Yarra Valley Wine Tour Itinerary

The Wurundjeri people called the Yarra River “Birrarung” which means ‘river of mists’. You will be enchanted by this mystical valley and its gourmet delights. This Yarra Valley Wine Tour offers a very unique Yarra Valley wine tasting experience.

Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-Creamery

Indulge on free chocolate while you watch the Belgian and French Chocolateries handcraft over 250 different chocolate and truffle varieties at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery. See the Great Wall of Chocolate and spoil yourself with the range of sweet treats including chocolates infused with nuts and fruits. These fruits are all grown in the Chocolaterie’s own orchard and include cherries, plums, apricots and citrus. And what better than a home-made ice-cream on a hot day. This is a must destination for any sweet-tooth.


Three Boutique Wineries

While the chocolate is great, it’s the wine that we’re really here for! We’ll stop at three local Yarra Valley wineries for tastings, where you can sample the delicious range of varieties and blends made right here in the valley! One of Australia’s top cool climate regions, the Yarra Valley has perfected the aromatic pinot noir and light chardonnay. You’ll also find sophisticated sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, shiraz and more. Don’t forget to grab some bottles to take home!


Watts River Brewery

Wine is not the only drink produced in the Yarra Valley, it’s also home to some top breweries and distilleries! To sample some of the excellent craft beers to come out of the region, we’ll head to family-owned Watts River Brewery. Meet the passionate brewers and hear how international and local flavours have shaped and influenced their own brewing style.


Free Time in Healesville

For lunch, we let you choose! We’ll make a stop in Healesville, a charming rural town in the heart of the Yarra Valley. Here, you can wander the leafy streets to select from a number of cafes, restaurants and pubs for a delicious local meal. Once you’re satisfied, take some extra time to peruse the local boutiques and galleries. If you fancy picking up some regional produce to take home, call into Healesville Harvest, or swing by Alchemy Distillery for something a bit stronger.
