Join a one day tour to experience one of Australia's premier wine regions, the picturesque Yarra Valley.
Setting out early from Melbourne, you'll travel northeast for a scenic ride to the Yarra Valley. You'll first stop at Gateway Estate Farmhouse where you can learn about sustainable and organic farming, then sample a variety of local produce. Indoor strawberry picking is also available throughout the year at additional cost. Next up you will enjoy some delicious chocolate samples at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-creamery and watch the chocolatiers at work. You will have enough time here to pick up some goodies - great for those chocolate lovers you need a gift for!
Your journey will then continue to the Napoleone Brewery and Cider House, where you have the chance to sample the refreshing ciders handcrafted by one of the largest producers of apples and stone fruits in Australia. Then it's time to enjoy some of the wines that the Yarra Valley is famous for. The area's cool climate is perfect for producing Chardonnnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and a whole range of sparkling wines. You'll first head to the beautiful Italian-sytle Killara Estate Winery and enjoy a relaxed two course lunch while taking in some of the best views of the Yarra Valley. Don't forget to get some pictures of the rolling hills and sweeping views that encompass this vineyard.
You will finish the day off in style by visiting one of the most iconic wineries of the Yarra Valley, Hanrahan's Vineyard. Local wine owner Bev will take you through their incredible selection of wines, while you relax in their funky and stylish boutique cellar door. You will also pay a visit to Punt Road Wines in the heart of the Valley if you depart on Wednesdays. Afterwards, it's time to get back on the bus to Melbourne.
