Tour Details

Forget the strippers, bring out another bottle of Shiraz.

Get ready to kick back, relax and enjoy some quality grape juice on a Yarra Valley Wine Tour. We know that Bucks Parties are practically synonymous with booze, boys and banter. We can bring you all those traditional perks – but just with a classier edge. 

A Bucks Party with Ami Tours will take you to some of Australia’s (and arguably the World’s) best wine region. You don’t need to know the difference between “the nose” and “the legs” of the red either. As long as you’re swirling the glass, taking a nice deep whiff and sipping on the Cabernet, we won’t even know the difference. These cracking wineries will leave all the boys screaming your praise and worship the ground you walk on – Talk about some easy brownie points!

With a fully licensed and CPVV accredited driver at your side, our aim is to provide you with a memorable experience exploring the best wines that Yarra Valley has to offer at an affordable price. This 8-hour private tour package price per person includes tastings at 2 different wineries, a gourmet lunch, a special visit to the local distillery, brewery or chocolaterie, private transport to all wineries including a complimentary pick-up and drop-off service from a location of your choice within Melbourne CBD.

  • This tour requires a minimum of 8 guests however we are happy to cater to smaller groups as well. Please get in touch with us for a custom quotation for smaller groups. 
  • Kindly send us an email to bookings@amitours.com.au if you wish to make a tentative booking.

11.00 A.MWine Tastings at Yering Station

Our 1st stop is Yering Station, Yarra Valley’s first & most famous family vineyard. Yering Station is a state-of-the art creation that manages to combine style and sophistication with traditional, age-old wine making techniques.

At the Cellar Door, the technical term for the wine-tasting area, you can try 15 styles of wine. And if you’re wondering what the heck your guide is on about when he asks you if you can taste the freshly mown grass in your Cabernet Franc, or the hint of smoky tobacco in your Shiraz, fear not! The guides are skilled wine experts, on-hand to provide a bit of palate training should it be required.

12:00 P.MWine Tastings at Payten & Jones

Payten and Jones could just have coolest place in Yarra Valley. This cellar door is a tribute to all things amazing in wine and a kick arse collection of street art to match. The crew here really know their wines – from near and a far – and a tasting session is a must.

You’ll learn all about their fermenting process and you get to sample their finest drops. If you’re not into wine so much, there is a fridge full of cans and cocktails to order too. The vibe here is super laidback and very casual – it’s not your typical winery – and perfect for a date with the buddies!

01:00 P.MLunch at Watts River Brewing

Our lunch stop is Watts River Brewing, a small, independent, family-owned brewery focused on producing high quality, simple but flavourful beers that really packs a punch, and paired with spicy food dishes is a real knockout

They’ve got fresh beer on tap, tasting paddles, house-made pizzas, snacks as well as a small selection of local wine and gin.

03:00 P.MOptional visit to Four Pillars Gin Distillery or Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery

For our 4th stop, you can choose between a visit to either the Four Pillars Gin Distillery or the Mornington Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery.

Treat yourself & your loved one to a true Australian Craft Gin, or indulge your sweet tooth in a freshly made batch of artisanal chocolates, pastries & desserts at the local gin distillery/chocolaterie.

  • Customer Review - Marshall L.
    MARSHALL L.AJ drove our group for my brother's bachelor party. Professional & timely service - very quick to respond to questions/requests. Great driving + some good stories.Highly recommended if you're planning to do a Bucks wine tour with these guys, their service is top notch and getting a booking with them isn't easy. We had to stay on the waiting list for 3 weeks to get a weekend spot that suited us.
  • Customer Review - Adam G.
    ADAM G.We booked Ami Tours for a bucks party wine tour. It was a private tour for a full day. Our tour guide was fantastic, going above and beyond to make the event as smooth as possible for our group including last minute changes to the schedule. As for the booking the team made it seamless and the price was worth the value for what we paid I will definitely use Ami Tours again! Thanks guys
  • Customer Review - Brian S.
    BRIAN S.We did a private wine tour with 14 guys for a bucks party back in May. AJay was our the driver and was with us the entire day. He took care of our requests, was really patient with us being so loud haha and really made the entire process very easy and simple to manage, especially for a large group. We had nothing to worry about in terms of payment or transport, all was sorted by the booking team. Amazing service truly.
