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.

Autumn Colour on the Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula is a beautiful part of the world and we want to share a little #couchtravel inspiration for when we see you next. We have collated our top 7 insta-worthy destinations that showcase the delicious rust and amber coloured palette of autumn. With the golden hues of autumn light, no filters required!

There is nothing more exhilerating that seeing autumn transform the landscape of The Enchanted Adventure Garden, especially if seen from above as the world wizzes past in a blur of delicious colour on The Big Zip.

Autumn sunsets from the hilltop pool of Peninsula Hot Springs cast the view in a glorious golden light unlike any other season. Dream of that romantic moment in the still beauty with a loved one soon.

See and taste the deep reds of Crittenden Estate. Imagine a vineyard meander followed by a glorious glass of their signature Geppetto Pinot Noir- red will become your new favourite colour.

Watch the sun sink into the Bass Straight in a melting pot of pinks, burnt gold and reds with an autumn walk along the Cape Schanck Boardwalk.

Look forward to times ahead when we can dine amongst the autumn colour that wrap this beautiful wine stop at Merricks General Wine Store. Cellar door, art or food, what more could you want?

Let us share with you the abundant deep purples of vintages ready for harvest, a virtual exploration of the grapes, olives, herbs and veggies of the season in the family run business of Green Olive at Red Hill.
