Live life to the fullest! Combine the best of food and wine with a hot-air balloon sunrise flight! You leave Melbourne for your hot-air balloon flight, which is followed with sparkling wine and breakfast. Then its off to tour some of the finest wineries in the Yarra Valley. And all this in one day!
Make use of the complimentary pick up service from the Melbourne CBD or meet your pilot at the launch site for a safety briefing before joining in to help launch the balloon.
Drift gently over the Yarra Valley, looking down upon the land from the basket for unique, one in a lifetime views across the landscape. After your 60 minute flight, enjoy a full buffet breakfast complimented by a glass of sparkling wine.
But the day is far from over! You’ll be transported to Yering Station, Balgownie Estate, Yering Farm and Domaine Chandon where you will learn the finer points of wine tasting so that you can swirl, sniff and slurp your way through the day.
Sit down to a delicious lunch at Balgownie Estate while some of the staff share their favourite wines with you.
