Fun, social and determined to explore our many great walks. Gaining in popularity our Walking Group has maintained their initiative and inspiration with weekly and differing walks scheduled for Friday mornings.
A great way for Members to socialize with other Members as well as a chance to see our unique Peninsula backyard as never before: informative, energizing and a thoroughly entertaining Group indeed!
Keep up to date on weekly walks via e-news.
Our walking group is taking a break over the winter months due to the chilly Melbourne weather and lots of our members escaping the cold to warmer climates on holiday. The group will resume in Spring.
Weekly on Wednesday evenings...and going so well numbers are full! A new intake of interested Members will be mid year, so just let us know if this brilliant game of strategy has got your curiosity.
Wednesday evening 10th May will be the last session held at the Club for the existing Mahjong Group. Through the winter months lessons will be conducted at the private residence of Rae Leach by appointment. Day and evening sessions will be available.
Social classes at the Club will resume in the summer months. Experienced players welcome.
Trofeo Estate Wine Appreciation Evening
Wednesday 24th May 2017
Ranelagh Club Members appreciate that we are truly lucky to be in Mount Eliza - the entry into our unique Mornington Peninsula - where the ever increasing range of fresh local produce, specialist breweries, boutique coffee roasters and talented local designers and artists who amaze and spoil us with their products and works, are on our doorstep.
So when the opportunity arose for us to host a Wine Appreciation evening showcasing the wines of Trofeo Estate in Dromana, one of an impressive array of vineyards down this way, paired with the delicious menu created specifically for this evening by our talented Chef Shane Smith, taste-buds were tingling in anticipation.
Lori Smith, Operations Manager at Trofeo Estate, informed us throughout the dinner of the intricacies of their range of wines being matched - Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, & Chardonnay to name a few - their specialist techniques and unique philosophies. We all agreed the wines were multi dimensional and complex yet beautifully balanced as well.
Gratitude to all the staff - front and back of house, admin, and to the Trofeo Estate team too! - as well as all Ranelagh Members and their guests who attended. Until the next Wine Appreciation Evening, here are some moments of the evening to savour!

Foxeys Wine Appreciation Evening
Wednesday 29th March 2017
What a way to finish off the month, a Wine Appreciation Evening with Foxeys Hangout!
Foxeys Hangout has received numerous Gold Medals and nine trophies, including Best Wine in Show from the Victorian Wine Show two years running. The Wines selected were superb, and the matching food simply delicious. Fantastic effort by Chef, Shane Smith, kitchen staff, waiting staff and of course Michael Lee from Foxeys Hangout for his expertise.
Thanks also to all Members and their guests who turned up and thoroughly enjoyed the cooler March event too.
