Full description
Calling all tastebud explorers for a one-day perfect combo, of travel and taste, as we sample our way through the stunningly exquisite Yarra Valley. While wine is a big part of that historically, these days you can delight in a plethora of options including fresh local produce, chocolate, and learning about the process of Australian winemaking. As we get to sip award-winning vino and ciders, whilst chatting with the person who actually made it whilst being surrounded by spectacular landscapes and vineyard views. Our day starts 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. Guests will have the pleasure of visiting three boutique wineries and cellar-door estates, such as St Huberts, Boat O’Craigo, and Medhurst Wines. In some cases, our itinerary and winery stops will need to be modified due to unforeseen circumstances, such as group sizes, special events, and cellar-door closures. We’ve added free time in Healesville, for guests to grab lunch and explore the gateway town to the Yarra Valley. This tour has been designed for our guests to be able to see the Yarra Valley through local eyes rather than being shuttled from one winery to another. Whilst in Healesville, we highly recommend exploring the local shops, cafes, and restaurants or you can even pop into Four Pillars Gin Distillery, Matilda Bay Brewery, or Alchemy Distillers for a cheeky extra tasting if you fancy (at guest's own expense). This unique wine tour explores all the treasures of the Yarra Valley district in a relaxed small group environment and away from the tourist masses. Highlighting some of our favourite premium wineries and local produce for everyone to enjoy. Giving our guests the opportunity to meet the maker along the way and truly enjoy what this world-class region has to offer. Driving Distance: 140km *Our itinerary and winery stops may change due to unforeseen circumstances, such as group sizes, special events, and cellar-door closures.

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.
