Overview
Enjoy an epic Yarra Valley wine tour departing from Melbourne. Take in the beautiful countryside with informative commentary as you travel by comfortable bus through to the heart of the Yarra Valley region. You'll visit three premium boutique wineries for wine tastings to appreciate the terroir and current vintages of this cool-climate region. At one of the wineries, you'll enjoy a seasonal main course with estate wine (of your choice). Along our scenic wine trail, you'll visit the famous Yarra Valley Dairy to taste hand-made cheeses. You will then visit a craft brewery to quench your thirst on a glass of their beer or apple/pear cider. For the finale, we head over to Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-creamery where you can indulge in copious amounts of chocolate samples at your indiscretion. This is an all-inclusive day trip with the tour price covering all fees involving wine and cheese tasting, lunch with wine, glass of beer or cider, and transfers from and back to Melbourne.
