My friend and I recently traveled to Melbourne for the Aussie Open tennis tournament, but we made the very wise decision to take an overnight trip to the Yarra Valley for wine tasting. We booked a private tour with Yarra Valley Winery Tours and we could not have been happier with the experience. Our tour guide David picked us up promptly at our hotel (the Balgownie Estate - also highly recommend). David was welcoming, friendly and, most importantly, extremely knowledgeable about the Yarra Valley and its glorious wines! After getting a sense of our wine preferences, David personalized the tour for us, taking us primarily to his favorite smaller "boutique" wineries. We began our day at Chandon (not boutique, but still great fun) for a "Splash Tasting" of bubbly. We knew we wanted to try this one out and David smartly brought us there first because he knew it would be crowded and less pleasant if we went later in the day. As a result, we received immediate attention and enjoyed a host of delicious sparkling wines at a leisurely pace. We then journeyed on to several smaller and utterly charming wineries, including: Soumah, Steels Gate, and Yering (well, this one was actually pretty big and a bit more commercial, but the property is beautiful and we still were able to walk right in and taste their lovely wines without delay). For lunch, we went to de Bortoli where we did yet another tasting while our meal was being prepared. The lamb gnocchi was fantastic. In total, my friend and I reckoned that we had sampled at least 40 (!) wines by the end of our wonderful tour. And we filled David's trunk with the ridiculous amount of bottles we purchased throughout the day, in addition to the case that we ordered to be shipped back to the States from Soumah (which I think was my favorite of all, but a very close call). It also helped that David knew which wineries were closed on certain weekdays and he was friendly with the staff at all of them. Side note: if you do a wine tour in Australia, do so on a weekday! We happened to do ours on a Monday and it felt like we had the Valley all to ourselves, which made the experience all the more unforgettable. This tour was absolutely a highlight of my first ever trip to Oz and I can't recommend it enough. Oh - it's also a super easy (less than one hour) drive from Melbourne to the Yarra so penciling in a wine tour is no sweat at all. I'm not sure if this particular tour company does pick-ups in Melbourne, but either way you can get yourself out there and, when you do, be sure to ask for Dave!

Met Christian and the other intrepid wine explorers at Melbourne Town Hall and headed off to the Yarra Valley. Christian provided some great ‘wine’ insights on the way and took us to some amazing wineries, along with a cheese and chocolate stop. A fabulous day out was had by all explorers and we headed back with our Yarra Valley goodies! Thank you Christian for an enjoyable and informative tour....

I went on this tour on Thursday with a friend who had come down from interstate. We were on the tour with a lovely couple from the UK who had migrated to Melbourne. This made it feel almost like a private tour and meant plenty of space on the bus to spread out. Our Driver/Guide Ian provided insight into the YV area and great conversation. The company itself have really put a lot of time into curating the tour and picking out the best wineries with the friendliest staff to visit. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. It is a great day out to relax and spoil yourself, you even get to visit a chocolatier! Thank you Yarra Valley Winery Tours!
