Franklin Food Tours

The best way to get to know a region is through it's food and wine - this is certainly true of  Franklin, famous for our artisan food and wine producers.

Our very own market gardeners, with their produce, have featured on "Foodie" shows on television and we are able to use our knowledgeable and experienced local operators to showcase our passionate, award winning artisans.

A food and wine adventure can take you along some of our spectacular coastal roads. past our crop filled fields and pastureland and through some of our native bush-clad hills. You are able to meet our artisans and sample the culinary delights of Franklin - cheeses, olive oils, culinary lavender and essential oil, alpaca salami, vegetables, nuts, fruits, small batch smoked fish, honey and of course, our stunning wines!

So come to Franklin to experience your own "foodie" self drive and see what we have on show.
