We received a call on Saturday from Myers Creek Cascades Luxury Accommodation in Healesville enquiring – could we do a private full day tour for two guests the following day.
Pippa and Justin were celebrating their 10th Wedding Anniversary, so we put together a really varied itinerary for them, showcasing just how much the Yarra Valley has to offer, and all at the last minute.
John collected them on Sunday at 10am and started their tour at Healesville’s Innocent Bystander for a wine tasting on tap – where they loved the bubbles, particularly the Moscato, and purchased several bottles to enjoy later.
Next he whisked them off to Watts River Brewery in Healesville for a cider and beer tasting and Watts River Blonde proved to be the favourite, so once again purchases were made and stashed away in the tour van to be taken home.
John then took them off to St Huberts, one of the oldest wineries in the valley, for a wine tasting and then called in at Immerse Yarra Valley as they were married there 10 years ago and thought they would like to have lunch there. Unfortunately, Immerse were booked out with a wedding but Monica, the Manager, gave them a lovely bottle of wine as an anniversary present to help with the disappointment of not being able to lunch there.
They decided to try their luck just a little bit further up the road at De Bortoli’s winery and while they were having a wine tasting, managed to book in for lunch. The pair loved their relaxing lunch and really enjoyed kicking back and chatting about the last 10 years!
After lunch, John set off down the road to Balgownie Estate, for another wine tasting and more purchases, and rounded off their tour at Greenstone Vineyard for a wine tasting with Lyn, and that fabulous view, and then drove them back to relax at Myers Creek Cascades and perhaps sample some of their boot load of purchases!
