Great Day in the Yarra Valley

5starstarstarstarstar This 1 day Yarra Valley wine experience tour was hosted by our guide and driver Bill who collected us from our hotel in South Yarra at 9:00am.
We were also joined by 2 other guests from Melbourne & Japan.
Bill made every effort to make us feel comfortable, to get acquainted with each other and explain the tour and itinerary. A nice touch was the Podcast which he shared with the group which was a great introduction in understanding differences between great and not so good wines.
We visited 2 big valley producers i.e. De Bortoli and Domaine Chandon and two smaller family run wineries, Tokar, where we had a great lunch and Dominique Portet who makes an awesome Method Champenoise.
The best experience for us was chat with Graeme Miller, owner from Dixons Creek Estate, a pioneer in the Yarra Valley. What a wealth of knowledge, a true gentleman and an experience I will never forget. The 2012 Chardonnay is a knockout. Thanks Bill for making this happen and introducing us all to Graeme.

To end an awesome day, Bill stopped at Coldstream brewery on the way back to Melbourne for a "roadie" which was a nice touch. (Not sure I needed more - but why not, life is short! )
I would certainly recommend the Epicurean Food and Wine Experience as it was personal, fun and memorable. Thanks Bill for great day.
