While the Yarra Valley is a world-renowned wine growing region, wine is only half the story of this gourmet wonderland. This tour provides a fine blend of the very best of the region’s wines and other gourmet produce.
Our guide to Yarra Valley Gourmet Tour
Your gourmet food and wine tour of the Yarra Valley starts with an exclusive farm gate visit at Yarra Farm Fresh for a palate-cleansing fruit experience. Yarra Farm Fresh specializes in bringing the best of the Yarra Valley into their farm gate store. Learn about what's in season, and sample a range of locally grown fruits and hand-made products. This is your chance to discover the very best of the region's produce and gourmet products all under one roof.
Next, we travel to one of the valley’s true icons, Balgownie Estate where we’ll enjoy a tasting of their extensive range of quality wines. We’ll learn how to swirl, sniff, and slurp like true connoisseurs while tasting some of the very finest cool climate wines.
The amazing produce at the Yarra Valley Dairy will truly melt in your mouth. The cheeses here are truly stunning and will have your tastebuds working overtime.
Your lunch is at the fabulous Rochford Wines where you can choose from four different main meals, with a glass of wine and tea or coffee. Take some time to explore the gift shop, or perhaps climb the spiral staircase to enjoy the panoramic views from Rochford’s famous lookout tower.
After lunch, make your way to one of Australia’s great wineries and be a member of the Australian Tourism Hall of Fame, Yering Station. Home of Victoria’s oldest vineyards, first planted in 1838, the wines here are of exceptional quality and a tasting is not to be missed.
Before returning to Melbourne, visit the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie where you’re welcomed with an exclusive chocolate tasting, displays of thousands of premium chocolates, and European chocolatiers at work handcrafting their chocolate creations.
You will commence the journey home knowing that you have enjoyed the very best that the Yarra Valley has to offer.
Daily, year round.
Departure time is between 8.00am - 9.00am.
