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.

Spoil Mum with a Little Mornington Peninsula Style Love

Mums are amazing – we all know that they have one of the hardest jobs in the world and right now, more than ever they are juggling many roles and need a little extra love. Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to say thank you. To get those creative ideas started, we have done the research and gathered a selection of innovative ways you can still say thanks without leaving home.

Find mum the perfect way to bring inspiration into the home with a gorgeous glass creation from Gordon Studio Glassblowers, explore their collection online for you to find the piece she will fall in love with. The creative team are offering free domestic shipping and gift wrapping of their works, sent directly to her ready to relish

All mums deserve a little pampering. While we may not be able to book them in for a hands-on treatment right now, some of our local skincare experts are still able to send their delectable products straight to your door. Olieve and Olie have a beautiful collection of body products handmade on the Mornington Peninsula, Green Olive Red Hill offer a luxurious series of skincare giftsets made with ingredients from their farm and Endota has a wide range of spa products to nourish and rejuvenate skin (what’s not to love!).

Want to give her a sumptuous meal she doesn’t have to make herself? Merricks General Wine Store and Many Little have a great range of home cooked, nourishing meals ready to take away that will make her day (or week, if you buy a few and stock the freezer!). You can order with their teams and pick up for a special meal to celebrate together (ok we did promise without leaving home, but we thought these take away options were too good not to include). They even have her covered for wine.

Perhaps some luscious treats for mum that the whole family can enjoy too works for your tribe, visit the new drive through market on site at Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm to pick up  fresh berries, takeaway ice-cream and some other delicious morsels – it will sweeten the day for everyone.

From their cellars to yours (if they make it that far!) many of our talented Mornington Peninsula wineries are offering wine orders online while they temporarily close their cellar doors.  Pick up a phone or go straight to their websites to order mum her favourite Pinot Noir, Chardonnay or Pinot Gris, T'Gallant, Crittenden Estate, Montalto, Stonier, Main Ridge Estate or Paringa Estate are amongst those where you can find her ideal sip.

Pt Leo Estate has collaborated with a local florist for the dream combo to help you celebrate the wonderful women in your life, selecting a wine pack perfect for her accompanied by one of three unique native wildflower arrangements to add to your pack. Check in with the team to establish timings for daily deliveries across the Peninsula as well as set dates to specific Melbourne suburbs.

Can’t choose what one thing to get mum? Why not a hamper that offers all the flavours of the Peninsula – at Peninsula Gourmet Emporium you will find a treasure house of scrumptious ingredients to spoil her properly and they will deliver it directly to your door. Is tea more her thing? Keep her calm with the help of Blue Mini Eatery Emporium and Events, they have a beautiful range of teas in gorgeous tins that can be mail ordered to you.
