Helicopter Ride to Clyde Park Winery
Overview - Winery Lunch at Clyde Park Vineyard
“The quality of Clyde Park wines is consistently exemplary.” - James Halliday, Wine Companion
With 5-Star rated wine, delicious cuisine and panoramic views of the Moorabool River, Clyde Park Winery is one of the best kept secrets for a superb cellar door and winery lunch experience outside Melbourne. Take a stunning 40 minute scenic helicopter flight from Melbourne into the rolling hills of Bannockburn, a quaint township in the Geelong wine region, then land at Clyde Park Winery.
Renowned for their Pinot Noir, Clyde Park Winery recently earned a 5-Star-Winery rating from the Halliday Wine Companion and their cellar door and wine tour experience reflects this quality in full. Choose a wine tour of their current release or premium single block wines across Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris blends and find out why the special nature of grapes, valley and soil at Clyde Park Winery make it one of Victoria's best wine destinations.
Then enjoy a delicious winery lunch with French-inspired menu in the Barrel Room / Cellar Door or outdoor terrace overlooking the winery. Our favourites have to be the Roasted Lamb Ragu Gnocchi with burrata and Barramundi with Sauvignon Blanc risotto, however it's hard to go past Clyde Park's famous Peking Duck Wood-Fired Pizza made in their giant copper pizza oven.

Incredible flight and the winery was excellent. I will never forgot the flight back over Melbourne. The scenary was epic over the cityscape! Our pilot, Ed was a pleasure in every way and he actually made our VIP experience so much better.
There is a downside to this though, I don't think I'll ever be able to drive to a winery ever again..! Heli-wine is the future.
My final thoughts - do it.! Treat yourself and I'm sure, like me, you won't regret a single thing.
Thank you Rotor One...!
Our Pilot Ed took us out for a fantastic afternoon trip to Clyde Park Estate for a great winery lunch. The helicopter ride was awesome and our winery lunch was fantastic. We arranged to arrive a bit later and had the place almost to ourselves. Our Pilot Ed was also a great host. Looking forward to going again.
