Few wineries can boast their own sculpture park, let alone one with panoramic views across Western Port Bay and Philip Island. Pt. Leo Estate is the crown jewel of the southernmost Mornington Peninsula, and, when coupled with a guided wine tasting and a meal at one of the estate’s two critically acclaimed restaurants, the experience becomes an unforgettable one – particularly with the recent launch of the estate’s new wine, dine and art package, A Taste of the Peninsula, in partnership with RACV Cape Schanck Resort. You can indulge in the region’s finest luxury offerings with overnight accommodation, return transfers to Pt. Leo Estate, wine tasting and a tour of the sculpture park, culminating in a five-course dinner with matched wines at Laura. If you’re short on time, the Wine, Dine & Art Experiences include return luxury transfers from your selected Melbourne location, for a day of gourmet adventures.
