What’s better than a wine tour? Two wine tours!
Private Wine Tour
Thursday 15th and Friday 16th June, 2017
This group of friends from NSW decided to go on not one wine tour but two wine tours, incorporating two of victoria’s cool climate wine regions – the beautiful Mornington Peninsula and the magnificent Yarra Valley.
Starting with a winery tour on the Mornington Peninsula on the Thursday followed by a tour of the Yarra Valley on the Friday.
Some of the beautiful wineries visited were:
Crittenden Estate for a private wine flight tasting.
Yabby Lake Winery in Tuerong for a cellar door visit and wine tasting
Rare Hare (Home of Willow Creek Wines) for a delicous lunch and barrel room wine tasting and tour of Jackalope Hotel
Port Phillip Estate for a cellar door wine tasting and amazing views
Polperro for a quick tour of the property
Domaine Chandon for a quick look at the wine making facility and amazing gardens.
Dominique Portet for a cellar door wine tasting
Levantine Hill for a wine tasting followed by lunch at Ezard restaurant
Four Pillars Gin Distillery for a spirit tasting
Yering Station for a cellar door tasting
TurraWarra Estate for a quick visit before heading back to Melbourne
“Two Days of Wine Touring”
“We hired Ric to take us on a private Wine Tour of Mornington Peninsula and then the next day, to the Yarra Valley. He picked us up in Melbourne at our breakfast restaurant and dropped us back to Melbourne. During the day he was very flexible, allowing us to choose where we wanted to go, but he also gave us a lot of advice. We ate at fabulous lunch destinations and tasted wine at some really beautiful vineyards. It was a great couple of days. Thanks Ric” – by Michele B, June 2017
