Right here we love wine nearly as much as we love health adventures. Melbourne is blessed with one of the best wine areas in Australia and with summer season just a couple of days away, we wanted to share a list of our favourite Yarra Valley wineries.
1 Medhurst Wines: Set in Gruyere, proper in the centre of the valley, the quality of the experience at Medhurst is equalled solely by the wine. Richard the sommelier oozes passion and data making the wine tasting expertise at Medhurst one of the best in the area. The wines have received a sequence of awards over the past couple of years with the Chardonnay and the YRB (red mix) being the pick of the bunch.
2 Oakridge: The views at Oakridge are a few of the finest within the Yarra Valley and the wines aren’t too far behind. We love the 2015 ‘864’ Chardonnay and, for something completely different, the Late Harvest Pinot Gris: a semi-candy wine that goes down nicely with a couple of episodes of your favourite Netflix show.
3 Yering Station: Dwelling of Victoria’s first vineyard, planted method back in 1838 (solely three years after Melbourne was based by white settlers), Yering Station is steeped in history. Set in a wonderful estate and with stunning heritage buildings, Yering additionally puts out some unbelievable wines – the 2015 Reserve Pinot Noir is our favourite.
4 Domaine Chandon: Not precisely an authentic choice, however it’s hard to go past a visit to DC in case you’re passing via the Yarra valley wine tasting tours Valley. As Victoria’s premier producer of sparkling wine (just don’t say the ‘C’ word), the expertise at Domaine Chandon is certainly one of luxurious and class and is at all times a highlight of the day for our customers.
5 Napoleone Brewery and Ciderhouse: It’s not technically a vineyard but Napoleone is to not be missed, especially in case you or another person in your group isn’t into grape based drinks. These guys have an ideal selection of beers and ciders, all of which go down very properly towards the top of a hot day. Make this your final stop.
