Your Private Wine Tour & Tasting Experience

Join us on a private, customized, small group tour of the wine regions near Melbourne! Your experienced tour host creates an itinerary personalised to you. While we specialise in smaller boutique wineries, we know the mainstream ones just as well. Every Melbourne winery tour includes transport, wine tastings, and lunch.

On the day of your tour, we pick up your small group of up to five people anywhere in the Melbourne area in our luxury car, or we meet you in the wine region. Your itinerary remains flexible. If you find a place you love, we can stay there for as long as you like! If you decide you’d like to stop at a bakery or chocolaterie, we’re happy to oblige.
