Celebrating the elements with Latta Vino

Rustic and raw, the elements inspire us… Join us for an evening celebrating fire, air, water, and earth.

To inform his specially crafted three course menu Chef Michael Demagistris, is driven by the four elements. Labouring over the open fire with specialty wood, to cook and smoke, sourcing the finest produce from pure waters, rich soils and pristine environments. The menu will reflect the land and journey to plate.

Alongside the rich theme of elemental forces, we are pleased to welcome a dynamic guest winemaker, Owen Latta of Latta Vino, to bring this event to life. Winemaker Sam Coverdale, a keen supporter of Latta –is excited to share Owen’s rustic wines, with a philosophy akin to his own Polperro and Even Keel labels.

⁠⁠Owen Latta created his first vintage with encouragement of his father at their family vineyard at the age of 15 – it’s almost unbelievable that at 34, he’s already been making wine for 19 years!  The Latta Vino wines are experimental, the fruit is all sustainably grown, and the wine is made with no additions.

⁠⁠This year, Owen was named Gourmet Traveller Wine’s Young Winemaker of the Year - labelled as "one of Australia’s most thoughtful and daring winemakers.”

This is a wine dinner not to be missed. In the Polperro dining room for one night only.

Friday, July 26
7pm arrival for a 7:30pm start
3 courses & 7 wines from Latta Vino & Polperro - $135 per person

Polperro Winery on MasterChef

Polperro was fortunate enough to play host to MasterChef Australia for a Mornington Peninsula masterclass with celebrity chef, Heston Blumenthal. 

Our 25 acre property was the star of the show on Channel 10, Thursday the 22nd of June 2017 . The episode featured the three judges we know and love,  Gary Mehigan  Matt Preston and George Calombaris cooking alongside Heston Blumenthal. 

We are so proud that the Masterchef crew chose us and Red Hill as their location for the final roadshow Masterclass destination. ⠀⠀

The Master Chef team came to visit months ago and fell in love with the Polperro brand, the stunning property and our gorgeous staff. We had an incredible day working with the extensive crew from sunrise to late in the evening. It was yet another awesome experience in this crazy journey we are on seeing all that goes into a number 1 national rating production like this.
