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.

A new reason to celebrate

Resulting from the outstanding work of dedicated survey teams and leaders of the industry, Mornington Peninsula’s vineyards are officially free from the deadly grapevine pest phylloxera. Over the past four years, hundreds of grapevines have been examined and inspected for the existence of this unwanted guest. With no evidence to verify its presence in the region, our beautiful vines can now be deemed phylloxera-free.

So what does this mean for the industry? Easier viticultural trade with other regions and increased confidence for growers to continue implementing biosecurity strategies represent some of the most significant benefits from this announcement. Our grape growers, vignerons and vineyard workers are a true inspiration throughout the region, as they persist in cultivating and distributing their produce to the highest of standards.

For the many admirers who visit our countless vineyards from summer through to spring, we invite you to once again witness the exceptional. Our grapes have never been more alluring, as they are moulded into taste sensations to satisfy indefinitely. We look forward to seeing you soon under the warm summer sun, enjoying a signature glass of vino whilst gazing out to unmatched panoramic views.
