Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

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 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.

Fantastic day! Our guide was very informative, giving us lots of information en route about the 4 wineries we were visiting. Also, the staff at each winery told us a lot about their particular wines and how to taste them properly.Lunch was very good and as the tour went on and we tasted more and more wines the conversation got louder and louder. Excellent day made better by the humorous guide and friendly group of fellow wine lovers.Well worth the money.

This trip was enjoyable and informative. Our guide and driver, John was brilliant as he kept us entertained and informed throughout the day. We had three wonderful tastings at four wineries and sampled a sparkling wine of our choice at Domaine Chandon. The lunch provided at Soumah was superb. We would highly recommend this tour.
