Our wine tour is a social, down to earth and laid back trip that offers great wines, gin, cider and more..and we have a laugh doing it!

We'll pick you up in the morning and focus on everyone getting to know each other. We get everyone to add to a Spotify playlist so we have some tunes and spend the first hour just chatting!

Every tour is different. Everything we do on my trip is discussed by the group in the morning. We will give you options to choose from including many different wineries, Distilleries, a cheese factory, a chocolate factory, Cideries, restaurants and breweries. 
However if you just want to come along and put your trust in us, we will visit 4 or 5 unique venues, all with a point of difference.

Generally we do 2 wineries, a restaurant, a distillery and either a chocolate place or a champagne place.

We don't include lunch in the price, so we go to a restaurant (Quarters) where you can order/pay what you want to eat/drink.

We'll also go for a search for Kangaroos!

What To Expect

Yarra Valley
We will visit 4 wineries, a cheese factory and a chocolate and ice cream factory. We like to firstly understand what everyone likes and doesn't like, what people want form the day.... and then make the itinerary up from there. It will include a mixture of the following choices

6 hours • Admission Ticket Included

This place is a really cut, small and rustic family run winery that offers amazing views, wines and in our opinion the best Pink Lady Apple Cider on the planet! Andrew, the owner and guide, normally likes to play his guitar at this spot whilst you taste.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Helen & Joey Estate-Yarra Valley
Try 6-7 wines here with incredible views.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Helen's Hill Estate
6-7 Tastings. Only sometimes come here if other places are unavailable.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery
Try 12 styles of the best chocolate Yarra Valley has to offer. This place can be replaced with another alcohol spot if the entire group would prefer to keep drinking, otherwise this is our default final spot. Ice cream to enjoy here too!

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Yarra Valley Dairy
Try 5 types of cheeses. Not always included in every tour due to the venue having restrictions on group sizes.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Four Pillars Distillery
Gin paddles of 4 gins as well as tonic or soda water to mix with.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

St Huberts Cellar Door
Here we go the restaurant, 'Quarters', where everyone can order and pay whatever they want to. There is also an indigenous art museum here to explore. There is an incredible cellar door here too.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Domaine Chandon
We tend to go here if we think the groups is more of a drinking group rather than a chocolate tasting group. We normally end here. We simply shout a few of bottles of their best stuff for everyone to enjoy with the very scenic view.

Yarra Valley gem tour

Thanks Drew for a well organised tour with laughs and great wineries. Loved Chandon and St Huberts. If you are looking for a laid back tour with flexibility this is for you.
10/10 would recommend!

Definitely one of the best wine tours I have been on!! Andrew helped us break the ice from the get go making it feel like it was a wine tour with a group of friends rather than strangers! We were able to do every thing we wanted had the best time!!
Great Experience

One of the most enjoyable trip here in Victoria :) Love the way he (tour leader) created the trip that are not cliche at all. Would like to travel like a guy like this for more times in the future
Best Day Ever!
Erika_B, 11-12-2022
Thank you Andrew for an amazing day out in Yarra Valley!

It was relaxed and you were fantastic at seeing what everyone wanted to do/see and adapting the day to us.

I highly recommend any of Andrew’s tours to anyone looking for something outside of a rigid tour and spend the day with Andrew and other like minded people who just want to relax, have fun, and enjoy the beautiful scenery and of course the fabulous wines (and other beverages) cheese and chocolates!
A Must-do.

This is a must-do if you're traveling through Melbourne. The wines, foods, and views were all fantastic. I really enjoyed learning about the region, and the different individual winery processes.
Superb visit to wineries & chocolate factory - unique guide!

The host / guide (Andrew) was fantastic - big character, an entertainer and took us to the group’s agreed destinations with priority entries. Brilliant
Good value, fun day, but long
JenMaree_T, 10-12-2022
The first two boutique wineries were very beautifully situated, our driver ‘Murph’ was very friendly and fun. The lunch stop was a sight to behold with a huge amount of seating and incredibly fast service, the prawn pizza a highlight. The gin distillery was also an eye opener and I liked it more than I thought I would (wine drinker!). Minor points were that we were late leaving Yarra and so ended up in long traffic delays, we were also dropped off at a different place than we started and it took me quite a bit of time and stress to find my way to where I needed to be. It ended up being a much longer day that expected.
