private yarra valley wine tour.
customised full day private wine and food tour
Our private Yarra Valley wine tour has been created to showcase the very best wine and food on offer in the Yarra Valley.
Throughout the region, there are a host of sensational restaurants all serving delicious local produce and of course, there are so many of Australia's highest-rated wines and wineries. All complemented with spectacular views across vineyards, cattle farms and rolling green covered hills.
Our tour works through the palette, starting with a glass of premium sparkling wine at Chandon. We then select wineries to suit your palette based on what we learn from your preferences. The Yarra Valley has so many different varieties of wine and we know all of the wineries including some secret boutique wineries.
We will pick you up from your Melbourne address ( or other by arrangement) and take you through the back roads to the Yarra Valley ( just 1 hr from Melbourne).
We will choose to taste from the following wineries, distillers and brewers:
Coldstream Hills- champions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
Yarra Yering- one of Australia's most revered wineries.
Dominique Portet- with family roots in Bourdeaux, France.
Four Pillars Gin Distillery- world class gin in a fun atmosphere.
Yarra Valley Dairy- for a tasting of the region's finest cheeses.
DeBortoli Wines- home to Australia's most awarded dessert wine.
Yarra Valley Chocolaterie- yummmm!
Yering Station- the oldest winery in the Yarra Valley.
Medhurst- small, niche and lovely.
Some secret small and boutique producers. If we advertised them, they'd not be a secret.
Your private Yarra Valley tour includes the following highlights:
Glass of premium Australian Sparkling wine with stunning views at Domaine Chandon
Lunch - Two course/one glass fine dining experience at TarraWarra Estate.
Sumptuous cheese platter matched with award winning wines at DeBortoli

what do our guests say about this trip
After reading many reviews of the many Yarra Valley Wine Tour options, we decided to take the plunge and reserve Simon of The Private Tour Guide for a full day of Wineries in the Yarra Valley. We made our decision not only based on prior reviews, but because we only had one full day to spend in the Yarra Valley and we wanted to make the absolute most of it.
Thx to Simon, I can say with complete confidence that we could not have been any more ecstatic with our decision! Definitely worth every penny and then some! Seriously what an exceptional value and incredible service. Allow me to expand:
I emailed Simon a good month in advance of our arrival. Simon was very responsive and clearly cared enough to take the time necessary in order to customize the perfect itinerary for our day in the Yarra Valley. We were primarily interested in exceptional Boutique Wineries, with a few of the "must see" options speckled in for good measure. We also were looking for an amazing menu on which to dine for lunch. My goodness - Simon completely exceeded our expectations!
Great wine, great food, and great company and knowledge. Truly one of favorite experiences during our Australian adventure.
Cheers to you Simon & The Private Tour Guide!!! - Froee K, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The Private Tour Guide - 10 out of 10! From the first phone call, Simon was great. We decided on the Yarra Valley Tour. The tour was fantastic and we had such an enjoyable day. Right from the start Simon made us feel at ease and made our day very enjoyable. He has a wealth of knowledge giving us the history of each winery and pointing out heaps of things only locals would know. The vehicle was very clean, spacious and comfortable. I would highly recommend this company.
