Stockdale & Leggo Ringwood on their half-day Xmas Break Up Tour

Wendy was in charge of organising the office Christmas break up outing for the team at Stockdale & Leggo’s Yarra Ranges and Ringwood office and she booked a half-day tour of the Yarra Valley to celebrate with her colleagues.

John collected them at 11am from Lilydale train station and drove them out to St Huberts winery for their first wine tasting of the day which they thoroughly enjoyed.  A little tipple is always lovely before lunch, which was at Healesville’s much-loved Innocent Bystander, a winery within the town.  The group got to enjoy a wine tasting (served from copper taps like pulling a draft beer) before settling in for a scrumptious lunch of wood fired pizza and paella.

After lunch they were after something sweet so John drove them over to the ever-popular Chocolaterie just outside Yarra Glen where you can see the chocolatiers from Belgium hard at work making chocolate, for some free chocolate samples and suddenly out came the Christmas outfits and reindeer antlers!!

We filmed a quick team Christmas video of the group and then off came the antlers and it was back to sampling more that the Yarra Valley has to offer, with a visit to the Yarra Valley Dairy to try some of their hand made cheeses made onsite.

We finished off their half day tour at Punt Road with a final wine tasting at their cellar door before driving the merry band of colleagues back to Lilydale for them to catch their train.

The group all agreed it was a great way to spend time together out of the office celebrating a good year and breaking up ready for Christmas.

Half day private wine tours are fun and it’s surprising how much we can fit in for you.  Get in touch via our questionnaire if you’re interested in finding out more about a private half day tour of the Yarra Valley – we’re open over the Christmas and New Year period (just closed on the public holidays).
