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

An easy day trip from Melbourne, Mornington Peninsula offers an abundance of local flavor and beachside charm. After morning pickup at your Melbourne hotel, relax in an air-conditioned minicoach and take advantage of onboard coffee throughout the day. Stop at Arthur’s Seat for expansive views of Port Phillip Bay and Victoria’s dramatic coastline.

Pop in at the charming Main Ridge Dairy to sample a variety of creamy goat cheeses and say hello to the resident herd of goats that provide the milk. Continue on to Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm to indulge in an array of fruit-flavored treats, including strawberry wine and liquor, chocolate-dipped strawberries and juicy, fresh-picked berries during harvest season. 

Next, visit the cellar door of T'Gallant Winery to taste cool-climate varietals like chardonnay and pinot noir. Admire the beautiful scenery of rolling hills as you learn about the winemaking process. 

After you’ve worked up an appetite, it’s time for lunch! During the summer season, enjoy a gourmet picnic on the shore with leisure time for a swim or a game of beach cricket. During cooler weather, get cozy in one of the charming cafés in the seaside town of Flinders.

Save room for more wine, as you’ll next head to Red Hill Estate Winery, which features regional varietals and glorious ocean views. Finally, toast your tour with a glass of sparkling wine and cheese pairings at the award-winning Stonier Vineyard. After your delicious day, relax on the return drive to Melbourne, where you’ll be dropped off back at your hotel.

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.

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.
