Bellarine Taste Trail

Bellarine Taste Trail

Bellarine Taste Trail

The Bellarine region is home to a diverse range of food and wine producers and growers . Farm to table, as well as Ocean to your table – a great activity year round is to explore the regions freshest produce. It’s a great experience visiting the origins of where your food has come from. From Blueberry picking, to purchasing cheese from where the goats produce it, the scent of ripe grapes ready for picking and sampling the diverse range of wine . Hop in the car and follow your nose for delicious wine, organic produce and the freshest seafood.

A great resource is a website called The Bellarine Taste Trail. I highly recommend downloading the Bellarine Taste Trail map here

Its beautifully descriptive and very easy to follow.
