Let’s Go To The Valley
We’ll pick you up at your city hotel, otherwise, those staying outside of the city can meet us at the Melbourne Town Hall.
Take a moment to meet your friendly guide who will be your master of proceedings for today! All of our guides are local experts who will deftly unpack the complexities of the wine for you, while helping you to discover the joy of the Yarra Valley.
The anticipation then starts to mount as we leave Melbourne’s outskirts, passing through the bush-laden suburbs of the north-east.
Coldstream Hills Vineyard Tasting
Established by James Halliday, one of Australia’s leading authors and commentators on wine, Coldstream Hills’ wines are beautifully crafted and have enjoyed success at numerous wine shows, especially the chardonnay and pinot noir. The stop here includes a tasting and explanation of the wines.
Medhurst Vineyard Tasting
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. Enjoy another tasting of this family’s wonderful wines together with house made dips and bread.
Domaine Chandon Vineyard Sparkling
We then head to the very famous and very French Domaine Chandon. Enjoy a private tour through the Riddling Hall and hear about the production process before enjoying a glass of premium sparkling wine (methode champenoise) while taking in the glorious vista.
Yering Station Vineyard Lunch & Tasting
Yering Station’s stunning Wine Bar Restaurant is the perfect lunch venue. With its world-class views and cuisine, you’ll enjoy an a la carte main course meal. After lunch, visit the original winery (circa 1859) that features local artworks and produce as well as estate and reserve wines to taste.
De Bortoli Vineyard Tasting with Cheese
Our final stop for the day is the De Bortoli Winery at Dixons Creek. As Italian as Domaine Chandon is French, it’s a great end to the experience with a degustation of superbly flavoured cheeses that complement the sparkling, table and dessert wines.
At the end of your Yarra Valley wine and food tour, there is just one thing for you to do - enjoy the ride back to base, as we pass through Steels Creek and the Christmas Hills for superb Valley views. Just make sure to keep an eye out for the occasional kangaroo!
