      About this Melbourne Tour

      If you like Australian wine, some of your favorites may come from the Mornington Peninsula. The cool coastal climate, with an average temperature of 68 degrees, is perfect for grape-growing. The southern Australian region, a popular vacation region close to Melbourne, has breathtaking scenery and over 270 vineyards and 60 cellar doors.

      While attempts at growing wine in this region date back to the end of the 19th century, the first continuous vineyards didn't get established until the 1970s. Since then, the wine industry has flourished in the peninsula, making everything from classic favorites like pinot noir and chardonnay to less well-known wines like arneis, sangiovese, and gewurtztraminer.

      On this three-hour tour, you'll get to visit two Mornington Peninsula wineries, see their vineyards, and taste their wines, as you see the region from a unique perspective, on horseback. If you are a horse-riding novice, you will be teamed with a guide who will help you every step of the way. If you know your way around the stable, you'll get a horse that will suit your pace. Either way, tour guides will tell you what you're seeingand tasting.

      The rolling hills and gentle roads on the tour are comfortable for all horseback riders as well as for the horses, which are professionally trained and outfitted. And the scenery is amazing, giving you a taste of Australia's most beautiful backgrounds. Between the horseback riding, the excellent views, and the delicious wine tastings, you'll be toasting to a great day.

       

      Wine Time
      For decades, beer was Australia's most popular alcoholic beverage. And the country was known as a hard-drinking nation. But times have changed. Not only is alcohol consumption down overall in the country, but also, wine is close to overtaking beer in popularity. Fifty years ago, Australians drank 20 times more beer than wine. Now the gap is closing, thanks to a more sophisticated Australian palate, as well as the rise of women as consumers.
