Mornington Peninsula Cellar Doors make you especially welcome over the Queens Birthday Long Weekend (9–11 June). Christened Winter Wine Weekend, across the Peninsula cellar doors are abuzz with their freshly bottled 2006 vintage Pinots and Chardonnays alongside other very individual varieties, blends & styles.
The opening event is the Winter Wine Fest (Saturday 9 June, 11am – 4pm, Red Hill Recreation Reserve, Arthur’s Seat Road, Red Hill) an exhibition and tasting which traditionally marks the beginning of the annual extensive Winter Wine program. This site, which is familiar to many as home to Red Hill Market will be filled with Cellar Door wine tastings – 50 wineries offering over 200 wines to taste.
For food lovers there is delicious regional produce and meals to taste, while enjoying the sounds of local musicians. The popular wine seminars are free to attendees and are booked out very quickly on the day. They are a unique opportunity to taste wines, listen and learn, with a selection of the region’s key winemakers.
Entry to this year’s Winter Wine Fest is $35 and includes a complimentary Luigi Bormioli wine tasting glass with a comprehensive tasting booklet.
