Peninsula Vine Hop Festival 2018

Get ready for your taste buds to dance, at the Peninsula VineHop Festival

With most ticket options to the VineHop Saturday selling out quickly, attention is turning to the Peninsula VineHop Festival’s foodie-focused event, the PostHop Sunday Session on Sunday 18 November.

With a relaxed ‘Sunday Session’ feel, the PostHop Sunday will be a five-course food and drink pairing event held at Hickinbotham of Dromana, with a focus upon maximising flavour in a relaxed environment.

According to event organiser Lisa MacGregor, everyone who attends the PostHop Sunday event will be given a ‘Degustation Passport’ entitling them to a five-course picnic style lunch, to enjoy at their own leisure throughout the day.

“Each course has been specifically matched with a premium Peninsula beer, wine or cider, which can be purchased on the day,” said Lisa.

Passport holders can opt for vegetarian options, or indulge on the following degustation menu:

  • A selection of three Boatshed cheeses, served with crackers (can be GF)
    Matched with Hickinbotham Estate Merlot or a Mornington Peninsula Brewery VinAle
  • Grilled fish taco, corn tortilla with shredded cabbage, lime marinated corn, spring onion, pineapple, salsa and chilli mayo (GF)
    Matched with Hickinbotham Estate Pinot Gris or a Red Hill Brewery Wheat Beer
  • Chicken and chorizo paella (GF)
    Matched with Hickinbotham Estate Tempranillo Joven or a Hix Pale Ale
  • Asian style pork belly skewers served with slaw (GF)
    Matched with Hickinbotham Estate Pinot Rose or a Ten Sixty One Cider
  • Chocolate brownie, served with caramel sauces and cream (can be GF)
    Matched with Hickinbotham Estate Noble Sauvignon Blanc or a Hix Barley Wine

Set in the stunning surrounds of Hickinbotham Estate, the PostHop Sunday Session will feature live performances from Kylie Auldist, the lead lady from the Bamboos.

A mix of 22 Mornington Peninsula-based beer, wine spirit and cider brands will feature across 11 venues at the VineHop Saturday event. And every venue taking part on Saturday will feature live music and food trucks.
