Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A wine-lover's delight! The guide shares in-depth knowledge about winemaking and the region as you visit four Yarra Valley wineries, all with a different ambience.
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.

The excursion was definitely worth it. Each vineyards had their own unique wines and a couple of them being smaller vineyards had their winemakers available and was able to answer questions that I had. After learning that I’m a WSET diploma student, the winemakers were very friendly and offered some very unique insights. Also got a perk from one vineyard with an additional free tasting panel! The driver/tour guide is also very friendly and knowledgeable about both wine and the industry. The lunch was delicious as well.
