11.00 A.M:Gourmet Lunch & Wine Tastings at Red Hill Estate

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.

02:00 P.M:Wine Tastings at Pier 10

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.

03:00 P.M:Wine Tastings at Stumpy Gully

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.

04:00 P.M:Optional visit to Jimmy Rum Gin Distillery, Jetty Road Brewery or Mornington Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery

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.

Disclaimer: Please note that expenses incurred at this venue, including but not limited to food, tastings, beverages, and activities, are at the expense of the guests and are not as a part of the tour inclusions.

  • Customer Review - Alana C.
    ALANA C.Ami Tours was already a huge highlight of my summer! Sam was amazing with organizing, catering to my party's needs, and being an incredible host. The vineyards were great options with awesome wine tasting that was complimentary to the trip, as well as a few food options. It's a full day trip, but definitely worth it! Highly highly recommend this experience!
  • Customer Review - Kristi C.
    KRISTI C.We had the BEST time on our tour with Ami Tours! Booked this with a group of 20 ladies for a hens party and it was truly above and beyond our expectations. The Ami Tours team handled everything from start to finish, made it extremely easy to book, and answered all of our questions quickly. The bus was brand new and our driver was incredible. We visited 3 different vineyards and had a blast at both!! Can’t wait to do this again next year. Highly recommend!
