Giants of Art and Wine Tour
Price: From $250pp. A private wine tour that includes a fascinating narrative about the many sculpture collections in the region that have secured the Peninsula's reputation as the outdoor art capital of Australia.
This is not your typical gallery experience as this tour breathes fresh air into a living art studio fuelled by nature, wine, and people. The Mornington Peninsula has become an outdoor sculpture Mecca since Baillieu Myer AC and Dame Elizabeth Murdoch AC DBE laid down an ambitious plan to create Australia’s premier Sculpture Park. Their vision surrounds us on a visit to McClelland Sculpture Parkbefore we venture south to enjoy a tasting and tour of Point Leo Estate and wander about the outstanding sculpture collection by some of the world’s most iconic artists. The sea is the backdrop here and at Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove where we tour the wines, the grounds with sculptures and then lunch. We then head into the hills to watch artists at work at Gordon Studio Glassblowersbefore visiting wineries and finishing with an intimate tour and tasting of Arthur's wife's award winning wines at Willow Creek Vineyard part of the extraordinary Jackalope Hotel.
Tour in a luxurious Mercedes Benz, enjoy a morning feast with sparkling wine overlooking Western Port Bay, exclusive access and special wine deals.
