This experience was to celebrate a significant birthday milestone for my husband and it certainly lived up to expectations! From the moment of pick-up to drop off the next morning, Jenn was a perfect host. She had organised us to visit some really lovely boutique wineries that we would not have otherwise known about and the wine tastings and cheese platters were delicious!! The knowledge of the wine makers was exceptional and they really made an effort to ensure our tastings were informative and relaxed. The whole day (and evening) was thoroughly enjoyable and we would recommend this trip to anyone who loves great food, wine and cheese !!

Our children shouted us to an enjoyable chauffeur driven yarra valley wining and dining experience. Absolutely loved all aspects and were given the royal treatment from start to finish. Highly recommend this trip.

It was a wonderful day

I purchased this experience as a gift for my partners 30th birthday & to say we were impressed is an understatement! David was lively & hospitable, picking us up from home & customising our tour as we went, based on what we told him we liked & what we were keen to try. Lunch at Chandon was exquisite, followed by a beautiful dinner & overnight stay at one of Yarra Valley’s finest venues. I would strongly recommend this experience to anyone, wine enthusiast or not. It was a wonderful day overall which we can’t thank David & Jenn enough for organising.

What a fantastic day

November 6, 2022

What a fantastic day visiting a number of wineries for tasting experiences including a generous matched cheese and wine platter to start after visiting the Chocolatier, then more wine tastings experiences, followed by an exceptional lunch at Tarra Warra & to finish off with a unexpected visit to Payton & Jones (Low Sulphur) then finishing off to Yarra Yearing, amazing! David was fabulous in the car full of stories, and made the day with his exceptional knowledge and adjusting as we go. Loved loved loved this experience. Will be doing it again!

Our day was amazing

March 21, 2022

This year, we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. We had planned a trip to New Zealand, including a tour of the Marlborough wine region. This was cancelled due to travel restrictions, so we decided to tour locally instead. About 2 weeks before our anniversary, I found this tour and thought it would be a lovely way to spend our special day. We were staying in the Yarra valley and organised to be picked up from our hotel. Our wonderful driver, Dave, was there right on time to start our day. We visited and sampled wines from five wineries as well as cider and gin at other locations. Our lunch at Domaine Chandon was delicious, as was the flight of sparkling wines which went with it. Throughout the day, we were treated like royalty, by Dave and all of the staff at the various venues. We tasted a lot, learned a lot and enjoyed every minute. Thanks to Jennefer and Dave for organising a wonderful tour around some of the great, small vineyards of the Yarra Valley. Thanks to Dave for his great knowledge of the region and the wineries and his willingness to add another quick stop at the Coldstream Dairy to buy some cheese. Our day was amazing and we would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a little bit of spoiling.

Highly recommend this experience for anyone who enjoys good food and wine!

I was gifted this tour as a Mother’s Day present and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. My travelling companion for the day and I hadn’t seen each other for a while due to lockdowns etc, and this day was just what we needed to catch up and relax, as everything was taken care of prior to the day by our wonderful host/driver Jennefer. She was on time, knowledgeable about the area, and happy to accommodate our last minute choices on the day. Lunch at Chandon was a definite highlight-the food was excellent as was the Champagne. All the other wineries we visited were extremely accommodating and we came home well stocked for future catch ups. Highly recommend this experience for anyone who enjoys good food and wine!

From start to finish, an incredible experience.

From start to finish, an incredible experience. David is friendly and professional, and was able to tailor the itinerary throughout the weekend to make sure that the trip hit every highlight. Already planning a return booking with my partner, and will be recommending as a must-do of any visit to Melbourne.

Would definitely recommend

Jenn was friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. She took my husband and I around to several venues in the Yarra Valley; a few of which were completely new to us. She was flexible with our drop off location and always willing to make our experience as comfortable as possible. We had a lovely day and cannot wait to return to some of the wineries she introduced us to. Would definitely recommend.

He was very Queer friendly and made us feel comfortable.

March 21, 2022

I wanted to treat my partner to a special day out and this was the perfect way to do so!

David was an incredible tour guide and took us to wineries he thought best suited us and he did a great job – he catered for our interests with no worries at all.

He was very Queer friendly and made us feel comfortable.

We will definitely be using this small business again.

Thank you David!

Absolutely fantastic

March 20, 2022

Our tour with David was absolutely fantastic. Jenn had planned things so well and the itinerary was made up a brilliant mix of experiences. We loved the lunch at Domaine Chandon, the wineries were really well chosen (chatted to the young winemaker at one which was fantastic), we loved the gin tasting and the accommodation and dinner were superb. David is a professional and very experienced driver and he seemed to enjoy the fact that we filled the boot and the front of the car with all the wine we bought (we couldn’t resist)! This tour was something I bought for my husband for a very special birthday and it exceeded our expectations – a wonderful tour.
