Your tour starts with pickup from your central Melbourne hotel. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned minivan, set out on the journey into the Yarra Valley—a scenic drive through the Melbourne suburbs and lush countryside.
The first stop of the day is De Bortoli Winery, a family-run establishment renowned for its chardonnay and pinot noir varietals. After learning a little about the winemaking process and the region’s most popular grapes, sample some of the award-winning wines for yourself, accompanied by a selection of regional cheeses.
Continue to local wineries where you can enjoy estate tours and wine tastings.
Enjoy lunch at a winery restaurant, where you are treated to a 2-course gourmet meal. As you feast on the seasonal dishes and taste regional specialties, gaze out over the verdant expanse of vineyards.
After lunch, the final stop of the day is at Coldstream Hills Winery, where you admire the impressive tiered vineyards before heading to the cellar door for a guided wine tasting.
Finally, relax on the scenic drive back to Melbourne, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
