This tour was Fantastic!! We had a great day. Fiona our driver and guide was excellent. Knowledgable and very friendly. Our group was very small so we were able to enjoy the wineries at our own pace without being rushed. The wineries were supurb and all the staff involved were very friendly and willing to answer all of our questions. Highly recommend for anyone not wanting to be part of a large cattle class tour group.
Had a great day on this tour. Plenty of opportunities for wine tasting. The cheese tasting in the trophy room at De Bortoli didn't go as planned (just a last minute bit of cheese at the bar) but that wasn't the tour operator's fault. It seems that De Bortoli had a few staff call in sick that day. Lunch at Domaine (with 4 half glasses of wine) was the highlight. I thoroughly recommend the tour. Our host was very informative.

This tour is fabulous - its small, its personal, not rushed and Fiona goes out of her way to make things easy for her group. Its also the little things - like having water in a cooler on the bus - that make this a really enjoyable trip.
Great Tour Guide, Wonderful Wineries and Produce Stores, Fantastic Wine, Wonderful Cheese, Great Lunch and Great Company. What more could you want from a food and wine Tour. My Friend and I enjoyed the Tour very much. Would recommend the tour to anyone who loves Wine and Food.
We had a fantastic experience from start to finish. The combination of a wine and food was very good. Personally i would find just wine tasting less enjoyable.
We had a lovely relaxing day sampling some beautiful wine and gorgeous cheese. I would certainly consider doing the trip again and highly recommend this tour.
Excellent value.. We spent the day with great company and a highly skilled and informative guide. The wineries offered excellent service and magnificent views. The food was great. All in all we had a great day..
Perfect size for this type of event. Had an amazing time. Everything ran smoothly and got to taste some amazing wines.
Great experience. The guide was brilliant. He was full of knowledge and a genuine passion for touring. I would definitely recommend this tour to family and friends.
Lunch was DELICIOUS!
Driver pick up and drop off was great. Wineries and tasting very informative and staff at wineries so helpful with info about Melbourne, where to dine and what to see. great day
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, everything was amazing! I have recommended it to all my family and friends!
thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the tour. There were seven of us with another two couples joining the tour and everyone had a great time. The scenery along the way was breathless and all winery visits were friendly and no pressure to buy. recommend it to anyone.
the guide was very informative and friendly. 5 star service and companionship

We had a great time sampling and learning all about the kind of wines that Yarra Valley is reknowned for. I will definitely recommend this tour to my family and friends. Thanks Steve our tour leader cum driver for taking such good care of our group! Kudos to the team at Epicurean Tours!

This was a fantastic tour! There were 11 of us total in the group, and our guide was both hospitable and very knowledgeable. He picked us up at our various hotels at the start of the tour and dropped us all off afterward, making the entire trip effortless. The highlight of the tour was definitely the first stop in the De Bortoli Winery's private tasting room. In that one stop alone we got to sample 13 excellent wines paired with several fantastic cheeses. But each of the other 4 stops featured either a truly standout wine or some extraordinary food. We saw a mob of wild kangaroos in the valley on the way to one of our stops, so the hostdriver pulled over to let us get a good look at them while simultaneously giving us background information on the animals. Awesome! Between the excellence of our guide, the camaraderie of the other guests, and the delicious wines and food, this was a fantastic way to explore and discover Melbourne's scenic wine country while sampling nearly 30 of the area's finest wines. I've been on wine tours before, but this was truly a first class experience. Highly recommended!

This tour was fantastic, Food was excellent. Small group, and we visited some of the finest wineries. Highly recommend this tour. Do not take Grayline or APT for this. you will be disappointed

The experience was great, and because we had little knowledge of wine or the history of the area, we learnt a lot. It was fun and down to earth.
