Tastes of The Yarra Valley
All inclusive private tour
Join us on a taste infused adventure through the appetizing Yarra Valley.
The picturesque Yarra Valley is just a 75 minute drive from the port, located to the north east of the city. On the journey from the city we will take in some of the Melbourne city sights.
The Yarra Valley has been recognized as a premium wine region since 1880 and its variations in soil types and rainfall patterns along the valley, result in distinctive vineyard styles.
With a climate cooler than Bordeaux and slightly warmer than Burgundy, good wine making produces high-quality Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and sparkling wines. The region is also known for its agriculture, grazing land and beer, it's scenic, rural atmosphere, small towns, cafes and bistros and is a favourite weekend getaway for Melbournians.
After arriving in the Yarra Valley we start off with wine and cheese at De Bortoli, one of Australia's most renowned wineries, followed by a visit to something a little smaller at Dixsons Creek Winery to really get the feel of the Valley.
Then a taste paddle of fine and award winning craft beer together with an amazing lunch at Hargreaves Hill Brewery sets us up for the remainder of the day.
And last but not least a visit to Napoleon Brewery and Cider House for a taste paddle and to take in the amazing valley views.
All tasting and lunch are included in the cost of the tour but you can of course add to your mid day refreshments if you wish at your cost.
