Yarra Valley Wine Tasting Tour - Wine, Cheese, Ciders, Picnic, Live music & Kangaroos!

We do the Yarra the way you want it! Not pretentious, no boring guides, no schedule...We decide where we go based on everyone's input at the beginning. For people who don't take wine too seriously!

Highlights

  • Visit 4 wineries in the Yarra Valley
  • Small group - maximum 11 guests
  • Picnic at a scenic winery with guide playing acoustic guitar
  • We make up the itinerary on the day based on everyones likes and dislikes with wine.

We'll pick you up in the morning (9:45) and mainly focus on everyone getting to know each other. We get everyone to add to a Spotify playlist so we have some tunes and spend the first hour just chatting! The key is to find out what everyone's wants from this trip. Do we have wine experts? Do we have carefree wine lovers, Do we have alcohol lovers? Lets adjust the day accordingly... We can accommodate everything from the wine genius to the first timer!

Feel free to BYO drinks for the drive in and out, it's that kind of laid back trip.

We will go to 4 places, each consisting of 6-7 tastings. I have a bunch of wineries that I know you'll love and will go to them if no-one is too picky, however, I make sure I listen to the group.

Everything we do on the trip is discussed by the group in the morning. The group will have options to choose from including 50-70 different wineries, cheese factories, and chocolate factories, cider houses, restaurants, and breweries. We WILL go to 4 of these places, however, if we choose the gin distillery, brewhouse or a restaurant there may be added expenses (no more than $5 each).

However, if you just want to come along and put your trust in me, we will visit 4 four unique wineries, all with a point of difference, with a 45 minute stop at a very scenic one for some snacks that I encourage you to bring along. there will be a few cheese platters supplied by me to enjoy with drinks to purchase. I also play guitar and sing so we'll sit back and relax and enjoy snacks, wine, scenery and music as a group. (Normally the highlight of the trip).

We'll also go for a search for Kangaroos in a secret spot I know of.

Will be back by 5pm.

Yarra Valley winery tour

A fun day out, that didn't leave Melbourne at a ridiculously early time. We went to three wineries, a cheese shop and the chocolate factory. The staff at the cellar doors were knowledgeable, and the wines were tasty. I liked the flexibility of the tour, although I wouldve liked to have squeezed in an extra winery but there wasn't time. The unicorn winery should be a standard one though and not just a back up, imo. Thanks for a fun day out Drew!

Excellent Day Customised to Us

Excellent service organised to fit our expectations for the day. Given the size of our group, and being the only ones for that day, we were offered a lot of choices and flexibility for the day. This meant we gave Andrew an idea of what we wanted and he delivered accordingly. Highly recommend this particular tour, and Andrew provided great service for our day.
