One of Australia’s premier wine growing regions, the Yarra Valley is situated less than an hour from Melbourne. Despite its proximity to the bustling city, it feels a whole world away, with breathtaking scenery of rolling hills laced with vineyards against the backdrop of the Great Dividing Range.

Indulge your senses as you savour current vintage, museum and limited release wines at a selection of boutique cellar-doors such as Yarra Yering, Oakridge, Seville Estate, TarraWarra, Pimpernel, and more. Best known for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the region also offers fine Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc along with many alternative varieties.

A sumptuous lunch with accompanying estate wines will be served overlooking the vines at one the region’s leading vineyard restaurants (Levantine Hill, TarraWarra or Oakridge)

As for the afternoon, it’s all down to your impeccable taste. Continue wine tasting, or sample the wares of leading producers such as the Yarra Valley Dairy, Four Pillars Distillery, Napoleon Cider house or Detour Beer Co. Your guide can tailor the perfect afternoon to suit your tastes.
