Your full-day food and wine tour begins with morning pickup at your Melbourne hotel. Relax on the comfortable minicoach as you enjoy a short and scenic drive toward your first stop of the day, Gateway Estate Farmhouse.

    Upon arrival, head into the greenhouse facilities for a tour and tastings of fresh local produce to learn more about sustainable farming.

    Next up is Napoleone Brewery and Ciderhouse where you’ll be served ciders and an ale made onsite at this rustic micro-brewery in the heart of the Yarra Valley. Using only premium estate-grown apples and pears, the ciders you’ll sample here are made onsite with 100-percent fresh juice.

    Now that you’ve worked up an appetite, head to Killara Estate Winery for your Italian style lunch. At the estate, taste wines and appetizers at the picturesque vineyards of Killara Estate in the upper Yarra Valley.

    Continue your day on a sweet note with a visit to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-Creamery. This bright and cheerful shop dishes up homemade ice cream and more than 150 kinds of chocolate. Sample some of the sugary treats and take a stroll through the shop’s charming sculpture gardens.

    John, our guide, was really friendly. The group size was small due to COVID-19, so it was nice and intimate. Wasn't too interested in the beer tasting, but everything else was good. Could have added another winery since we had some extra time. Would recommend to swap out the beer tasting with 1-2 other wineries. Overall, good experience!

    the Yarra Valley Wine tour was well organised and great to have so many different experiences like the farm store and craft beer as well as the chocolates and wines . This was a our first trip to the Yarra Valley and we were very impressed. Our tour driver Peter was exceptional with his knowledge and personality and certainly made the day most enjoyable.

    A really good full day trip. Starting off at a local market garden which grew, made and sold a really wide range of delicious things to eat and drink, followed by a stop at a chocolate factory. After that we went to a brewery and tried their beers and ciders before going to the first of three vineyards where we had lunch and sampled some great wines. Our driver/guide Peter was incredibly knowledgeable, and made sure that he gave personal attention to everyone on the tour - this made it a really good, relaxed day out. Definitely recommended if you like good food, good beer and wine and good company.

    Really enjoyed the day. Liked how there was more of a variety with the tour rather than 5 wine tastings. Each place had their own story which I always find the most interesting. Tour guide was really great as well. Threw in some fun facts, played some really great music, and gave some helpful tips when going into each of the locations. My two pieces of feedback would be to change up the last winery location (Hanrahan) not the most exciting and not a great a variety of wines to choose from. Lastly including the chocolate tasting as part of cost (it's only $3).

    A great day out in the Yarra Valley led by the friendly and knowledgeable Simon Q. My partner and I took this tour as we were interested in more than just wine and it did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to sample not only some great wines but also ciders, beers, chocolate and strawberries which all were very tasty, and learn about the area. The only thing I could complain about was having to wake up so early but without doing so we wouldn't have had time to enjoy the valley! Would recommend.

    Loved this tour and would recommend to anyone who enjoys great wine, spirits, beer, and gourmet food. Started off by visiting a lovely green house that grew capsicums peppers and strawberries. After touring the greenhouses, we sampled a lovely platter of fresh strawberries, local cheese, pepper jellies amd spreads, plus strawberry Port, liquer, and cream. Fantastic! Next stop was a Chocolate and Ice Ceam shop. Huge bowls of chocolate greeted us and the products available to purchase was vast. From there we went to a lovely winery situated on top of a hill with a lovely view of the vineyards below. To our great delight there were wild kangaroos in the fields and all of us loved to watch them bound about while we sampled some fine wine. Also had our lunch here with scrumptious jumbo porcini tortellini or wood fired thin crust pizza. Delicious! Our next stop was Napoleon Brewery with ice cold cider and superb cold beers. After that another lovely vineyard in the hills. What a wonderful day and would highly recommend to anyone.
