal matched with local wines, ciders and beers.

Sample and stock up

Traverse the Wine Food Farmgate Trail and discover the benefits of seasonal dining. Talk with local producers and get the lowdown on what's in season, how things are grown, and the best regional dishes. And once you've got the knowledge, it's time to fill the boot with the freshest honey, strawberries, cherries, vegies, olives, cheeses and seafood around. Want to learn more? Sign up for a tour or masterclass and keep exploring.
