I had the pleasure of going on an all-day wine tasting trip with Vinetrekker earlier this month. We were staying in Melbourne and wanted to do something a little less ordinary, so we chose to go to the Macedon Ranges, a cold-climate wine growing region characterized by a high granite content in the soil. We were not disappointed! Stephen, our... More

Thanks Leah for posting your review and delighted to hear how successful your recent tour to the Macedon Ranges was. It certainly flies under the radar in terms of profile but the quality of the wine is very good and the commitment to quality is evident. The lack of crowds and the time spent with winemakers also hold great appeal.... More

Our experiences were fantastic. It was interesting to see surroundings outside Melbourne and see the vineyards and also the pride and the passion of the producers. The results show in the quality of today´s Australians wines. Our tour included exceptionally delicious lunch at Yering Station restaurant. Special treat was to visit to Healesville Sanctuary and see many of the Australian... More

We had a fantastic tour of the Yarra Valley. The day was well run from our pick up at 9am to our drop off at 7pm and more importantly we did not feel rushed at any stage. Paul's local knowledge really added to the whole experience with him telling us about the wines, the history, the countryside and introducing us... More

Thanks Julie for your review and delighted you loved your recent Yarra Valley Food and Wine Daytour. It's a well balanced day and on occasions we run over time and we're never wanting guests to feel that they're being rushed and herded from one vineyard to the next. If we get home a little later than expected because guests are... More

My intention was to create a fantastic day for my close girlfriend's hens celebrations. I was after a wine tour that needed to sit within a time frame (10-4:30pm), cater for 15 ladies and would include wine tastings with nibbles at 3 wineries and an a la carte lunch. My first point of contact with Vinetrekker Wine Tours was Paul,... More

We had a realy entertaining and professionally run wine tour of the Yarra Valley where Stephen was an excellent host! This was also very good value where we learnt a lot about the wines of the area. It was lovely to visit the De Borteli vineyard in particular as we have sampled their wines at home in the UK. We... More

Having recently done a few winery tours in Spain and Italy we decide rather than driving ourselves as we had done once before many yrs ago in the Yarra Valley we would take a tour. We were picked up on time from our inner city hotel and driven to the Valley with informative commentary along the way. The wineries we... More
