Mornington Peninsula is a special place just under an hour, South East of Melbourne
Vineyards were first planted in the 1970’s with the region providing perfect growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, today the maritime region on the Mornington Peninsula boasts over 200 small scale vineyards and over 50 cellar doors.
The Mornington Peninsula is a popular weekend getaway and a favourite destination for locals attracted to the abundance of local fruit and vegetable producers, and the high quality restaurants, bistros, cafes.
We have selected the very best dining experience for you to stop for lunch and 3 exceptional wine tasting events (includes one at your lunch venue) You will also enjoy the stunning scenery that this region is famous for, studded with golf courses, horse studs, cherry tress, strawberry fields, beaches and wineries with well manicured gardens and world class sculpture displays.
We focus on local and seasonal produce and family owned wineries and winery restaurants. We believe that this presents you with the most authentic experience that includes unique and exclusive wine tasting events. The day is planned to be well paced and relaxed so there is no rushing to get to the next stop.
Group sizes are small (speak with us about a private tour upgrade for 2 guests) so we can introduce you to private and intimate experiences away from crowds. All wine tasting events are booked in advance so we are expected. We ensure that we have the best seats in the house at winery restaurants.
