The cool climates just south of Melbourne make this region a darling for Pinot Noirs. Beautiful perfumes and nice red fruits come alive in the glass thanks to the region’s red volcanic soils. Mornington is also well renowned for its Chardonnay and Pinot Gris varietals. Take a wine tour of this region to learn what makes these profiles unique from their old-world counterparts. The wine tasting experience is paired with a delectable dinner on a farm and winery. Everything you sample comes directly from the property and neighbouring farms. More than a wine tour, a Mornington Peninsula winery visit educates you on a rich ecosystem where everything is connected.
In Yarra Valley, you’ll travel to three different wineries with an intimate group. Many consider Yara the Chardonnay capital of Australia and on this sun-kissed wine tour, you’ll quickly realise why.
