'Nothing more excellent
or valuable than wine was ever granted by the gods to man'

Sure, some winery tours will drive
you around a few vineyards, but Grape Explorations Australia believe you deserve so much more.

As soon as you step into Estella, our luxury Mercedes-Benz vehicle that will provide your transport, you will know that you are going to be treated to an exceptional day. 

This is not just a wine tour: it’s a relaxed and sophisticated journey into the gloriousness of our region’s wineries: the countryside, the characters and, of course, the wine.

What makes Grape Explorations Australia tours exceptional? Your hosts. They have a unique combination of interests and experience which combine to create a powerball of winery prowess.

The Tour Guides' families have lived
in the area for over fifty years. They have been part of the growth that has made it into the sensational wine region it is today and they know a secret or two! Local knowledge combined with experience in the retail and entertainment industries they know how to keep clients happy.

Take a Grape Explorations Australia tour and experience the allure of the region in a way you will never forget. You deserve it.

Grape Explorations Australia specialise in group outings. The luxury vehicle holds up to 11 clients and we tailor each tour to the group dynamic. It may be a Corporate team outing or a group of friends who simply want to sample wine and not drive!

We will ensure that everyone has an educational and fun day out

 

The Mornington Peninsula which is a special place where vines thrive in sheltered valleys. Cool climate wines are abundant and it is here you will find fabulous award-winning Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays as well as Pinot Grigio and Shiraz. 

There are 200 small-scale vineyards and more than 50 cellar doors in the Mornington Peninsula region - enough to keep us busy for a while!

The Yarra Valley is the region where Victoria’s wine industry began back in the 1830s.

The diverse soils and temperate weather enable the Yarra Valley to produce a wide range of classic wine styles. Renowned for its outstanding cool climate wines: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, sparkling wines and savoury Roses.

Each Grape Explorations Australia Wine Region tour provides you with a casual yet sophisticated insight into what the region has to offer. Each tour includes:

 

  • Pick up & drop off from one location in Melbourne CBD, your Mornington Peninsula address or your holiday accommodation.

 

  • 4 or 5 Cellar Door or alternative venues (Depending on pick up location).

 

  • All wine tasting fees and a leisurely grazing style lunch.

  • Complimentary chilled sparkling or still water throughout the day.

At Grape Explorations Australia, we love our planet and we want to show we care. We like to do our little bit by avoiding plastic bottles - we hate them! So, we offer you reusable glass bottles for your refreshment during the day. Even better, bring your own drink bottle! Either way, we’ll keep it filled with chilled sparkling or still water throughout the day.

I’ve been on a number of wine tours in
the past, but this was by far and away the best. We visited amazing places I had never heard of and even the time aboard the bus was fun!
