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. 

But first, find out more about the Wine Food Farmgate Trail.

Cherry Heaven

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 27/11/2013

Trevor Holmes is extremely proud of the fact that his pick-your-own cherry orchard is the oldest in Victoria, and possibly Australia.

Originally an apple orchard, Trevor's father turned to growing cherries when the cartage bill to send his apples to the Melbourne Market exceeded the return on the sale of the apples.  He decided there and then never to send fruit to market again.  The following cherry season he put a sign out on the corner of a nearby road and sold the entire crop without leaving his farm. And the customers loved picking the fruit themselves.  Mind you, they were only .05cents

Must admit; the Big Brekky at Blue Mini Cafe goes down a treat.  The poached eggs are truly fantastic, plus there are great vegetarian options

We just loved meeting "the kids" at Main Ridge Dairy recently. Within hours of being born, they certainly are frolicking like experts!
