Bernard Fanning will headline an exciting array of Australian musicians when The Peninsula Picnic returns to Mornington Racecourse on Saturday, March 28. The former Powderfinger frontman will be supported by newcomers Caravãna Sun and Hollow Coves, local boys The Meltdown, and ARIA-nominated Mama Kin Spender, while some of the Peninsula’s finest restaurants, wineries and producers will come together to showcase the region’s food and wine excellence.
Off the back of opening its new cellar door last December, Ten Minutes by Tractor will make its debut at The Peninsula Picnic. It will be joined by Rare Hare at Willow Creek Vineyard, which makes some of the most elegant single-vineyard wines on the Peninsula, while Merricks General Wine Store will showcase its holistic offering of wines as well as delicious French-inspired cuisine. There will be top drops from the likes of Montalto, Polperro, and Prancing Horse, and for punters who prefer spirits and beer to the delights of the grape, Gordon’s Pink Gin and St Andrews Beach Brewery will provide drinks all day. Delicious offerings from the likes of DOC Mornington, Tucks, Casa de Playa, and Green Olive at Red Hill will be available to satisfy all appetites.
Sessions with top winemakers, cellar door tastings, market stalls from Peninsula artisans and kids’ activities round out the impressive offering and celebration of local produce and Australian artists, all in the racecourse’s leafy surrounds.
So get your friends together, pack your picnic rug and have your dancing shoes at the ready.
