The Island Tasting Tour is for those wanting to spend a few hours indulging in some great scenery and local produce on Phillip Island.

The tour visits two of Phillip Island’s premier beer and wine producers – Purple Hen Winery and Rusty Waters (Phillip Island) Brewery.

At Purple Hen you can chat to a winery representative as you taste a range of both white and red ‘cool climate’ award-winning wines. From here you will enjoy a scenic drive to Rusty Water Brewery Restaurant and Bar. Here you have a choice of six delicious lunch dishes with a complimentary tasting ‘paddle’ of four beers or sparkling wines.

This tour has a flexible finish time so you have the option to stay on at the Rusty Water Brewery after lunch to sample more of the local produce on offer.

Wine and beer bottles can also be purchased. Door to door transport provided. Runs Thursday to Sunday.
