Itinerary

The Yarra Valley is the nearest premier wine region to Melbourne, only a 40-minute drive from the city with central CBD departure. Visitors will have the opportunity to experience The Valley’s various attractions and hidden treasures.

The cool climate here is ideal for producing various wines, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, and sparkling wines.
The history of wine-growing in the Yarra Valley dates back to 1838 when European settlers arrived. Still, even before that, the area has been abundant for the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung Aboriginal people.
The region’s location, soil composition, and cool climate facilitate the growth of vines and abundant local produce from the surrounding farmlands.

Begin your Yarra Valley Wine Excursion with a chocolate lover’s paradise! Revel in this delectable spot through a chocolate sampling session amid scenic groves and the stunning vistas of Yarra Valley. Observe European chocolate artisans as they meticulously create over 400 varieties of chocolates, all available for purchase. There’s plenty of time to pick up some regional treats, perfect as gifts for chocolate enthusiasts. Alternatively, enjoy a cup of coffee or house-made gelato at the café!

St Hubert’s vintners, established in 1862, were pioneers in the area, contributing significantly to the Yarra Valley’s reputation as a distinguished wine-producing region by the 1960s. Renowned for its superior Cabernet Sauvignon, St Huberts now offers Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Roussanne, among other exquisite climate wines. The winery has expanded to include exclusive reserve wines like Sparkling Rose, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Munier. Visitors can enjoy a sophisticated 8-glass premium wine tasting at one of the Valley’s most modern cellar doors. The tasting quality is sure to impress every guest.

Take a moment to unwind in the charming town of Healesville. We’ve allotted free time in Healesville, allowing guests to savour lunch and discover this entrance to the Yarra Valley. This tour is crafted for guests to experience the Yarra Valley from a local’s perspective rather than just hopping between wineries. Exploring the local boutiques, art galleries, cafes, and eateries in Healesville is recommended. (costs incurred by guests)

In the afternoon, we visited two family-run boutique wineries for tastings. Our schedule can change based on group size or availability. Some of the wineries we love in the Yarra Valley are Yering Farm Wines, Medhurst Wines, Yering Station, Killara Estate, Napoleone Cider & Orchard Bar, Rochford Wines Yarra Valley, Helen & Joey’s Wines, and more. Relax in the peaceful countryside with a glass of wine and a great selection.
