Prepare to be constantly inspired and delighted by this diverse, boot-shaped region; you are now entering ‘Foodie Heaven’. Your hosts own 27 acres of charming farm land with red fertile soil that allows them to grow and produce premium quality olives, grapes, herbs and veggies. They also raise sheep, chickens and fish, and turn amazing produce from local farmers into a range of delectable goodies. You’ll get a whole new perspective on the concept of ‘Paddock to Plate’.

Spend time in the kitchen with the chef; cooking in a wood fire oven, with wood collected from fallen timber on the property. What you do on the day depends on the season; you may try your hand at curing olives grown on the farm, create handmade sausages in natural skins, make mouth-watering gnocchi, master the art of sourdough bread, learn ways to cook with olives and olive oil, or successfully roast and make great coffee - all with a glass of local wine in hand.

Later you’ll sit back, relax and enjoy the surrounds while eating and drinking some of the finest food and wine the Mornington Peninsula has to offer.

After lunch take a drive down the road to sample cool climate wines with one of our favourite wine makers. Taste freshly made goats cheese from a local dairy or savour succulent strawberries and cherries from the fruit farms in the area. What more could a foodie want?
