Laid back,Small-Group Yarra Valley Wine Tour :Wine,Gin,Cider+more

Our wine tour is a social, down to earth and laid back trip that offers great wines, gin,cider and more..and we have a laugh doing it!

We'll pick you up in the morning and focus on everyone getting to know each other. We get everyone to add to a Spotify playlist so we have some tunes and spend the first hour just chatting!

Every tour is different. Everything we do on my trip is discussed by the group in the morning. We will give you options to choose from including many different wineries, Distilleries, a cheese place,a chocolate factory, Cideries, restaurants and breweries. 
However if you just want to come along and put your trust in us, we will visit 4 or 5 unique venues, all with a point of difference.

Generally we do 2 wineries,a restaurant,a distillery and either,a chocolate place or a champagne place.

We don't include lunch in the price, so we go to a restaurant (Quarters) where you can order/pay what you want to eat/drink.

We use a 24 seater bus, but only fill 10-18 seats

Stop At: Yarra Valley, Victoria Australia

We will drive for 55 minutes to our first venue. After about 45 minutes its starts getting scenic!

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Yering Farm Wines, St Huberts Rd, Yering VIC 3770, Australia

Try 5-6 wines and an incredible Pink Lady Apple Cider at this very small, boutique and family run vineyard.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Tokar Estate, 6 Maddens Ln, Coldstream VIC 3770, Australia

We also provide cheese platters here to compliment your tasting.
Incredible views. Laid back type of winery with an incredible range of tastes.
From Medium bodied reds, to pinot grigio, from sweet desert wines to sparkling, from unfiltered pinot noirs, to Chardonnay to heavy Shiraz and fortified wines.
We also provide cheese platters here to compliment your tasting.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Domaine Chandon, 727 Maroondah Hwy, Coldstream, Victoria 3770 Australia

Due to this place not really accepting tour groups, we can't actually generally include drinks here. If we can sense that there are some of the group that reaaalllly want to go to Chandon...what we do is after lunch instead of taking 30m minutes to just relax and enjoy the lunch venue itself, we drive those who want to check out Chandon and essentially leave you there for 30-40 minutes. This is our way around it. So we can do it, but it definitely will be at your own expense and is not included in the price. A little frustrating, but we are literally the only tour that even offers that!

We find all people want to do there is just have a glass and enjoy the scenery anyway, so 30-40 minutes Is plenty of time!

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Helen's Hill Estate, 16 Ingram Rd, Lilydale, Victoria 3140 Australia

We don't always go here, but if we do their wines are really good! Arguably the best Shiraz/Syrah in the area.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: St Huberts Cellar Door, 1 - 3 St Huberts Rd Cnr Maroondah Hwy, Coldstream, Victoria 3770 Australia

Here we have lunch. The restaurant is called 'Quarters' and is located on St Huberts Estates winery.
The entire menu is QR coded or you can order with wait staff.
Lunch is not included in the price so this would be at your own expense.
The food is incredible here. I would allow anything from 10-40$ here, depending on how hungry you are. There is something for everyone here. Pizzas, burgers, steaks, ribs, vegan dishes, celiac friendly, creative salads,...really nice food!

The venue itself is really impressive and they also have a cellar door to do wine tastings and whiskey tasting, as well as an Indigenous art museum all done by First Nations people around Victoria.

We often split the group up after lunch for those that want to explore the venue...or those that want to try Chandon.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Four Pillars Distillery, 2a Lilydale Rd, Healesville, Victoria 3777 Australia

Here we try 4 of their Gins on a paddle, with tonic or soda to mix with it whilst being told how hey make it in their new impressive distillery. That said, if you don't like gin or want something else, we can get you any type of drink there. You can even cross the road and we can arrange a private wine tasting at Payton and Jones if you really want to keep the day Wine focused.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Watts River Brewing, 7 Hunter Rd, Healesville VIC 3777, Australia

Instead of Four Pillars gin, we offer the chance to go to the local brewery where you can try 4 beers on their beer paddle. Small local craft brewery

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery, 35 Old Healesville Rd Cnr Melba Highway, Yarra Glen, Victoria 3775 Australia

Here at this very scenic spot, you will have a private tasting of 10-12 chocolates over 25 minutes. You'll then have time to buy any chocolate you like as well as take advantage of the ice cream section of the factory.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Yarrawood Estate, 1275 Melba Hwy, Yarra Glen VIC 3775, Australia

If people are not interested in the chocolate tasting, we offer the chance to drive people to this winery which around the corner from the chocolate place. This would be simply a round of drinks but would be at your own expense. Its simply a nice scenic way to end the day if you want to keep drinking.

Duration: 1 minute

Stop At: Payten & Jones Wines, 3 Lilydale Rd, Healesville, Victoria 3777 Australia

If you want to keep your day wine-focused, we offer the chance to get a wine tasting here INSTEAD OF FOUR PILLARS GIN. Arguably the best wine of the day!

Duration: 1 minute

Stop At: Yarra Valley Dairy, 70-80 McMeikans Rd, Yering, Victoria 3770 Australia

This place is a bit of a 'maybe'.
We tend to find that we don't regularly go here unless a lot of people want to sacrifice an alcohol place on the day. It is very close to a winery we frequently go to and we can occasionally split the group up. We actually supply cheese platters at the second winery which is the exact same cheese that you could get from this place.

Here we supply cheese platters of 3 goats cheeses and 3 cows Cheeses as well as crackers (GF). It's a quick stop..normally only 20 minutes.. It's also a cafe and a place you can buy lesser known wines of the Yarra.

Duration: 1 minute
