Overview - Winery Lunch at Meletos or The Stones of the Yarra Valley Restaurant

The Stones of the Yarra Valley winery is rated one of the best wineries and restaurants in the Yarra Valley and is a short 25 minute helicopter ride from Melbourne. With a rich history in the Yarra Valley dating back to the 1800s, the Stones of the Yarra Valley farmhouses were once used as sleeping quarters for stable hands but have since been transformed into one of the best winery lunch experiences in the Yarra Valley.

With uninterrupted views of the Yarra Valley and the Great Dividing Range,  Meletos restaurant (also known as Meletos Café) is a beautiful tuscan-inspired restaurant set against the backdrop of apple orchards and aged oak trees. With an outstanding reputation for fresh seasonal dishes, curated wines and flawless service, bookings for Meletos are as highly sought after as their restaurant menu, especially on weekends.

When arriving by helicopter from Melbourne your flight lands directly at Meletos winery, just a few steps away from the rear entrance to Meletos restaurant.

After your private landing, you'll be seated at your table for a delicious three course lunch menu with rich seafood, meat, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, along with a glass of wine (we'd recommend a No.7 Healesville blend) or beer (brewed on-site at the Meletos Brewhouse).

If you prefer to be a little more spontaneous, Meletos also offers walk-in options for the Meletos Garden, a beautiful outdoor restaurant with bar and rotisserie, and the Meletos Brewhouse, a boutique brewery and restaurant with a delicious food menu and fine ales on tap.

With so many restaurant and wine options, Meletos winery and The Stones of the Yarra Valley restaurant make the perfect romantic getaway to the Yarra Valley from Melbourne by helicopter.

      Where are you located?

      Rotor One is located at Essendon Airport which is 15 from Melbourne CBD. Our address is Hangar 7 Wirraway Rd, Essendon Fields and we have off-street parking next to our building. When you arrive look for the red door that says 'Melbourne Heli'.

      When should I arrive?

      Please arrive 10 minutes before your booking begins for a relaxed experience.

      Do you depart from other locations, like the City Helipad?

      We depart from Essendon Airport as you have an amazing view of the Melbourne City skyline from the moment you step onto the tarmac. We do not offer flights from the City Helipad on the Yarra River.

      What is the minimum age requirement for children?

      Children aged 3 years and older can fly. Our pilots will give them special attention to ensure they have an amazing time. All children will have their own window seat and pay the same seat price (we don't offer discounts for children as we make sure they have even more fun than the adults 😁)

      Can bad weather prevent us from flying?

      Yes, adverse weather conditions such as low cloud, fog, heavy rain or high winds may require your flight to be delayed or rescheduled. If this is the case, your pilot will contact you at least 2 hours prior to your booking time to reschedule your flight to another day/time or provide a full refund.

      Google says there's will be bad weather on the day. Should I reschedule?

      There's no need to contact us to reschedule based on a weather forecast as they're often inaccurate, especially in Melbourne! We use live weather data on the day of your flight to determine if flights can be conducted safely. We'll contact you at least 2 hours prior to your flight if bad weather could delay your flight.

      Why do I need to provide my weight?

      We use this to calculate the weight and balance of the helicopter prior to flight. If you have any guests weighing over 120kg or a combined passenger weight of more than 240kg, please contact us prior to booking.

      Can I use my camera or phone during flight?

      Yes, we encourage you to take as many photos and videos on the ground, and in the air, as possible.

      What should I wear?

      Please bring a pair of sunglasses and you're welcome to wear clothing appropriate to the weather. We do recommend a wind-breaker jacket for any sunrise / doors-off flights and also when flying on our 12 Apostles tour as both experiences can be windy.

      Do I need to be double vaccinated to fly?

      We encourage all our passengers to be double vaccinated to fly.

      Can I bring any luggage?

      Light handbags and small backpacks weighing less than 5kg can be carried. For any larger items please contact us prior to your flight.

      Can I fly if I'm pregnant?

      Yes, and we recommend flying prior to your third trimester.

      Can I fly if I'm in a wheelchair?

      Yes, our hangar is wheelchair-accessible and we warmly welcome passengers with special needs. Please contact us if you have any questions.

      What is your cancellation policy?

      Please see our cancellation policy for more information.

      Contact us anytime on (03) 7065 1888 or if you'd like to make changes to your booking or have any questions.

      Can I reschedule my flight?

      Yes, up to 48 hours before your departure time and on one occasion. We unfortunately cannot accomodate any reschedule requests with less than 48 hours notice as we make commitments to ensure your Pilot and Helicopter are reserved exclusively for you on the day.

      Can I get a refund on my flight if my plans change?

      Yes, up to 48 hours before your departure time. Please note there is a 10% cancellation fee for any bookings cancelled at your request.

      What happens if the helicopter cannot fly due to bad weather?

      Our team will call you up to 2 hours before your departure to reschedule your flight or provide a full refund.

      Can I get a refund on a Gift Voucher I bought for someone?

      Perfect start to our summer holidays

      Our experience with Rotor One was flawless. Our pilot Ed made the experience incredibly enjoyable! The helicopter ride took us over the Yarra Valley to Meletos winery. We had incredibly views and arrived 20 metres from the restaurant like rockstars!
