This Spring, the Mornington Peninsula is hosting its first beer, wine and cider festival! This spectacular event will take place in ten fabulous locations across the Mornington Peninsula.
Held on the weekend of Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November 2017, the Peninsula VineHop Festival will showcase some of the Peninsula's most popular venues while also shining the spotlight on lesser-known, hidden gems.
"The Mornington Peninsula is well-known for its wineries and is also celebrated for its microbreweries and cideries. We are bringing a selection of these together for a fun-filled festival weekend, so people can experience the diversity of the Peninsula," said Lisa MacGregor, Event Producer of the Peninsula VineHop Festival.
The ten festival locations are Blue Range Estate Wines, Dromana Estate, Hickinbotham Estate and Hix Beer, Merricks General Wine Store at Baillieu, Mock Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula Brewery, Nazaaray Estate Winery, Phaedrus Estate, Red Hill Brewery and Red Hill Estate. With such a diverse selection of venues to explore, there will be something to excite lovers of craft beer, wine, cider and even gin! And adding to the festive atmosphere are three pop-up bars - Jetty Road Brewery at Dromana Estate and Bass and Flinders Distillery and Mr Banks Brewery at Red Hill Estate.
In addition to sampling some of the Peninsula's finest brews, festivalgoers will gain exclusive 'behind the scenes' access at some venues! Baillieu vineyard, which is rarely open to the public, will be opening its doors over the weekend and the Mornington Peninsula Brewery will host the festival at its production site. Mornington Peninsula Brewery and Red Hill Brewery will also be developing special brews exclusively for the VineHop Festival.
At each location, there will be live bands or DJs spinning awesome tracks, plus a tantalising selection of food, either through the venue's own restaurant or from some of Melbourne's best food trucks!
This is an unmissable event for Melbourne's many craft beer lovers, wine connoisseurs, cider sippers and foodies - start planning your ultimate VineHop weekend now!
