This tour begins passenger pick-ups at 9 am, with five conveniently situated pickup points throughout the city of Melbourne. You’ll travel in the company of your fellow lovers of good wine, delicious food and spectacular scenery in air-conditioned comfort, stopping at four of the most beautiful wineries and vineyards in the Yarra region. Your friendly and very informative wine guide is on hand to answer all your questions and show you some very useful tips in the art of swirling, sniffing, sipping and sampling some of the best boutique red and white wines, crisp ciders and the nose tickling bubbles of an excellent Australian made Moet or Brut that this spectacular region has to offer.
Your first point of call is the Punt Road Winery. This gorgeous vineyard is often referred to as the gateway to the Yarra Valley and therefore, it stands to reason it’s the perfect place to begin your wonderful day of indulging in this incredible region. The very knowledgeable and enthusiastic cellar door staff will share with you some of Punt Road Winery’s award winning wines, refreshingly crisp ciders and its rich history.
Balgownie Estate is an absolute jewel and an idyllic spot for a sumptuous restaurant lunch and a glass of the estate’s exquisite wines. This stylish winery features spectacular views of the green, gently sloping hillsides and is one of the first commercial vineyards and winemaking facilities in the region of Bendigo. Let’s not forget the all-important wine tasting at the Balgownie cellar door!
All aboard and you’ll head to Yering Farm, one of the Yarra Valleys most charming boutique wineries. It incorporates spectacularly stunning views with a magnificent sense of heritage to perfection. Whether it’s a traditionally made wine or its modern, equally delicious, counterpart you would love to try, look no more as it’s right here. Have a leisurely stroll and see the antique winemaking equipment used by the Yarra Valley’s winemakers of yesteryear.
Back on your coach and you’ll be off to admire the spectacular scenery at the famous Domaine Chandon. Their amazing cellar door facilities incorporate spectacular floor to ceiling windows, with views to match. The stunning backdrop of the Yarra Valley and its superb vineyards are all presented under the expansive ever changing skyline, while sampling some bubbly and scrumptious nibbles. It doesn’t get much better.
After an unforgettable day, you’ll arrive back in Melbourne between 4:30 and 5 pm, where you’ll be dropped back at your original pickup location.
