What You Can Expect

Yarra Valley Food and Wine Small Group Tour

Yarra Valley Food and Wine Small Group Tour

An easy day trip from Melbourne or the Yarra Valley, the Yarra Valley is home to beautiful rolling hills and heritage vineyards renowned for excellent chardonnay and pinot noir. Begin your full-day gourmet tour with pickup at your Melbourne hotel, and then relax on the 1-hour drive to the valley. For your first stop, visit the family-run De Bortoli Winery to taste a selection of award-winning wines served with local and international artisan cheeses.
Continue on to Dixons Creek Estate, where you’ll have a chance to tour the winery and meet renowned Yarra Valley winemaker Graeme Miller. Feel free to ask questions about the winemaking process as you sample the estate’s offerings. After working up an appetite, make your way to either Tokar Estate, Soumah or Ezard at Levantine Hill (depending on season, availability and size of group) for a delicious two-course lunch. Enjoy fresh regional produce and cuisine among a beautiful atmosphere with vineyard views.
Next, stop in at Coldstream Hills Winery for another cellar door tasting and tour of ‘amphitheater’-style vineyards built on hillsides. 
Enjoy the scenic return drive to Melbourne, where you’ll be dropped off back at your hotel in the early evening at the end of your 8-hour tour.

* Please note: from July 1, 2018 onwards, this tour will visit Coombe, The Melba Estate instead of Yering Farm & Dixons Creek Estate.
Tour guests will be offered 2014 Tribute Series Nellie Melba sparkling blanc de blancs on arrival matched with a beautiful freshly shucked Sydney Bay oyster with red wine vinegar & shallot dressing. 

Guests will then continue the wine-tasting with a showcase of the award-winning estate grown Coombe Farm Wine, approximately 6 in total.

Nicky, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the wines produced in Yarra Valley. She asked our tastes and tailored our visits to meet them. Lunch was provided at one of the wineries and it was very good. I highly recommend this tour.

This was a great tour! Our driver Bill was funny and very informative. We went to a variety of wineries ranging from small, boutique to larger, more commercial enterprises.
Lunch was delicious and integrated nicely with our wine tasting. Great wines and the first stop wonderful cheeses too.

Great Tour! It was a small group, only six of us. Bill took us to 5 different stops and was very knowledgeable about the area and about wine. I would highly recommend this tour to others.

This tour was wonderful. Our guide, Nicci, was relaxed, flexible, knowledgeable, friendly and managed to keep things on track while never making us feel like we were on the clock. I always worry about tours - big buses and uninteresting stops - but this tour was everything I could have hoped for. Because it is a food and wine tour, everyone was looking for a similar experience and we all got along great. I was also one of only two singles on the tour, but that was completely irrelevant - everyone was interested in conversation, but willing to let you stay quiet and just take in the view as well. On top of all that, each stop was excellent. The wines were diverse and interesting, the folks managing each tasting were great, and the views were incredible. I can't recommend this tour enough. I'll be seeking out this type of tour again in the future.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and prepared us for each stop before arrival. The wineries selected had nice wines. I dont know that it was necessary to visit 5 wineries as the types of wines were mostly the same because of the climate
We were very lucky to had a very congenial group, which doesnt always happen

What an amazing day. Bill our guide was so knowledgeable about the area and wine and answered all our questions. Very relaxed day out and even saw two albino wild kangaroos. We were treated to a great day out and a great lunch. Would highly recommend this tour.
