The Peninsula VineHop Festival 2018 (VIC)
11am 17 Nov, 2018 to 4pm 18 Nov, 2018

The Mornington Peninsula has plenty going for it: natural beauty, surf breaks and great food, wine and beer among its many attractions.

The Peninsula VineHop Festival was launched in 2017 with a mission to celebrate the region's cool climate wines, craft beers and traditional ciders and returns in 2018 with a liberal sprinkling of music and entertainment too.

It's a two-day moving celebration that takes the brewery and winery tour concept and ramps it up to festival scale, involving eleven host venues and 22 wineries, breweries and cideries, with each venue hosting food trucks, live music or DJs and tastings.

The 2018 festival comes in two parts:

  • VineHop Saturday – choose from a selection of packages that take you between the participating venues on tour buses
  • PostHop Sunday Session – a degustation picnic event designed to give you a taste of the festival in a single location, Hickinbotham of Dromana (home of Hix Beer), featuring Kylie Auldist from The Bamboos


Tickets are on sale from August 3. For the Saturday, you can choose between: 

  • VineHop Tour tickets, which take you to four venues (there's four to pick from) – $74pp
  • VineHop Shuttle tickets, where you can jump on and off a shuttle bus at as many venues as you like – $74pp
  • General Admission, which give you access to venues if you've booked a private bus (no private cars are allowed) – $46pp
  • Private Adventure – there's a bunch of packages available for groups

Sunday's offering is:

  • PostHop Sunday Session, which includes a picnic style lunch specifically matched with a selection of beer, wine and cider – $72pp
  • PostHop Sunday Bus – an add-on to get you to and from Seaford Station, Mornington, Dromana or Rosebud
