Know More about this tour

Travel to the north-east through the bush laden suburbs of Templestowe, Warrandyte and Wonga Park to the Coldstream Hills Winery at Coldstream. Established by James Halliday, one of Australias leading authors and commentators on wine, the wines are beautifully crafted and have enjoyed success at numerous wine shows, especially the chardonnay and pinot noir.

Its then a short drive to the charming Medhurst Vineyard. Established in 1999, the family owned vineyard of 35 acres has a delightful elevation in the foothills of the Warramate Ranges and produces a small selection of elegant table wines.

Visit the very famous and very French Domaine Chandon. Enjoy a tour of the production facilities before settling down to a glass of premium sparkling wine (methode champenoise) while taking in the glorious vista.

It's then on Yering Station for lunch in their stunning Wine Bar Restaurant. With its world class views and cuisine, youll have a full a la carte selection from which to select your main course meal and glass of wine. After lunch, visit the original winery (circa 1859) that features local artworks and produce as well as estate wines to taste.

The final stop for the day is the De Bortoli Winery at Dixons Creek. As Italian as Domaine Chandon is French, its a great end to the day with superbly flavoured cheeses that compliment the sparkling, table and dessert wines.

Our journey home takes us through Steels Creek and Christmas Hills for superb Valley views and the occasional kangaroo.

    Excellent tour, if you prefer a smaller personalised experience with really cool and informative commentary this tour is ideal. Winery selection excellent and the extra attention made one feel quite special.

    This was a small group wine tour that showed not just the range of superb wines in the Yarra Valley but also the range of producer's, from small independents to large industrial sized wineries. The common factor was the sheer quality of wines on offer. We visited Coldstream Hills first with the focus on quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. Next was the small boutique Medhurst winery who had a more individual approach to their winemaking. They might just have been the most popular winery we visited. The followed the impressive Chandon winery with its large beautifully landscaped estate. We had a superb lunch at Yering Station with wine of course, followed by a tasting. Finally there was a cheese and wine tasting at De Bertoli finishing with their lovely dessert wine. Our guide was informative and importantly for us an excellent driver. This was certainly one of the highlights of our Australian trip. Highly recommended.
