Mornington Peninsula is a special place just under an hour, South East of Melbourne
Vineyards were first planted in the 1970’s with the region providing perfect growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, today the maritime region on the Mornington Peninsula boasts over 200 small scale vineyards and over 50 cellar doors.
The Mornington Peninsula is a popular weekend getaway and a favourite destination for locals attracted to the abundance of local fruit and vegetable producers, and the high quality restaurants, bistros, cafes.
You will also enjoy the stunning scenery that this region is famous for, studded with golf courses, horse studs, cherry tress, strawberry fields, beaches and wineries with well manicured gardens and world class sculpture displays.
We have selected the very best dining experience for you to stop for lunch and 3 exceptional wine tasting events (includes one at your lunch venue)
Lunch Venue (weekdays) Rare Hare is a very special place located at Merrick’s North on the Mornington Peninsula. From the day of opening, 3 years ago it was bustling with locals and guests coming from Melbourne wondering what all the fuss was about.
So this is it, starting with the obvious creativity from the kitchen with Chef Guy Stanaway at the helm-think share plates with fresh seasonal produce served to guests on long timber tables in a stunning serene setting overlooking the Willow Creek vines
Your day starts with a 10am pick up from Melbourne City Hotel/accommodation by a friendly, local and fully qualified guide. Returning to your door at approximately 5pm
