Melbourne: Full-Day Yarra Valley Wine Experience with Lunch

1. Melbourne: Full-Day Yarra Valley Wine Experience with Lunch

Take a full-day wine tour in the Yarra Valley and discover some of the best wineries in Victoria just an hour's drive from Melbourne. Stop at 4 different wineries, taste a range of wines, and savor an included lunch. After pickup from a range of meeting points, depart for the Yarra Valley. Make your first stop at Greenstone, nestled in the base of the Christmas Hills. Begin by learning the art of the swirl, sniff, and slurp from your expert wine guide and then try a range of cellar door tastings. Move on to the next venue, Balgownie Estate, a stylish winery featuring great views and an excellent restaurant. Enjoy lunch with a glass of the estate's wine, then taste more of the wines produced there at the cellar door. In the afternoon, travel through the gorgeous scenery to a smaller boutique winery, Yering Farm. Experience traditionally made wines and see the antique copper wine-making equipment used by the Yarra Valley’s pioneer vignerons. Afterward, make your final stop at Soumah of Yarrah Valey. The cool climate allows this winery to specialize in styles and varieties typical to northern Italy and southeastern France, such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Sample the award-winning wines before returning to Melbourne.

Yarra Valley Hot Air Balloon Flight & Champagne Breakfast

2. Yarra Valley Hot Air Balloon Flight & Champagne Breakfast

Experience the thrill of ascending over a changing landscape at sunrise, suspended in a basket, floating under a spectacular hot air balloon. The cold air hits your cheeks, clouds floating past, the hot flames above warm you up under the morning sky… as you take flight… up, up and float away. Join a spectacular hot air balloon experience with a bird's eye view of the picturesque Yarra Valley (located an hour’s drive from Melbourne) – Victoria’s renowned wine region. Operating 364 days of the year (weather permitting) this once-in-a-lifetime tour experience provides an entirely different perspective of the Yarra Valley, beyond the typical tourist itinerary. Take off on a beautiful hot air balloon flight over the Yarra Valley at sunrise. The Yarra Valley is home to 90 vineyards and 35 wineries, many of which hold a reputation for creating world-class wines. See it from an entirely new perspective as you breeze over the picture postcard landscape. Meet your pilot approximately one hour before sunrise (you will be advised of the exact time and location when you phone the duty pilot the night before your flight). Your pilot will give you a short briefing before being transported to the launch site where you may help with the launch or stand back and take photos of the balloon as it is inflated. Then, climb aboard and away you go gently floating over the Yarra Valley as if you were a cloud. It is truly one of the most magnificently tranquil, picturesque and dream-like experiences you can do. Afterwards, make a final landing, pack the balloon away and have a champagne breakfast (additional cost of $35pp).
