Enjoy a mini-photoshoot in front of the helicopter with the Melbourne Skyline in the background. After taking a few photos, you'll board the helicopter for your special scenic flight around Melbourne CBD to the Yarra Valley.

This unique flight path will take you around popular landmarks in and around Melbourne City. You'll cruise over the Melbourne Star, Albert Park, Royal Botanic Gardens and the MCG before flying towards Mt Dandenong and the lush green landscapes of the Yarra Valley. 

Your Pilot will land on the private helipad nestled amongst the vines at Hubert Estate. You'll be received by the Hubert Estate team and escorted to your first stop, St Hubert's Cellar Door, for your wine-tasting experience. 

1. Wine Tasting Experience at St Hubert's Cellar Door

The St Hubert's Cellar Door is a brand new, architectural masterpiece that emerges from a hillside on the property. It's one of the most recognisable pieces of architecture in the Yarra Valley.

Enjoy a luxurious wine-tasting experience of 8 wines by the glass across a variety of St Hubert's blends. This includes 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 receive a light cheese platter to go with your wine-tasting experience.

2. Gourmet Lunch at Quarters Restaurant

When your wine tasting has come to a close, your reserved table at Quarters restaurant will become available for you. You'll take a short stroll and take a seat to enjoy a delicious, gourmet winery lunch.

Your winery lunch experience will include dishes from the 'Hungry Hungry Hubert' tasting menu. The Australian-European tasting menu designed by Head Chef also includes a 1-litre carafe of wine 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. Tour of Hubert Estate's Art Gallery

Following your gourmet lunch, take a short walk to explore Hubert Estate's very own art gallery. You will learn the stories behind the artwork from over 20 indigenous artists around Australia. This includes popular Australian artists such as Polly Ngale and Yannima Tommy Watson.
