Melbourne is spoilt with choice when it comes to fine dinning and wineries. Just to the East of Melbourne lays one Victoria’s best wine regions with countless numbers of wineries smatter the pristine landscapes and mountain views that are best seen and frequented by the air (Helicopters of course)
Prior to booking a winery visit, many of our guests ask us. Which is the best winery to visit. Well, the answer is not always straight forward. Every winery has its own story, a great selection of food, fantastic wines, spectacular service and majestic views.
To the point is is very difficult for us to give the best four wineries in the Yarra Valley to visit.
Well, not really, our criteria is simple. A winery that is recommended by the team at Mile High Australia must meet the following criteria.
- Must have great views, and place to land a helicopter or two
- Must provide service that you expect from a fine dinning restaurant in Melbourne.
- Staff treat you like you are their only concern
- Meals served must contain a portion of local grown / sourced produce
- Wines are just to die for.
Let us get to the point. In our guests opinions which are the best 5 Yarra valley wineries.
Zonzo is a winery that is located in the flats of the Yarra Valley. The views over the vines with the ranges in the background make some of the best views in the region.
Zonzo’s restaurant serves what can only be described as the most authentic Italian cuisine, with pizzas that cannot be matched anywhere. Thats a big call. In fact, we challenge anyone who can find a better pizza anywhere in Victoria.
There wines cover the majority of tastes. Incorporating, a great range of both reds and whites or this that prefer a craft beer Zonzo has something for everyone.
Be treated like a Prince or princess by combining your trip to Zonzo’s with a helicopter flight by the team at Mile High Australia.
Stones on the Yarra Valley
Stones on the Yarra Valley is a venue that screams yes please!. Widely renown as a Wedding reception centre. Stones incorporates a modern feel with a vintage farmhouse setting.
What ever we say about this venue will do it justice. The views are remarkable. Wide open spaces, great old fashion service, and staff that make you feel like you are the only people there.
Once again a helicopter flight into Stones is the only way to travel and see the pristine sights of the Yarra Valley.
Known for it world class wines, fine dinning and perfect service, Levantine Hills is a world class venue.
In our opinion it is one of the must visit wineries in the region. In fact, Levantines Hills only downfall is the large format restaurant that during peak times diminishes the romance of the Yarra Valley.
A venue that has it all, Balgownie boasts spectacular views, on-site accommodation, Fine dinning, wines that just scream have another glass and last but not least a day spa.
Looking for that prefect venue for a hens party, wedding, milestone birthday, or that marriage proposal. This venue is boutique and a must visit.
Getting to the venue is part of the fun. The team at Mile High Australia have some great packages that include complimentary door to door pick up, return to your door. Is were any better way to travel.
