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.

Barrel tasting

Example stop: Barrel tasting

Compare a ‘work in progress’ with the finished product through a barrel tasting and winery tour. Here you’ll get to try wine straight from the barrel, and later sample the bottled beauty to see the differences a bit of time and final processing can have.

Polperro winery

Example stop: tasting and tour in the vines

Depending on the weather, a tour and tasting amongst the vines is a perfect opportunity to learn more about the planting and harvesting process that goes into achieving that perfect yield.

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

After whetting your palate, a lunch stop is on the cards. Wine Compass offers many gourmet options through our Premium Wine Tours, from more casual but scenic picnics through to 3 course formal dining.

Other options

We have many other types of stops available too including:

  • Distilleries
  • Cider makers
  • Breweries
  • Chocolate makers
  • Dairies for cheese
  • And more

Why Mornington Peninsula or Yarra Valley?

Check out our Mornington Peninsula Premium Tours and Yarra Valley Premium Tours

Victoria is home to two world-class wine regions with remarkably high production and quality overall. The Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley are both cool climate regions, and as such are renowned for offering top Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As well as that, the Peninsula region pioneered Pinot Gris/Grigio in Australia, and is notable for producing outstanding cool-climate Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Sangiovese, Friulano, Muscat, and many other dessert wines.

The Yarra Valley particularly shines with a number of white varieties, too, including Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, as well as a slightly warmer climate for Shiraz and Cabernet. Both regions produce outstanding sparkling wine made from traditional blends.

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

“Fantastic day out!”

A HUGE thank you to the team at Wine Compass who made our anniversary special. Adam and Gabi were a pleasure to book with and gave us plenty of choices for stops. On the day we had Jarrod as our host and he was incredible. He had great knowledge of wine and an obvious passion for his job. He kept us on track whilst giving us space throughout the day.

“Look no further”
A great day out with fantastic fun hosts. We were visiting our daughter, and she booked this trip as a late christmas present. A punctual pick up, and then off to some exellent wineries. At no time were we hurried, and our hosts were happy to share their knowledge of wine with us. Fantastic long lunch in a great setting. No hesitation in recommending this trip to others.

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,
