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.
1. Wine Tour 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 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.
2. Winery Lunch at Quarters Restaurant
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 coined 'Hungry Hungry Hubert' and include a 1 litre carafe of wine just for good measure.
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.
3. Guided Tour of Hubert Estate's 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.
Your day ends with return helicopter charter flights where you'll soak in dreamy afternoon views of the best wine region in Victoria as you're whisked back to Melbourne in your private helicopter.

From the process of booking to landing and final farewell. It was the most amazing everlasting experience. All made possible by our personable professional pilot and operator Ed. Rotor One I highly recommend. Thank you for a incredible day we loved every moment!
What a spectacular afternoon in the Yarra Valley with Rotor One!! We flew by helicopter to the Yarra Valley to Hubert’s Estate Winery and it was fantastic. The food at Hubert’s Estate was delicious (definitely try the Octopus Skewers!) and the helicopter ride was very comfortable with amazing views. Can definitely recommend Rotor One if you’re considering a helicopter wine tour and can’t wait to fly with them again!!
We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary is the best way possible and we even took our son up who loved it. The scenic flight was incredible and Ed was so supportive considering my wife was a little nervous. The winery was fantastic and had a very special lunch paired with incredible wine. I highly recommend Rotor One. Thanks for everything..!
Our helicopter ride was truly special and will be remembered for a very long time. The experience was incredible. The views were amazing and the pilot was very friendly, informative with his tour information and mindful of the passengers onboard. A great experience and thoroughly enjoyed.
Omg!! my first ever helicopter ride and it was the best I could ask. Ed made me feel so comfortable pre flight and on flight especially I have a fear of heights. We live streamed the ride too and it was so cool how my camera was an apple TV for the trip.
Ed has so much knowledge and passion and answered all my silly questions from clouds to turbulence to live streaming. Definitely will be back for another trip. Highly recommend Rotor One as the best Heli ride.
The best part was definitely take-off from winery and landing at the winery in royal style.
Ed knows the best angles for your Instagram.
What a surreal experience!! Flying over beautiful Melbourne into the serene Yarra Valley for an incredible lunch at Hubert's Estate winery! This was our very first helicopter ride and Ed provided us with not only a very smooth journey but also shared his inspiring passion for flying by teaching us some of the physics behind flying, definitely not as easy as he makes it look! I cannot recommend Rotor One highly enough:)
