Day 1: Yarra Valley Wine & Local Produce Tour
Calling all tastebud explorers for a one-day perfect combo, of travel and taste, as we sample our way through the stunningly exquisite Yarra Valley. While wine is a big part of that historically, these days you can delight in a plethora of options including fresh local produce, chocolate and learning about the process of Australian winemaking. As we get to sip award-winning vino and ciders, whilst chatting with the person who actually made it whilst being surrounded by spectacular landscapes and vineyard views. Our day starts with an indulgent feast for your senses, at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice-Creamery with an exclusive behind-the-scenes chocolate tasting. Over 250 handcrafted chocolates are available for purchase, as well as a variety of free chocolate samples to enjoy. Guests will have the pleasure of visiting three boutique wineries and cellar-door estates, such as St Huberts, Yering Farm Wines, and Medhurst Wines. In some cases, our itinerary and winery stops will need to be modified due to unforeseen circumstances, such as group sizes, special events and cellar-door closures. We’ve added free time in Healesville, for guests to grab lunch and explore the gateway town to the Yarra Valley. This tour has been designed for our guests to be able to see the Yarra Valley through local eyes rather than being shuttled from one winery to another. Whilst in Healesville, we highly recommend exploring the local shops, cafes, and restaurants or you can even pop into Four Pillars Gin Distillery, Matilda Bay Brewery or Alchemy Distillers for a cheeky extra tasting if you fancy (at guest's own expense). This unique wine tour explores all the treasures of the Yarra Valley district in a relaxed small group environment and away from the tourist masses. Highlighting some of our favourite premium wineries and local produce for everyone to enjoy. Giving our guests the opportunity to meet the maker along the way and truly enjoy what this world-class region has to offer. Driving Distance: 140km.
