Tour Details

When the mountains and vineyards are cloaked in mist, Mornington Peninsula becomes a fairy tale, a cozy setting you won’t find in wine country any other time of the year. It’s the best time to connect with friends and take it easy while visiting new wineries (and revisiting old favourites). The wine shops are uncrowded and winemakers often emerge from their cellars to pour wine and visit with their guests. Tasting rooms are cozier than usual with decorations and winter charm.

Complementing the laid-back pace and picturesque landscape of a wintery Mornington Peninsula, we’ve lined up a few favorite experiences to showcase the region’s diverse terroir and to educate the public about wine and wine tasting in an unpretentious environment.

  • This tour requires a minimum of 4 guests however we are happy to cater to smaller groups as well. Please get in touch with us for a custom quotation for smaller groups. 
  • Kindly send us an email to bookings@amitours.com.au if you wish to make a tentative booking.

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.

Will I be charged extra for exceeding the 8-hour limit of tour?

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.

  • Customer Review - Olivia Y.
    OLIVIA Y.We recently went on a tour with AJ the magnificent - He didn't introduce himself in this manner but he should, because he really is fantastic. His knowledge of the region and wines and fun charismatic nature just added to what was already an amazing experience! The wineries we went to were all exceptional, and when an unexpected power outage threatened to thwart our fun, AJ and the team at Ami Tours seamlessly made changes and arrangements the keep the adventure going. 10/10 would recommend. 10/10 would go again :)
  • Customer Review - Carol L.
    CAROL L.Ami tours were absolutely amazing!!! Our driver and host, AJ, was fantastic and very knowledgeable. We visited three beautiful winery’s throughout the Yarra Valley region, had a refreshing bath at the hot springs and a delicious lunch at Barmah Park. The dedication and quality service was brilliant and AJ really looked after the group until our final departure.
  • Customer Review - Kristen D.
    KRISTEN D.We have just returned from a wine tour in Yarra Valley. Our driver and guide AJ was friendly, open, helpful and fun. He went out of his way to make our day memorable. He made our day special. Thanks AJ. The wineries were small family run businesses, and lunch was both delicious and plentiful. This is the second tour we have been on with Ami Tours, and would unreservedly recommend this company.
