When was the last time you really explored the food and wine experiences of the Mornington Peninsula? Did you realise there is so much on offer? You can pick up fresh salad vegies or pick your own strawberries – they are in season now! Gather some olives, apples, cheese, chocolates and bread, grab a bit of salami and some pickles, or a local steak for the barbie and you have all the ingredients for a great spring picnic. Of course there is great fresh seafood as well…
Spring is the season for snapper and mussels and with more than 200km of coastline the Mornington Peninsula has some great options. You can pick up locally made beer, cider and spirits as well as great local wine (of course). There’s a plethora of award winning and very tasty tipples to try.
If you haven’t got onto the Wine Food Farmgate Trail yet, you are missing out on all this delicious fare. All direct from the maker/grower with low carbon miles – you can’t get any fresher than that!
Alternatively you can find a funky café, groovy brewery or wine bar, or all manner of restaurants where all the sourcing has already been done for you.
With 75 Wine, Food and Farmgate experiences now to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start – that’s why you need the map! The latest one is out now. Pick one up from your local Visitor Information Centre, or phone 035987 3078 to have one mailed to your door.
