Your in-depth guide into the Mornington Peninsula
If you want to go beyond the surface-level, somewhat-whirlwind wine tasting tours that are the norm, than this will definitely speak to you. Wine Compass has created something special for our advanced wine lovers, focussing on delivering a truly informative and comprehensive tour that goes beyond what you’d find on a regular tour.
The Mornington Peninsula’s finest wineries become your personal playground, with the assistance of your experienced host, who is an experienced wine industry professional. They will navigate you through the day while imparting her wisdom unto you, as well as introducing you to award-winning winemakers who will further your education.
Example Day Out
Wine Compass’ Premium wine tours are perfect for wine lovers and collectors, sommeliers and wine students. Even if your exposure to wine tasting is minimal, this will take you to the next level. Here are some examples of the premium, behind-the-scenes style features you can expect on your tour with us.
Example stop: Barrel tasting
Do you think you could taste the differences between a wine straight from the barrel, and one that’s been fully matured and bottled? A barrel tasting is a great way to find out, and also a great first stop option on your Premium tour of the Mornington Peninsula.
Example stop: tasting and tour in the vines
We’ll take the opportunity to not only tour the cellar door, but also the actual vineyard. This is something that not many regular wine tours do, and provides a great close-hand look at the initial winemaking process.
Example stop: Private tasting
Stop by another premium winery, where you’ll be able to taste more spectacular wines with a highly engaging and personal experience.
Example stop: Gourmet lunch
What better time to stop for a bite to eat? Wine Compass’ fully flexible tours allow for you to choose the best kind of gourmet lunch according to your group, whether that’s a casual picnic or a 3-course meal.
We have many other types of stops available too including:
- Cider makers
- Chocolate makers
- Dairies for cheese
- And more
