Full description
The day begins with hotel pickup in Melbourne and surrounding areas or you can meet the bus at other pickup points along the way. It’s not just about wine in the Yarra Valley. At this rustic cellar door of Napoleone Cider House and Brewery in the heart of the Yarra Valley you'll sample a selection of ciders and ales produced using only premium estate-grown apples and pears. The ciders you’ll sample here are made onsite with 100% fresh apple and pear juice. The cool climate of the Yarra Valley provides perfect growing conditions for stone fruit and the Napoleone family have perfected the art . 

Sit back and enjoy the views as you travel through the vineyards and rolling hills of the Yarra Valley. Each winery has been selected for its excellent cellar door experience and variety of wines. The Yarra Valley is famous for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and you will sample these and other varietals throughout the day. Visit the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie, home to the "Great Wall of Chocolate" and over two hundred chocolate.

Your next stop will be at an Italian winery known as Killara Estate. After a wine tasting with a view over the valley, you will sojourn to the restaurant for a 2-course Italian-inspired lunch overlooking the vines (glass of wine not included with meal).

At Gateway Estate, you’ll sample the best seasonal local produce such as berries, apples and stone fruit as well as a selection of local cheeses and relishes. Gateway Estate also houses an indoor ‘U-pick’ strawberry indoor hydroponic greenhouse with strawberry picking available most of the year round. Also sample the Gateway strawberry liqueurs and ports and try the famous ‘strawberry shot-cake’.
