Enjoy a scenic helicopter flight from Hobart to Frogmore Creek Winery for a Tasmanian wine tasting and optional lunch. Take in amazing views of Hobart landmarks like Mt Wellington, the River Derwent and the Tasman Bridge, and then soar over the Coal River Valley and land right in front of the winery. After sampling Frogmore Creek's cool-climate wines, you have the option to stay for a while longer for lunch at the winery before returning to Hobart. Lunch includes fresh local produce and other seasonal fare, accompanied by a bottle of wine; choose this upgrade option when booking.
Begin your scenic helicopter tour with pickup from your Hobart hotel and transfer to the airport.
Meet your pilot and receive a safety briefing, and then step on board the helicopter and take off over Hobart, admiring views of the Tasman Bridge, Mt Wellington, the harbor and more. Your pilot provides informative commentary about the landmarks below and tells you stories about the region as you fly to Coal River Valley, where Frogmore Creek Winery is located.
Touch down like a VIP in front of the winery, and then head into the tasting room (aka cellar door) for a tasting of Frogmore Creek’s cool-climate wines. Varietals you might try include pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, rosé, merlot and pinot noir. While you enjoy your samples, listen as the knowledgeable staff shares interesting facts about the wines, the vineyards, the winemaking process and the wine industry in Tasmania.
Afterward, if you selected the lunch option when booking, head to The Deck, Frogmore Creek's casual dining area. Soak in views of the vineyards and valley as you enjoy delicious dishes from the ‘Let It Roll’ menu, which includes seasonal produce, meat and vegetable plates accompanied by a bottle of wine.
Whether you stay for lunch or not, whenever you want to return to Hobart, you’ll be transferred by car back to your hotel. You can linger as long as you like at the winery and simply call for pickup when you are ready to leave.
