Echuca-Moama launches new food and wine trail

Echuca-Moama is best known by tourists for its paddle-steamers and scenic river location, however this is about to change with the recent launch of the new Echuca Food and Wine trail.

Featuring over 40 operators, the Echuca-Moama Food and Wine trail will harness the riches of the area’s local produce and wine and includes restaurants, cellar doors, wine tour operators and more.

Available from visitor information centres in the area, the trail features two maps - one dedicated to wine, and one to food.

On the wine map, visitors can find all the wineries in Echuca-Moama and surrounding areas including the historic Cape Horn vineyard, originally established in the 1860s to serve the thriving riverboat trade and Monichino Wines, which was opened by one of the first Italian immigrants in the Yarrawonga-Mulwala area and is famous for its barbera and sangiovese.

The food map highlights over 30 diverse eateries from the award-winning Oscar W’s Wharfside to on-the-water dining aboard the paddlesteamers Emmy-Lou and MV. Maryann, quirky pub fare at The Shamrock to Morrison’s Riverview Winery and Restaurant, famous for its picturesque riverside position.
