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.

Vanilla Panna Cotta with Strawberries

Light and luscious, fresh from the fields of Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm


300ml thickened cream
1 cup milk
75g caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
2½ tsp gelatine
600g strawberries, washed, hulled & sliced
2 punnets raspberries, washed
2 punnets blueberries, washed
2 punnets blackberries, washed
60ml orange juice
2 tbsp icing sugar
Icing sugar for dusting
6 stemless wine glasses


Combine the cream, milk and caster sugar in a small saucepan and stir over a low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the vanilla essence and remove from the heat. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Place two tablespoons of the boiling water in a heat-proof bowl and sprinkle with the gelatine. Remove the saucepan from the heat and place the heat proof bowl of gelatine in the simmering water, stirring until the gelatine is dissolved. Combine the gelatine and cream mixtures and stir gently. Pour the mixture evenly into the 6 wine glasses. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for about 6 hours or until set. Meanwhile, combine the strawberries, orange juice and icing sugar in a medium bowl, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for an hour.

Once the panna cotta has set, spoon the strawberry mixture evenly into the glasses. Prior to serving, pile a handful of mixed raspberries, blueberries and blackberries on top and dust lightly with icing sugar.
