Come down to the open amateur winemaking competition organised by Frankston Amateur Winemakers Guild showcasing home-made wines from fruit, vegetables, flowers, herbs and red/white grape wines. Competition categories to be judged include still, sparkling, fortified wines and liqueurs.

Tasting the many wines available, you may meet the winemakers and learn the techniques required to make your own wine. Winemaking information is available and applications for new members are most welcome.

Sample wines made from citrus fruits, stone fruits, berries, guavas, carrots, parsnips, herbs and many other exotic ingredients. Red and white wines such as shiraz, cabernet, merlot, pinot noir, riesling, chardonnay and muscat are usually well represented.

The guild meets once a month, in Mt. Martha at The Briars Historic Property, to exchange winemaking tips and techniques; to taste and assess member's wines and to generally promote home winemaking. Social events such as wine tasting tours and winemaking supplier's visits are organised throughout the year.

The Briars Park has many other activities. These include picnic facilities, the visitor information centre, easy wildlife bushwalks, bird hide viewing areas, and historic 1840's homestead with Napoleonic memorabilia, Josephine's Restaurant and historic farm implement display.

Located on the Mornington Peninsula, the venue is close to the peninsula's beaches, tourist attractions and country side. Commercial wineries are close at hand along with many fine foods and produce outlets.

Why not have the whole day out on the peninsula, starting with the wine tasting and wine show.
