Private wine tours for discerning visitors that take you way beyond your average cellar-door crawl for adventures with a well-connected local. Meet winemakers, visit wineries and hear stories about the local wine scene. Arthur has access to private vineyards where you will join in tastings and discover the best flavours and scenery of this stunning region. Tour highlights include:

A morning feast of premium wines served with Main Ridge and Red Hill local cheeses, olives, bread, and other delicacies enjoyed in a private beach-side location.

A behind-the-scenes, one-on-one tasting with a celebrated winemaker including Arthur's wife, Geraldine McFaul, the winemaker at Willow Creek Vineyard and maker of Elgee Park, and Baillieu Vineyard wines.

Lunch at one of the region's fine restaurants. Over summer, they gather fresh mussels from Harry's boat at Flinders Pier to be later cooked and served with local wines.

Plunge Tours collect and return you to your preferred location in a luxurious Mercedes-Benz Viano. Once on board, Arthur offers delicious, fresh local strawberries to calibrate your palate for wines and flavours enjoyed amidst stunning coastal views.
