Price: From $250pp. A private Mornington Peninsula wine tour that teaches you all about organic and biodynamic viticulture and winemaking. Learn why organic farming techniques and vineyard stewardship is the future of fine wine in Australia.
We visit wineries and farmgate producers who live and breathe organic farming and biodynamic viticulture. We begin the day tasting with Shashi Singh, the winemaker at Avani (The Earth) and a regional leader in biodynamic Syrah (Shiraz) which is made on her beautiful north-facing site in Red Hill South. Later we enjoy organic cheese from nearby Main Ridge Dairy before visiting creative winemaker, Paramdeep Ghumman at Nazaray winery in Flinders who uses a range of Burgundian and organic techniques. A luncheon banquet includes regionally inspired modern cuisine matched to local wines. Afterwards, we visit Prancing Horse Estate, the pioneers of biodynamic viticulture in the region with a cellar door featuring magical views over lush vines to Western Port Bay. The day ends with a visit to Staindl in Red Hill for a fun tasting of biodynamically crafted wines followed by a cleansing cider at the 100% certified organic Mocks Orchard who have farmed without pesticides since 1972.
We tour in a luxurious Mercedes Benz, enjoy a morning feast with sparkling wine overlooking Western Port Bay, exclusive access and special wine deals.
