yarra valley wine tour
Relaxed, personalised tours to the Yarra Valley that includes Coldstream Hills, Warramate, Domaine Chandon, Yering Station and De Bortoli Wineries. We've selected certain wineries for what we believe they bring to the day's experience, however if you have any particular wineries you'd like to visit, please advise us.
Our first stop is at the Coldstream Hills Winery at Coldstream. Established by James Halliday, one of Australia's leading authors and commentators on wine, the wines are beautifully crafted and have enjoyed success at numerous wine shows, especially the chardonnay and pinot noir.
It's then a short drive to the charming Warramate Vineyard. Very boutique in size with only 17 acres under vine, they have some of the oldest unirrigated vines in the Valley so the wines exhibit great flavour. The view from the cellar door is among the best you'll see during the day so don't forget your camera !
We then head to the very famous and very French Domaine Chandon. Enjoy a tour of the production facilities before settling down to a glass of premium sparkling wine (methode champenoise) while nibbling on cheese and bread and taking in the glorious vista.
We then travel to Yering Station for lunch in their stunning Wine Bar Restaurant. With its world class views and cuisine, you'll have a full a la carte selection from which to select your main course meal. After lunch, visit the original winery (circa 1859) that features local artworks and produce as well as estate wines to taste.
Our final stop for the day is the De Bortoli Winery at Dixons Creek. As Italian as Domaine Chandon is French, it's a great end to the day with superbly flavoured cheeses that compliment the sparkling, table and dessert wines.
Our journey home takes us through Steels Creek and Christmas Hills for superb Valley views and the occasional kangaroo. Expect to arrive back at your accommodation around 6.30pm.
