Famous for cool climate wines, the Yarra Valley was chosen as a prime vineyard location by French Champagne house Moët & Chandon in 1986. Domaine Chandon is one of the region's finest vineyards, and the sweeping views from its Green Point Room encourage you to linger over an excellent lunch and Domaine Chandon wines.

De Bortoli Winery shot to prominence for its botrytis Semillons, and its popular and acclaimed restaurant. Cheese aficionados should visit the cheese room, where ripe cheese is matched with De Bortoli wines, and can be consumed on the balcony.

If you appreciate a game of golf followed by a glass of local wine and a meal prepared by an award-winning chef, put the Sebel Heritage at the top of your list. With two championship courses, two bars, a cafe and the noted Bella Restaurant, the Sebel offers a great day of golfing.

There are more than 90 wineries with cellar doors in the Valley. Place your wine itinerary and tastings in the hands of local experts to see the best.
