Two lovely couples Mark & Stephanie and Calvin & Donna were up in the Yarra Valley to see the awesome Stevie Nicks and Chrissie Hynde in concert at Rochford Winery, and rang on the Sunday to see if we could take them on a private wine tour
. And by 11.30am we’d collected them from their gorgeous Healesville accommodation Graceburn Gardens and taken them to Four Pillars Gin Distillery to get their tour off to a cracking start with a gin tasting hotly followed by a gin cocktail chaser!
Next we drove them up the fabulous long driveway to Helen & Joeys so they could meet Bruce the unicorn – and distressingly Barry and Beryl had disappeared and poor John did not dare ask, for fear of their reply!! Hopefully they are on holiday somewhere lovely or gone to visit some other unicorns and will be back soon. The group had a really lovely wine tasting enjoying the glorious weather out on the deck and of course hopped on Brucey for a quick photo opp!
So what do you try next if you’ve sampled the Yarra Valley’s award wining gin, and wines? Yarra Valley cider & beer of course
– for which we headed to Meletos where the boys tucked into cider and beer tasting paddles and the girls enjoyed some more wine.
We finished their day’s touring with a wine tasting at Innocent Bystander where John left them to walk down to the Healesville Hotel later for dinner.
