Overview
Located an hour from Melbourne and known internationally as a quality producer of chardonnay, pinot noir and sparkling wines, the Yarra Valley enjoys the highest profile of any Victorian wine region. With this small group tour, take the scenic route from Melbourne that travels through bushland, vineyards and farmland. The 5 vineyards that are visited are a mix of small, medium and large producers who provide a great overview of what the Valley does best. Enhancing the day is an excellent a la carte lunch at Yering Station, some wonderful cheeses at De Bortoli and a glass of sparkling at Domaine Chandon.
Highlights
  • Escape the city on a stress-free day trip to Yarra Valley from Melbourne
  • Sample wines from world-famous wineries and tour production facilities
  • Enjoy a gourmet à la carte lunch at Yering Station Winery’s restaurant
  • Convenient Melbourne hotel pickup and drop-off are included
What to Expect
Your culinary journey begins at your Melbourne hotel, where you’ll board an air-conditioned bus destined for the Yarra Valley wine region—one of the most famous in Australia. The first stop of the day is Coldstream Hills Winery, established by wine mogul James Halliday. Following a tasting session, you’ll continue to Medhurst Vineyard to sample elegant table wines and enjoy sparkling French-style offerings at Domaine Chandon. Then it’s on to Yering Station Winery for an à la carte lunch in their wine-bar restaurant, which serves gourmet cuisine and overlooks rolling vineyards doused in sunshine. After lunch, take a tour of the Yering Station and Italian De Bortoli wineries before returning to Melbourne.

I was picked up at 8:30; there’s no way you can get through all the hoops at the airport and make it to your pickup downtown in time...my humble opinion!
