What to Expect

The Yarra Valley is Victoria's oldest wine region, dating back to 1838, and has garnered a global reputation for its chardonnay and pinot noir. It's also known for its local breweries, artisan cider producers, and the best gin from Four Pillars Distillery. This is the perfect day out to explore this incredible area. 

 

Depart Melbourne in your small group at 10:00 am, driving east to the Yarra Valley. Even though the region has a rich history of viticulture and winemaking that goes back 150 years, it has only been in the past 15 years that it has once again come to the forefront as a significant wine and tourism destination.

 

The first vineyard, Yering Station, is the oldest in the Yarra Valley, established in 1938 by the pioneering Ryrie brothers. The large and welcoming cellar door is housed in the original winery building, and the staff will take you on a personalised wine journey, matching your tastes and preferences to the perfect drop. 

 

Next, it's off to Coombe Yarra Valley. This unique property was once the home of world-famous opera singer Dame Nellie Melba and offers you a sophisticated wining and dining experience. The winery is surrounded by seven acres of exquisite established gardens designed by William Guilfoyle.

 

Enjoy a gourmet 2-course lunch with a glass of Coombe Polo Series wine. Then, explore the rest of their range with a wine tasting and cheese platter – a match made in heaven. 

 

The final stop for the day is Four Pillars Distillery in Healesville for a gin tasting. This craft distiller was named the worlds leading gin producer by the IWSC in London in 2019 and 2020. They produce an array of gins, including the Rare Dry, Olive Leaf, and Bloody Shiraz, which uses Yarra Valley grapes.

 

After gin, it's time for the journey back to Melbourne, where you'll arrive at around 6:30 pm.
