Helicopter Wine Tour to St Hubert's Estate in the Yarra Valley.

Overview - Wine Tour and Winery Lunch at Hubert Estate in the Yarra Valley

Hubert Estate, founded by Charles Hubert de Castella in 1862, is one the oldest wineries you will find in the Yarra Valley. St Hubert was a champion of the Yarra Valley wine renaissance in the 1960’s and helped position the region as one of the most popular wine destinations in the world. The Yarra Valley winery has a 100 year history of producing the best cool climate wines like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Roussanne. 

The recent design-led renovation of the property by Andy Ryan and Gerry Ryan, adds a beautiful modern touch to the 100 year old winery heritage at St Hubert’s Estate in the Yarra Valley. The winery now boasts a brand new restaurant named Quarters, a state-of-the-art cellar door, a wine store named ‘Notes’ and an art gallery that is filled with aboriginal art. 

Experience a 25 minute helicopter ride from Melbourne to Hubert Estate in the Yarra Valley. The scenic helicopter flight from Melbourne takes you over the green landscape of the Yarra Valley with a beautiful distant view of the Dandenong Ranges merged with the clouds. It’s a picturesque scene that can only be enjoyed from the comfort of a helicopter. As the helicopter arrives closer to the St Hubert's winery you will get a bird’s eye view of the acres of vineyards producing some of the best wine in the world for over a 100 years!

Winery Lunch Experience and Tour of St Hubert's

Enjoy a delicious winery lunch and pick the dishes from an Australian-European menu designed by Head Chef, Michael Smith. Think sizzling vegetables filled with flavour, woodfired pizza made in an Italian-made Marana pizza oven and pasta that is hand-made on site. A menu that the founder, Charles Hubert de Castella, would definitely approve of.

After enjoying an exquisite lunch at the Quarters restaurant, explore the cellar door for a wine tasting experience that includes The Stag Victoria Pinot Noir, the St Hubert’s Chardonnay and the St Huber’s Blanc de Noir.

Take a short-walk from the cellar door and you will find the Hubert's Art Gallery. Engage in a guided tour through the Art Gallery that is filled with aboriginal art and learn the stories behind the artwork of over 20 indigenous artists from around Australia, including Polly Ngale and Yannima Tommy Watson.

Immerse yourself in this unique helicopter and winery experience where you can enjoy the beautiful views of the Yarra Valley, the culinary excellence at St Hubert's and the finest wine in the Yarra Valley, produced by experienced local winemakers.

“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 and today continues to be lauded for its portfolio of cool climate wines which also include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Roussanne”

 -  Greg Jarratt (Winemaker at St Hubert’s Winery)

When should I arrive?

For a relaxed experience, please arrive 10 minutes before your booking begins.  

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 to another day/time or provide a full refund.

Google says it's going to rain. Should I reschedule?

We will make a "Fly" or "No Fly" decision on the day of your flight. If bad weather is present on the day, we'll call or SMS you at least 2 hours prior to your booking.

There's no need to contact us to reschedule based on Google or Apple's weather forecast. These forecasts often change on the day (especially in Melbourne!) and we monitor live weather data from the Bureau of Meteorology every day before we fly. 

We'll do everything we can to get you flying on the day, wherever it is safe to do so

Can I use my camera or phone during flight?

Jason T. (Victoria, Australia)
Fantastic helicopter winery tour to Yarra Valley!

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!!

Amazing experience...! Rotor One took care of every detail, I highly recommend Rotor One👌

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..!
