Epicurean Adventure in the Yarra Valley
The Yarra Valley, less than an hour's drive from Melbourne has garnered a global reputation for producing expert Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and is considered one of Australia's most influential wine-producing regions.
With a vinicultural history dating back to the 1800s and a rich cultural heritage linked to the indigenous Wurundjeri people, it is a fascinating place to enjoy a premium epicurean tour. The Yarra Valley has over 80 cellar doors, lots of boutique wineries and restaurants serving fresh, local food as well as a varied array of gourmet delicacies from artisanal cheese to craft cider and beer.
Ideal for guests with impeccable palates, this expertly guided private full-day tour will see you enjoy a number of tastings at some of the region's ultra-premium boutique wineries such as Seville Estate and Oakridge. During the tastings, your expert guide will regale you with information about the processes behind wine production and the successes of the Yarra Valley in the wine industry. Stop for lunch at the restaurant at Oakridge Wines, where you will be treated to the chef’s multi-course degustation menu served with carefully matched estate wines.
After your gourmet luncheon, the rest of the afternoon can be tailored to your specific requirements. You can continue wine tasting or opt to sample some locally produced cheese, delight yourselves with a visit to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie, or while away time at one of the region's craft breweries or even gin distilleries.
