Yarra Valley Wineries - 1 Day Private Tour

The Yarra Valley is located only 1 hour from the doorsteps of Melbourne and is revered as the premium cool-climate wine region of Australia. The area boasts an array of exquisite wine makers and historic wineries that produce the exciting, delicate wines the region is famous for.

Our winery tour will showcase some of the well known wine makers and wineries in the Yarra Valley. Yerring Station is one of the oldest wineries in the region while Domaine Chandon is the premium sparkling producer in the region where we take you behind the scenes to tour their production facilities. We also like to showcase one or two of the smaller, boutique cellars that have charm and unique characteristics.

Lunch is a fine dining, two-course meal with glass of wine at Tarrawarra. 

Along with wineries, there are excellent cheese makers in the region so a visit to Yarra Valley Dairy is always worthwhile. For those with a sweet tooth, the Chocolatier and Ice Creamery is always a popular afternoon stop. Others may prefer to taste a crispy cider or a hand-crafted gin from the 4 Pillars gin distillery.

Whatever your indulgence, our tours will provide some flexibility to suit your palate. Our expert guides will make sure get a taste of the region you wont forget.
