Coldstream Hills Vineyard Tasting

The afternoon continues with a visit to the Coldstream Hills Vineyard at Coldstream.

Medhurst Cellar Door, Yarra Valley

The final stop for the day is at the charming Medhurst Vineyard. Established in 1999, the family owned vineyard of 35 acres has a delightful elevation in the foothills of the Warramate Ranges and produces a small selection of elegant table wines.

Journey Home
