Red Therapy | Private Mornington Peninsula Wine Tours
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 tour guide 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 18-24 wine tastings at 3 different wineries, a gourmet lunch, a special visit to the local distillery, brewery or chocolaterie, and private transport to all wineries.
