Our wine tour was fantastic - small group, very engaging guide Bill, lots of delicious wine and food... but mostly wine!
The Yarra Valley itself is gorgeous and home to lots of wonderful vineries. We were fortunate to experience a handful of great ones, and meet the owners and winemakers for most. In one, we got really lucky and got to see the mobile bottling truck - not something you see every day!
Besides being engaging, funny, and entertaining, our guide was very helpful in framing the day and helping those of us with limited luggage space decide where to buy bottles to bring home!

Hard to believe what gorgeous vineyards are just beyond the skyscrapers of Melbourne! Our driver Bill was extremely knowledgeable and adapts easily to changes by owners to ensure your day is full and absolutely one of the best of your holiday. Even if you are not a wine drinker, the beauty is not to be missed. We purchased a bottle at each winery as every stop was unique and had something we wanted or a gift for someone on our souvenir list. Wouldn't have missed this excursion for anything!
