We had a wonderful experience with Stephen in the Yarra Valley. Much different than the typical huge bus tour. A great variety of wineries, from small and quaint to larger operations, pinot and Chardonnay to sparkling and Shiraz. The combination really showcased what the Yarra Valley has to offer. We went to five wineries in all. The lunch at Yering... More

Excellent communication with the Paul, the owner, from the time I enquired about booking a private tour to the day of the tour. We had a wonderful driver and tour guide, Bruce, who brought us to our listed destinations, knew the staff and owners, and was very patient and professional as we tested many different wines.

We had a great day with Stephen. We went to 5 different and distinct vineyards - each with their own special ambience and great wine. Stephen was an exceptional guide, great to chat with and very knowledgeable! Recommend for all!

Booked this tour through a very helpful staff member at the Melbourne Visitor's Centre. We were picked up from our hotel by Paul who then took us on a winery tour of the Mornington Penisular. As it was a small bus with only 6 of us on board we were able to visit some of the smaller wineries and speak... More

Thanks Jean for taking the time to review your recent Mornington Peninsula Food and Wine Daytour. It was a pleasure meeting you and thanks for the spirit you bought to the day. Not being as crowded or commercialised as the Yarra Valley, there are terrific opportunities to engage with the winemakers and/or owners. Hope to see you back this way... More

What a fantastic wine tour of Yarra Valley organized by the Vine Trekker team. The day itself was well planned with five wineries on the itinerary with lunch included and clearly a lot of thought went into choosing the vineyards we visited which varied in size and grape varieties. Vine Trekker clearly have good relationships with all the wineries on... More

This tour may be slightly more expensive than other tour companies but I assure you it is worthwhile. Excellent overview of the Yarra Valley wineries, visiting the famous houses including Yering Station, Domain Chandon and De Bortoli - but also visiting the smaller Coldstream Hills and Medhurst. I love Australian wines and Yarra Valley Chardonnays are my favourite in terms... More

Thanks cowardjai for reviewing your Yarra Valley Food and Wine Daytour and thrilled to hear it was such a successful day. The quality of chardonnay is among some of the best in Australia, especially the reserve releases.
