Full description

Discover some of the Yarra Valley's top wineries by bus to sample delectable local wines and food. Taste a range of fresh local juices, savor quality wines at three wineries, tuck into a delicious local lunch, and top everything off with a visit to a chocolaterie for a sweet finish.

Begin your full-day gourmet tour of the Yarra Valley with an exclusive farm gate visit to Yarra Farm Fresh, for a palate-cleansing fruit tasting experience. Sample a range of freshly made juices and other locally made products. Next, travel to one of the valley’s iconic wineries, Balgownie Estate, to enjoy a tasting from their extensive range of quality wines. Learn how to swirl and sniff like true connoisseurs, while sampling some of the very finest cool-climate wines. At the Yarra Valley Dairy the amazing products will truly melt in your mouth. The cheeses here are stunning and have your taste buds working overtime! Stop for lunch at the fabulous Rochford Wines and choose from four different main meals, with a glass of wine, tea, or coffee. Take some time to explore the gift shop, or perhaps climb the spiral staircase to enjoy the panoramic views from Rochford’s famous lookout tower. After lunch, make your way to one of Australia’s great wineries and member of the Australian Tourism Hall of Fame, Yering Station. Home of Victoria’s oldest vineyards, first planted in 1838, the wines here are of exceptional quality and a tasting here is not to be missed. The final destination is the amazing Yarra Valley Chocolaterie. Here, enjoy a complimentary tasting of the spectacular delights handcrafted by the chocolaterie’s French and Belgian chocolatiers.

Our tour guide was Chris N, he was the sweetest and very friendly. The tour was awesome, although I can't quite hold my liquor however the cheese tasting was amazing, the chocolate factory was even better, we got to try a lot of types of chocolates. the views were amazing as well, Chris was very knowledgeable about the environment and he even threw some fun facts about the areas for us. The lunch was quite awesome for those who are not vegan, for those who are vegan, the lunch was quite acceptable, with a side of wine or soft drinks and tea or coffee as a palate cleanser. overall, we love the tour, the group was friendly and we loosen up and get to know each other after a drink, naturally I would recommend this for those who wants to explore Yarra Valley, especially travelers like us. Thanks Chris for arranging our schedule and making sure we're on time and get to see all the places!
