The vignerons of the Mornington Peninsula celebrate the June Queen's Birthday long weekend with Winter Wine Weekend, a calendar 'must' since its inception in 1988. Many well known producers come together and launch the Weekend at one venue, all undercover – rarely will anyone find around 50 Mornington Peninsula producers in one spot at any one time.

The launch event is the Winter Wine Fest, at the Red Hill Showgrounds Saturday 11am - 4pm, which traditionally marks the beginning of the Winter Wine weekend program. More serious wine lovers can enrol in one (or all) of the tutored mini tasting seminars that will be held through the day with key winemakers. It is a great way to learn more about the Peninsula's benchmark wine varieties, growing techniques and their impact on flavour and wine styles. Tutored Tastings will be offered during the day. Fine wine, hearty food and live music will create a day to remember.

All weekend Peninsula wineries will throw open cellar doors and pull bungs on barrels to showcase the diversity of this renowned wine region. A plethora of food and wine opportunities with live music, crackling fires and a festive atmosphere at cellar doors around the region.

WHEN: Saturday 10th to Monday 12th June 2017

WHERE: Red Hill Showgrounds (Saturday Only) and participating wineries

COST: $70 Entry tickets include a complimentary Riedel tasting glass, all wine tastings, a tasting book and two entree size dishes with more available for purchase.

BOOKINGS: Via the MPVA website and phone as above.
