Wine tasting is a fun days outing -traipsing from cellar door to cellar door, tasting the best of a region, sometimes sampling from the barrel, touring behind the scenes or chatting at the wine pour directly with the winemaker. It’s an experience that never quiet translated over a ‘zoom’ tasting.
Staying close to home and taking a day trip does not have to mean only one region as Victorians can sample two amazing wine regions in just one day – the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsulas. With superb, locally grown and produced wines, a ton of cellar doors and a quick connection across the bay by ferry, it’s a daycation worth doing.
Wineries are nearby and two or three cellar doors can be reasonably achieved on each peninsula.
