THE WINTER WINE FESTIVAL - SATURDAY 8 JUNE

In 2024 we're launching a new way to experience the region's best with tickets priced at $80per person which includes wine tastings from 40 of our region's wineries and a RIEDEL glass to take home.

This is a rare opportunity to experience Mornington Peninsula wineries in one place at one time, highlighting the incredible diversity in wines resulting from the climate and terroir unique to the region.

Evolving our food experience, the 'Village Green' will be humming with the theatre of our new food partners:

  • Long Paddock Raclette Bar – bubbling Raclette served individually onto artisan sourdough with cornichons, pickled onions and smoked ham. Cheese boards will also be available with traditional cheeses.
  • Red Gum BBQ – bringing their wood smoker to serve a trio of sliders, brisket burger, a rib and slaw.
  • Pinchy’s Lobster Bar – choose from lobster rolls in toasted brioche buns, crab tacos, a vegan option of a lion’s mane taco and truffle fries.

A Cassoulet Lunch - available ONLY if you have a ticket for Saturday's Festival, we will be hosting a strictly limited 200 tickets for a long-table, farmhouse lunch of duck cassoulet & crusty bread with a Millers fruit tart to finish at $59 per person.  Guests will have access to "The Vintage Bar" where we'll be selling back vintages, rare & fine or just something special, which 12 of our wineries have chosen from their cellars and available to buy by the glass.
