Wine Events on the Mornington Peninsula

Peninsula Piers and Pinots

11 Mar 2018 - 11 Mar 2018

Labor Day Weekend Sunday annually in March at Flinders Foreshore from 12 - 3pm 

Mornington Peninsula is uniquely situated with 3 breezes delivered via Port Phillip Bay, Western Port and Bass Strait. The effect creates ideal conditions for the region's pinots - wines with outstanding flavors, balanced natural acidity and fine tannins.  This event has been held annually on the Sunday of the Victorian Labour Day long weekend, since 2002 and is a very popular wine event. 

  

Mornington Peninsula Pinot producers will gather by the sea at our annual Labour Day weekend showcase to taste a range of Pinots along with local food to purchase from George Bass Cafe (part of Flinders Hotel group), Calamari Brothers, soft drinks and coffee from Red Hill Roast and music by the ever popular Rob Papp add to a fabulous festive vibe. A wonderful range of wines wwill be available to taste - or to buy a glass to enjoy along with a seaside lunch. The annual Piers & Pinots Yacht Race, conducted by the Flinders Yacht Club, will also be held on the day.

Mornington Peninsula Piers & Pinots is held at Flinders foreshore adjacent to the pier. Tickets are $40 per person and each ticket includes a complimentary Riedel tasting glass, tasting notes and all wine tastings between 12noon - 3pm.  BOOK HERE
