Firstly, we head west out of Melbourne towards Geelong, Australia’s largest regional city just an hours drive from Melbourne. After stopping by its beautiful waterfront we find ourselves on the Bellarine Peninsula, an area that is becoming known as a true food and wine destination. Often overshadowed by the more well known Mornington Peninsula, the Bellarine has for a long time now been producing magnificent wines. We make a stop at our first winery for the day, Terrindah Estate, with sweeping views of the bay and an included wine tasting, a great start to the day.
Next stop on your food and wine tour is historical Queenscliff, a beautiful, historical costal town with many Victorian-era buildings.
Here we stop at the beautiful Queenscliff Brewhouse where you get a choice of sampling either local wines, locally brewed craft beer or locally brewed cider, the choice is yours.
A short break follows where you can stroll the beautiful main street of Queenscliff of indulge in another tasting if you wish (at own expense)
Then onto a delicious freshly prepared lunch. You will have the option of several different menu options that have been specially put together for this tour. Every dish on the menu showcases the best of locally sourced, seasonal produce, a true taste of the Bellarine.
Here you also have the opportunity to purchase a wide variety of local produce to take home – from handcrafted chocolates, to cordials, sauces, beers, pickles, honey and wine.
After lunch we take a leisurely ferry ride of 40 minutes across Port Phillip Bay to Sorrento and the famous Mornington Peninsula. A scenic journey, occasionally accompanied by seals and dolphins alongside the boat. Keep your eyes open!!
From Sorrento we drive along the edge of the beach, up to the highest point of the Peninsula to Arthurs Seat. Here we will stop for sweeping panoramic views across the bay. On a clear day, Melbourne can be seen from up here, directly north over the water. Here we are in the heart of the peninsula, known for its fine agriculture. Green rolling hills, vineyards, orchards and vegetable crops all sandwiched between the wild waters of Bass Strait and the Bay.
We then make our way to Main Ridge Dairy, a locally run goat farm and dairy. Here you will sample a fine selection of award winning local artisan cheeses all produced on the farm.
Then onto your final winery on your food and wine tour, Red Hill Estate. One of the Mornington Peninsulas finest wineries with sweeping views nestles in the rolling hills of the peninsula.
From here we make our way up the eastern shores of the bay stopping at the historic and colourful bathing boxes at Mount Martha Beach before making our way back to Melbourne, arriving between 6 and 6.30pm where we will drop you back at your accommodation in the City, Docklands or Southbank.
