History - St Hubert's wine-making legacy transformed into Yarra Valley's newest cellar door and winery restaurant
Founded by Charles Hubert de Castella in 1862, Hubert Estate is one the oldest wineries in the Yarra Valley. St Hubert was a champion of the Yarra Valley wine renaissance in the 1960’s and helped position the wine region as one of the most popular wine destinations in the world. This legendary Yarra Valley institution has a 100 year history of producing amazing cool climate wines. These wine blends include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Roussanne under the famous St Hubert's The Stag brand.
Hubert Estate went through a recent design-led renovation by the father-son duo Gerry & Andy Ryan. They've added a beautiful modern touch to the 100 year old winery heritage at St Hubert’s Estate. The winery has a brand new fine-dining restaurant Quarters, a state-of-the-art cellar door featuring St Hubert's The Stag wine blends and an art gallery housing Gerry Ryan's treasured collection of aboriginal art.
“Established in 1862 as one of the first wineries in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, St Hubert's has a long history of producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon. Today it continues to be lauded for its portfolio of cool climate wines which also include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Roussanne”
- Greg Jarratt (Winemaker at Hubert Estate)
Overview - The ultimate helicopter winery tour in the Yarra Valley wine region
Experience a 25 minute scenic helicopter flight from Melbourne to the Hubert Estate winery. The scenic helicopter flight from Melbourne is a serene experience. You'll float past the Dandenong Ranges and over the lush green landscape of the Yarra Valley. These vineyards have been producing some of the best wine in the world for over a 100 years.
1st Stop: Wine Tasting at St Hubert's Cellar Door
Upon landing at the private helipad nestled amongst the vines at Hubert Estate, take a short stroll to Hubert Estate's state-of-the-art cellar door which emerges from a hillside on the property, and is quite possibly the most recognisable piece of architecture in the Yarra Valley.
Enjoy a luxurious wine tasting experience of up to 8 wines by the glass across the range including The Stag Victoria Pinot Noir, the St Hubert’s Chardonnay and the St Hubert’s Blanc de Noir. As our special guest you'll also be treated to a light cheese platter to accompany your wine tour.

When your wine tasting has come to a close, your reserved table at Quarters restaurant will become available for you to enjoy your delicious, gourmet winery lunch. Your winery lunch experience will include dishes from an Australian-European tasting menu designed by Head Chef, Michael Smith.
Think hearty vegetable dishes with local meat and fresh seafood produce, wood-fired pizzas made from an Italian Marana pizza oven and fresh pasta that is hand-made on site. This is a winery lunch menu that the founder, Charles Hubert de Castella, would definitely approve of.
3rd Stop: Visit Hubert Estate's indigenous Art Gallery
Following your gourmet lunch, take a short-walk and explore Hubert Estate's very own art gallery. Learn the stories behind the artwork from over 20 indigenous artists around Australia including Polly Ngale and Yannima Tommy Watson.

We had the pleasure of flying with Ed out to Hubert Estate winery for a wine tasting and lunch this weekend.
From the moment we met Ed, he was very accomodating and gave us a tour of the Hanger, as well as took photos of us in front of the helicopter.
We had the best time flying out to the winery and loved every second. On the way back, we were easily persuaded to take a longer route home, flying over St Kilda bay, Melbourne city and doing a lap of the MCG.
We had the best day and could not recommend rotor one enough, and will definitely be back again!
Thank you Ed for an unforgettable experience.
This was the best experience ever. Ed was an amazing pilot and provided a service of a life time. Very generous with his time and highly recommend!!!
Highly recommend. Ed was great and the ride to Hubert Estate was spectacular. The wine tasting and lunch were excellent. On the way back Ed took us over the city and out over the harbor where we got a birds eye view of our cruise ship. A tour not to be missed.
A fantastic day with Ed travelling to and from the Yarra Valley. A very smooth flight, lots of information about the journey and a really interesting experience. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a fun and enjoyable experience!
