Yarra Valley Wine and Winery Tour from Melbourne

Domaine Chandon, Yarra Valley

After pickup from your selected meeting point in Melbourne, your day trip starts with the approximate 1-hour drive to the Yarra Valley. Throughout the day, you’ll be accompanied by your guide, a wine expert who will entertain and educate you about the varietals that grow in this renowned wine region.

Stop at your first winery, Yering Farm, a rustic winery whose cellar door is housed in a converted hay shed situated on top of a hill. Admire the antique copper tools used by pioneer winemakers more than 100 years ago while you sample the wines.
Continue your day trip to your second winery, Balgownie Estate, a small vineyard famed for its cabernet sauvignon and shiraz varieties. Spend your first 30 minutes here at the tasting table, and then head into the winery restaurant for lunch, which includes a glass of wine and tea or coffee. While you eat, enjoy great views of the vineyard.

Next, head to Punt Road Winery where you’ll enjoy a tasting of the winery’s award-winning classic Australian wines before making your way to your last winery of the day, to the French champagne company Moet and Chandon's Australian production house. Take a private guided tour of the winery to see how sparkling wine is made, and then relax with a glass of bubbly and light nibbles while you marvel at the gorgeous vineyard views.

Your day trip ends with the return drive to Melbourne, where you are dropped off at your original pickup point.

Note: If lunch is not available at Balgownie Estate on the day of your tour, you’ll have lunch at a similar venue.

Superb Tour of the wine region. The amount of samples on offer were vast , about 40 from what I can remember. They really do show you how to drink the wine properly if you are no expert and to grasp basic knowledge of the wine process.
