Why Travellers Choose This Tour

Visiting four Yarra Valley wineries, all with a different ambience, offers a comprehensive overview of the region's wines.
Your day trip starts with pickup in Melbourne for the 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. (If the winery is not serving lunch on the day of the tour, a similar location will be substituted.)  

Next, make your way to Steels Gate 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 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.

My friend and I really enjoyed our trip. The wineries that we had visited all were different. The lunch was delicious and I really liked how we got to choose what kind of wine we could have with our lunch choice. I would definitely do this tour again.

We really enjoyed this tour, there was no mucking around picking lots of people up and making lots of unnecessary stops. We were straight on the road to the wineries. Lunch was okay - the lamb was good but very small portion, all other options were basically indian/curry, including the fish tacos. Only other thing to keep in mind is that the actual stops are not the same as the ones listed here in the description! We stopped at Yarrawood, Steels Gate, Helen & Joeys and then to Domaine Chandon at the end. Also it was disappointing to only get to try 1 of the wines at Chandon...but otherwise a really fun day, the driver was very chatty and the wines were great. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time visiting the country side of Melbourne ~ Yarra Valley. As well as visiting the four beautiful vineyards. They were all picturesque & unique in their own way. The wine samples were enjoyed, even the cider beer. We also enjoyed our lunch, choose the lamb if it’s an option, you won’t be disappointed. Thankful for our time spent admiring the beautiful vineyards, we even spotted a family of kangaroos hopping through at one stop, which was the highlight (or one of them). Take the time to take the tour!

Our tour guide, Mark was very personable! Upon arrival, he laid out the day's schedule for us and told us how long our ride would take which I appreciated. There was nothing fancy about the tour bus, but we had a small group which made the trip more comfortable as we did not have to share seats. All of the wineries we visited had gorgeous grounds! The lunch provided was amazing (I had the lamb); it was the best meal I had the entire trip. We opted to pay for dessert which was also delicious. Overall great tour!
