Raise a glass to our winemakers and food producers

Fifty Mornington Peninsula wineries, more than 200 premium wines, eight chefs and a cheesemaker will come together at Red Hill Showgrounds on Queen’s Birthday weekend for the annual Winter Wine Fest. Part of the Winter Wine Weekend, the festival is a celebration of the Peninsula’s wine and food producers, with the wines matched to menus created by the chefs using regionally sourced produce.

Throughout the weekend, vignerons will welcome visitors to warm cellar doors to taste new-release wines, visit old favourites and experience the seasonal offerings of the region. It all begins with the festival on Saturday, June 8, from 11am-4pm. Book your tickets at www.mpva.com.au until June 7 or at the door until sold out.
