Full description
Start with hotel pickup from the central meeting point in Melbourne. Discover the best wine and local produce that the Yarra Valley region has to offer. The first stop is at the Gateway Estate. Sample the best seasonal local produce such as berries, apples, and stone fruit as well as a selection of local cheeses and relishes. Visit an indoor "U-pick" strawberry hydroponic greenhouse with strawberry picking is available most of the year. Sample the Gateway strawberry liqueurs and ports and try their famous "strawberry shot-cake." Enjoy free chocolate samples at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery and watch the chocolatiers at work. Enjoy ample time here to pick up some goodies. Then, sit back and enjoy the views as you travel through the vineyards and rolling hills of the Yarra Valley with each winery selected for its excellent cellar door experience. The cool climate region provides the perfect growing conditions for all varietals, famous for its Pinot Noir, Shiraz, and Chardonnay, some of which you will get to sample throughout the day. Take some free time to explore Healesville township. Stroll by the boutique shops, artist galleries, and grab a bit to eat at one of the cafes or popular pubs. You can even pop into Alchemy Distillery for a quick tasting (own expense). In the afternoon, visit a family-owned cellar where guests can meet the passionate brewers and sample a locally produced craft beer from Watts River Brewery. A similar alternative will be provided should any of the normally scheduled stops be closed for special events or public holidays.

A great day out with a knowledgeable guide and plenty of stops organized. The only negative was no cider as the title suggested - this really needs to be changed. We also stopped at a brewery, for beer only, which was great for some but again this was not mentioned, and didn't suit everyone.

Our tour guide Troy was fantastic and made our day extremely enjoyable.
