Discover why the Yarra Valley is a favorite day-trip destination for Melbournians. Your private tour begins with pickup at your Melbourne hotel in the morning in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. On the scenic, 1-hour drive to the Yarra Valley, chat with your knowledgeable guide about your favorite wines and preferred tasting style so that he or she can create a customized itinerary for the day. You are welcome to include non-winery attractions in your tour also. (See Itinerary below for a suggested list of wineries and other regional attractions.)

The Yarra Valley is best known for cool-climate favorites chardonnay and pinot noir, though you can find many other popular varietals including cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and sauvignon blanc. This tour is all for you, so feel free to set the pace for the day. Try to squeeze in as many wineries as you can, or let your guide will choose a few that best match your interests where you can linger over a glass and soak up the fantastic scenery. Your tour includes tasting fees at all the wineries you visit.

When you get hungry, stop for a gourmet lunch at the beautiful Balgownie Estate Restaurant. Enjoy delicious cuisine paired with fresh local produce and a glass of estate wine, plus your choice of tea or coffee. If you’d like to order additional courses or eat at a restaurant you’ve been eager to try, simply let your guide know (extra costs may apply).

Throughout the tour, ask all the questions you like about regional varietals or the winemaking process in general. Most tours include a visit to Domaine Chandon for a glass of sparkling wine.

At the end of your 7.5-hour tour, you'll be dropped off back at the door of your hotel in Melbourne with rich new knowledge of one of Australia's most beloved winemaking regions.
