Stunning Point Nepean National Park at Portsea will play host to the Mornington Peninsula Food+Wine Festival on 24 February 2018.
For one beautiful summers day, the historic grounds of Portsea’s Point Nepean Park will be transformed into a giant outdoor lounge for a sensational day of food, wine and entertainment – the best part is, you’re invited!
Having grown up on the Peninsula and lived in the area for most of his life, Tristan Clarke, of Nepean Events, is realising his vision for a festival celebrating all that the Peninsula is famous for.
Having attended festivals all over the country, Clarke says, “I believe that with all its scenic beauty, combined with the top quality wines, beer and food produced on the Mornington Peninsula, this is the perfect place for a fantastic summer event that brings it and us all together!”
The Mornington Peninsula is known for its bountiful premium produce, including wine, beer, cider, meat, seafood, fruit, cheese, vegetables and more.
It’s a place where the lush green vines of some of Australia’s best Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc grow.
It’s where sea meets land, and land meets sea; creating a crescendo of gastronomic experiences.
Mornington Peninsula Food+Wine Festival brings all these delights together for one day, in one place, for your pleasure.
With entertainment from musicians Nick Barker, Cousin Leonard, Lachlan Bryan, Kris Schroeder, Robb Papp, Lucky-Louise, The Boys and more, your senses will be tantalised as you sip on your new favourite beverage, savour a range of delectable treats and move to the music. All while taking in the gorgeous coastal scenery and panoramic views of Bass Strait and Port Phillip Bay.
A hand-selected range of the wineries, breweries, cider-houses and spirit-makers will serve a delectable cross-section of beverages to cater for everyone’s tastes.
The festival will also give you the opportunity to experience the region’s greatest gastronomic delights, as Peninsula chefs show their skills with premium local produce. Come wander the market area for all the quality fare from the region’s best artisan producers.
Showcasing the fabulous food, wonderful wine and extraordinary entertainment for which the Peninsula is famous, the festival is the place to enjoy the sunshine and salt air as producers parade their wares and vignerons display the fruits of their passion.
Some of the finest musicians the Peninsula has to offer will be on hand to perform a mix of sublime sounds for you to enjoy, so all you have to do is bring your family, friends and the picnic rug and sprawl out in the summer sunshine within the park’s idyllic grounds overlooking the bay.
Clarke says, “The Mornington Peninsula Food+Wine Festival captures the feel of the Peninsula and all its glory in a one day event that will be the perfect day out for all food and wine enthusiasts, and a real highlight of our summer.”
