A fantastic day out in the Yarra Valley with Epicurean Tours. Our host Bill was very knowledgeable and had answers to every question, without overwhelming us with unwanted information. We were given a choice of a number of wineries / breweries in the afternoon which was an unexpected benefit of this small tour group. The cheese matching and lunch were... More

This was an excellent trip from beginning to end. During the day our small group visited a host of different vineyards. Particularly pleasant was the time spent at some of the smaller venues. This provided a much more intimate tasting. Our driver Bill was superb. He was highly knowledgable and shared a great deal of information about the wine industry... More

Fantastic tour for two Marlbarians from New Zealand. Thank you so much for hosting a great tour and being patient with us for the last part of the day! I would recommend this to anyone wanting a fun tour around the Yarra Valley. Had to change the planned lunch to Tokar restaurant but it was brilliant regardless!

This is actually the second time I have been on an Epicurean Food and Wine Tour, and I have to say as much as I enjoyed the first tour, the second one was a million times better!! Visiting Tokar Estate for lunch instead of Chandon was a genius move. Better wine, better food, better scenery! Graeme Miller at Dixon Estate... More

He even made a photo stop so I could capture some kangaroos. 5 wineries with ample samples and a great lunch at Tokar. If you're in the area, this tour is a... More
