Private wine tours that take you way beyond your average cellar-door crawl for adventures with a well-connected local. Your host, Arthur O'Bryan has 18-years’ experience working for wineries and writing stories about the local food and wine scene. He has access to private vineyards where you will join in tastings and discover the best flavours and scenery of this stunning region. Tour highlights include:

A morning feast of premium sparkling wine paired with Main Ridge and Red Hill cheeses, local olives, bread, and other delicacies enjoyed in a private beach-side location.

A behind-the-scenes, one-on-one tasting with a celebrated winemaker including Arthur's wife, Geraldine McFaul; the highly-regarded winemaker at Willow Creek Vineyard and maker of Elgee Park, and Baillieu Vineyard wines.

Lunch at one of the region's finest restaurants. Over summer, you can gather fresh mussels from Harry's boat at Flinders Pier to be later cooked and served with local wines.
