Full description
Travel to the north-east through the bush laden suburbs of Templestowe, Eltham and Kangaroo Ground to the De Bortoli Vineyard at Dixons Creek. This is an elegant start to the day as you'll enjoy a pairing of selected wines and cheeses. It's then on Yering Station, the site of the first vineyard in Victoria in 1838. You'll enjoy a tasting of their estate wines in the original winery (circa 1859) that also features local artworks and produce. For lunch, you'll adjourn to their stunning restaurant. With its world-class views and cuisine, you’ll have an a la carte selection from which to select your main course meal and glass of wine. After lunch, it's a change of pace with a visit to Payten & Jones, one of the smaller producers in the Yarra Valley. Behn Payten and Troy Jones produce small-batch, approachable wines with a personality that includes the familiar chardonnay and pinot noir, together with syrah and some Mediterranean varietals. The afternoon continues with a visit to the Coldstream Hills Winery at Coldstream. Established by James Halliday, one of Australia’s leading authors and commentators on wine, the wines are beautifully crafted and have enjoyed success at numerous wine shows, especially the chardonnay and pinot noir. 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. On days when Coldstream Hills and Medhurst are not open (Tue, Wed & Thu) visits would instead be made to Punt Road and/or Oakridge Vineyards.

Great tour with wonderful vineyards. However, it would be helpful if the guide could have given us more information on the Yarra Valley….the history of the valley and winemaking. We learned nothing about the area and nothing about the places we visited. In that respect, the tour was a bit of a disappointment.

We had a very enjoyable day, very informative, with Rob as an excellent guide open for all individual needs. Great selection of wineries and locations, very tasty lunch and a nice variety to select from. I will recommend this tour to everybody interested in wine, happy not to have chocolate and spirits and ice cream and beer and whatever in one tour.

A thoroughly enjoyable day. Well organised and Paul( the guide) was extremely knowledgeable, professional, courteous and empathetic. The vineyards visited were all different and the wine and food were top class. We left on time and returned to Melbourne on time. I would add that the Yarra Valley is lovely and views from some of the wineries stunning
