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 Domain Chandon, 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 stops at the White Rabbit Brewery to sample beer and ciders and the new Yarra Valley Chocolate company. The tour will be conducted by one of our team of experienced drivers/guides; Alex, Anthony, Ben, Christian, Geoff 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, beer, cider, cheese, chocolates and a great day out!

“Fabulous day out, not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

My best friend and I were looking for a way to take in some of the sights and tastes of the Yarra and this tour was perfect. The day was nicely paced, visiting 4 fantastic vineyards for tastings, including small family-run operations through to the Domaine Chandon Winery as well as the White Rabbit Brewery and the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie. The option to be picked up in either Melbourne CBD or the Yarra was great and was a key deciding factor for us. Yering Station winery was a great place to start, they were very informative about the wines of the region and a lot of what they had to say helped us in our later tastings. The relaxed atmosphere of our tour also meant there was no pressure to buy which can sometimes be the case on tours. Lunch at Rochford was delicious and enjoyed by all. The best was saved for last with a trip to Yileena Park Winery, a smaller scale operation producing exquisite drops. The highlight of the tour was our guide, Christian, who's clearly put a lot of thought into our day. The wineries were well chosen, the day was perfectly timed and Christian had great relationships with all the vendors making for a very special experience at each tasting.

“A 'Must Do' When Visiting Melbourne!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

A fantastic way to spend a day! Not only do you get to visit 4 lovely wineries, but also a local dairy to sample some delicious cheeses, local brewery Little Creatures, and a chocolate factory. All in the scenic Yarra Valley, the tour is relaxing and fun break from the crowds of Melbourne. Christian was a fantastic tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the wineries we visited; he really went above and beyond to ensure that we had an enjoyable experience. One of the best things I've done in the Melbourne area, highly recommend this tour!

“Fantastic wine tasting tour!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

My sister and I did this winery tour together and it was a wonderful experience. We met a great group of people and our guide Christian was just lovely. The tour is relaxed and well paced. You get to visit several beautiful wineries and some other fun spots such as a chocolatier and a cute shop where they make cheese. And lunch was absolutely delicious. This is an amazing tour at a great value. This was one of our favorite experiences in Melbourne. Do it; you won't regret it!
