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.

A great day to remember, Nick was very knowledgeable about the wineries and the area. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area.

It would have been a typical mini-bus tour, except that Brett, our guide, had a great sense of humor! He personalized the tour with local color, history of winemaking in Yarra Valley, and a few zingers thrown in along the way. We visited 2 boutique small producers and a medium sized winery along with the big time Chandon facility. I learned a couple winemaking trivia points, and only wish we could have taken home a whole bunch of bottles! Very much recommend the tour as a great day out in country. Brett made it a really fun day.

Great value! Just did a Barossa tour with another company, and got far less for way more money. Plus, the Barossa trip was very rushed. A small potato, some rice, or grain, would have set off the otherwise nice lunch.

Very educative day tour! John is our tour guide and he gave a lot of knowledge about different kinds of wine and how to taste them. Highly recommended if even if you just have one day out of the town and enjoy a break with friends.

This was a wonderful day trip through beautiful countryside, with a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide John, helpful and friendly staff at each winery, an excellent lunch, and a very good selection of wines covering the gamut of tastes. I also met interesting fellow passengers from a number of countries and enjoyed talking with them, as well. As a Big Red kind of guy, of course I bought a few bottles of Cabs and Syrahs. Thanks for the experience!

This was a last minute booking for me and my friends and we had a blast. We were so glad we did this tour. Our guide, John, was so knowledgable in the world of wine ex-professor and provided us with lots of information to make us appreciate what we were seeing/tasting. Better yet, once we were at the vineyards, he let us loose so we could relax and enjoy the location on our own. This was a great day, only complaint was that it wasn't longer--would have liked a little bit more time at each place. Also, lunch was delicious in case you were wondering.
