Wander along its main street featuring many heritage buildings or browse in its quirky craft and designer shops. Taste the produce of craft brewers and artisan cider makers just off the Melba Highway. Tap into thriving artistic culture and heritage in the village of Warburton – a popular mountain escape for Melbournians since the early 20th century - before visiting off-the-beaten-track cellar doors in and around Seville or simply sipping a drink and soaking up the atmosphere in one of the many old country pubs.
Active wine lovers might like to wander, cycle or ride along the 40-km-long Warburton Trail, meandering through magnificent forests, paddocks and bushland. Driving enthusiasts should follow the Reefton Spur to Marysville to experience one of Australia’s most magnificent drives. Wherever you head, there are enticing country villages just tempting you to stop and explore. Nature lovers could take in the spectacular Black Spur rainforest, lose themselves in the Toolangi State Forest or just drive up to Christmas Hills to get a bird’s eye view of the picturesque valley. Foodies will want to peruse the produce at one of the iconic farmer markets, enjoy seasonal produce at the farm gate or dine in one of the region’s many restaurants.
Yarra Valley’s proximity to the cosmopolitan Victorian state capital of Melbourne means that Yarra Valley half-day wine tours are the ideal way to get a feel for the wine region. And we’re sure that once you’ve dipped your toe into the region, you’ll want to come back and experience more.
Yarra wine tours offer you the chance to discover both small boutique wineries as well as some of the biggest names in the wine industry and to experience some famed Aussie hospitality. Pinot and Chardonnay lovers will be in awe at the hand-crafted, premium wines on offer, reflecting the differences in the region’s vineyards and terroir, rather like in the iconic varieties’ Burgundian home. Lovers of big reds will not be disappointed either as the region is also garnering increasing amounts of praise for its elegant herbal Cabernet Sauvignon as well as the region’s rising star, Shiraz, often labeled here as Syrah thanks to its elegance. Or you might indulge in a spot of top-class fizz to toast your Yarra Valley wine tours. Cheap is not an option for the best Yarra Valley wine experience.
