Melbourne is a haven for the foodies amongst us, but there’s so much more culinary goodness to explore outside the CBD. The Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula are renowned around Australia (and the world) for producing fine wine, delicious food and top produce, and Wine Compass can help you discover the best of the best on offer.
Our foodie and wine lover tours are specially designed to give you a more boutique and behind the scenes look into the wineries, distilleries, breweries, chocolatiers, breweries, cheese makers, and more that Victoria has to offer. We have many options to make sure your itinerary is customised to your specific preferences, plus offer tours of either the Yarra Valley or Mornington Peninsula.

Options to whet your appetite

Visit boutique and larger wineries

Over hundreds of tours, Wine Compass has uncovered some of the more hidden treasures that the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula have to offer. While we can also focus on some of the larger, more famous estates, our insider knowledge allows us to offer more boutique stops that you might be able to discover on your own.

Gourmet Stops

Naturally, our foodie and wine lover tours are completely focussed on finding the most gourmet stops possible. Your tour includes a stop at a world-class restaurant for lunch, plus options for checking out wineries, chocolate and cheese makers, distilleries, breweries, and plenty more.

Masterclass & deluxe tasting

A popular option for our foodie and wine lover tours is our exclusive 90 minute wine masterclass. This is a fun and super informative session that focusses on how to taste wine like the pros, so you can get the most out of your favourite reds and whites (or at least have a great party trick when you’re hanging out with your friends).

Bookings & Tour Pricing

Because Wine Compass’ foodie and wine lover tours are customised to suit each specific group, we provide individual quotes for each booking. After having a quick, initial consultation with you, we’ll be able to create your custom itinerary and pricing schedule.

Recent tripadvisor feedback

“Highly recommended”

What a great way to spend the day, delicious wine, gorgeous views, amazing lunch and a fantastic host. Jarrod was fabulous, super knowledgeable on the vineyards and different wines – he discreetly sat back and listened to our feedback on the tastings and very quickly noticed our likes and dislikes and was able to advise the next vineyards which wines each person might like (he was spot on).
Could not recommend this tour more highly – thank you so much

“Outstanding Tour of Wine, Chocolate & Cheese!”

The team at Wine Compass including Adam, Gabi, and Jimmy were top notch! Professional service, a knowledgeable team, easy of booking, and most of all a fun filled and not to mention yummy day! We did a tour of the Mornington Peninsula which consisted of wine, cheese, and chocolate tasting plus a shared lunch! I must say I will definitely be arranging to attend this fantastic tour again! Thanks guys!

A fantastic experience...

Perfectly planned day out

Would absolutely recommend Adam had his company to anyone planning a wine tour in that area. Everything was easy going and perfectly planned out.


Beautiful wine tour

Adam sorted our family out with a great itinerary with one days notice, we visited some great wineries/ brewery and he had great knowledge of the wines in the area. Overall was a perfect day with some delicious wines and food!


Easy and relaxed

Thank you for organising such a wonderful day. It was super easy dealing with you. The bus ride was fun and the wineries you chose were really good. We had a ball not having to worry about a single thing and being taken from place to place. Very realxing. Would highly reccommend you to anyone.


Fabulous day

Thanks Adam for organising a great day for us. Most of the group hadn’t been to the Yarra Valley before so weren’t sure what to expect. You were attentive and made our day so easy – we didn’t have to think about a thing! I will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a wine tour!


Wine tour

Had a great time! We let Adam choose the cellar doors and lunch venue, we were offered alternatives but went with his choices with no regrets. Very professional and friendly. Flexibility with pick up points was also very handy. Highly recommended!!! Thank you Adam,
