Helicopter Ride to Mitchelton Winery - Nagambie's Best Cellar Door & Winery Lunch

Overview - Winery Lunch at Mitchelton Winery in Nagambie

"Look for the tower. We'll open the bottle."  Mitchelton Winery

The iconic Mitchelton Winery in Nagambie with its striking 55 meter tower, Mitchelton has become the must-visit destination for wine, food, art and hospitality and is a short 35 minute helicopter ride from Melbourne.

Mitchelton Winery is well known for producing award-winning Shiraz, Riesling and Rhone blend wines but is also home to a 5-star cellar door experience, winery lunch at The Muse Restaurant, unique Airstream Hotel accommodation, relaxing Day Spa and the Mitchelton Gallery of Aboriginal Art. Your helicopter ride from Melbourne lands right next to the Mitchelton's iconic Ashton Tower and just steps away from the Cellar Door and The Muse Restaurant.

Rotor One - Mitchelton Winery

Enjoy a guided wine tasting at Mitchelton's 5 star cellar door walking you through Mitchelton Estate's winemaking philosophy and 50-year winery history. Your winery lunch will then be served at The Muse Restaurant, overlooking the banks of the Goulburn River. The Muse Restaurant sources fresh produce from the Nagambie Lakes region to serve a modern farmhouse cuisine menu that is matched to wines from Mitchelton's own award-winning winery.

After a deliciously wholesome winery lunch, take a moment to explore Mitchelton's own Gallery of Aboriginal Art. An onsite collection of indigenous Australian art celebrating Australia's first people and including the famous Message Stick Vehicle — a Land Rover Ambulance used in the Vietnam War now transformed into a symbol of Unity and Peace endorsed by Nelson Mandela.

🍇 Looking for a different winery flight by helicopter in Melbourne?

While Mitchelton Wines is arguably one of the best helicopter wine tours in Melbourne, the owners recently opened a brand new winery restaurant and cellar door in the Yarra Valley. Take a helicopter to Yarra Valley to visit Hubert Estate for an exclusive wine tour with St Huberts The Stag wines, a winery lunch at Quarters Restaurant and a guided tour of Hubert Estate's additional Aboriginal Art Gallery.

If you're looking to travel to a different wine region in Victoria, see our winery lunch packages to the Yarra Valley and Bellarine Peninsula by helicopter.
