5 starstarstarstarstar Yarra Valley Wine Tour
We had a great day in the Yarra Valley with Nikki as our trusted guide!. she was friendly and bubbly and has an obvious passion for the Yarra Valley as well as an indepth knowledge of wine and the delights of wine tasting. We were a small group of 6 on this tour and found this hidden treasure via Viator. We are so glad we did. We toured in a Mercedes Van that was also equipped with wifi and was super comfortable. All in all we visited 5 wineries. Nikki had chosen them as they are family owned but also provide the best tasting room experience. The wine was awesome. We were able to send a case home thru Nikki which will be waiting for us when we are back from vacation. The Noble One at Debortoli was particularly good and we had this with a salty blue cheese. This was hosted by a very enthusiastic "Charles" at the tasting room. We were lucky enough to meet a winemaker-Graham, I think at the next winery and he had several stories about the history of wine in the region and fishing which was bought up by my husband. The Yarra Valley is a beuatiful region and the wines are sublime. They call it cool climate wines but to me the chardonnay in particular was so good. Lunch at Tokar Estate where we were the first guests to try the new spring menu was also delicious. We ended at Helen and Joeys on an expansive deck where we relaxed and even met Helen. This was a fabulous day and we will be recommending Epicurean to all our friend and family visiting Melbourne in the coming years. Thank you Nikki

5 starstarstarstarstar A Great Day in the Yarra Valley
ust spent a fantastic day in the Yarra Valley with Epicurean Tours. Their effervescent and very knowledgeable driver Bill ensured everything went smoothly (including picking us up from our hotel spot on time) and not only steered us in a timely fashion through our samplings, but also gave us some great information about the history and technical aspects of wine-growing in the area. We really enjoyed the company of our ragtag small group of companions, who it transpires were all in Melbourne for the Opera (I actually learned a lot about Opera during the drive!). We sampled some great regional wines and cheeses via De Bortolli, Yerring Station, Chandon and Dominique Portet. Had a great lunch at Chandon (with sparklies aplenty) and finished up with coffee and sweets at Dominique Portet. Given it was my wife's birthday, I was ecstatic when they brought out a cake with a candle at the end of the day (gluten free - as my wife is coeliac!). What more could you want? A fantastic day in every respect and one which promises to be one of my wife's most memorable birthdays. Thankyou Bill and Epicurean - and thankyou all the folks we met on the day. Highly recommended.

5 starstarstarstarstar A top Notch Tour
Whenever we book a higher end tour, I tend to be cautious as to if we will receive the value that we pay for. In the case of Epicurean and the Yarra Valley Wine Tour, it was most assuredly worth the extra cost published by other tours. Starting with the fact that it is designed for 2-10 people, they pick up you up from the individual hotels, and you would be hard pressed to find a better guide than Bill, the entire experience was most enjoyable. The selected stops provided a range of wines, lunch was delicious and leisurely, and the interaction between Bill and the owners/staff at the stops spoke of well-cultivated relationships. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn about Australian wines in a relaxed and informative manner.
