Why do a Mornington Peninsula wine tour with the Peninsula’s number one small group tour company Amour Of The Grape Tours?

Absolutely awesome wine tour. Paul was a fabulous guide, incredibly friendly, accomodating and knowledgeable. This was a girls day out and was made all the better for booking with Paul, I will definitely be using him again in the future and recommend him to anyone looking for a hassle free wine tour on the peninsula.”

“Paul was an excellent tour guide he made the day so fun and was full of knowledge. We had a brilliant day I would definitely book another tour with Amour of the Grape!”

From Alex on Trip Advisor, visited August, 2017

“This was nothing but a fantastic experience! Customer service and the knowledge was amazing, as well as the beautiful smaller wineries they took us too. Being a local from this area I thought I might have been bored, but in fact it was the complete opposite as I learnt and saw new things about the area that surrounds my home. Thank you so much for an amazing experience guys!

“Paul was an absolute gentleman and gave us a great day! Would highly recommend this great man! Wouldn’t find a better bloke!”

From Anthony on Trip Advisor, visited March, 2017.

“Can’t recommend this tour highly enough! The tour showcased some of the smaller wineries in the region, and we were also given the opportunity to visit the local brewery and fromagerie. But the tour wouldn’t have been as great as it was without Paul, who was an entertaining and knowledgable host.”

From Yi, on Trip Advisor, visited January, 2017.

“A fun, memorable day from start to finish. Paul was the most wonderful host both on the day and with his communication in the lead-up to our winery tour. He was extremely knowledgeable, funny and interesting and we could see how well respected he was with the winery owners/staff and has built a wonderful business which you can tell he loves. I recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience the fabulous wines the Mornington Peninsula has to offer, in great company! Thanks Paul and keep doing what you love!”

From Emma on Trip Advisor, visited November, 2016.

Thank you to Paul who is a ripping human being. We had the best time ever on our first Winery Tour. Paul knew his stuff, was happy and friendly, and was able to provide a relaxing and enjoyable day. Shout out to the Irish legends also, who made us feel a part of their crew! Love Calvin and Melissa.”

From Calvin and Melissa on Trip Advisor, visited November, 2016.

“A brilliant Wine Tour in a small group of 7 people. We visited 4 wineries and one brewery all in the Mornington Peninsula area. Paul was a very informative and knowledgeable host. Everyone on board was very impressed with the entire day. They also do other tours and transfers which would also be great.”

From Muzza on Trip Advisor, visited September, 2016.

“Had an amazing day with Paul! Very knowledgeable, super friendly and has a great rapport with all the cellar doors on the winery tour we had booked!! We went with another couple that we had not met before and Paul made us all feel like great friends! Would definitely recommend for all occasions. Thanks for a great day.”
From Jake and Pip on Trip Advisor, visited May, 2016.

“Paul was very knowledgeable and there were 7 ladies and he treated us with respect and always helped us in and out of the bus. Was fabulous to have the tour to ourselves and lunch was wonderful and all the boutique wineries we visited was much better than the big tourist ones. Well worth booking. Great value.”

Through our close relationships with the Mornington Peninsula wineries, we can ensure you get personalised attention and a chance to taste some of Australia’s finest drops while experiencing panoramic views. You may even get a chance to meet the winemaker themselves. Being locally based enables us to know our cellar doors and we endeavour to stay up to date on what is available, be aware of when new vintages are released and when particular styles are out of stock.

The Mornington Peninsula is famous for but certainly not limited to its Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and cool climate Shiraz but whatever blend strikes your fancy, we can find a winery to suit your tastes.

No two tours are the same so to assist us in planning the day we encourage you to discuss with us your preferences in wine styles. We are then able to plan the day taking into consideration your likes and dislikes.
