excellent tour. Took us th large famous (but not necessarily good) wineries as well as very niche but makes amazingly good wine wineries. Our guy knew what he was talking about and really knew the people, their difficulties and the history behind Yarra Valley and it made our trip special!

We had a fabulous day. Bill our guide with Epicurean Food and Wind Tours was a very nice man and had some great tales to tell. He explained a lot about the countryside and the wineries. All the wines we tasted were delicious and the lunch at Tokar Estate was one of the nicest meals were heave eaten. It was a good time of the year to go as the leaves on the vines were golden and we were blessed with a lovely sunny day.
