Wine Tasting on the Mornington Peninsula

From big and bold Shiraz to subtle Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the Mornington Peninsula is a must visit wine region. You can either observe from afar or get a hands-on taste of the wine making process.

Just because it’s a wine tasting on the Mornington Peninsula, it doesn’t mean it has to be super formal. During our tours, we believe in creating a welcoming, laid-back and inclusive atmosphere that makes everyone feel relaxed and comfortable. This approach is at the heart of every Tee Pee Tour.

Tee Pee Tours – 5 Step Process

Step 1: First Contact: Your Call, Your Tour: Planning Your Ideal Experience

After we receive your online contact form or your booking form or you’ve called on 0423 237 833, our friendly staff will discuss your requirements in detail. We will send options, prices and itinerary options either via email or text.

Whether it’s a wine tour, day trip, brewery tour, hens or bucks party, we’re here to tailor-make the perfect tour for you. Next, we’ll email or text a little more to just get it absolutely perfect for your day out. Some groups can be happy with the very first itinerary we talk about and this process is done in one email. Others want to explore all sorts of options. Either way, we are here for it!

After we get a better understanding of your interests, group size and personal style, we’re more than happy to provide some recommendations. We’ll then confirm where you want to go, what you’re really looking for (Unless ‘half day tour is important?)

Step 2: Make your booking to get the plan locked in

Once we’ve laid out the perfect plan for your day, we’ll send you the details for your approval. After making any necessary changes, we’ll get you to make a booking by paying a deposit on our website by clicking ‘Book Here’, then ‘Private Tours’. This is a non-refundable $100 deposit.

Once this booking is made and the plan is set, we then immediately book all of the venues discussed, allocate a vehicle, a driver and make sure everything is locked in. Sometimes people go straight to this step without contacting us, so we will make sure we get a plan going ASAP after you’ve booked.

Rest assured, our tours are flexible and we’re always happy to tweak things to make sure your day is exactly as you imagined.

Step 3: Rounding up the Troops

From the moment we have received your $100 deposit, things are locked in. We have got everything ready on our end. It’s now your job to start getting everyone organised and find out what your final numbers will be. We also recommend checking for any dietary requirements, finalising the pickup and drop off address, and any other minor details that we may need to know.

If everyone is paying for themselves, then we recommend collecting payments from them ASAP so we can get a good idea on numbers early. It’s in everyone’s best interest for this number to be communicated honestly, realistically, and frequently. The number of people dictates the price, the vehicle we use and the driver who can drive that vehicle.

Step 4: The Week Before and the Final Email

7 days before the tour, we will email you to give you all the very final details so you won’t have any more questions. This final email will include the driver’s details, the itinerary, rules expected behaviours, vehicle details and payment instructions. Payment will be via bank transfer/invoice or a payment link can be sent.

We do not require full payment until 2 days before the tour. Once payment is made and we are all good to go, there’s nothing left to do, except drink!

Step 5: The Day of Your Tour

On the day of your tour, our professional and friendly staff will be there to pick you up and drop you off wherever we have discussed and planned. Our guides provide recommendations, plenty of banter and overall, make sure everything runs smoothly. We have a bit of a common sense approach to the day.

If we feel something isn’t working or that people need more of this or less of this, we are always happy to add a few bottles on the table, or a cheese platter or whatever we think is reasonable. We want to make sure this is the best day ever so you’ll join us once again!

You got a question do ya?

I have someone that doesn't drink... Can they get a discount?

Absolutely! Anyone coming on a wine tasting of the Mornington Peninsula is welcome. We can give huge discounts to people who are basically just having lunch!

How many people can you fit on your Mornington Peninsula wine tours?

1-11 in our mini bus.

24 is the absolute max our bigger bus! We can do more but it will come at a cost as we’d need to hire another bus!

Can kids come on your Mornington Peninsula wine tours?

Sure! We have infant baby seats and can accommodate for children. Anyone under 18 years of age comes for free!

What's included in group winery tours of the Mornington Peninsula?

A tasting normally involves a small amount of wine, perhaps a little bit more than what you would get in a shot of tequila. Generally at each vineyard, you receive 6-7 wines. This equates to one glass at each venue. You will also be invited to listen to the cellar doors wine experts to teach you about what flavours you might be able to taste and how the wine was made….However…if you don’t care too much about that, just smile and drink!

We have some Vegans...

Nobody’s perfect. But we can happily accommodate for all dietary requirements!

Can I bring drinks on the bus?

For sure! As long as you clean up after yourselves and are somewhat respectful, that’s all good with us!

Can you pick me up/drop me off from anywhere?

Yep! No worries. As long as you’re departing from Melbourne or somewhere along the way to the destination, we’ll pick you up and drop you off at multiple locations. This applies to every guided one of our Mornington Peninsula wine tours.

What should we bring if we are doing group winery tours on the Mornington Peninsula?

We have an esky with ice and go to a place with tables and chairs. The picnic can be as fancy or as laid back as you want it to be. You can bring as much as you want. The only thing you cannot bring is your own alcohol as the picnic stop is a winery with their own wines and beers. Fortunately, you are able to buy drinks there.

During your Yarra Valley tour, we can also provide cheese platters at the wineries that are really good so if you’d like to choose cheese let us know and that will save you bringing things like boards, cheese, knives etc….

What makes Tee Pee Tours different from other wine tour operators?

We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We believe that running a tour is about creating the best possible atmosphere, one that’s relaxed, flexible, sociable, and inclusive. We put an emphasis on getting everyone to connect..and not in a lame cheesy way. Through organic conversation, or a communal playlist, We Get People Talking. We offer end-to-end transportation and let you decide where we go and how long we stay. Plus, our tour durations are very adaptable.

Does Tee Pee Tours cater to people who are not very interested in wine?

Of course! While we specialise in wine tours, we understand that not everyone’s a wine lover. That’s why we offer a range of alternatives including behind-the-scenes looks at Victorian restaurants, estates, breweries, and distilleries.

I'm organising a hen’s party in Melbourne. Can Tee Pee Tours help me plan the event?

Yes, we can! Our hens party wine tours are specially designed to provide an unforgettable experience for the entire group. We take care of every detail, allowing you to focus on having a great time.

I'm a seasoned wine enthusiast. Can Tee Pee Tours offer me a unique experience?

Definitely! We offer personalised wine tours, where we tailor the itinerary to match your preferences. This also comes with direct access to local wine makers and hands-on wine making activities. Even if some people in the group don’t love wine and others absolutely love it, we can pick places where we can split the group up. This is usually easy as some of the places are literally next door to one another. We know the Melbourne Wine regions so well that we know exactly where the wine-enthusiast will appreciate things, and where the others will find ways to enjoy it too.
