A popular spot for day-tripping Melbournians, the beautiful Yarra Valley offers an abundance of tasty pleasures to suit any palette. Your full-day food and wine tour begins with morning pickup at your Melbourne hotel. Relax on the comfortable minicoach as you enjoy a short and scenic drive toward your first stop of the day, Gateway Estate Farmhouse.
Upon arrival, head into the greenhouse facilities for a tour and tastings of fresh local produce to learn more about sustainable farming.
Next up is Napoleone Brewery and Ciderhouse where you’ll be served ciders and an ale made onsite at this rustic micro-brewery in the heart of the Yarra Valley. Using only premium estate-grown apples and pears, the ciders you’ll sample here are made onsite with 100-percent fresh juice.
Now that you’ve worked up an appetite, head to Killara Estate Winery for your Italian style lunch. At the estate, taste wines and appetizers at the picturesque vineyards of Killara Estate in the upper Yarra Valley.
Continue your day on a sweet note with a visit to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-Creamery. This bright and cheerful shop dishes up homemade ice cream and more than 150 kinds of chocolate. Sample some of the sugary treats and take a stroll through the shop’s charming sculpture gardens.
With your belly full, enjoy the ride back to Melbourne, where you’ll be dropped off at back your hotel in the evening.
