🥇 Melbourne's #1 Rated Helicopter Company

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.

Please refer to your booking confirmation email for your departure location. Both locations have off-street parking available.

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

    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. If your flight cannot go ahead due to bad weather and you wish to cancel, we'll provide a full refund minus any credit card processing fees we've paid on your behalf.

    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! We use live weather data on the day of your flight to determine if flights can be conducted safely.

    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 130kg (300lb) or a group of 2 or 3 guests weigh more than 240kg (530lb) combined, please contact us prior to booking.

    Children aged 2 years or older can occupy their own seat. 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 😁)

    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 on cooler or windy days to keep your warm.

    Do you provide a wheelchair for disabled passengers?

    We partner with Fisher Lane Mobility in Melbourne, which provides wheelchair rental as well as delivery and pickup services from our hangar. Wheelchairs can only be carried in larger aircraft suitable for 4 or more passengers as they include a cargo hold. Please contact FLM to confirm availability of a suitable wheelchair for your planned date of travel.

      Breathtaking and unforgettable experience. I highly recommend Rotor One

      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...!

      Fantastic Ride out to a Winery

      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.
