Excellent day trip to the peninsula
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Day trip was excellent with our guide Bill. The wineries visited were top quality and the lunch at merricks general store was fantastic. Tour group size was only 6 so not too crowded at the tastings. Highly recommended!

Great Mornington Peninsula experience
Jan. 2020
What a great day down at the Mornington Peninsula in wine and food heaven; so much to experience in a beautifully picturesque region. The day was the perfect mix of smaller boutique wineries and the larger, more commercial producers. Lunch at Rare Hare was delightful in a superb setting overlooking the vineyards. Nicci, our host, was super accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended.

Great trip for experts and newbies
Nov. 2019 • Couples
My partner and I went on this trip to learn more about wine, and were thrilled with the level of expertise that Nicci and the winemakers could share with us while also making the experience accessible to us with less experience. Lunch was incredible at a restaurant with shared dishes that made for a friendly, engaging atmosphere. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone!

Ultimate Mornington Peninsula Small Group Food and Wine tour.
Nov. 2019 • Couples
What a great tour! Nikki was fantastic, very knowledgeable and professional! Was a pleasure being with her and the small group, the cellar door, (tasting rooms) were very accommodating. There were wines at each stop that everyone liked, and the food was excellent. The Epicurean Tour group are great ambassadors for Melbourne and Australia! Thanks!

Fantastic day out with Bill
Oct. 2019
We were picked-up promptly from our Apartment by the cheery Bill whom was very pleasant to be around for the day.
We went to Yabby Lake Vineyard first and the lady that took the tasting was very inviting and we tried some great wines (everyone in our group of 6 purchased here), then we went on to Quealy Winery and this was for me my favourite tasting overall. Loved their Rosa (a very unique wine, nothing like I've ever tasted). Everyone else enjoyed and purchased here too. The lunch Winery - Willow Creek was very plush in many ways (architecture/interior/gardens etc) The Rare Hare (Restaurant) did a lovely lunch, although I probably wouldn't race back there. We went to Port Phillip Estate Winery last and this was top-notch in many ways. Excellent tasting, stunning views, pleasurable Hostess and great wines.
We finished-of the day with a small tasting at a requested Vineyard and some sightseeing, which was lovely.
Overall a fantastic day out meeting some lovely people and tasting many different wines. Well worth the money spent!

Wonderful day in Mornington Peninsula
Oct. 2019
I joined this tour last Sunday in a very small group (me and a couple from Canada) and we spent a fantastic day in 5 different but very nice wineries in Mornington Peninsula tasting a lot of different wines produced in that area with different methods and feeling also the passion that they put in the wine production. Lunch also was very good. Nicci is a fantastic guide, she told us a lot of things about wines, wineries and about the peninsula. I've really enjoyed this day.

A 10 out of 5 Delight!
Our host Nicci met us at the hotel and we were extremely impressed the tour went ahead despite being just the two of us. And so began our day of delight! Each of the wineries we visited were unique in their own right. Not only visually stunning but warm and inviting. The wines tasted were of the highest quality and with Nicci as our guide we were indulged in a day of regional wine expertise as well as local knowledge. The highlight for us was visiting the eco winery Quealy - off the grid, rustic and a generous sharing of knowledge from the host, with unique wines. Lunch at the Rare Hare was sublime! As visitors from Brisbane looking for a unique and personable experience, this went beyond our expectations and was the highlight of our holiday. We will definitely do other tours with Epicurean when visiting again and we recommend whole heartedly this tour experience.
Thank you Nicci!

Would have just passed muster, but spoilt by a dreadful lunch
Sep. 2019
We visited four wineries: Yabby Lake Vineyard, which I found fairly uninspiring despite their many awards (and the somewhat disinterested staff); Quealy Winemakers, which was the most exciting in terms of the interesting grapes and blends they use and the enthusiasm of the staff; Stonier Wines, which I thought were offering the best Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs of the day; and Willow Creek Vineyard which also had some wonderful Chardonnay. Whilst the winery visits were on the whole good, I felt that we could have been provided with much more background information about wine growing in the local area. We stopped after the third winery for lunch at ‘Is Blue’, which was quite dreadful. I often visit wine regions to sample the local products, and usually one of the highlights of the day is the lunch- in this case exactly the opposite was true - do Epicurean Tours really think that people who have an interest in wine (and presumably food also) would be happy with eating in such a dreadful place, especially when there were lovely restaurants in some of the wineries we visited for the tastings. The moral of this story is to ask where you will lunch before booking this tour.

Our tour is friendly and relaxed, enjoyed by people wanting to try wine from a different side of the world, get to know wineries and their stories with an open mind and fun spirit. I knew this was not going to be the tour for you when I was greeted rudely at the start of the day when calling to advise where I was parked outside your hotel. The day of your tour was Fathers Day and we opened the day up for you David, asking another single guest to change her date so you could visit what you thought was the only region to taste Pinot Noir. I organised this just a few days prior so advance booking at our usual lunch venue was not an option. I spent a lot of time talking about Father's Day in a boutique wine region with you, loved by locals where lunch at wineries is a popular event. We could have sat down at our usual lunch venue at 2pm, getting there at 130pm but you had said this was too late. (I agreed) Our first time to this lunch venue and a very big mistake of mine that I was not aware of the standard. I failed again by not offering a refund for this component to you, immediately. It was a shame there was only one more lovely guest that joined us, as a few more would have been interested in your wine country travel and made the day more rewarding for you. Unfortunately the Japanese lady's english vocab wouldn't extend to clones and whole bunch pressed discussion that you felt was lacking. Our winery partners did a sterling job introducing their wine and talking about the winery. That is a great moral advice of your story that you are passing on to the TripAdvisor touring community on asking about a lunch venue. We really have taken your comments on board and if we can't book our usual lunch venues will definitely notify guests of this so thank you. It is important that I have the opportunity to defend our business reputation with detailed context. We don't aim for average. In hindsight, (that wonderful thing) we should have not gone ahead with the tour on Fathers Day a few days out so thank you again for your comments. Happy Travels David.

Great visit to Mornington Peninsula

Bill did a great job explaining history and shared a lot of knowledge about wines/vines etc and the history of the region. Another highlight was lunch at Jackalope Restaurant. All vineyards visited were very sharing and open for discussion and some great tastings

We appreciate your comments Russell and delighted that you enjoyed your day and lunch at the Mornington Peninsula. We also find the cellar door visits enthusiastic and inspiring which is why we choice them. They definitely make you feel comfortable with just enjoying wine and your day and aim not to overload you with information-so we are happy you enjoyed the experience. Bill enjoyed meeting you both. Happy Travels!
