It’s on again, and this time the Mornington Peninsula Vignerons Association presents its Peninsula Piers & Pinots event with even more style, flavour and first-class tastings than ever. Held annually since 2002 on the Sunday of the Labour Day long weekend, this Peninsula food and wine-lovers’ celebration showcases the region’s outstanding and flavourful pinots with pizazz. 

Incredibly popular and dedicated to this balanced natural acidity and fine tannin vino, Peninsula Piers & Pinots brings together people from far and wide to taste and converse with like-minded wine appreciators. There’ll be a wonderful range of wines available to taste and enjoy alongside a simply stunning seaside lunch. Food from Georgie Bass Café, which is part of the Flinders Hotel Group, Calamari Brothers, Red Hill Cheese and Harry’s Conchilla — which you’ll find down by the pier — will satisfy your hunger, while handmade icy poles and soft drinks will keep the kids happy. Fabulous coffee from Moto Café delivers the caffeine, while live music adds to the festival vibe.

Peninsula Piers & Pinots is held alongside the Flinders pier in one of the most beautiful parts of the Peninsula. Participating wineries include 100 Years on Stanley, Baillieu Vineyard, Dexter Wines, Dromana Estate, Elgee Park Wines, Handpicked Wines, Kerri Greens, Kyberd Hills, Mantons Creek, Montalto, Moorooduc Estate, Morning Sun Vineyard, Myrtaceae, Nazaaray Estate, Ocean Eight, Paringa Estate, Pt Leo Estate, Quealy Wines, Rahona Valley, Red Hill Estate, Stonier, Tucks, Willow Creek Vineyard, Yabby Lake Vineyard, and Yal Yal Estate.

So if you’re searching for a uniquely Mornington Peninsula event that brings the three breezes delivered via Port Phillip Bay, Western Port and Bass Strait together over wine, food and crisp conversation, then Mornington Peninsula Piers & Pinots on March 10 is for you. Pre-book on the MPVA website or purchase a ticket on the day. Tickets will be available until sold out. At just $40 a person, which includes a complimentary Riedel tasting glass, tasting notes and all wine tastings between noon and 3pm, there’ll be plenty of flavour and fun in the sun. Cheers!
