Tour Itinerary:

  • 9:45am - Depart from the corner of Swanston & Flinder Street - In front of St Paul’s Cathedral.
  • 11:00am - First visit will be a winery to get that much needed serving of liquid breakfast. Your awesome guide will outline the day's itinerary as well as conduct a fun group activity Dancing-Kangaroo-style.
  • 12pm - On we go to the next winery for a tasting. We focus on giving you a diverse experience, therefore your guide will select the wineries that offers something unique from each other.
  • 12:30pm - Time to cheese out at the Yarra Valley Dairy and try some gourmet goat & cow cheeses - all made on site! (If the Dairy is unavailable such as on Public Holidays or Peak Period then we'll instead serve you a personalised cheese & cracker board at one of the winery tastings. We'll also stop by a local farm-gate so you can enjoy Yarra Valley's fresh seasonal produces.)
  • 1:15pm - An EPIC lunch awaits! We'll visit either a local cafe, brewery or winery venue for a relaxing lunch. Here enjoy each others' company through conversation and shared experience of delicious dishes such as gourmet wood-oven baked pizzas with sides plus complimentary drinks to finish (coffee or tea).
  • 2:30pm - We'll visit the third and last last winery for tasting. More cheers!
  • 3:15pm - For some this is the most anticipated stop - the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice-Creamery. We know it's been an epic day, so why not over indulge in something sweet while we're here.
  • 4pm - We finish off the EPIC Yarra Valley Wine Tour at the Napoleone Brewery & Cidery. Here you have the option to try their thirst-quenching paddles - the apple-pear cider and the pale ale are our personal favourites (Please note, it is at your discretion to sample the tasting paddles). Attached to the brewery is the beautiful Meletos restaurant, featuring open, modern rustic decor and lively ambiance. Take a chance to walk around this lovely venue and reflect on the wonderful experiences you've had today.

Awesome day out in Yarra

Sean did an awesome job throughout the tour, kept us entertained on the way out and all of the stops felt very organized. It was a very friendly and chill tour. Loved the variety of wineries. The only thing I would change is the chocolate stop... that felt very touristy and wish we could've done another winery instead. Overall highly recommend!

Friendly and chill

We were pleasantly surprise by Sean (tour host) energy and friendliness. He liven up the atmosphere and made the wine tour enjoyable. The lunch was amazing with the upgraded menu which also included pasta/salad/risotto, in top of the initially promised pizza. Recommend anyone who wants a one day Yarra Valley Tour to go for it!
