If you enjoy wine, you must take a tour to the Yarra Valley with Epicurean. Our small tour group of seven people was expertly led by the very friendly and generous Bill. First stop was De Bortoli vineyard where we sampled a range of delicious wines expertly matched with various cheeses. This was followed by a real treat to meet and sample wines from Graham Miller, a wine making pioneer and legend in the Yarra Valley. Lunch at Tokar Vineyard was completely superb, and was followed by a visit to two more boutique wineries. Don't go with the big tour bus groups - Epicurean's personalised attention and service together with the great company of a small group made for a perfect day! We'll be back!

So worth it. Everything about this tour was excellent. Our guide was great and being a small group tour meant it felt more like a day out with friends rather than getting lost in the crowd.
