Please note: this prize draw is now closed.

Embrace the hedonistic lifestyle with one of our Ultimate Winery Experiences that go beyond a wine tasting. From thrilling helicopter flights and exclusive vineyard tours to multi-course epicurean feasts and opulent glamping pavilions, you’ll surely be the envy of your friends with one of our upscale experiences that will take you beyond, behind, and even above the cellar door. 

Helicopter Winery Tour, Printhie Wines, Orange, NSW

Go behind the scenes of a working winery on this exclusive Helicopter Winery Tour. Start with a chauffeur-driven transfer from your hotel in Orange to Printhie Wines cellar door, where you’ll board your helicopter for private access to Printhie Winery. Discover the grapes’ journey from picking to fermenting then taste barrel/tank samples. Helicopter back to the Printhie private cellar to taste Printhie’s flagship wines before taking your priority seats at Printhie Dining for a three-course lunch with matching wines. For true decadence, upgrade to the five-course degustation lunch.

Top Tip: Take this tour from March to mid-April to see the winery in full swing during vintage!

Posh-As Day at Mona, Moorilla Estate, Hobart, TAS

The Posh-As Day at Mona is as good as it gets! Bypass the cheap seats on Mona’s fast ferry from Hobart and swan on up to the Posh Pit section where you’ll indulge in canapés, complimentary beverages, and a private deck on the ride to Mona. Tour the museum and grounds at your leisure before heading to Moorilla’s deluxe underground wine bunker for a comprehensive tasting of their Praxis, Muse, and Cloth Label ranges. Enjoy a seasonal, locally sourced lunch with matched wines in one of Mona’s restaurants, before further museum exploration (or on-site barhopping!), then take the late-afternoon ferry back to Hobart, once again in the Posh Pit, with more complimentary drinks, dessert canapés and relaxation.

Penfolds Platinum Experience, Penfolds Magill Estate, Adelaide Hills, SA

A truly sophisticated day awaits on the Penfolds Platinum Experience. Commence with a luxury transfer to Penfolds Magill Estate where you’ll venture beyond the cellar door as your walk in the footsteps of winemaking legends. See the original 1844 home of Penfolds founders Dr Christopher and Mary Penfold, then explore the vineyard and underground cellars on a private journey through the heart of the original winery. In a private tasting room, enjoy an exclusive selection of some of Penfolds’ most coveted wines, including one vintage of Grange, then head to Magill Estate Kitchen, for a three-course tasting menu and wine pairings. You’ll even get to take home a bottle of Grange!

The Ultimate Winery Escape, Sirromet Wines, Granite Belt, QLD

Make an entrance and hire your own helicopter* to Sirromet Wines’s private airstrip for their Ultimate Winery Escape. Spend two indulgent nights in a luxurious tented glamping pavilion nestled amongst the gum trees. Take a behind-the-scenes premium tour of Sirromet’s winery facilities followed by a tutored wine tasting of select premium wines. Enjoy a spectacular Eataly Discovery three-course Tuscan-inspired menu with matching premium wines at Sirromet’s Tuscan Terrace. Go wallaby spotting and take in the beautiful surrounds during your stay with a delicious picnic hamper for two, with everything you need to just sit, relax, and enjoy the moment.

*Helicopter flight not included in package cost.

  1. Posh as a day would be wonderful. Wine and a water transfer sounds great.

  2. Penfolds in South Australia would be my choice as my daughter lives in Victor Harbor a chance to see all the family again.
    It’s a lovely winery can recommend

  3. PENFOLDS! South Africa is my second home as I lived and worked there in the late eighties and early nineties. I think their wines are terrific and would fully enjoy the ultimate taste experience.

  4. The helicopter tour as it would be such a unique experience. Sharing a dreamy flight with my husband would be so romantic, providing electrifying views that you wouldn’t be able to see otherwise. An unforgettable view of the landmarks and skyline – sheer magic!

  5. Sirromet’s winery tutored wine tasting would be amazing as I would love to learn more. I did a winery tour on a family run vineyard in Canada that was great so be fantastic to see how different these wines are. Glamping sounds fun too.

  6. I can just imagine myself arriving in style by helicopter at Sirromet wines!

  7. Posh-As Day at Mona – mainly because my husband would love to go to Tasmania as he’s very keen on the plants and trees that grow there; the bar hopping and canapes sound pretty good too.

  8. Oh definitely the Helicopter Winery Tour!! There’s something very special about looking down from a helicopter and getting a real feel for the area. The rest just makes it perfect….
