Tyson and his friends from Sydney contacted us, as a friend had been on a previous tour with us and recommended Tour the Valley as the best personalised Yarra Valley tour company to help him celebrate his 40th Birthday in the Yarra Valley.
We picked the friends up from Melbourne where they were staying in the CBD and made our first stop Chandon for a sparkling tasting, then dropped by Yering Station for a look around as it's such an iconic name here in the Yarra Valley. Being Easter weekend it was hectic at the cellar door, so we set off for St Huberts, one of the original wineries to plant vines here in the Yarra Valley where the group had a great tasting and photo opportunities aplenty under the elm trees.
Next was Coldstream Hills, owned and made famous by James Halliday and Roland impressed them with his wine knowledge. After a superb tasting we drove the short distance to Tokar Estate winery for a lovely 2-course lunch and a relaxing catch up over good food and just as good wine.
Before heading back to Melbourne we popped into Greenstone Vineyards to relax on their deck with their staggering view, a great spot for a wine tasting followed by a great cheese platter washed down with some beautiful glasses of wine.
We dropped them back to the city by after a very impressive day in the Yarra Valley and left them looking forward to returning. We hope they'll call us when they do come back for more, as there are so many more top shelf big name wineries and cellar doors in the Yarra Valley we can take them to.
