Having your own private tour of the Yarra Valley is the perfect way to build in a bit of romance!  Aleksija and Angus are a gorgeous young couple who were visiting from NSW and staying at Healesville Apartments and John picked them up and spent the day with them touring around our region on their own personalised private tour.

Yering Station was their first port of call, where they enjoyed a great wine tasting (so much so they bought a selection of reds AND white) and had a tour over the wine production area and gardens.

Then to de Bortoli’s for a cheese and wine tasting and they loved both so much they bought a bit of both – and why not!!  John whisked them to the Chocolaterie for a spot of chocolate indulgence where they again purchased some to enjoy later.  And all this before lunch!

Tokar Estate put on a beautiful lunch and wine tasting and the pair absolutely loved the view from the balcony.  Just to shake things up a bit, John took them after lunch to Meletos for a Napoleon cider tasting which they really enjoyed and John showed them aroundStones next door showing them The Stables, the Chapel and restaurant with its raised roof.

It was such a beautiful day John did a little detour to Selovers Lookout up at Maroondah Dam with its stunning vista of the dam and surrounding mountains.  And it brought back gorgeous memories for Alex & Angus who had their first kiss by a dam, so they had another one for old time’s sake!

They finished off their tour with a visit to Innocent Bystander for a wine tasting and tour of the winery and cellar – reminding us how lucky we are as a region to have so many incredible places on our doorstep.

We hope Alex and Angus enjoyed the rest of their stay in the valley and enjoyed their trip down the Great Ocean Road the next day.
