The Yarra Valley experience
Duration: 8-9 Hours
Experience the first wine region in Victoria, only one-hour from Melbourne, the Yarra Valley is an ideal destination for a day trip. With a picturesque backdrop of the Yarra Ranges as well as renowned restaurants through the area, wine and food lovers alike will revel in everything the Yarra Valley has to offer with our local passionate guides who will introduce you to the locals, including wine makers, distillers, brewers and local farmers. With over 80 wineries, breweries and distilleries in the region making Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon no two tours will be the same with our guides customising each tour for our guests. Delight in an exclusive behind the scenes barrel room tasting with carefully matched produce, enjoy lunch at one of our favourite premium vineyard restaurants or boutique cafes, followed by more time exploring the region; meeting local characters and sampling wine from boutique wineries. Avoiding the crowds of the larger wineries, the tour will be tailored to suit your tastes.
