Taste Test Bellarine Vs Mornington
Forget the VFL Grand Final or the World Cup soccer, the real head to head confrontation for 2018 will be the Battle of the Bay Degustation Wine Dinner pitting fierce rivals the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsulas against one another.

To be staged at 360Q restaurant at Queensliff, this inaugural event will seek to determine which region has the best wines.

You'll be the judge as you feast on 5-courses, lovingly prepared by a team of chefs who come from both sides of the Bay, and featuring matched wines from Ocean Eight on the Mornington and Baie Wines from the Bellarine Peninsula.

Opened in October 2016 in the Queenscliff harbourside precinct 360Q is the baby of well-known chef and restaurateur Barry Iddles who worked on the Mornington Peninsula for a number of years before crossing the Bay and arriving at Queenscliff on the Bellarine.
