We first arrived to the visitor centre in Dromana, where we got a good understanding of how the wine tourism sector is organised and offered in the region. While we travelled across the Red Hill, the students received information from Tour Guiding student Jeronimo about the Aboriginal Boonwurrung people the first peoples of the area. Their first contact with Lt. Murray and his crew in 1802, the first European settlement at Sullivan Bay, and the wine history of the area. We visited Red Hill cheese where we enjoyed an amazing taste of goat, cow and sheep cheeses. At lunch we had a wonderful range of local produce of tasting plates with a choice of Chardonnay and Pinot noir at Foxey’s Hangout winery hosted by ex- student and owner Chef ,Winemaker Tony Lee. We finished the day with two more wine tastings at Montalto and the very modern Port Philip Estate.
