This is a daytour with several very good wine tastings of the prominent wines of the region, eg chardonneys, pinot gris and pinot noir. Lunch included with good choices of main dishes and chocolate and cheese tasting after lunch. A relatively small group and good guide made the day a very good experience.
I cannot recommend this enough. Our guide, Steven, was knowledgeable friendly and helpful. Both food and wine were exceptional. A real eye opener to Australian wine. I would gladly recommend this to anyone. Top draw !!
I am so glad we booked this tour!
From the minute Stephen collected us promptly, in the morning, he was professional, interesting and helpful, noting interesting historical points through the city and giving us some information about the Yarra Valley. Our small group of six were all made to feel welcome and chatted all the way to the valley.
Two of our group went to the sanctuary, whilst the rest of us had a full day wine tasting. Stephen’s relationship with the various vineyards and wine tasters made us feel like we were in good hands and each vineyard was interesting and the wine tasting thoroughly enjoyable.
Food was excellent – the antipasti at Chandon was much needed after a morning wine tasting, and lunch at Yering Station was delicious.
I would highly recommend the tasting to everyone – the small group, the quality guide and the excellent service makes this trip well worth it.
Paul was so easy to work with. He communicated quickly via email to schedule and answered all my questions. His van is comfortable and clean. Paul was a great tour guide and well liked by my group. We hired him for the next day and was quick on his feet with ideas when your scheduled activity was cancelled by the weather. Thanks again for helping us to love Melbourne.
It was a wonderful tour. Good selection of wineries from big to small, Steven was a wonderful guide, lunch was great with an amazing view, and we felt special at every winery we visited. In addition to sampling many wines our tastings at two of the wineries were accompanied by charcuterie or paired cheeses. Best wine tour we have ever taken, and we have done a fair number now on four continents.
Love the small group( 7 people in the morning and 2 more join us at lunch time). Our guide Paul is very informative and nice. Very good lunch at Yerring Station. Highly recommended.
If you are looking for a Yarra wine tour, this is the one for you! Our guide, Paul was great – very knowledgeable, personable and really made the day a great one. We had a group of 9 which was just right and we visited 5 vineyards.. The views at Chandon are just amazing and lunch at Yerring station isn’t too bad either! The only difficult thing about the day is deciding which wine to buy!
The day was perfect. The vineyards are beautiful and the wines are one of the best in Australia. Also the guide is very good and has an extreme knowledge of Australian wines.
Paul provides the highest standard of service available. Personal and efficient. It absolutely made our holiday! Well done Vinetrekker.
I had a wonderful day riding through the country around the Yarra Valley on this tour, and we visited some splendid wineries with delicious offerings. I tried some truly first-rate wines. Everything about the tour was luxurious from the comfortable car in which our tour guide Paul picked us up, to the gourmet luncheon, and finally to the opulent cheese plate at the end of the day. It’s a beautiful and tasty way to spend a day! Also, we had a small tour group, and I enjoyed chatting with my fellow passengers. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the area’s wines, and he made it a pleasant, memorable day. Thank you!
