Wine Food Farmgate Trail

Find Mornington Peninsula wineries, farm produce, restaurants and more

One of life's greatest pleasures is the Mornington Peninsula - a place where you can eat, drink, forage, shop, learn, and tour. Wine Food Farmgate reveals the Mornington Peninsula’s most delicious secrets. How do you get a sensational seasonal snapshot of the Mornington Peninsula? Just follow the Mornington Peninsula Wine Food Farmgate trail, where you can eat, forage, sip, shop, learn and tour the very best of this region.

Just drive through our region, and the Peninsula's love affair with wine, fresh produce, seafood and bountiful food on the table is quickly revealed. Taste it, sip it, pick it, catch it, take it home with you. Summer brings berries and cherries, while autumn is time for apples and pears.  In winter, forage through the hinterland for seasonal produce, warm up with a meal beside a roaring fire or enjoy your favourite tipple overlooking glorious countryside. Stride out on a beach walk then reward yourself with hot soup or a woodfired pizza and a glass of red wine in a seaside village. Return in the Spring for crisp, fresh vegies and cherry blossom. 


You will find many wine, food and farmgate experiences hidden away throughout the Mornington Peninsula. You just need to know where to look. To help you discover them, we've brought the finest together to create the Mornington Peninsula Wine Food Farmgate Trail.

Hats off to Five Mornington Peninsula Restaurants

There is plenty to celebrate with five Mornington Peninsula restaurants recently taking out awards for the Age Good Food Guide 2018. These regional heroes are all surrounded by picturesque vineyard settings bringing together the best in food and wine.

Again the highly acclaimed Ten Minutes by Tractor has shone under the fabulous Chef Stuart Bell,  receiving 2 hats for yet another year is an outstanding achievement. In the undulating Red Hill area Port Phillip Estate, Paringa Estate and Montalto are long standing hatted restaurants and rightfully held their own again in the awards. Joining them for the first time is the equally as impressive new kid on the block, Doot Doot Doot at the opulent Jackalope Hotel. While Jackalope only opened their doors earlier this year they are fast becoming a well awarded all-rounder, proving that you can have it all - with 5 star luxury accommodation and dining to boot.

For the voracious traveller seeking out only the best, it would be worth adding these to your culinary bucket list - if you haven’t already.
