If there are three things we love, it’s Melbourne, Wine & Wellness. So, we thought it was only fair if we’d help you discover the Melbourne Wine and Wellness movement – a fusion of sensory indulgence and mindful relaxation. It’s not just about sipping a glass of fine wine. It’s about the experience that comes with it, paired with wellness activities that ground you in the present. In this city of hidden gems, we’ve uncovered five spots where the love for wine-tasting bliss meets the quest for inner peace. 

If you don’t have time to venture to the vineyards of the Yarra Valley or escape to a yoga retreat in the Otway Ranges, these urban nooks offer the perfect blend of relaxation and indulgence. Our top 5 pick of Melbourne wine & wellness experiences embody the essence of what makes yoga and wine retreats an exceptional pairing.

We believe mindfully sipping wine in moderation, and allowing yourself your favourite foods, aligns with a well-balanced lifestyle. Savouring life’s greatest pleasures is just as important as exercise and ‘eating your greens’!

Therefore, get ready to navigate through Melbourne’s best offerings that promise both a pour of relaxation and a taste of invigoration.

2. EMBRACE YOUR INNER WINEMAKER WITH NOISY RITUAL

Winemaking is more than a craft. It’s a celebration of patience, a journey through transformation, and a testament to the generosity of nature.

Creating wines allows you to enter a world where delicate scents and tastes come to life. When you make something with your own hands (and feet), it does more than please the senses. It’s nourishment for your soul! We believe embracing the winemaking process is a toast to self-care and joy, and you can experience all this in the heart of Melbourne.

3. WELLNESS WITH A PINCH OF SALT: PIZZA MASTERCLASS IN MELBOURNE

There is no doubt that Melbourne has a vibrant and global food & restaurant scene, which brings us to the third captivating experience: a pizza making masterclass. To be taken with a grain of salt (pun intended), because pizza and wellness don’t often go hand-in-hand, these classes are offered at Pizza E Gnocchi in South Yarra.

Whilst you engage in the time-honoured traditions of this Italian pizza craft, you will soon notice any worries melt away. Baking by hand can be a great stress reliever, as all the ‘kneading, pushing and folding’ becomes quite meditative. Once you’ve created your masterpizza, discover the fun of pairing your Italian dish with the perfect wine.

Address: Pizza E Gnocchi, 373 Malvern Road, South Yarra, VIC 3141

4. LANEWAY MASTERPIECES: UNWIND WITH PINOT & PICASSO

Stroll through Melbourne’s enigmatic laneways, where street art splashes colour around every corner, cafes buzz with life, and the city’s pulse whispers in the background. Now, Instead of just viewing art, you’re invited to create it with a paintbrush in one hand and a glass of wine in the other.

At Pinot & Picasso, you can experience an inner city sanctuary where stress dissolves with each brushstroke and sip. Their philosophy is simple: Everyone has an inner artist, and that beauty lies in the act of creation, not just the final piece. We thoroughly believe painting – and any art & craft hobby – is extremely relaxing and beneficial for your wellbeing.

Paint your stress away

Whether you’re a beginner or an art enthusiast, you’ll be guided through various scenes to paint, from tranquil landscapes to abstract musings, all while embracing the city’s renowned creative spirit. It is an immersive escape where you can experience Melbourne artistic heartbeat for yourself, one canvas at a time. You’ll also leave with a personal keepsake that’s as much about the memory of creation as it is about the image itself.

Address: Pinot and Picasso Melbourne CBD, 2 Guests Ln, Melbourne VIC 3000
