Round the Bay Winery Day Trip

A Daycation filled with tastings.

Wine tasting is a fun days outing -traipsing from cellar door to cellar door, tasting the best of a region, sometimes sampling from the barrel, touring behind the scenes or chatting at the wine pour directly with the winemaker.  It’s an experience that never quiet translated over a ‘zoom’ tasting. 

Staying close to home and taking a day trip does not have to mean only one region as Victorians can sample two amazing wine regions in just one day – the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsulas.  With superb, locally grown and produced wines, a ton of cellar doors and a quick connection across the bay by ferry, it’s a daycation worth doing.   

Wineries are nearby and two or three cellar doors can be reasonably achieved on each peninsula. 

1

Montalto Vineyard

Perched on a hill, overlooking the vineyard and sculpture park is Monington Peninuslas’ Montalto Vineyard, where the warm and welcoming cellar door team will hand-pick a selection of wine varietals, and guide you through the Montalto range.

2

Tucks

Tucks for something a little different, a blind wine tasting. Yes, blind! Scribble your notes, mark the wine out of ten and all is revealed at the end. It makes the whole experience a bit more fun, kicks bias to the kerb and you have a chance to sip’n’spit (if that’s your thing) with an open mind.

3

Foxey's Hang Out

Foxeys Hang Out has a casual, laid back feel with a great vibe and sensational views. Wine tasting is mixed in with a cool café, and if the weather is nice the outside deck captures the sun and is a great spot to sit and just be.
