About The Tour
Sample delicious wines in the Yarra Valley, one of Australia’s most cultural regions. As well as exploring a collection of welcoming wineries, you’ll get to discover the jaw-dropping scenery that defines this part of the country. Dipping valleys turn into quaint villages, and farm houses turn into impressive wine cellars that sell world-class wines. The Yarra Valley Tour is a must-do for any culture lover.

Please note: on certain days, the wineries listed may not be open and available to visit. In this case, we will visit an alternative Yarra Valley winery to offer the same experience.
Our one-day Yarra Valley tour begins in Melbourne, where we’ll transfer you to the rolling hills of the Valley. We’ll start with a visit to the Gateway Estate, a gourmet farm that makes their own range of delicious relishes, which you can tuck into with a platter of local fruit and cheese. Afterwards, we’ll head to the Napoleone Brewery and Cider House, where you can try rustic ciders and ales.
At the Dominique Portet Winery, you can sample wines produced by this well-loved wine making family and have the chance to win a bottle of plonk while you’re at it. Our next stop is Rochford Winery for an extensive tasting of their well known Aussie wines, and a browse through their gift shop if you wish.
For lunch, it’s on to Killara for a long Italian style lunch. Chose from the seasonal Mediterranean inspired menu of pizzas, pastas and salad and take in some of the best views of the Yarra Valley.
We’ll finish the day with a sweet stop at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-Creamery so you can grab a bite to eat and sample some mouth-watering sweet treats from the region. Then it’s back through the dipping valleys to Melbourne, where the tour comes to an end.
