Red Hill and Main Ridge

You'll be surprised at how this compact micro region sustains such sumptuous vineyards, restaurants, food stores, artisan producers and orchards.

Hedonistic hinterland
Criss-cross the hillsides laced with vines and olive groves to meet local food producers and experience farm-to-table dining. Enjoy a cheese platter at Red Hill Cheeses, a cheeky drop at Red Hill Brewery and intriguing wine bread at Red Hill Bakery. Meet the goats that make the milk that makes the cheese at Main Ridge Dairy.

Hop between conveniently close and welcoming cellar doors to compare pinot noir, pinot gris and chardonnay. Take the shuttle service or a personalised wine tour instead of driving.

Star-studded dining
Taste the wonders worked by masters with the luscious local produce at restaurants that are garnering wide acclaim. Indulge in degustations and share plates of garden harvests with friends at La Petanque, Montalto, Port Phillip Estate, Ten Minutes by Tractor and The Long Table, all of which have hats in the esteemed The Age Good Food Guide 2012.

Pick a winner
Fill a bucket with strawberries at Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm, or pluck cherries at roadside farms. Take home treats from MP Gourmet members in the Red Hill village centre.

Select a handmade memento of your stay in this creative core from the pioneering Red Hill Community Market (monthly) or from a small gallery or workshop offering coloured glass art, sculpture and paintings.
