Large Group Wine Tours
Size doesn't matter in Heathcote

Rounding-up more than just a few friends for that special day out? Let Wine Compass show you a new region and head north with a wine tour to Heathcote.

Plenty of room on the bus

***We are NOW OPEN for private tours, public tours expected in 2021***

Heathcote is only 1.5hrs from Melbourne CBD and hands down has some of the best wine in Australia. A Wine Compass tour allows you to experience the region like a local, with plenty of good times and lots of laughs along the way and guess what, Heathcote has room for everyone.

We take the hassle out of organising and transporting large groups of friends or co-workers, ensuring you get to sit back and enjoy your day to the fullest. Offering tours for groups of up to 56 people to a bus, and up to 3 buses per group (that’s 168 for those struggling with the math); so that’s a lot of people. We even provide a knowledgeable and fun host to accompany guests on each bus to ensure the day runs smoothly and every guests gets the most out of their day.

With years of experience running tours around Victoria, we have the insight and know-how to create a day your group will remember for years to come.

Designed with your group in mind
After a quick phone call, we’ll be able to customise an itinerary that suits you and your crew perfectly. We have so many great stops on our radar that we are spoilt for choice but will help in creating the perfect fit for you.
Wine, dine and have a good time
Heathcote has been made famous by their standout Shiraz but this region really has far more than this to offer. With an expert Wine Compass host at the helm, you’ll be guided to the best stops to discover the region.
Plenty of fun to be had!
At Wine Compass, we pride ourselves on creating a fun and relaxed environment for our guests to enjoy. The day is planned out so that there’s plenty of time to socialise; a truly fun way to spend a day.

Heathcote Wineries

Heathcote is much warmer than Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley and located to the north of the Great Dividing Range. The Heathcote region is at elevations between 160m and 380m and the majority of soil under vine is Cambrian – red and deep with excellent water retention.

It primarily produces top Shiraz however there is plenty more on offer across both white and red wines with a great deal of European influence. Some other varieties include Viognier, Riesling, Sangiovese and many others.

As well as wine, Heathcote has some fantastic other produce on offer that Wine Compass can take you to explore, including:
– Brewery
– Distillery
– Pork produce farm & cafe

“Birthday wine tour”

Organised a Mornington Peninsula wine tour for my 30th, Wine Compass was so easy to deal with and helped me tailor the day to what I wanted. Jarrod was a great host and very knowledgeable. Would definitely use Wine Compass again!

“Fantastic day out”

We did a tour with 21people for a couple of birthdays and had the best girls day out. Jimmy the host was great, lunch was delicious and the wine just kept flowing! Highly recommended!

“Excellent day, a variety of wineries/Distilleries/Cider shed to meet the needs of the variety of our group”

Wine compass organised a friends birthday celebration. Jarrod was our driver, guide and wine guru. His guidance was very welcoming and knowledge of wine varieties was honest and excellent. I would recommend this company and driver/guide to all. Thank you for a wonderful day. We all had a very informative, fun, and memorable day!

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,
