Nicci was fun, informative and I enjoyed working with her to create the perfect birthday out for my man. The whole day was amazing and we especially loved the barrel tasting at Domnique Portet and chatting to Mac Forbes at Graceburn wine room. I would do this all over again in a heartbeat and strongly recommend you working with Epicurian... More

Had a lovely day tour with Bill and some wonderful folk from Mackay. Brilliant itinerary, delicious food, great atmosphere, small intimate tour meeting some fantastic winemakers/owners and knowledgeable cellar door staff. Would highly recommend this tour to all, whether you are wine savvy or just have an interest!

Get picked up from your Melbourne hotel in the morning and dropped back to your door late afternoon. Each tour is personal with the guide getting to know you along the way and sharing his knowledge of the Yarra Valley as the day goes by. The bus seated no more than 10 - 12 people, which is a great number... More

This review will echo what others have said. Bill picked us up on time and we saw the vineyards which were on the itinerary. He is a knowledgeable guide since he has been doing this for 15 years. The Yarra Valley is beautiful and easily reminds one of Napa and other wine growing areas. We had a delightful tour group... More

We are happy that our guide Bill excused himself from the tastings. It can be difficult to find another driver from the group :) He does like to let the cellar door staff and the the wine do the talking at wineries we visit. We are happy you had a great day.

We have done a few wine tours and have some pretty firm ideas about what distinguishes a good tour from an excellent one: a knowledgeable guide who communicates well, a small congenial group and welcoming vineyards. This tour had it all and then some. Bill was wonderful, attentive but not over-bearing. Knowledgeable but let the vineyard staff make their own... More

We also love small group touring (10 max) and welcoming vineyards make us pretty happy too :) Anzac Day and all public holidays in the Yarra Valley can get busy so we are thrilled that our timing worked and you had such a good experience at each. Happy travels and see you next time you are visiting Melbourne. More
