Tuck's Ridge features hearty, produce-driven food, lawn chairs and picnic rugs, and a range of wine whose recommended consume date is right there in the name: Now. The best seat in the house is the tree swing, which could comfortably seat four, but two will have plenty of space for their wine and food. And you definitely want to make space for both. Food is simple, for the most part, allowing premium ingredients like slow-roast pork shoulder and hot-smoked salmon to shine. Kids can get their energy out running up and down the hill while adults savour their meals.
Melburnians love taking day trips or weekends away down the Peninsula. There are wineries aplenty, beautiful beaches, rolling hills, first-class food and a peaceful escape from the hubbub of Melbourne, just an hour away.
Hang on a second – are we talking about Mornington Peninsula? Or the Bellarine Peninsula? Both have spectacular views and gorgeous beaches. Both are foodie hubs and wine destinations. And both are an easy drive from Melbourne, making them the perfect place for a day trip or weekend away.
Herewith, we pit Peninsula against Peninsula to see which 'Ninsh comes out on top.
