What You Can Expect

Yarra Valley Wine and Winery Tour from Melbourne

Domaine Chandon, Yarra Valley

Your day trip starts with pickup in Melbourne for the approximate 1-hour drive northeast of the city to the Yarra Valley. Throughout your tour, your knowledgeable wine guide provides entertaining commentary and information about the Yarra Valley wine region and the varietals produced here.

Make your first stop at Yering Farm, where you’ll enjoy your tasting in the cellar door (tasting room) converted from an old hay shed. As you sample wine, take a look at copper winemaking tools used more than a century ago. Then head to Balgownie Estate, where you’ll spend half an hour at the tasting table, sampling varietals like shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, before moving into the winery restaurant, with views of the vineyards, for lunch and a glass of wine.  

Next, make your way to Punt Road Winery for a tasting of classic Australian varietals, and then head to your last stop, Domaine Chandon. At this Australian outpost of famed French Champagne house Moët & Chandon, you’ll enjoy a private tour of the property to discover how sparkling wine is produced. Finally, enjoy light snacks and a glass of bubbles while taking in the views.

Your day trip ends with the drive back to Melbourne, where you’ll be dropped off at your pickup point.

Please note: If lunch is not being served at Balgownie Estate on your tour date, you’ll enjoy lunch at a similar location.

Excellent tour. Our guide, John aka Spud, was very knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. The wineries we visited were great choices, from large operations to very small, each with their own unique character and product. The lunch was terrific as well. An all around great day!
