John collected Elle and 11 girlfriends from Avondale Heights, as part of a private Yarra Valley wine tour they were on to celebrate Elle’s 24th Birthday.

The drive out to the Yarra Valley was stunning in brilliant sunshine and the girls loved the drive up to Helen & Joeys cellar door where they were amazed by its views.  What a great spot for their first wine tasting of the day, out on the deck  gazing out over row upon row of vines.  And they couldn’t resist having a photo shoot sitting on Bruce, the unicorn – understandably.

John then drove them to the other side of the valley, over to Steels Creek, beyond Yarra Glen, again, another beautiful scenic drive, to Greenstone Vineyard which has one of the finest views in the entire Yarra Valley. The girls had prime position out on the deck in lovely comfy chairs, where they chatted away and enjoyed their wine tasting looking out across the vines to the hills in the distance.  (Note: if you tour with us on a Sunday in the summer months, you can enjoy live music at Greenstone at their Sunday Sessions, between 1-4pm every Sunday and we’d be happy to include it in your tour)

By now it was time for lunch and John drove them over to Healesville, out to Boat O’Craigo where they enjoyed lunch al fresco, shaded by umbrellas outside enjoying the beautiful weather and view.

After a leisurely lunch, they stopped in at St Huberts cellar door for a final wine tasting for the day.  St Huberts is an interesting winery as it is steeped in history, and on a hot day you can sit out under the colossal elm tree out on the beautiful lawns to relax over your wine tasting.

Elle had a great birthday celebration in the Yarra Valley and it was fun helping her create wonderful memories with her friends.

A Tour the Valley gift voucher would make a great Christmas gift – and we can rustle one up for you in no time at all – so order one today and you/your friends will have it in time for wrapping and putting under the Christmas tree.
