Mornington Peninsula’s Winter Wine Weekend rescheduled to Saturday, 24th July

Due to Victoria’s latest circuit breaker lockdown, the uncertainty that it brings for the coming weeks and the planning required to bring the event to life, Mornington Peninsula’s Winter Wine Weekend has been rescheduled to Saturday, 24th July. In true mid-winter, wine lovers across Victoria will pull on their warmest jumpers and winter wellies for a day in picturesque Red Hill, relishing world-class wines and some of the state’s most celebrated food.

As the event is no longer taking place on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, it will be going ahead focusing on Saturday’s event, The Winter Wine Festival in the Pavilions at Red Hill Showgrounds. Mornington Peninsula Wine will look to hold Sunday’s Long Lunch at the Pavilion at another time.

Held from 10:30am to 4:00pm, The Winter Wine Festival will be a showcase exhibition and tasting offering attendees a rare opportunity to taste over 200 premium wines from 45 Mornington Peninsula wineries.

Designed as a progressive tasting, three sheds will be transformed into sub-regional experiences, allowing groups to circulate from one to the next after 90 minutes. Each shed will house two restaurants that have created bespoke menus of entree-sized dishes from regionally sourced produce and designed around the wines. Restaurants include Montalto, Many Little (Polperro), Paringa Estate, Barmah Park, Lindenderry Red Hill and Pt Leo Estate.

All tickets purchased for Saturday’s event have been transferred to the new date unless requested otherwise.
