Enjoy fine food and wine on this leisurely paced tour by Vinetrekker of the Yarra Valley. Only one hour from Melbourne, the beautiful, lush Yarra Valley is recognised internationally as a premium, cool-climate region known for its elegant wines.
Travel via the 'scenic route', through the undulating and bush laden north-eastern suburbs of Eltham, Kangaroo Ground and Christmas Hills. The first stop is at the De Bortoli Winery at Dixons Creek. As Italian as Domaine Chandon is French, it's a great start with superbly flavoured cheeses that compliment the sparkling, table and dessert wines. A short drive away is Yering Station where a pre-lunch wine-tasting in an historic 1859 building surrounded by local artworks and produce would precede lunch in the stunning Wine Bar and Restaurant. After a relaxing lunch head to the very famous and very French Domaine Chandon. Choose from a range of premium sparkling wines (methode champenoise) while nibbling on cheese and bread. The final stop for the day is at the Coldstream Hills Winery at Coldstream. Established by one of Australia's leading authors and commentators on wine, James Halliday the elevated position of the cellar door takes in delightful late afternoon views across the valley.
