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.

Vinocotto Figs with Prosciutto

Sweet succulent figs ripened in the sun and local grapes make this simple dish from the team at Foxeys Hangout Winery all the more delectable. And if you grab some Proscuitto from Wollumbi Farm it's all the more delicious.


6 ripe, fresh local figs, cut in half
6 slices prosciutto or jamon, local or Italian/Spanish
1 tablespoon vinocotto (bought from a deli or home-made, see recipe below)

for home-made vinocotto

2 kg juicy grapes - red or white, but not pulpy grapes (such as fresh sultanas)
1 tbsp quality red wine vinegar (optional) 


for home-made vinocotto:  Smash grapes through a sieve as best you can to make about a litre of grape juice.  Reduce the grape juice in a saucepan to about ¼ its original volume (about 250ml). It should be intensely sweet and a little syrupy; don’t overcook it or it will burn. If the reduction is too sweet and not tart enough, add a little red wine vinegar. 


Brush figs with a little vinocotto. Cut slices of prosciutto/jamon in half and wrap around each fig half
