Yarra Valley is Melbourne’s favourite getaway destination and home to the freshest local produce and trendiest craft. We aim to always keep our tours energetic by heading off the beaten track. Below is a sample itinerary of what a perfect date with us might look like.
"Bring your sunnies, we'll do the rest"
Please meet in front of St Paul's Cathedral (located on corner of Flinders Street & Swanston Street). Wait near the near the steps area on the Flinders Street side.
We aim to leave on time so please be considerate to others and plan your trip in advance.
Head via a scenic route to the Yarra Valley taking in the views of a relaxing countryside and the mountain ranges that encircle the lower flat plains. There are many spotting opportunities of native wildlife like Kangaroos and Wedge Tail Eagles that call this place their home.
Arrive fresh off the bus at your first destination, Domaine Chandon. Here you'll experience a champagne breakfast with their exclusive "Sparkling Selection" tasting in a private room with a Chandon host.
Please note that the “Sparkling Selection” tasting requires a minimum of 8 people on tour. If there are less we’ll indulge in the “splash” tasting which is also great!
Then make your way across the Yarra Valley floor towards the edge of the mountains to a picturesque winery for a seated wine tasting session with the wine-maker. This intimate experience includes a shared meat & cheese charcuterie board for you to nibble on while enjoying the single-vineyard wines. Following this wine appreciation, you get to choose a wine of your choice to enjoy with a main course lunch. We finish the dinning session with a coffee or tea.
Next visit the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice-creamery famous for their generous scoops of ice-cream and indulgent chocolates. Be tempted to spoon copious amounts of complimentary chocolate buttons upon entry.
We continue our drive to the final cellar-door located on a hill overlooking the vineyard. Take a moment to appreciate the wonderful panoramic scenery of the Yarra Valley from this height. Then be delighted by a platter of artisan cheeses with breads and crackers throughout your wine tastings.
Quench any remaining thirst at Napoleone Brewery and Ciderhouse. Enjoy a full glass of either a craft beer (try either their pale ale or lager) or a cider (apple & pear). You may take a wander through the buildings attach to the microbrewery like the Meletos bar & Providore gift and flower shop.
Good things are best enjoyed in moderation. It's time to dance back onto the bus and head home to Melbourne.
Arrive back at Melbourne and be dropped off on the side of Federation Square. Thank you for doing the Weekend Lovers Tour with us! Make sure to give us a high-5 on TripAdvisor or Google.
