About Us

The Directors of MP Experience, brother and sister team Max and Danielle, grew up on the Mornington Peninsula. Max owns the award winning and pioneering Max's Restaurant at Red Hill Estate and Danielle has years of experience in winery touring.

Together, they have unparalleled and extensive knowledge of the area, the culture and the people that make the Peninsula what it is today.

They want to share this knowledge with you on their private small group tours. Meet the winemakers, the growers and the artisan producers and have an experience you will be talking about for years to come.


Max's Mushroom Meander

Join us in the month of May for an autumnal saunter, identifying edible and not-so-edible varieties of mushroom. Learn to distinguish, pick and prepare Max's favourite fungi, then enjoy a two course mushroom inspired lunch and glass of wine in the warmth of the restaurant.
