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.

6 ways to show dad he’s the best!

Show dad he’s the bee’s knees on Father’s Day. This year it’s time to up the ante by spoiling dad with great food and making new memories together. Why? Because dads are one of a kind, they make sacrifices that go unnoticed until we grow up ourselves, they influence us, protect us and try their best to help us become well-rounded adults. And while a voucher or a new set of handkerchiefs wouldn’t go unappreciated, we think dad deserves the gift of great company.

Father’s, father figures and all those that give wisdom to our children, we salute you!

Here are some ideas for spoiling dad this September 1st which all involve spending quality time together…

Arthurs Seat Eagle

Combine soaring through the trees in a gondola with a classic car show then throw in a BBQ and you get Arthurs Seat Eagle on Father’s Day. From 10am-3pm there are activities for the kids including face painting which is sure to be a hit. More>>

Two Bays Brewing Co

If you haven’t discovered this hidden gem already then there is no better time than Father’s Day. Dads get a free tasting paddle (4x 150ml beers of your choice) to enjoy with pizzas. On top of this everything in the taproom is 100% gluten free which makes it a safe choice for all. More>>

Searoad Ferries

Do things different with a Blokes High Tea. You’ll be sailing across the bay indulging in an especially blokey array of treats like lamb pie, pork sliders, doughnuts and local beer. Keep an eye out the window as there have been some amazing wildlife sightings in the bay lately (*whales*). More>>

Blue Mini Café

Take dad out for brekkie or lunch at this Rosebud café that is more than meets the eye and dad will be treated to a complimentary beer with any purchase from the ‘All Day Brunch’ menu. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere right?! Live music by Scott Reimers will set the mood from 11am-3pm. It’s sure to be a popular option so bookings are essential. More>>

Red Gum BBQ

Treat dad to the Father's Day meal of his dreams. A set menu on the day showcases some of their favourite southern BBQ goodies and includes a sparkling wine or Red Gum BBQ Pilsner on arrival. Think pulled Pork, beef brisket and chicken + 3 glorious sides, cornbread, pickle and dessert! More>>

Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron

Spectacular views over Port Phillip Bay (they don’t get much better than this!) and a great vantage point to watch the yachts sail on by is guaranteed here. They’re dialing up the good vibes on dad’s day with a special set menu tailored for meat lovers including marinated ribs and wings, steak and a chef’s surprise for dessert. More>>

You had better tell that special man in your life to start gathering his dad jokes as it’s going to be an epic Father’s Day!
