Summary of The Day: While the Yarra Valley is a world-renowned wine growing region, wine is only half the story of this gourmet wonderland and our tour provides a fine blend of the very best of the region's wines and other gourmet produce.
We start the day with an exclusive farm gate visit at Wild About Fruit, for a palate-cleansing fruit experience. At this boutique third-generation orchard we sample a range of freshly made juices and learn about the patented leading-edge technology that creates each glass of goodness. We will also sample and learn about the wide range of farm-fresh apples grown on the property.
Next we travel to one of the valley's true icons, De Bortoli Wines where we'll enjoy a tasting from their extensive range of quality wines. We'll learn how to swirl, sniff and slurp like true connoisseurs, while tasting some of the very finest cool climate wines.
The amazing produce at the Coldstream Dairy will truly melt in your mouth. In an exclusive presentation we'll learn a little about cheese-making while sampling the freshly made cheeses, and will also taste a wide range of other artisan Yarra Valley produce including chutneys, relishes, jams & oils.
Our lunch is at the fabulous Rochford Wines where our guests will enjoy three courses in one with an exclusive "made to order" tasting experience. Three wines will also be paired with the guests' selection for lunch. We have worked with Rochford's remarkable team to create a unique dining experience for our guests.
The true epicurean heart of the Yarra Valley region is the town of Healesville. After lunch we'll take some time to explore its finest gourmet gems including Yarra Valley Pasta and the delightful Kitchen Butcher. Those with a sweet tooth will truly salivate over the handmade goodies at Crumbs Gourmet Biscuits and the inimitable Kennedy & Wilson Chocolates, as served in Qantas First Class. Perhaps enjoy another wine tasting at Giant Steps Winery.
Before returning to Melbourne, we visit the premium Coombe - The Melba Estate for another sampling of the cool-climate wines produced in this region.
You will commence the journey home knowing that they have truly enjoyed the very best that the Yarra Valley has to offer.
