Our tour commenced from a very convenient Melbourne CBD location - a mere short walk from our accommodation. From there we headed to Yarra Valley. Our driver/tour director (known as "Spud" to his colleagues") provided a commentary along the way pointing out homes of the rich and famous and history of the area we were heading for. At the first winery we visited "Spud" conducted a "crash" course in wine tasting and this together with his vast knowledge of Yarra Valley wines (and Australian wines generally) made our tour so complete. "Spud's" good working relationship with all of the wineries was apparent which resulted in a great day and no queues!
It was a great experience.
We went to four wineries and tasted a lot of good wine!!!
Fantastic day tour ..so glad we chose to do this. Vineyards were great lunch was delicious! Nick our guide was efficient, informative and friendly. Highly recommend this tour !!
This is a very very memorable tour. The tour guide (NICK) is very knowledgeable about wine and a very fun guy to be around. Lunch was nice and from the beginning until the end, the view is so breathtaking, especially the Chandon. We've recommended this to our friends as well.
Fabulous day out! Great guide, great places to visit, great lunch and venue and I loved that it was a small group. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great way to see the Yarra Valley! We are from California and go wine tasting quite frequently, so when we visited Melbourne we thought it would be fun to see what their version of wine country was like. It was really lovely! Our guide John was informative, knowledgeable, pleasant and friendly. We visited four wineries and he helped us understand and sample the wines the right way, highlighting the best wines at each location. The tour was reasonably priced, on time, and the van was clean and comfortable. All in all, we really enjoyed ourselves!
The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable! Also had a sense of humour! Great Great tour! Highly recommended.
Our tour guide John was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I have been to a couple of wine tours but none of them educated us on how to drink wine properly like this one did. The wineries we went to all had something different to offer. I especially enjoyed Chandon as you got to see the equipment that was used, a cool hall and some beautiful scenery
This tour was awesome! I looooved their wine. They were different ambience each winary. This was great experience and really really recomend!
It was a wonderful day. The behind the scenes admin team is wonderful as they were able to handle the details required considering this was a gift to me arranged by my daughter who is overseas. The day itself was run smoothly and our driver guide was inclusive of all of us on the bus and made genuine attempts to keep us all informed in an amusing and lighthearted way. The tour itself included a great range of big and small business wineries. Each stop was welcoming. Lunch great. Thank you.
You don't need to be hugely knowledgeable about wine to enjoy this trip. Our guide, Nick, was easy going and very informative; clearly passionate about wine and the whole wine industry. We got to see four different wineries operating on hugely different production scales and, of course, to sample lots of different and new wines, as well as taking in some fantastic views. Would highly recommend this trip!
We had a fantastic day with the Australian wine tours. John was our driver, teacher and guide for the day. He taught us how to assess the wine, gave us lots of fabulous information and together with our friends made it an exceptional day out. We would highly recommend it as value for money. Margie
