Bay cruise and private tastings

January 4 @ 9:30 am - January 30 @ 5:00 pm

Departing Docklands at 9.30am, cruise in comfort to Portarlington to enjoy an afternoon at the Bellarine’s award-winning winery, Scotchmans Hill. 

A courtesy bus will then deliver you to the prestigious cellar door. The short drive will take you through the small coastal town, past rolling hills and farm land. As you arrive you’ll admire breathtaking views over the vineyards and Port Phillip Bay to the Melbourne skyline.

In an intimate private experience you will take part in a tutored tasting of two brackets of five wines, including some exclusive vintages. Enjoy the wines with a delicious lunch of freshly made platters of antipasto and cheese. Be sure to note your favourite tasting of the afternoon, as your all-inclusive ticket incorporates a glass of wine at the end of the private session for you to enjoy under the umbrellas on the terrace or inside the newly renovated French provincial Cellar Door.

Once your visit to Scotchmans Hill is complete, the courtesy bus will drop you in Portarlington to peruse the main street. Get yourself a coffee, maybe an ice-cream or sink your toes into the sand at the foreshore. The ferry then departs Portarlington Pier at 3:30pm and you will arrive back at Docklands at 5.00pm.

This exclusive experience is limited to 11 people per session.

BOOK HERE.  Running every Tuesday and Thursday through January.

Cost – $75 per person.

Price includes return ferry ticket from Docklands, Melbourne; transport to and from Scotchmans Hill; the private tasting experience, including shared antipasto platters; and a glass of wine at the conclusion of the private tasting.
