Yarra Valley Wine Tours

By Viator, September 2014

5 71 Reviews | Add your review

As one of Victoria's premier wine regions, mention the Yarra Valley to a local and you'll hear a daydreamy sigh as they envisage the emerald glow of the valleys and the straw-gold glow of the wine.

A visit to the Yarra Valley makes for an ideal day trip from Melbourne. It's 50km east of Melbourne, an easy hour's drive from the CBD that roughly echoes the route of the Yarra River. While the landscape of undulating hills and eucalyptus forests is a major drawcard for visitors to the area, not to mention the day spas, gourmet produce and the romantic getaway factor, it's the wine scene that lures them most.

The Yarra Valley is a cool climate region but because the landscape includes high peaks and valley floors, it's able to produce a number of varieties. There are 90 vineyards in the Yarra Valley, and around 35 wineries so wondering which one to start out at can be a dizzying task. A Yarra Valley Wine and Winery Tour will take in three of the big-hitters – Rochford, Yering Station and Domaine Chandon. Your guide will tell you what to look out for as you go tasting at the cellar doors (Domaine Chandon's sparklings are spectacular). Stop for lunch at Rochford Winery before an afternoon of tastings at rustic  Yering Station. If you want something more personalized, you can always take a private tour of the wineries – just you, a luxury vehicle and as many or as few wineries as you'd like to try.

If you've got a real gourmet leaning, a Yarra Valley Food and Wine Small Group Tour takes in not only the wines of the area but the fruit and cheese too, with a private cheese tasting at the 100-year-old Yarra Valley Dairy. But for something truly glorious and completely memorable, take a Sunrise Balloon Flight and Winery Tour over the valley and wineries, culminating in a gourmet champagne breakfast.  So, are we ready to let the good times roll?!
