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.

Now That's GIN-credible!

It’s all smiles at That Spirited Lot Distillers in Seaford, with the team taking out Best Gin in Australia at The Gin Guide Awards for 2022.

Awarded for their region-inspired Vintage on the Ninch, the accolade comes from the annual and globally-recognised event, highlighting exceptional spirits, distilleries and makers in the growing industry.

Receiving this top honour resulted from the Pinot-soaked spirit achieving the highest score of all entrants produced in Australia and therefore becoming the National Highest Scorer.

While Vintage on the Ninch was additionally crowned both a Winner and Geographic High Scorer for Australasia in the Traditional Gin (Aged Gin) category, there was further success for other creations from the family-operated distillery.

Dirty Ninch and Ninch Dry Gin were highly commended in Traditional Gin and Contemporary Gin categories.

For Kate Barton, Co-Founder and Sales Director of That Spirited Lot, the notable acknowledgements have led to a wave of pride for the business.

“It is such a trip to be recognised internationally for our flagship gin ‘Ninch’ done in three ways,” she said.

That Spirited Lot also received high commendation for Distillery Of The Year.

In 2022, the awards welcomed hundreds of entries from more than 30 countries, with recognition across seven diverse categories.

The independent event and celebration held in the U.K. is highly respected throughout the world between both trade and consumers.

Judging is conducted by experts as part of blind tastings, each of whom have career experience in gin production, marketing, events, mixology and more.
