  • • Farmhouse visit and sample local produce at Gateway Estate Yarra Valley

Gateway Estate also houses an indoor ‘U-pick’ strawberry indoor hydroponic greenhouse with strawberry picking available most of the year round. Also sample the Gateway strawberry liqueurs and ports and try the famous ‘strawberry shot-cake’!
  • • Experience the rustic charm of a cider ale house at Napoleone Brewery & Cider House
    It’s not all about wine at Autopia Tours. At this rustic, inviting cider house, you’ll be served a generous tasting of four ciders and ales. If you haven’t tried cider before, be prepared for tingling tastebuds. The Yarra Valley has been the home of cider since the 1900s, and the Napoleone family have been in the game for three generations. Using only premium estate-grown apples and pears, the ciders you’ll sample here are made onsite with 100% fresh juice. Nothing else, no concentrates, no additives, and they’re even gluten free!
  • • 2 course Italian inspired winery lunch at Killara Estate
    After a wine tasting with a view over the valley we will sojourn to the restaurant for our Italian inspired lunch overlooking the vines. First course is shared antipasto plates (with more gourmet delights than your grand-mother’s pantry) followed by a selection of pizzas and pastas with a variety of wine available to purchase
  • Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery
    Indulge on free chocolate while you watch the Belgian and French chocolatiers handcraft over 250 different chocolate and truffle varieties. You’re sure to walk away with something delicious from the ‘Great Wall of Chocolate’. The range of sweet treats includes chocolates infused with fruits and nuts from the Chocolaterie’s orchard of cherries, plums, apricots, citrus, almonds and more. And on a hot day, what could be better than luscious home-made ice cream?
