Highlights / General details
While the Yarra Valley is a world-renowned wine growing region, wine is only half the story of this gourmet wonderland! While we are considered to provide a Melbourne wine tour to rival any other, we also provide a fine blend of the very best of the region’s other gourmet produce.
Our gourmet food and wine tour of the Yarra Valley starts the day with an exclusive farm gate visit at Wild about Fruit, for a palate-cleansing fruit experience. At this boutique third generation orchard we will 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 our Yarra Valley tour travels to one of the area’s true icons, De Bortoli Wines where we’ll enjoy a tasting from their extensive range of quality 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 tastebuds working overtime!
Our lunch is at the fabulous Rochford Wines where our guests will enjoy three courses in one with an exclusive “made to order” tasting experience. As would be expected on a Yarra Valley wine tasting tour, three wines will also be paired with the guests’ selection for lunch. We have worked with Rochford’s remarkable team to create a unique dining experience for our guests.
The true epicurean heart of the Yarra Valley region is the town of Healesville. After lunch we’ll take some time to explore its finest gourmet gems including the White Rabbit Brewery, Yarra Valley Pasta and the delightful Kitchen Butcher. Those with a sweet tooth will truly salivate over the handmade goodies at Crumbs Gourmet Biscuits and the delightful Kennedy & Wilson Chocolates!
Before returning to Melbourne, the winery tour will visit the premium Oakridge Winery for another sampling of the cool-climate wines produced in this region.
