Wine tastings - Morington Peninsula Cheese, Chocolate and Wine Tasting Day Trip from Melbourne

Your Mornington Peninsula food and wine road trip begins with pickup from your city hotel. Then relax on the scenic journey around Port Phillip Bay, down to the Mornington Peninsula, one of Melbourne's favorite seaside holiday destinations.

The first stop is the peninsula's highest point, Arthurs Seat, for fabulous views over Port Phillip Bay, all the way to Melbourne and along the coast to Portsea.

Your food tour continues along Arthurs Seat's winding back roads to Main Ridge Dairy. Taste a range of delicious goat's cheeses at this boutique dairy, and watch the delightful baby goats at play.

Next stop is Sunnyridge Strawberry Farm to sample the fruit in a variety of ways. Sip strawberry liqueurs and wines, pair strawberries with chocolate or pick your own punnet of fresh strawberries if it's fruit-picking season.

Then it’s time for some wine tasting at the boutique T'Gallant Winery, beautifully set on rolling hills in the middle of the peninsula. Sample chardonnay, pinot noir and other cool-climate wine varieties and receive tasting tips at this artisan-styled cellar door.

Depending on the season, lunch might be an alfresco picnic on the beach in summer, with ocean views and local gourmet delights. Relax on the sand, go for a swim or play a game of beach cricket. In winter or if the weather isn't warm and sunny, head to a local cafe in the quaint seaside village of Flinders for lunch indoors.

In the afternoon, visit Red Hill Estate Winery for more wine tasting and enjoy fabulous ocean views from the beautiful cellar door. Then finish your Mornington Peninsula food tour with sparkling wine at the award-winning vineyard Stonier, served with cheese and crackers.

Relax on the drive back to Melbourne, with serve-yourself coffee provided on-board throughout the day.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

The weather was rainy and miserable on the day we did this tour, but that didn't matter at all! We were either on the bus or in a winery or somewhere enjoying something delicious. Lee - the tour guide/host chap - was really nice and friendly, yet very professional and knowledgeable. We felt the tour is very well put together with a number of different things to enjoy, rather than just being a winery tour exclusively.

A great tour, plenty of food and wine, and a very informative tour guide.

What a great day ... but a long one. We were promptly picked up at the appointed time and the rest of the day proceeded really well. The cheese tasting was very tasty and we enjoyed the kids as well. The chocolate shop provided a beautifully presented and scrumptious lunch and their chocolate was soooo good. The strawberries at the farm were absolutely beautiful as well but the place was so crowded it was difficult to enjoy the place. We visited three wineries which were all different and interesting. Our enabler was very approachable and helpful and drove us safely.. All in all a very pleasant day on the peninsular.

An extremely enjoyable tour with a fantastic driver/ tour guide who made the day even more enjoyable. A great mix of interesting and enjoyable experiences. The one pity was that the last venue was so busy that they could not really cope properly with our booked wine tasting. However the overall day experience was not spoilt and given the small group size of the tour it was a great day and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
