My husband and I had an amazing day doing the Yarra Valley Wine tour.

Our driver, Tony, had great knowledge about the wineries and about the local areas we drove through. He made the drive casual and fun and was a large reason the ride was so enjoyable.

The wineries themselves were great. The haul we came home with can testify to that fact 🤣

The first 3 wineries we visited were friendly and welcoming and we were able to sit and enjoy the beautiful grounds.

Lunch at the Balgownie estate was amazing and delicious.

My only fault was we found the last winery a bit disappointing. Their wine was absolutely amazing, don’t get me wrong. They had my favourite wine of the day, but they were much less accommodating than the first 3 wineries. Their tasting area was cramped and we felt like we were a bit of a hassle for them doing the tasting. Maybe we were lol.

Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys wine.

My wife and I reside in Sydney and decided to book a wine tour of the Yarra Valley rather than hire a car from Melbourne and do your own thing. Great decision. The tour was excellent value for money . The Tour Guide (Tony) did a great job, the wine tastings were most generous and the lunch at Balgownie Estate was first class. All participants on the tour appeared to have a really good time. Participants were from Sydney , Brisbane , Singapore, Hong Kong and Denmark.
Well done Australian Wine Tour Company.

We were in Melbourne for the Australian Open but being winos we definitely had to make time to visit Yarra Valley wineries. We prefer red wines to white wines and after researching the wineries on this tour it seemed like our best bet to enjoy some red wines. Pretty much everything about this tour went flawlessly. The pick up was easy and on time. The tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable not just about the wines but about the area as a whole. And he definitely had a passion for wine. Everyone at the wineries were cheerful, informative and helpful. Lunch was excellent. We did not get cheated on the number of wines poured at any of the wineries, which was nice since I'm normally the designated driver and have to spit or pour out tastings. While I did not personally find any of the wines exceptional (more than a few other people on our tour purchased bottles) I am not the least bit bothered by that fact. After the tour we even had dinner with some new friends! I would highly recommend this tour.

Overall, the tour was average. The day felt slightly rushed. Lunch lasted only 45 minutes which also included a wine tasting. We stopped at the Balgownie Estate Winery for lunch but it was unfortunate to learn that their restaurant had burnt down in October 2020. Because of this, we had to have lunch in a corporate tent, which wasn’t ideal as we couldn’t enjoy the nice views/sunshine. We felt that the tour could’ve been changed to stop at a different winery for lunch. Having said this, the bus driver was personable and the wine tour company was very responsive with our requests and accomodating of our large group.

Can’t recommend this tour highly enough; the tastings were well organised and hosted by very knowledgable staff and our guide Chris kept us all entertained (both at the wineries and on the bus between stops) with a perfect balance of local and industry knowledge, humour and stimulating wine chat. Lunch was also delicious. Overall great value for money and left our group of four considering returning to the exact same tour again in future! Thanks Chris and Aussie Wine Tour Co!

We spent a day visiting 4 vineyards in the yarra region, John was our driver and spoke very knowledgeably about the region, the vineyards, the history and of course the wines. That being said he was fun and had plenty of amusing stories to tell. We tasted a high variety of wine. Our favourite winery was Domaine Chandon which was a Show stopper and I could have spend a few more hours there in such a lovely setting. The tour highlighted that australians are making great wine and have great hospitality. I will bring my husband back to do this tour again.

Our guide Nick was extremely knowledgeable on the yarra valley area and wineries and local produce on offer. The bus was a nice sized 24 seater comfortable for the one hours journey from Melbourne city. Our tour included four wineries with lunch included at the Balgownie Estate Winery the meal was excellent quality and a wonderful selection on offer. Pick up and drop off points were exactly as per the tour information all very well organized. This is a must do while visiting Melbourne you will enjoy a fabulous day out.

Picked up, bang on time at 9.00am by driver Tony, who was fantastic with his knowledge and humour. Had visitors from UK, USA, Ireland, Japan, Canada, and New Zealand and everyone got on very well. Visited 4 great wineries, Yerling Farm, Balgownie Estate, Chandon, and Helen & Joey's. Every winery was superb and tastings were included in the price, along with a delicious lunch at the Balgownie Estate. A great day out !

Enjoyed a full day Yarra Valley wine tour via Chill-Out Wine tours. We were collected on time by our driver for the day Ivan. Ivan’s knowledge of wine & the area we are in was excellent & the winery’s we visited were all fantastic.
Lunch was at “Soumah” and included in the price, very enjoyable. I would recommend Chill-Out Wine Tours for anyone looking to experience the Yarra Valley wine region. A great day out.
