15 colleagues from Eastern Health, Ringwood East chose a Tour the Valley wine tour for their Christmas breakup on Saturday and had a ball.
Helen & Joey Estate, one of the Yarra Valley's newer wineries in Coldstream, was their first stop for a wine tasting with Steve and Catherine. They enjoyed the wine so much they bought heaps to take home and loved the view from the deck.
John, one of the group, decided to sip his glass of wine up on the back of the unicorn - can't be too many people who can claim they've drunk wine whilst sitting on a unicorn!!
On leaving H&J's winery, they headed to St Huberts, one of the oldest wineries here in the Yarra Valley, for another wine tasting and Dominic behind the bar was very knowledgeable and the group were impressed with their reds and dessert wines.
With time for one more tasting before lunch, John took the group to Yering Station, one of the big name wineries here in the Yarra Valley where they enjoyed their tasting and loved the buildings.
And then it was lunchtime, and John had booked them a big table at Tokar Estate for a late lunch.
They loved their lunch and wine tasting and took their wine out onto the deck so they could sit and enjoy the view in the sunshine. It was so enjoyable sitting out at Tokar that they asked if they could stay on at Tokar and relax and enjoy the wine and conversation rather than setting off for a another winery, which they did very happily and John then returned them all to Ringwood East at 5pm.
They all had a great time and were thrilled with their decision to have a personalised and private winery tour for their breakup and of course choosing Tour the Valley!!!
