Autumn is a wonderful time of year on the Peninsula, and what better way to enjoy this invigorating season than with a stroll through the rustic setting of T’Gallant Vineyards in Main Ridge on a Mushrooms in May tour commencing on Friday, May 3.
T’Gallant foragers will be enlightened on how to identify the different varieties of mushrooms — both palatable and poisonous — that are prevalent on the Peninsula before sitting down to a light lunch that includes grilled polenta and wild mushroom trifolati, and a delicious mushroom soup to warm you after your walk. Head chef Marco Vanuzzo will also be cooking you his smoked scormaza and wild mushroom wood-fired pizza while you experience a private wine-tasting showcasing T’Gallant’s new vintage wine.
Enjoy a fun and informative food and wine experience as you saunter through the T’Gallant vineyard, unearthing the mysteries of the fungi kingdom and hopefully finding the winery’s two favourites, the slippery jack and the pine mushroom.
Tours are available on Friday, May 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31 at 11am; Saturday, May 4, 11, 18 and 25 at 11am and 1pm; and Sunday, May 5, 12, 19 and 26 at 11am and 1pm.
It is the perfect Mother’s Day gift so book early to avoid disappointment. Teenagers aged 13 and over are welcome to attend with a parent/guardian. Call T’Gallant now to make your booking on 5931 1300.
