Get on the doggy-day-trip vineyard and foodie bus (really)

Hanging Out at Green Olive Vineyard
Sick of having to leave your dog at home when you want to go out and do something sociable and 'grown up'? Gourmet Paws have very thoughtfully come up with the answer: they are offering very grown up foodie/vineyard tours of the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsula which accommodate the needs of the adults as well as their four legged friends.

Diesel at the Wineyard .... Life's good

Kerry and her dog Diesel will meet you and up to around 20 other dogs and their humans, at Sandridge Beach in Port Melbourne (which has all day parking and is off-leash so your dog can run their legs off first), before boarding a bus for your destination. A typical day trip to the Mornington Peninsula will include off-leash beaches and walks, morning tea at a local produce farm, visits/walks to 3 vineyards (such as Green Olive at Red Hill and Willow Creek) for tapas and wine-tasting, gourmet tapas and wine for lunch - with a dog carer to look after the dogs so you can enjoy your lunch in peace. Dog treats and water are also provided for the dogs (Gourmet Paw Prints have their own homemade, healthy doggy treats bakery, so the foodie experience extends to your dog as well!)

A foodie extravaganza for dogs as well

Prices for the day are $165 pp and dog (or $135 per dogless human) - that's about the same price as day food and wine tours of the peninsula without your pooch, so great value. $5 of your fee will be donated to Dogs for Kids with Disabilities. Nice touch. Places are limited, so it's recommended that you book early to avoid being disappointed. The next tours are on Sunday 27th October and Sunday 17th November - but check their website for future dates if these don't suit.
