Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Flight over the Yarra Valley with Winery Tour
Our exciting Sunrise Balloon Flight over the Yarra Valley & Winery Tour combines two of the most popular activities in the Yarra Valley - the magic of hot air balloons, fine wine and food. This is the ultimate experience that you will remember forever!
The Yarra Valley is one of Victoria's most spectacular winery regions. Let the breeze usher you along the corridors of grape vines and over the Yarra River as you take in the breathtaking views of mountains that surround the valley. The Yarra Valley is situated only 50 minutes from Melbourne's city centre.
You will then be transported to the launch site where you may help with the launch, or stand back and take pictures. Then away we go, drifting gently over the countryside in our beautiful balloon. Your flight will last for approximately one hour.
After we make our final landing and pack the balloon away you will enjoy a delicious breakfast with a glass of sparkling wine. After breakfast you will be taken on an amazing winery tour of the Yarra Valley.
Your Yarra Valley Winery Tour showcases one of Australia's best winery regions, the Yarra Valley. Renowned for its quality wines, specialty foods and breathtaking scenery is the perfect place to enjoy a day away from the city. (Tour wineries & format may change without notice).
At 11.00am we will arrive at the Yering Station Vineyards. Yering Station is one of Australia's most spectacular winery set-ups. We'll start the day by showing you how to swirl, sniff and slurp and then you'll be ready to taste some of Yering Station's award winning benchmark classic Australian wines.
At 12.00pm we will arrive at Rochford Wines which is our destination for lunch. Rochford's have long been the benchmark for style and class in the Yarra Valley and the wines also live up to this reputation. The first 1/2 hour will be spent at the tasting table, a great opportunity to make a wine selection for lunch! Then it's into the Restaurant for a superb lunch while taking in magnificent vineyard views. Lunch includes main meal, a glass of Rochford wine and tea or coffee.
Next stop is Yering Farm Vineyards and we should arrive at approximately 1.40pm. Yering Farm has stunning views and is oozing with rustic charm. Experience wines made with traditional wine making methods in their cellar door which showcases antique copper wine making tools used by pioneer winemakers over a century ago. A fantastic environment to enjoy superb wines.
At 2.15pm we will arrive at our last stop for the day which is Domaine Chandon. French Champagne company Moet & Chandon's Australian production house Domaine Chandon is the perfect way to finish the day with a guided tour through the winery that shows how the wine is made followed by a relaxing glass of Australia's best bubbly with tasty light platters and a view that will leave you in awe. Spectacular to say the least.
