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 the Yarra Valley.
With uninterrupted views of the Yarra Valley, the Stones of the Yarra Valley winery offers multiple unique restaurant experiences. The Barn — a beautiful tuscan-inspired restaurant — and The Stables at Stones farmhouse — an intimate wedding venue and restaurant — both offering seasonal restaurant menus matched wines from Yarra Valley's best wineries and superb degustation options.
Right next door and set against the backdrop of apple orchards and aged oak trees is the extremely popular Meletos restaurant (also known as Meletos Café). With an equally 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, Melotos winery and The Stones of the Yarra Valley restaurant make the perfect romantic getaway to the Yarra Valley from Melbourne by helicopter.

Our flight was so awesome and Ed our pilot was amazing! Highly recommend for a wonderful adventure!
What a great day from start to finish and a way to kick off 2022!
With so many Heli winery trips out there i was waiting to find one that was a little more relaxed and different so was thrilled to see the Brewery, Burgers & Gin tour! From the moment i contacted Rotor One to ask some questions and book, their customer service and communication was great, friendly and always helpful which made the decision to spend this money a lot easier knowing we would be in great hands. Each venue looked after us well and our pilot made sure personally that our day was running smoothly. Definitely felt like VIP's for the day with Rotor One as well as all the other venues we visits.
Our pilot Ed was awesome! Went above and beyond all day to ensure we had a great trip. He was very friendly and easy to get along with. He is a great pilot, the flight was so smooth and flawless. Ed was attentive and knowledgeable and able to point out a lot of sights along our flight. He is a pure natural and helps make the experience what it is.
You will not be disappointed, It was a day to remember!
We have just had the bay tour, just over an hour flying past the city and completely around the bay, what an experience. I would highly recommend Melbourne Heli for their professional approach, very clear and friendly instructions at the start and made us both feel very comfortable during the entire flight, amazing experience.
This flight experience was a gift of our wedding anniversary. It was a great decision and wow, what an amazing experience.
The pilot was very kind and gave us plenty of time for photos, we are very happy with our photos, thanks to the pilot (Ed) for the couple photos and for a smooth and stress free flight experience. We would do it again in the future.
Flight experience itself looks short when you are up in the sky so defiantly would recommend at least half an hour flight.
For a first time flier, Ed was super friendly and really put me at ease. He was thorough in his explanations and made sure to let me know in advance if there were any sharp turns. We had such a magical time and the views were amazing! It was so much fun and we got to see so many iconic Melbourne landmarks. Would definitely recommend and could see myself doing this again! Thanks Ed!
