Overview
Discover Victoria’s Yarra Valley wine region on this day trip from Melbourne. With an expert guide to act as your wine tutor, visit four of the area’s best-known wineries: Steels Gate Winery, Balgownie Estate, Yering Farm and Domaine Chandon. During your series of wine tastings and an included vineyard lunch, you’ll find out why the Yarra Valley is one of Australia's favourite wine regions, loved for its picturesque scenery. Choose from several pickup points in central Melbourne. (Itinerary subject to change without notice)
Highlights
  • Visit four wineries for a comprehensive overview of Yarra Valley wines
  • See century-old winemaking equipment and learn about the region’s terroir
  • Great value: Tour includes tastings and vineyard-view lunch with wine
  • Hassle-free: Convenient pickup and drop-off at selected locations
What to Expect
Meet your driver at your selected meeting point, then enjoy views of the scenic countryside on the drive from the city to the Yarra Valley. The first stop of the day is the rustic Yering Farm, where you sample wines and check out historic winemaking equipment before heading to Balgownie Estate, famed for its cabernet sauvignon and shiraz varietals. After a tasting, visit the winery restaurant for a lunch served with a glass of wine and tea or coffee. (If the winery is not serving lunch on the day of the tour, a similar location will be substituted.) From Balgownie Estate, continue to the award-winning Steels Gate Winery and Domaine Chandon, the Australian production house of Moët & Chandon—learn about sparkling winemaking as you sip a glass of bubbly. Following a day of wine tasting, the tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

We have been before, nine years ago. Second time didn’t disappoint. Our guide, John was very knowledgeable and the wineries we visited provided opportunities to taste a variety of Yarra wines. Lunch beautiful. Good value.
