Enjoy the best food and wine on the Peninsula
Red Hill Estate

The Winter Wine Weekend is an annual event at the Red Hill showgrounds on the Mornington Peninsula. It's a great excuse to escape for a long weekend to enjoy everything the Mornington Peninsula has to offer.

Merricks General Wine Store

With over 50 wineries showcasing their wines from around the Mornington Peninsula, with some wineries offering new release wines for the first time.

Live music will fill the air, wine will fill the glasses and fine food will the belly. The atmosphere will be buzzing even for those not drinking. There is something about cold weekends and wineries that goes hand in hand with wood fires and the scent of a bold red wine (not that I drink, but I love the smell) great food and a lazy day.

I have never been to the Winter Wine Weekend, probably because I don't drink wine, but I do visit the local wineries for my family's birthdays and special occasions and know you're in good hands with the 8 establishments offering fine food.

Ten Minutes by Tractor

With your entry you can choose 2 entrée sized meals from either of the following chefs from; Montalto, Port Phillip Estate, Salix (Willow Creek Estate) Flinders Hotel, Paringa Estate, Ten Minutes By Tractor, The Long Table, Red Hill Cheese. You can view the menu choices at Mornington Peninsula Vignerons / Winter Wine Weekend.

Tickets are $55 pre booked or $60 on the day, entry includes a complementary Riedel tasting glass, all wine tastings, a tasting book and two entrée sized dishes.

Designated driver tickets are available at $40 pre booked and I strongly recommend you have a designated driver, not just because the police are everywhere on the Mornington Peninsula for the Wine Weekend, but to keep the weekend fun.

Whilst you're on the Mornington Peninsula, why not book a place to stay and make a weekend of it. Some great places to stay include Flinders Hotel newly built apartments, RACV Cape Shanack Resort, many bed and breakfast around Red Hill/ Arthurs Seat, including Max's at Red Hill Estate and Lindenerry are all but to name a few.
