Mornington Peninsula Wine Tour – Birthday Celebrations

Private Wine Tour

Saturday, 29th April 2017

This group decided to help celbrate their friends birthday by going on a wine tour of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. We started the day with a drive up Arthurs Seat, stopping at Murray’s lookout to take in the amazing views of Port Phillip Bay, the skies had cleared for us just in time.

From there we headed into Red Hill to begin the wine tasting journey.  We then ventured into Balnarring for a second wine tasting and a gourmet lunch to help refuel.

After lunch we headed off to another winery nearby and then drove on to Main Ridge for an amazing cheese tasting and visit to see the local goats.

Some of the beautiful wineries visited were:

Polperro winery in Red Hill South for an intimate cellar door visit and wine tasting.

Barn & Co for wine tasting and gourmet lunch

Rare Hare (The new Home of Willow Creek Wines) for a barrel room tasting – hosted by David Reyne.

Main Ridge Dairy for a visit to see the goats and to try the amazing seledction of goats cheese.

“Had the most amazing and memorable day celebrating a surprise Birthday, Ric was absolutely amazing with everything from the choice in wineries and lunch spot to being most accomodating, knowledgable and a great guide. Would highly recommend for a great day! Thank you” – Allie M

We had a truly fantastic winery tour with Ric as our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about not only the wineries but great spots to visit in the region. The wineries he chose for us to visit were beautiful with a great range of wines for us to taste. We had an abundance of delicious food for lunch and it was relaxing experience. Ric’s van was very luxurious with leather recliner seats, timber floors and a great sound system. I’m looking forward to doing another winery tour with Elevate wines in the near future.” – Laura H
