Gourmet Gippsland Mid-Week Escape
Exclusive dining experience with Trevor Perkins of Hogget Kitchen & wine maker William Downie
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and let us take you on a food and wine experience like no other to the rolling green hills of Gippsland.
Set amongst the vineyards of West Gippsland only a 1½ hrs from Melbourne, we are guests of talented chef Trevor Perkins of Hogget Kitchen. The restaurant has recently been recognised again with a Chef Hat in the 2021 Good Food Guide Awards.
Normally closed to the public on Wednesdays, travellers with Vita Food & Wine Tours will have exclusive access to this picturesque restaurant. Chef Trevor will take us on an unforgettable 3-Course journey of local Gippsland produce along with a cooking demonstration. We will also be guided by the commentary and exceptional wines of one of the best young winemakers in the country, William Downie.
A unique private dining experience with one of Victoria’s most talented chefs and indeed one of the country’s best young winemakers.
Get some friends together or come and meet new ones with your tour leaders and hosts Mario & Gianni, on an intimate small group day-tour with travellers who love food & wine and great company.
“Wonderful day with our guide Gianni touring Gippsland and visiting three great wineries. Interesting talks on wine making, an exceptional lunch at Hoggets. Would recommend as a great introduction to the area.” J Corrigan (VIC)
