Full description

Eat and drink your way through the stunningly exquisite Yarra Valley on a tour from Melbourne. Visit traditional wineries and learn about the process of Australian winemaking. Sip award-winning wine and ciders whilst being surrounded by spectacular landscapes. Taste fresh produce and chocolate. Start the day with an indulgent feast for your senses, at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice-Creamery with an exclusive behind-the-scenes chocolate tasting. Over 250 handcrafted chocolates are available for purchase, as well as a variety of free chocolate samples to enjoy. Visit three boutique wineries and cellar-door estates, such as St Huberts, Boat O’Craigo, and Medhurst Wines. In some cases, the itinerary and winery stops will need to be modified due to unforeseen circumstances, such as group sizes, special events, and cellar-door closures. Enjoy free time in Healesville, grab lunch and discover the gateway town to the Yarra Valley. See the Yarra Valley through local eyes rather than being shuttled from one winery to another.

Whilst in Healesville, explore the local shops, cafes, and restaurants or pop into Four Pillars Gin Distillery, Matilda Bay Brewery, or Alchemy Distillers. Finally, enjoy a relaxing ride back to Melbourne.

Our driver/guide Troy did a good job explaining the day ahead and as much as he could about each site. Although I enjoyed the places we visited it would have been nice to include one more winery. Including the Brewery meant it suited me and my partner though as he's not a big wine person. I found it odd that the Brewery nor Rockford did much of a spiel on their history.

Great Day Out

This tour was a great day out. The food, wines, ciders and chocolates were all good and our guide, Leon made it all the more enjoyable. His knowledge of the area is excellent and he kept our touring group well informed throughout the entire day. I highly recommend this day tour to everyone

A fun day out

A great day out exploring the Yarra Valley and the wines produced there. Was able to try a good range of wines at each stop. Lunch was very nice (although a bit small). Also enjoyed going to the chocolate shop however due to the enormous number of people there we really needed more than half an hour as it took that long in the queue to get out. Tour guide/bus driver was very friendly and informative about the Yarra Valley area and the wines.
