Tour Details

A perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or simply to treat yourself to a relaxing day with friends, our “Red Therapy” Wine Tour across Mornington Peninsular and Red Hill leisurely explores the region’s beautiful landscapes and world-class wineries.

Renowned for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as pioneering Pinot Gris/Grigio in Australia, the Mornington Peninsula produces a vast range of quality wines. Set between two bays – Port Phillip Bay and Western Port Bay – this cool climate region is dominated by strong winds that sweep across the land. With red volcanic soils and hills rising 300 meters above sea level, the area produces grapes with outstanding fruit flavors, high natural acidity, and fine tannins, resulting in excellent vintages.

This summer calls for the perfect opportunity to spoil yourself with some of the Peninsulas’ beautiful Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and of course, the region’s jewel, Pinot Noir.

If you have already explored the wineries in the Yarra Valley region – then this region is a MUST visit! We suggest having a light breakfast as you will love the mouth-watering lunch menu that is on offer for this tour package 🤤

With a fully licensed and CPVV accredited driver at your side, our aim is to provide you with a memorable experience exploring the best wines that Mornington Peninsula has to offer at an affordable price. This 8-hour private tour package price per person includes tastings at 3 different wineries, a gourmet lunch, a special visit to the local distillery, brewery or chocolaterie, and private transport to all wineries including a complimentary pick-up and drop-off service from a location of your choice within Melbourne CBD.

  • This tour requires a minimum of 8 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.

    HANNAH L.One of the best wine tours in Mornington Peninsular!!

    My second time going through Ami Tours and I’d recommend it 1000 times over!! The wineries were beautiful and well picked, the food was incredible and the bus ride and host Sam were top standard! Made me feel super special for my birthday which was the cherry on top!
  • Customer Review - Joey
    JOEY W.Amazing day out in Red Hill! Our tour guide AJ was super friendly and extremely knowledgable of the area. Everyone at the wineries was nice and the entire experience was fabulous.

    Lunch at the winery was included in the price and we had the option to visit the Jimmy Rum distillery after! 10/10
  • Customer Review - Diane C.
    DIANE C.Had the most amazing wine tour with Ami Tours a few weeks ago! We enjoyed a great mix of well known and hidden gem wineries on the Mornington Peninsula. And the lunch at Max's restaurant was excellent value. In fact, the whole tour was excellent value - from the quality of the bus, to the number of wineries, the tastings and the inclusions. Plus, AJ was very knowledgeable without being boring, took soooo many photos at the request of one very Insta demanding friend with a smile and really added to the vibe in general. Couldn't recommend more highly, will book again for the Yarra Valley.
