Throughout the day you’ll be escorted around the curving roads of the lush Yarra Valley, visiting no less than two wineries. We have selected two wineries which demonstrate excellence in wine tourism and each with their own international flair.
Napoleone Cider House and Brewery
It’s not all about wine at this rustic, inviting cider house, you’ll be served a decadent paddle of three ciders and an ale. If you haven’t given cider a go before, be prepared for tingling tastebuds. The Yarra Valley has been the home of cider since the 1900s, and the Napoleone family have been in the game for three generations. Using only premium estate-grown apples and pears, the ciders you’ll sample here are made onsite with 100% fresh juice. Nothing else, no concentrates, no additives, and they’re even gluten free!
Yarra Valley Chocolaterie
Indulge on free chocolate while you watch the Belgian and French chocolatiers handcraft over 250 different chocolate and truffle varieties. You’re sure to walk away with something delicious from the ‘Great Wall of Chocolate’. The range of sweet treats includes chocolates infused with fruits and nuts from the Chocolaterie’s orchard of cherries, plums, apricots, citrus, almonds and more. And on a hot day, what could be better than luscious home-made ice cream?
Gateway Estate Farmhouse
At Gateway Estate, you’ll sample the best seasonal local produce such as berries, apples and stone fruit as well as a selection of local cheeses and relishes. Gateway Estate also houses an indoor ‘U-pick’ strawberry indoor hydroponic greenhouse with strawberry picking available most of the year round. Also sample the Gateway strawberry liqueurs and ports and try the famous ‘strawberry shot-cake’!
