Owner description: Yarra Valley Wine Tasting Tours specialises in small personal wine tours from Melbourne to Victoria's Yarra Valley. We operate a daily wine tour on board of our luxury Mercedes Benz vehicles, maximum 14 or 16 people, where our passengers will enjoy the best of the Yarra Valley. The main highlights of the tour include visits and wine tastings at 4 top Yarra wineries, including Domaine Chandon for a flute of sparkling/champagne, a restaurant lunch with a glass of wine with lunch, a visit to the quaint Yarra Valley Dairy to sample their handmade cheeses as well as a chocolate tasting at the Yarra Valley chocolaterie. The tour will be conducted by one of our team of experienced drivers/guides; Alex, Ben, Christian, Geoff, Jodie, John or Sasha - all of whom have earned many favourable reviews from other Trip Advisor members. This tour is a great way to experience the best of the Yarra. Join us for wine, champagne, cheese, chocolates and a great day out!

What a top day out. Our fantastic, knowledgeable and friendly guide, Christian explained our packed but relaxing itinerary. I would recommend this trip to anyone who would like to appreciate wine and how to get the best out of tasting it. The small group was just right to chat and engage with. Some very funny stories were told too, including a discerning head kangaroo who chose a particular grape variety over others and brought his gang of roos and wiped out half the crop over night. Not funny, but funny if you get me.
The owners and workers at all the vineyards/wineries, knew their craft so well, and you could totally appreciate how much they loved doing what they do - they all seemed genuinely pleased to discuss their wines.

The tour has a good mix of attractions - wines, beers, chocolates and cheesecake. What's not to like about that? Sash is a very pleasant, knowledgeable and engaging guide. It is a great way to spend a day outside of the city and I will recommend it to anyone visiting Melbourne.

I was in town for a coffee tasting competition and chose this tour for my day-off. A day well spent! Christian led a fantastic and knowledgable tour of the region featuring some incredible wineries and attractions. Would recommend it to anybody vacationing in Melbourne!

It was our wedding anniversary and we couldn't have had a better time. The wine tour with YVWTT was extremely well planned providing a mix of everything to make our day really special. Gary was a great guide and he did an excellent job in managing the whole group and making sure we get the best of every place we visited. Starting from Domaine Chandon, the kohinoor of the valley to little hidden gems, this tour made us taste some of the best wines in the valley, mixing it up with short detours to a cheese dairy, chocolate factory and an ale brewery. Highly recommended for anyone planning a trip to the Yarra Valley!

Our small family group rode with Christian, who covered the history of the area and prepared us in advance of each stop. The tasting was very educational, providing us with a wide range of choices and helped us each to define our own palate. The non wine stops were also a delight. The products offered were novel, top quality and finely selected. Each proprietor added to our knowledge and the products enriched our experience.
The luncheon was much more than we had expected, the quantity and quality of the food was a delight.With 7 of us in our family group,we sampled a fair selection of the set menu and all enjoyed their choices.
We purchased from each of the proprietors, not always a large purchase but each of us brought home gifts that were chosen for taste, presentation and the delight in our experience.
The Yarra Valley Wine Tour Company were a delight to deal with from beginning to end and I highly recommend both the Company and the Tour.
