With many ticket options to the VineHop Saturday selling out quickly, attention is turning to the Peninsula VineHop Festival’s foodie-focused PostHop Sunday Session on Sunday, November 18. With a chilled-out vibe, the PostHop Sunday Session will be a five-course food and drink pairing at Hickinbotham of Dromana, with a focus on great food, an array of Peninsula beverages and entertainment from Kylie Auldist from the Bamboos.

Event organiser Lisa MacGregor said everyone attending the session will be given a ‘Degustation Passport’ entitling them to a five-course picnic-style lunch to enjoy at their leisure throughout the day. “Each course has been specifically matched with a premium Peninsula beer, wine or cider, which can be purchased on the day,” said Lisa. Passport holders can opt for vegetarian options or indulge in the following menu: 

 A selection of three Boatshed cheeses, served with crackers (can be GF) matched with Hickinbotham Estate Merlot or a Mornington Peninsula Brewery VinAle;

 Grilled fish taco, corn tortilla with shredded cabbage, lime-marinated corn, spring onion, pineapple, salsa and chilli mayo (GF) matched with Hickinbotham Estate Pinot Gris or a Red Hill Brewery Wheat Beer; 

 Chicken and chorizo paella (GF) matched with Hickinbotham Estate Tempranillo Joven or a Hix Pale Ale; 

 Asian-style pork belly skewers served with slaw (GF) matched with Hickinbotham Estate Pinot Rose or a Ten Sixty One Cider; or, 

 Chocolate brownie served with caramel sauces and cream (can be GF) matched with Hickinbotham Estate Noble Sauvignon Blanc or a Hix Barley Wine. 

Venture Bus Lines is providing buses to the session from Seaford North Recreation Reserve, 50 Railway Pde, Seaford; Mornington Primary School, 9 Vale St, Mornington; Dromana Recreation Reserve, 47 Pier St, Dromana; and Olympic Park Recreation Reserve, 80 Besgrove St, Rosebud.
