Organised by Mornington Peninsula Gourmet and running from Friday (Mar 13) to Sunday (Mar 22), the fifth annual festival also features a kitchen garden workshop at Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove, the Festival of Olives at Olio Zito and a ‘Harvest on Horseback’ package at Lindenderry of Red Hill, which includes wine tasting on horseback.
Gourmet getaways are also available at Max’s at Red Hill Estate and the Big Blue Backyard retreat at exclusive St Andrew’s Beach.
Mornington Peninsula Tourism CEO Alva Hemming said the 2009 festival summed up the best of the Peninsula’s food and wine experience.
“Our restaurants have created superb tasting platters and degustation menus, but it’s also pleasing to see activities and workshops for a very wide audience,” she said.
“Kids, vegetarians, vegans, tea fanciers and real ale lovers will all find creative activities to enjoy during this event.”
