Yarra Valley Wine Tour – Visit Australia’s cool climate wine region.
Your private day tour of the Yarra Valley wineries with a professional driver/guide is great for wine buffs and enthusiasts and travels off the Yarra Valley tourist tracks visiting boutique wineries.
The picturesque Yarra Valley on the outskirts of Melbourne was recognized as a premium wine region as early as 1880. Variations in soil types and rainfall patterns along the valley, result in distinctive vineyard styles. With a climate cooler than Bordeaux and slightly warmer than Burgundy, good winemaking produces high-quality chardonnay, pinot noir and sparkling wines. The region is Victoria’s oldest, and has over 3600 hectares under vine.
The region is also known for its agriculture and grazing. The Yarra Valley is also enjoyed for its scenic, rural atmosphere, small towns, cafes and bistros and is a favorite weekend getaway for local Melbournians.
Your private Yarra Valley wine tour includes four tastings – at large and small boutique wineries (off the tourist track). Choose from over 80 Yarra Valley wineries producing elegant sparkling, wines, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, to complex Pinot Noir and rich Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz.
A one course lunch at one of the most popular vineyard restaurants with complimentary glass of wine can be included.
