An easy day trip from Melbourne or the Yarra Valley, the Yarra Valley is home to beautiful rolling hills and heritage vineyards renowned for excellent chardonnay and pinot noir. Begin your full-day gourmet tour with pickup at your Melbourne hotel, and then relax on the drive to the valley. For your first stop, visit the family-run De Bortoli Winery to taste a selection of award-winning wines served with local and international artisan cheeses.

Continue on to visit local wineries in the region and feel free to ask questions about the winemaking process as you sample each estate’s offerings. After working up an appetite, make your way to a winery restaurant for a delicious 2-course lunch paired with a glass of wine. Enjoy fresh regional produce and cuisine among a beautiful atmosphere with vineyard views.

Next, stop in at Coldstream Hills Winery for another cellar door tasting and tour of ‘amphitheater’-style vineyards built on hillsides. 

Enjoy the scenic return drive to Melbourne, where you are dropped off back at your hotel in the early evening at the end of your tour.

Not particularly good value Lots of time spent travelling, Guide was enthusiastic, nice person. Some of the vineyards were pleased to see us, others were just going through the motions. Lunch was said to be excellent but really wasn't

A lovely day

We set off from Melbourne to Yarra Valley for a wine tasting tour. The first winery, DeBertoli, was excellent with the cheese pairing. Lunch was excellent. Our driver was friendly, courteous, informative, and helpful. Our tour was on the day of the Melbourne Cup. She found a winery that brought out a television and we tourists were able to watch the race. The con for the tour was that we really didn't need to do the last winery, or even the last two wineries. We had had plenty of tasting and after a while, the wine was "all the same."

The wine tour is well organised and a fabulous experience. A great way to get out of the city and see the Yarra Valley. The wineries are excellent and you get to taste the best wines that are produced in this region. Bill is very friendly and happy to accommodate special requests. Everything is punctual but with plenty of time to enjoy a superb lunch. Highly recommended.

This was a great tour! Our driver Bill was funny and very informative. We went to a variety of wineries ranging from small, boutique to larger, more commercial enterprises. Lunch was delicious and integrated nicely with our wine tasting. Great wines and the first stop wonderful cheeses too.

This tour was wonderful. Our guide, Nicci, was relaxed, flexible, knowledgeable, friendly and managed to keep things on track while never making us feel like we were on the clock. I always worry about tours - big buses and uninteresting stops - but this tour was everything I could have hoped for. Because it is a food and wine tour, everyone was looking for a similar experience and we all got along great. I was also one of only two singles on the tour, but that was completely irrelevant - everyone was interested in conversation, but willing to let you stay quiet and just take in the view as well. On top of all that, each stop was excellent. The wines were diverse and interesting, the folks managing each tasting were great, and the views were incredible. I can't recommend this tour enough. I'll be seeking out this type of tour again in the future.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and prepared us for each stop before arrival. The wineries selected had nice wines. I dont know that it was necessary to visit 5 wineries as the types of wines were mostly the same because of the climate We were very lucky to had a very congenial group, which doesnt always happen

We had a lovely time on this tour. BILL was a very nice guide. Told us interesting bits about the area, and nice juicy bits about the various winery people, which made the experience very memorable. We were grateful to have a driver, because 5 wineries is a lot of drinking. The de Bertoli wine and cheese tasting and the wines at the end of the tour were most memorable. Lunch was very upscale, which made the whole group very congenial. I really appreciated the small size of the tour 11 of us we all enjoyed getting to know each other.

This tour was fantastic!! We went two weeks ago and had the best time. Our tour guide Bill was great. All of the wineries were really wonderful and it was great to be able to have the experience in a small group. My husband and I really enjoyed that aspect. At every winery they were expecting us and were set up and ready to go with delicious wines for us to try. At De Bartoli they did a wine and cheese pairing that was DIVINE. We had a wonderful lunch at the Tokar Estate the grounds are beautiful!. The food was really good. We were picked up at our hotel right on time and dropped off as expected and the ride was very comfortable. It was absolutely worth the money! A great, great excursion from Melbourne!
