My partner and I took our family away to Red Hill for the weekend. We booked Adam from Wine Compass on the Saturday, we all had such a lovely day together.
Adam was a great host and his service prior to the day was fantastic. He found out the ages of those attending and made a special day for those that weren’t (yet big) wine drinkers! We will be booking in another day out soon – Casey – Prahran

Definitely the best winery tour we’ve been on in the Peninsula! Loved that we could customise the tour and go to boutique wineries, as well as other places of interest.
Thanks for such a great day Adam! – Gitika – CBD

Thank you to Both Adam and Sarah for organising and facilitating a fun filled day.
We were in Sorrento for a girls weekend away and our personalised wine tour was a definite highlight. The suggestions and recommendations from Adam were spot on and Sarah’s relaxed approach was refreshing. I would without hesitation highly recommend Wine Compass for a private event of your favourite wine region. – Cherie – Yarraville

I recently went on a wine tour run by Adam out to the Yarra Valley for my cousin’s hens party. It was such a great day, we visited 4 wineries which included a delicious lunch at Train Trak. I’ve been to a few wineries in the Yarra Valley before not to 3 of the 4 Adam took us to and they were so gorgeous, I would definitely go back. There was a good mix of tastings and the lady running Coombe’s was just delightful. Adam knew his stuff and was so easy going with our hens group and getting us moving from one winery to the next. I especially loved that he collected the vino each of us purchased & handed them to us and the end of the day so we didn’t need to worry about leaving them behind or who bought what. It was a fabulous day and I would Wine Compass to anyone! – Katie – Hawthorn

I planned my best friends hens day about 6 weeks in advance with Adam. I told him exactly what I wanted and he put together a fantastic itinerary that met my needs. The day panned out perfectly and even better than I had expected. Adam is easy going, making the tour planning a breeze! He is upfront and honest, what he says is what you get, there are no disappointments. We visited some beautiful wineries and ate a delicious lunch. All in all I was so pleased and so was the hens party! – Melinda – Knox

Went on a wine tour for a friends birthday. Had a great day. The wines were great. The hosts were great and overall I’d definitely recommend using this tour company in the future! thanks for a great time – Ellen – Reservoir

Adam and the crew from Wine Compass gave us a fantastic Hen’s day in the Yarra Valley for my sister-in-law. The whole day was amazing and everyone had a great time. Adam and Gabi organised everything for us and were very flexible with the plans. The wineries that we visited were just stunning and were really well suited to our group.

I would definitely recommend Wine Compass to anyone wanting a personalised winery tour. – Victoria – Bundoora

We went for our work xmas party & had such a fun, relaxing day. The wineries that we went to were perfect, the bus trip was fun & I would definitely go again! – Kirby – Melbourne

Thanks so much to Adam and Gabi for organising this fabulous winery tour. We had the lovely Heath as our guide and the day was just wonderful. The bus was extremely comfortable and we were stoked to play music through Spotify. The wineries that were chosen were brilliant. We wanted to avoid the huge wineries so ended up going to the more boutique wineries which suited us all perfectly. Lunch was terrific at the Red Hill Epicurean. The whole day had a really relaxed vibe and at no stage, did we feel rushed. Heath was the perfect guide, so friendly, knowledgable and helpful! I would highly recommend Wine Compass to anyone and will remember this day for a long time! – Narelle – Fitzroy

Great knowledge of the region with the really cool ability to go off script of the planned tour to get us to experience local happenings on the day. – Sean – Brisbane

Thanks to Adam for a great day of wine tasting and your knowledge of the region. Having done these small private tours on numerous occasions we knew what we wanted and Adam was happy to accommodate the tour to our tastes and introduced us to some great little wineries (favourites being Balnarring Vineyard and Bluestone Lane both smaller wineries but the Pinot’s were nice and the people at the cellar door were fantastic). Lunch was great at T’Gallant with more than enough to eat and all included in the price.

We had 4 kids on board and there were no issues travelling with kids around the wineries.

I highly recommend this tour and will be coming back to Mornington and using them when we visit the Yarra. – Anthony – Sydney

We decided that we wanted to get away from the city and spend our work end of year Christmas party doing something a little different. What a fabulous day! Adam was a great host and recommended some very good wineries. My favourite was actually a brewery (Napoleon). Amazing ciders and outdoor seating, which allowed us to take advantage of the spectacular day we had.

It was well planned out. We didn’t feel rushed at all. Was actually quite surprised at how fast the day had gone. Adam was very accommodating with our pick up/drop off needs, which we really appreciated.

Everyone had a great time. Highly recommend this experience to anyone. – Rina – Bundoora

Went on a very private tour in late December. Adam was a very personable guide and extremely knowledgeable of the Mornington Peninsula area. Went to some wineries we were not familiar with and they were excellent – even our non-wine drinkers were accommodated! Great day out in a beautiful spot. – Ryan – Reservoir

Thanks to Sara for taking us out and around to the wineries, it was an absolute blast. Will be more than happy to recommend the tour onto any friends/family/strangers/whatever lol would be more than happy to do it again, too! Thanks again! – Leanne – Moordialloc

Thanks to Sara for making our day fun and exciting! All places we visited were unique. I would defiantly book here again! – Matilda – Frankston

Thanks Adam for planning such a fun filled day for both my 26 guests and myself. Every single person enjoy themselves. Lots of laughs. Highly recommend anyone out there wanting to go on a wine tour to give Adam at Wine Compass a call. – Kelly – Pearcedale

We had such a fab day thanks to Adam for being so prompt and organised. Would recommend for other birthdays, hens, work functions and anything in between – Cass – Clyde North

As my first wine tour this was exceptional, I would go with Adam again any time. Highly Recommended. – Rhys – Langwarrin

I had a friend visiting from Sydney, so we organised a day of it and got a group of friends together for a ladies day out. Adam did a really great job of putting together a tailored itinerary for us (and dealing with all my demands) even including a trip to the hot springs!! Each and every one of the wineries we visited was amazing, and exactly what we were looking for. Adam was lots of fun to have around, very professional and even put up with our choice of music! 🙂 It was a really great day, and we’re planning to do it again some time soon. Thanks again Adam! – Tara – South Yarra

Had a great day out with Wine compass tours. Went for my sisters birthday, Sara was our host she did a amazing job and was great fun to be around, she fitted in perfect with all us girls on a girls day out! was our very first winery tour and Wine compass nailed it! would highly recommended them and use them again! thanks guys! – Brooke – Aspendale Gardens

Thankyou Wine Compass! I went on a winery tour for my friends birthday a couple of weekends ago. We had such a fun day & Sara (our host) was great! We were ahead of schedule and so Sara squeezed in an extra stop at Mock Cider to accommodate. Had such a fun day, would 100% book with Wine Compass again 🙂 – Eliza – Aspendale Gardens

Wine Compass was the bomb. Heath, our host, couldn’t do enough for us and was fabulous to deal with. The wineries and brewery we went to were all top class and the tastings informative and fun. A lot of time was spent reserching wine companies and I’m thrilled that we chose Adam and Wine Compass to help celebrate two birthdays. Easy to deal with, flexible and very professional. Highly recommend. Thanks Heath for being our superstar host with the most! – Laura – Brighton

Thanks Adam for organising the tour. I would highly recommed Wine Compass. Never been on a winery tour so i didn’t know what to expect, our host Sara was very welcoming and made the tour heaps of fun. It made my birthday! Would deffinelty do another wine tour with Wine compass again ! Our tour was down Mornington way, all the winery’s and cider places were great! Thinking of doing a tour down at YarraValley with Wine Compass, wouldn’t choose any other company but them! – Madz – Aspendale Gardens

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! – Danica – Northcote

We had the best time for my Daughters Hens Day. Adam was easy and lovely to deal with and chose all the best wineries as I left it in his hands. The host on the day Mason made the girls day !!!! He was polite and made sure everyone was always well attended to. Cant wait to organise the next tour. Thanks Adam
Tina – Tina – Croydon

What a fantastic, well organised day! Couldn’t fault the day.

Our host Heath was amazing and looked after us very well. The tour was intimate and personal. Each winery we visited for tastings, we found ourselves well looked after by each estate.

My only feedback is regarding the lunch at Rochford. As one dish was a little disappointing (a little under cooked). This was addressed straight away by Heath our tour guide and Rochford made sure we were accommodated for. All were happy with the outcome.

The choice of wineries and breweries at planning stage, was really important to me (as i was trying to accommodate for 30 people) and I had input into what would best suit my friends. Adam was easy to work with and had great ideas to help me.

I would recommend Wine Compass in a flash.

cheers – Paula – Thornbury

this was an amazing experience and adam made our day extra special. would highly recommend this to anyone. Kayla – Ballarat

Great tours Adam! Really flexible with friendly drivers and hosts 🙂 – Yulie – Prahran

Thanks so much for organising our ward day out on the Mornington Peninsula. We absolutely loved it and had the most wonderful day. So many happy times and it couldn’t have gone more smoothly! Will definitely be back! – Narelle – Fitzroy

Spent a weekend in Melbourne for business trip & was surprised to start the weekend with a Winery tour. Was a lovely day spent tasting wines, viewing the beautiful scenery & had a ball with listening to our host Adam for the day. Would definitely to it again. – Angela – Brisbane

Awesome day out exploring the Mornington Peninsula. – Simon – Brisbane

Fabulous day out. Thanks to our host Carlie. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day.  – Kerryn – Bendigo

Had an amazing day out at our staff Christmas party – would highly recommend this tour!! Amelia – Lilydale

Thanks Adam for introducing us to some great wineries we would never have thought of going to. We had a great hassle free day and having done a number of these private winery tours this was one of the best. I can not recommend you highly enough. Great food at T’Gallant was a highlight and the fantastic cellar door experience at Bluestone Lane.

Looking forward to booking again either Mornington or the Yarra. – Anthony – Sydney

Well organised, great choice of vineyards and overall a very fun day. – Melissa Shawyer – Cremorne

Thanks Adam and Michelle for such a fab winery tour for my best friend’s hens! It’s no easy feat keeping 31 ladies happy and entertained for a full day, but you managed to do this in style! Choice of wineries etc was fantastic! Cheers Gen 😉 – Gen – Prahran

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. – Kat – Northcote

We had an awful lot of fun, touring the Mornington Peninsula. Willow Creek wine tasting was quite classy, Bluestone Lane wine tasting was a lot of fun, Tucks Ridge wine tasting was laid back, and T Gallant wine tasting came with lunch and lots of sweeter wine options.

Our driver, “Fluffy”, was fantastic. Friendly, fun and make sure we enjoyed our day. Thanks so much for everything! – Caroline – Langwarrin

Thanks for such an amazing, fun and relaxed day. Can’t wait to explore other areas! – Katrina – Northcote

We had a great time with Adam who arranged a last minute day for us on the Mornington Peninsular. Couldn’t have been smoother or easier. Lunch at Polperro was superb and the tasting with Sam the winemaker was lots of fun and very relaxed. – Anne – McKinnon

We booked this wine tour for my hens. If you are after a day out with the girls that is fun, realxing and hassle free then this is the tour for you. Adam was great to work with, he is very knowledgeable and always returned my emails which always helps when you are putting something like this together. The day went without a hitch, we had a great hostess and driver who took us to 5 Wineries and the Cheese factory. We had lunch at T’Gallant winery which was a nice spread of woodfire pizza’s for everyone to share. I was under the impression that we would all have our own pizza’s, however this ended up not being a problem at all as there was plenty for everyone and you do not leave hungry. They were also able to accomodate the Vegetarian and Gluten Free diets so everyone was happy. This was our favourite winery who were basically the only winery that served sweet wines, moscato’s. Red Hill offered a dessert wine, but the Moscato’s from T’Gallant was our favourite. We would have bought more wines from T’Gallant if we had known what was on offer at the other wineries. Don’t get me wrong though, the other wineries still had some very good wines. We enjoyed all of them and there was always something to suit everyones taste buds. I can’t recommend this company enough, they allowed mel to have an amazing day out for my Hens with my friends and family. We all really enjoyed the day. Thank you Adam, our lovely Host and driver for making our day and experience such a good one. Oh and the Cheese Factory was amazing!!!!
Just a side note, the day after our winery tour we went to the mornington markets and found a T’Gallant stall selling one of the Moscato wines for $10 cheaper than the seller door price which i found very disapointing. When you are buying more than 1 or two bottles of wines at the winery seller door you should be getting the best price, not to go to a market to find the same wine $10 cheaper per bottle. Bit cheeky if you ask me.  – Sarah – Dandenong

Had an awesome day out with these guys! Beautiful scenery, great wine and a fabulous lunch. Very informative and friendly! Will definately use them again. Thanks! – Danielle – Ringwood

Mason was a sensational host and Baz was a great driver! Thanks for the great day. I highly recommend these guys to anybody!!! 🙂 – Sami – Prahran

Mason and Adam have caught onto an absolute ripping business! Would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a fab day out on the peninsula! Cheers boys! – Lauren – Prahran

What a great day at Getta Head’s hens weekend away. Lovely wineries… especially the last one… Astro was a fab guide too – Jenna – South Yarra

Fabulous day!!! Xxo – Claire – Melbourne

Had a great time. A little disappointed Mason wouldn’t take his shirt off, but otherwise a fantastic day!  – Amie – Melbourne

Thanks Adam for a fantastic trip last weekend. It is still being talked about. You kept us on track and chose some great places we didn’t know about! It was the best way to celebrate my 40th. Thank you again! Claire – Clyde North

Had a FANTASTIC hens day in March this year! Great wineries, great food, great atmosphere and best of all great eye candy tour guide MASON!!! 😉 THANK YOU HEAPS!!! Best day ever!!! – Alisha – Melbourne

Fantastic personal tour in a beautiful region of Melbourne, even in winter. Adam’s guidance was friendly and insightful. Simple to organise and flexible. Richard – UK & Sydney

We had an absolute blast and the trip was made even more enjoyable by the care the tour team took to organise all of the purchases! – Eloise – Kew

Thanks Adam for such a fantastic tour exploring some beautiful wineries in Mornington to celebrate Rachel’s Hens!! We all had a great day, but most importantly it is one Rachel will remember. You were awesome and we’ll definitely book you again for our next tour! – Erin – Hawthorn

Had an awesome day in Mornington Peninsula with the coolest hip tour guide Miss Laura Maguire! Miss Laura thank you for looking after us loonies on Sunday esp our karaoke-ing talents all day long. It was such an amazing day, we had sooo much fun!
Thank you Adam for organising our itinerary and we look forward to Miss Laura doing the next one for us in Bordeaux next year 🙂 – Recel – St Kilda

Thank you to Adam and Sara for making my 40th b’day a day to remember. Your knowledge, flexibility, and sense of humour (putting up with us!) was amazing. Highly recommend!! – Simone – Langwarrin

Thank you for the amazing tour Adam!

You guys really made the trip personable and fitting to all those that attended. The Yarra Valley trip was amazing and enjoyed by all, especially by my auntie & uncle from US!

You were a great host and our driver for the day was entertaining – giving us a great history lesson & a little tour on on the area.

Thanks again! – Tiffany – North Balwyn

Absolutely brilliant day exploring the wineries throughout the Mornington Peninsula Region! Thank you Adam for your professionalism, creativity and humour providing Our families and friends with a great fun day out…all the way from the UK! – Andrew – Melbourne

You were a great host and the wineries you suggested were fantastic – not only did we taste some great wines, the food was amazing.. And we travelled in style in the swish bus! Thank you again for a wonderful day!! – Richard – UK

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! Thanks – Helen – Mckinnon

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

Thanks Adam for organising a fabulous day and itinerary for our trip to the Yarra Valley on Sunday. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and are looking forward to planning another with you to the Mornington Peninsula next time. Your extensive knowledge of the area coupled with our request for a relaxed day lunching and wine tasting made for a thoroughly enjoyable day out. Thanks again. – Louise – Surrey Hills

We had a fun little winter wine tour with our guide Laura. There were 6 of us and Laura picked us up directly from our accommodation with her little mini bus. She brought us to 3 lovely Mornington wineries (including a lovely leisurely lunch) and drove us home afterwards. She was very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely book Wine Compass again. Cheers – Carla – Rye

Adam, the company founder, took our booking the day before and quickly arranged a tour itinerary for us. He picked us up on time, was friendly and informative in his approach and selected some stunning locations for our tastings. I would recommend to all and would go through the company again in a heart beat.  – Angus – NZ

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 – Spencer – Carrum Downs

6 lads, many wineries and a heap of fun! Adam planned the day perfectly and was punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and completely flexible throughout the course of the day.

Never felt like we were being guided around by a tour leader but rather just being shown around by a mate who knows a lot about the area. – Eugene – Preston

I organised my best friends hens day with Adam at Wine Compass. Right from the get go he went out of his way to make excellent suggestions and ideas to help make the day a success. The whole day was fantastic and we enjoyed all the wineries visited. The activities he organised were hilarious and really helped make the day for everyone. We did not stop laughing. I would highly recommend Adam and Wine compass to anyone wanting to explore this region!!  – Sophie – Portsea

No party is to big or small for this fantastic guide Adam. The day was beautifully organised by Adam. From start to finish there was nothing we had to worry about. I could sit back and enjoy the day with my guests. Will be using Adam and his team in future.The girls are still talking about the games he organised.  Sarah – St Kilda

Thanks Adam for organising a great itinerary. We had a wonderful day with our lovely guide Sara exploring the wineries of Mornington Peninsula.  Rachel – Clayton

Adam was fantastic in organizing exactly what we wanted to do. The day was a fantastic day spent with friends and Adam and Carlie’s knowledge of the wineries was spot on. Definitely will be organizing another one!  Ari – St Kilda

Adam was very helpful with organising our tour to fit our budget and group. We had an amazing your around the mornington peninsula red hill areas stopping by several charming cellar doors including a great lunch. Adam was very kind and knowledgeable which made the day a great success. – Richard – UK

Adam made it so easy for us 6 girls to build our own wine and pamper package from the get go.
We basically told him what we wanted from the day and he did the rest! Adam was super prompt to collect us from Melbourne and take us to the hot springs, happily waiting while we took our time to relax before some wine action. We then proceeded to visit a great selection of wineries which included a really great spot for lunch – the gourmet pies were to die for! Adam had a lot of knowledge of the different wineries, grape varieties and general info on the Mornington Peninsular which was helpful being a Sydney sider! He even didn’t mind us popping open a couple of our bottles of fizz and turning up the music on the ride back to Toorak 😉 Really friendly, easy to deal with and very competitive on price, would definitely recommend.  – Lauren – Toorak

Adam at Wine Compass created a great experience for family. He specifically tailored the experience to our needs based on what we like/don’t like. We even found a brewery that was closed but thanks to Adam’s connection in the area they opened up just for us. I would recommend to anyone who wants a personal and unique wine experience with no hassle. – Julian – WA

Adam took my girlfriends and I out for a great day in the Yarra Valley. He was knowledgeable, put together a great itinerary and very friendly throughout the day 🙂 I would definitely book with WineCompass again and recommend to anyone who is after a fun day. – Shek – Sydney

We had a fantastic day out with Adam and Wine Compass! Adam was a pleasure to deal with and in consultation with the group, put together an itinerary that was spot on! Adam had a great knowledge of the area and provided us with excellent information about all of the wineries we visited. So hard to pick a favourite for the day. They were all fantastic. Was also great to visit a new winery in the area, Polperro! We had a 3 year old on our tour and every effort was made to accommodate this, including being able to strap the car seat into the bus, as well as the catering at lunch. Highly recommend Adam and the rest of the team. Guaranteed fun day out! – Claire – Dromana

We had a great day out with Wine Compass. Adam chose a great range of wineries for us to visit with the highlight being Bluestone Lane. A must for anyone visiting the area. Highly recommend Adam nad his team for a fun dday out! – Caroline – Melbourne

We were celebrating a friends 60th birthday. It was a Mother/Daughter weekend. I contacted Adam and he tailor made a tour to suit us. Laurence collected us from our accommodation, He was friendly and obliging and was happy to do whatever we wanted. He gave us time to be by ourselves when we were at he wineries we had a fabulous visit to a cheesery and a great lunch. The best wine tour I have ever been on and real value for money. – Sally Ann – Mornington

Friendly tolerant and helpful tour guide, thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend.
And may use again. Loved it. – Elle – Mt Martha

Adam did a great job. He was reliable, friendly and knowledgeable. Importantly, he has good relations with the local vineyards and that made the experience even more enjoyable. Adam was also able to break the day with a lunch-time visit to a local restaurant that was also very enjoyable. We’d have no hesitation in recommending Wine Compass to anyone who wants an enjoyable day touring the vibrant local wine industry.  – Kerrie – Sydney

We engaged Adam at Wine Compass after searching for a private tour service to discover the wines at Mornington Peninsular. Even though we had provided him with a list of places we wanted to visit, he tweeked our itinerary on the day to make sure that we received the very best experience that the region had to offer. Adam provides a very professional service right from the first point of contact via email to dropping us back to our hotel at the end of the day. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and has a great passion for wine. We would highly recommend Wine Compass for anyone wanting a local’s perspective of the Mornington Peninsular that you cannot read about in brochures.
