Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn, a wine region is considered to be one of the most romantic settings to spend time with a loved one.
Forget Paris, Venice, and Rome, for a truly romantic getaway, the tranquillity of Melbourne’s Yarra Valley is hard to beat. Think glorious gardens, gourmet lunches, lush rolling hills, blue skies dotted with multicoloured hot air balloons, cosy log fires, panoramic views, and tasting wine from one of the finest wine regions in the world.
Whether you’re here to mark a milestone anniversary or just to whisk yourselves away from the everyday grind, we’re sure our Yarra Valley Couple’s tour will come through with its intoxicating charms.
Just 50 kilometres East of Melbourne, The Yarra Valley is a tranquil setting steeped in history. It is a place where time seems to have stood still in the charming hilltop villages, where names like Christmas Hills make you feel like you’re in a fairy-tale, and where endless narrow winding roads allow you to wander for miles.
The tour is hand-crafted to be exclusive and intimate. People looking for some time alone or celebrating a honeymoon, engagement, birthday or an opportunity to tailor a day in a world leading wine region will absolutely enjoy our “Partners in Wine” Winery Tour in Yarra Valley. It’s private, intimate and you will definitely feel very special on a day created for you both. However, if you want to make this a group celebration rather than a couples retreat drop us a line and we can give you a price for up to 25 guests.

A full-day wine tour booking includes 8 hours; this includes the time from the first pickup to the final drop-off. However, there are exceptions to this in case of extreme weather conditions, traffic incidents, etc.
Example of a standard tour: Tour begins at 10 am from pick up point in Melbourne CBD, driver & passengers arrive at Yarra Valley at 11 am, return to Melbourne CBD to finish the tour at 6.00pm.
If multiple pickup pickups/drop-offs are required, then it is recommended to plan your day ahead to avoid exceeding the 8-hour tour duration.
Not strictly, we may allow up to an extra 30 minutes as no one is perfect, and going overtime can happen. However, if an 8-hour tour ends up being a 9- or 10-hour tour then you will be charged overtime.
It is important to note that the driver is booked for 8 hours and longer hours of driving result in fatigue which is not ideal for the safety of the driver and passengers on board.
