Food & Wine

Food and wine just doesn’t get any better than this.

Whether you’ve got a day or a week, the Mornington Peninsula is total temptation. You’ll find market gardens, farmgates, farmers markets, artisan food producers, winery restaurants and casual cafes.

The vineyards here are famous – but there are new and exciting tastes to enjoy at craft breweries, cider makers and distilleries. Fill your picnic basket at a farmgate or share a regional platter at a winery restaurant. Take high tea, book a cooking class or savour a fine dining experience in a Chef’s Hat restaurant – it’s all here.

Fine style food and wine with sensational seasonal regional menus.

Our rich red soils grow the most abundant seasonal produce. Our beautiful natural environment creates an enviable lifestyle. All this has attracted the most passionate winemakers and top city chefs seeking inspiration and a sea change.

This is one of the few regions in Victoria where you can choose casual cafés, chic restaurants and Chef ’s Hat fine dining both in our coastal villages and our hinterland hamlets.

You’ll find a award winning restaurants, casual piazzas overlooking kitchen gardens, acclaimed outdoor sculpture and private summer picnics in beautiful estate, or there’s casual fare on the sunny deck, alongside beautiful accommodation.

Find an elegant dining room, with decks and terraces overlooking vineyards so close that you feel like you’re dining amid vines. The menus are adventurous and creative, with local produce including mussels, whiting, beef, artisan cheeses and handpicked berries.

A reputation for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, all with a true sense of place, has been gained by the region. Cellar door cafés serves a daily lunch of simple, seasonal dishes to complement the wines.
