Next, Yarra Valley Chocolaterie steals the spotlight, offering a decadent tasting of 13 handcrafted chocolates, a testament to chocolatiers' artistry. Rochford Wines awaits as our third destination, providing an exquisite guided wine tasting through vineyard gems. Opt for a delightful meal at Rochford's il Vignito restaurant (extra cost). Continue the odyssey at St Hubert's, where expert cellar door staff guide you through 4 distinguished wine tastings.

      Rick’s wine tours
      Absolutely fantastic day! Rick was a brilliant tour guide, he was very informative. I felt our tour was personalised to us and felt well looked after, we were very impressed. The wineries he took us too were great, and the lunch spot served 10/10 pizza’s. We also enjoyed the morning stops to try local fresh fruit and chocolates. Definitely great value for money. Would definitely go again and recommend Rick’s wine tours to friends and family!

      Perfect Wine Tour
      Rick was a friendly and kind person who had a good knowledge of the history of Melbourne and different types of wine. His car was clean and comfortable, and the places he selected to visit were great.

      Fabulous day out
      My daughter & myself booked a public wine tour but due to it being Grand Prix weekend and having no other bookings, instead of cancelling our tour Rick himself took us both on a private tour of the Yarra Valley. We both had a fun & fabulous day including visiting 4 wineries, Rick couldn’t have been more accommodating. Definitely would recommend Rick’s Wine Tours. Thanks heaps Rick.

      Best wine tour ever!
      We were visiting friends in Melbourne after living here for a few years. We have previously done a couple different tours of the Yarra Valley, so this time we asked Rick's to tailor us a tour of the Mornington Peninsula, focusing on smaller wine producers. What a great day! We got picked up at our front door, visited 4 different wineries, had lunch at a very scenic spot, and enjoyed chatting with Rick himself - our tour guide. The wineries he took us to were varied but on the smaller sides, with very different feels at each - thoroughly enjoyable in their own ways. I appreciated that Rick's Tours really listened to what I wanted to experience on ths tour and they certainly delivered. A wonderful day spent in the gorgeous Mornington Peninsula with fantastic wines. Thanks to Rick and the entire team. Carolyn Pollack Calgary, AB

      Kind staff team
      Just wanted to thank everyone who helped me. I was stranded outside the Red Hot Summer concert and sick as well. They really do charge a very reasonable price, but the efpos machine was down, and I only had apple pay on me and I was the only passenger waiting. But they still gave me a ride from Rochford wines to Lilydale station. Thank you so so much! They are an amazing team and I wish the best for them.

      I had a great day! I almost decided not to do a tour, but I’m so glad I did. The atmosphere was wonderful and Bernie was a fantastic guide.

      The best wine tour we have ever been on! Do yourself a favour and go!
      We had a wonderful tour with Rick, it was such a class and full day, with beautiful wineries, incredibly delicious lunch with very generous servings, and would highly recommend this tour! If you were to only do one wine tour in Melbourne, this would be the one to choose, as not only do you have a full day with interesting sights, wineries and fun, you get to take 2 bottles of beautiful wine to take home with you to remember the experience with! Top class all round, and next time we are in Melbourne will choose another of Ricks tours. Thanks for a great day!

      10/10 wine tour!
      There were 8 of us in our group and we all had a fantastic day on this wine tour. The day went by so fast and we all really enjoyed the different wineries, scenery and delicious lunch. Rick was our tour guide for the day and he was super friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend booking this tour!

    We both really enjoyed the day, we chose this tour as unusually we didn’t want to spend the entire day tasting wine!
    The day was varied with an option to have a good lunch
    Melanie was the tour leader, she was very welcoming and friendly, smooth safe driver, van was clean and tidy with good AC
    We appreciated getting back to the city prior to rush hour
    Would use this company again to try other wineries

    Lovely day! Picked up promptly at Ian Potter Centre. There were only 5 of us in the group taken by Rick, who was friendly and informative. Our first stop was at fruit farm where we were given small slices of fruit, nougat and chutneys and given the opportunity to buy something (no pressure). The lady at the fruit farm didn’t explain anything but Rick told us about the fruit farming in the Yarra Valley. Next we went for a chocolate tasting. This was ok but very commercial setting. Next we went to Rochford wines. This cellar door was a beautiful location with excellent wines. The staff were helpful and answered questions. We had lunch here at Il Vignito restaurant. Finally we went to St Hubert’s. Another stunning location with great wines and we could choose our favourite bottle to take home (included in price for the day)!

    Only visited 2 cellar doors but overall excellent value for money and lovely small group tour. I would definitely recommend!

    I went on this tour with my 77 year old Mother and we had the best day. It was the highlight of our 4 days in Melbourne. Everything was so well planned and organized and we never felt rushed. Such a perfect variety of stops throughout the day, we couldn't fault the day. Rick was a brilliant host and guide who ensured we made the most of our day. Couldn't ask for a better Mother/Daughter outing. We made some lovely memories. Thanks Rick!
