Yarra Valley Gourmet Day Tour
While the Yarra Valley is a world-renowned wine growing region, wine is only half the story of this gourmet wonderland and our tour provides a fine blend of the very best of the region’s wines and other gourmet produce. Yarra Valley wine is world renowned. Experience our Melbourne wine tour to rival any other!
We start the day with an exclusive farm gate visit at Yarra Farm Fresh, for a palate-cleansing fruit experience. At this boutique third-generation orchard we sample a range of freshly made juices and learn about the patented leading-edge technology that creates each glass of goodness. We will also sample and learn about the wide range of farm-fresh apples grown on the property.
Next we travel to one of the valley’s true icons, De Bortoli Wines where we’ll enjoy a tasting from their extensive range of quality wines. We’ll learn how to swirl, sniff and slurp like true connoisseurs, while tasting some of the very finest cool climate wines.
The amazing produce at the Yarra Valley Dairy will truly melt in your mouth. The cheeses here are truly stunning and will have your taste buds working overtime!
Our lunch is at the fabulous Rochford Wines where our guests can choose from four different main meals, with a glass of wine & tea/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 we make our 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.
Before returning to Melbourne, we visit the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie where you’re welcomed with free chocolate tastings, displays of thousands of premium chocolates and European chocolatiers at work handcrafting their chocolate creations.
You will commence the journey home knowing that they have truly enjoyed the very best that the Yarra Valley has to offer.
