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 and just 25 minutes by helicopter from Melbourne.
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. Your helicopter wine tour from Melbourne lands directly in front of the Stones of the Yarra Valley restaurant meaning the entrance to your winery lunch will be nothing short of spectacular.
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 at Meletos winery and a few steps away from the rear entrance to Meletos restaurant.
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.

This helicopter ride was an amazing experience, our helicopter pilot Ed (Edward) was very nice and accommodating, an unforgettable experience, would definitely ride with them again
My wife had a wish to celebrate he 50th birthday on a food and wine tour in Provence France, but Covid put a stop to that. I needed to find something that would be equally memorable and the trip out to Levantine delivered in every way.
I can highly recommend this for that really special occasion
We had an incredible time and made our great family memories on our Rotor One chopper ride. The whole team was great, friendly and made us feel welcome. Ed was a genius pilot. Ed also took us to the camo helicopter for my boys to learn little more. He made our experience great and safe. Thanks for an unforgettable morning. My boys and I didn’t wanted to land, and we can’t wait to go back up again soon. I highly recommend this type of activities for any family looking for something another level during school holidays. Peace ✌🏽
Booked a helicopter ride for my husband's birthday to leventine Hill winery for lunch and it was perfect. The staff went above and beyond, including the pilot. We will be using Rotor One again very very soon!!
