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.

Passion and excellence has never shone brighter.  Success has come in waves for distillers along the Mornington Peninsula, with both JimmyRum and Chief’s Son Distillery taking out notable accolades at the 2021 Australian Distilled Spirits Awards. Time to celebrate? Of course, we say!

Bringing home a total of four medals and two trophies on the night, JimmyRum has paved the way for complete acclaim, as they were recognised for their outstanding selection of rums to warm the soul. Among these awards was the esteemed honour of Champion Victorian Distillery, an exceptional achievement for founder and chief ideas man James and the extended team.

Alongside this crowning, JimmyRum received three gold medals for their Silver, Oaked and Spiced rum, one silver medal for their Navy rum as well as the Champion Cane Spirit trophy for JimmyRum Silver.

For James, these awards are a true reflection of the dedication and commitment put in by all those at Jimmy Rum.  “The team can see the hard work we put in to survive COVID, to grow the brand and to grow our products is paying off.”

Also making headlines on the night was Chief’s Son Distillery, who was presented with the Champion Australian Small Batch Spirits Award.

As a celebration of brilliance in taste and outstanding expertise, the 2021 Australian Distilled Spirits Awards recognises both experienced and new creators who make up the dynamic industry. We are so proud of all our Mornington Peninsula distillers, and cannot wait to see visitors back supporting these businesses in the summertime, sipping away glorious sun-drenched afternoons and making memories to last eternally.
