Hidden Secrets Tours Melbourne takes you on a Progressive Degustation Walk (formally Sommelier's City Walk).

Passion for food and wine is a tradition in this city; chefs are celebrities, and wine masters are finding a voice. Many of Melbourne's wine focused restaurants are off the main streets, where design of the dining experience is as important as the skills in the kitchen.

Enjoy an early evening walk discovering three unique restaurants and learn of the sommeliers' influences on menus and cellaring choices. More than a wine tasting, this is a night to indulge in just a few of Melbourne's many epicurean establishments, and explore a relationship with the often silent hero's of the wine industry.

Generous wine samples, food tastings, and special offers included.

  • Evening walking tour
    As the tour starts, many are heading home, our evening starts with a setting of the scene, and then we move to the first venue, we look for quirks about Melbourne that appeals to locals and visitors, and as venues vary, each evening may have a different tour design. Always plenty to learn about Melbourne, but a lovely seated dining experience, makes this tour not rushed.
