Our 1st stop is a combination of wine tastings at Red Hill Estate as well as a gourmet lunch served at Max’s Restaurant, Mornington Peninsula’s first winery restaurant.
Wine Tastings at Red Hill Estate
Red Hill Estate wines are truly exceptional, with grapes sourced from Cool Climate wine regions where different cool climates mix with volcanic and sedimentary soils to create wines that are wonderfully textured, complex and elegantly understated.
Gourmet Lunch at Max’s Restaurant
A destination dining experience, Max’s Restaurant is the perfect location for a relaxed lunch, romantic meal or group celebration.
Set in beautiful Red Hill with spectacular views of the vineyard, Westernport Bay and Phillip Island, max’s seasonal menu celebrates local produce and modern techniques, while the dining room has a relaxed ambiance with professional and friendly service. Glass walls on three sides maximize the vineyard and coastal views.
Enjoy a gourmet lunch on the expansive lawns during summer or cosy up by the fireplace in winter at this legendary winery restaurant.
Our 2nd stop is Pier 10, a relatively small and family-run vineyard known for a nice selection of wines, including Mornington Peninsula staples Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. What they’re really famous for, however, is their sparkling. Red, white, and rose sparkling varieties are all a part of their catalogue, each of which brings the kind of fun and fruity profile beloved bubbly is known for.
Best known for sauvignon blanc at the start, Stumpy Gully has since diversified its wines as peoples’ tastes have expanded over the years. Sauvignon blanc gave way to pinot grigio in popularity, and today the two best-selling wines are both pinot noirs. Thanks to the peninsula’s maritime climate, starkly different wines can thrive quite close together.
Enjoy those wines in a tasting at the cellar door, or make it a more leisurely affair at the on-site restaurant.
For our 4th stop, you can choose between a visit to the Local Gin Distillery, Brewery, or Chocolaterie.
Treat yourself to a true Australian Craft Gin or a fresh brew of craft beer & cider at Jimmy Rum Gin Distillery & Jetty Road Brewery.
Had enough to drink for one day? Feel free to indulge your sweet tooth in a freshly made batch of artisanal chocolates, pastries & desserts at the Mornington Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery before heading back home.

A full-day wine tour booking includes 8 hours; this includes the time from the first pickup to the final drop-off. However, there are exceptions to this in case of extreme weather conditions, traffic incidents, etc.
Example of a standard tour: Tour begins at 10 am from pick up point in Melbourne CBD, driver & passengers arrive at Yarra Valley at 11 am, return to Melbourne CBD to finish the tour at 6.00pm.
If multiple pickup pickups/drop-offs are required, then it is recommended to plan your day ahead to avoid exceeding the 8-hour tour duration.
Not strictly, we may allow up to an extra 30 minutes as no one is perfect, and going overtime can happen. However, if an 8-hour tour ends up being a 9- or 10-hour tour then you will be charged overtime.
It is important to note that the driver is booked for 8 hours and longer hours of driving result in fatigue which is not ideal for the safety of the driver and passengers on board.
