A Day In The Yarra Valley | Victoria Photo Diary

The Yarra Valley is known to be the best place to visit wineries in Australia, if not, the best place in the Australia and Asiana region(my opinion). This locale has over 100 wineries that grow and produce there own unique blend. The wineries in the area also vary in size. A few are world renowned wine vineyard, while plenty are modest mom and pop estates within the valley. 

In planning this little day excursion, we booked a private tour with Wild Wombat Winery Tours through the Viator website. This is the exact tour we booked, link here! I HIGHLY recommend our tour guide, Gary if you find yourself booking a tour with this company. He made sure we were having the best time, from start to end.

The first winery we visited was Corniola. This was a winery solely ran by an Italian couple. I found that it was the most authentic among all the wineries we visited. I especially really loved their home blend of Rose. Hands down the best I have ever tried.

The wine tasting was led my the husband and let me tell you, he made sure we did not so thirsty.

Dixon’s Creek had such a picturesque view from the tasting deck accompanied with some mixed blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Dom Perignon. By this time, we were already very tipsy. Haha!

The De Bortoli has got to be the most extravagant(in a good way) winery we visited. They had perfectly manicured vineyards lined with some beautiful cherry blossom-esque trees. This was also where we had our lunch and (another) wine tasting.

Yileena Park was the last winery we visited. It was also ran by a couple and aside from producing such lovely wine, they grew cattle and sheep as well. Their wines had similar characteristics as Corniola. The tasting area was beautifully situated at the center of their property. I could’ve sat outside for hours.

Before heading back to the city, I(yes, it had to be me) asked our tour guide, Gary if I could see the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie because my good friend recommended it! Plus, I love me some sweetened cocoa.

I am no wine connoissuer but I do love my glass of wine(or two) every now and then. This has got to be one of the best day excursions I have ever took with my family. But bear in mind that we were all of age to consume alcohol and responsible drinkers. 

Let me stress this one more time(for the love of Gary), I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who just enjoys company of kind strangers who share the same love for wine as you. Drink responsibly!
