Full description

Take a full-day wine tour in the Yarra Valley and discover some of the best wineries in Victoria just an hour's drive from Melbourne. Stop at 4 different wineries, taste a range of wines, and savor an included lunch.

After pickup from a range of meeting points, depart for the Yarra Valley. Make your first stop at Greenstone, nestled in the base of the Christmas Hills. Begin by learning the art of the swirl, sniff, and slurp from your expert wine guide and then try a range of cellar door tastings.

Move on to the next venue, Balgownie Estate, a stylish winery featuring great views and an excellent restaurant. Enjoy lunch with a glass of the estate's wine, then taste more of the wines produced there at the cellar door.

In the afternoon, travel through the gorgeous scenery to a smaller boutique winery, Yering Farm. Experience traditionally made wines and see the antique copper wine-making equipment used by the Yarra Valley’s pioneer vignerons.

Afterward, make your final stop at Soumah of Yarrah Valey. The cool climate allows this winery to specialize in styles and varieties typical to northern Italy and southeastern France, such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Sample the award-winning wines before returning to Melbourne.

    Wine tasting is great! Super recommended for drinkers. Lunch provided is really nice too at a fancy location. The only bumper is an impatient guide which I remembered giving us extra 5mins when I was paying for my merchandise. After that, realised he drove off leaving behind a big group of us. I tot that was really unnecessary. As much as I understand that time keeping is necessary but we all still ended the tour ahead of time. Pretty much left a bad taste that day. Nv been to a tour when a guide behaved like this nor left anyone behind. Car can be better as well! Not as comfy as all the tour vans I ever had.

    Chris our tour guy was very friendly. He was very knowledgeable and help us to learn a little bit more about Yarra Valley and more. The lunch at Soumah winery was delightful and all of the people in each winery were very nice and friendly. We definitely recommend this tour.

    A great value for the money. An informative and pleasurable day’s outing in beautiful countryside. Memorable wines and inclusive of a lovely lunch. We were quite fortunate to have an superbly knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humor and fun. Guests hailed from several countries which made for good company.
