What if I want to do something in addition to cellar door visits and winery tours?
We are most happy to accommodate requests from guests as long as these are acceptable to your fellow guests. There are numerous opportunities to include gourmet produce, gardens, galleries, and even local markets in each of the wine regions we visit. If you have some specific requests, you may want to discuss arranging a private wine tour with us.
Also, our Exclusive Tours and Experiences options include a wide range of activities such as Healesville Sanctuary (Wine & Wildlife Tour), and equestrian training facilities (Thoroughbred Stud Tour).
Do you only operate one-day tours?
No. We also have the two-day Yarra Valley Winery Experience Tour, which features visits to a combination of small and large wineries, two winery luncheons, overnight accommodation in a four-star Bed & Breakfast, two-course dinner with a complimentary bottle of wine, breakfast, and a visit to Healesville Sanctuary.
Additionally, our two-day Romantic Vineyard Escape Tour is a great mid-week or weekend break for couples. This private food and wine tour includes winery visits in both Yarra Valley and Macedon Ranges, two lunches, overnight accommodation in a four-star Bed & Breakfast, two-course dinner with complimentary bottle of wine, and breakfast.
What other regions can be visited besides Melbourne’s “big four”?
We can arrange customised tours of one day, two days or longer for a minimum of 8 people to any of Victoria’s other wine regions (see our Other Victoria Winery Tours page). We have the capacity to match vehicle requirements and special interests to any size group. ‘
Do you do private tours for individuals and couples?
We certainly do. In addition to our two-day Romantic Vineyard Escape Tour for couples, we can provide a customised private wine tour to any of Melbourne’s four nearby wine regions. To discuss your requirements and desires, please contact us during business hours at 1800 946 386.
What kind of private group tours do you do?
All kinds — corporate events and retreats, team building trips, club events, family outings, staff celebrations, birthday parties, pre-wedding celebration, anniversaries, and other special occasions. We will happily create a special day just for you and your group to any of Melbourne’s four major wine growing regions — Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Macedon Ranges and Bellarine Peninsula. We will customise your tour to include the wineries most suited for your group and arrange a winery luncheon that caters to your budget. Morning coffee and tea at a scenic spot can also be included.
