Evergreen Winery Tours has been operating in the Yarra Valley since 2001. Geoff Cooper, the host, has a simple but effective philosophy on what an exceptional Tours should entail, they should be small, personal and give clients an insight into Australian hospitality.
Evergreen Winery Tours allow clients a personal experience of wines and winemaking.
The tours visit the smaller high quality boutique wineries where clients usually meet the owners and winemakers and are given as much time as they need to make their visit both enjoyable and educational.
Clients are transported in a luxury Statesman sedan, not the usual coach, van or people mover used by most tour companies. This vehicle ensures that guests enjoy the personal experience Evergreen Winery Tours wishes to provide. The maximum number of people on a tour is four which also ensures personal attention.
Tours include a full day tour with lovely two course a la carte restaurant lunch, visiting five wineries, the "Wine Buff's Tour" includes a three course lunch, with wine with each course, sparkling wine at Chandon and exclusive use of the car, the "Balloon and Barrel tour" includes a balloon flight, full breakfast with sparkling wine and an all day winery tour.
A half day tour with lunch is also available, this includes visits to four wineries with the same lunch as the full day tour but begins at noon, not 10-30am.
As an alternative clients may design tours to meet their own needs on an hourly basis.
