The Yarra Valley is a remarkable destination offering world class wines and and outstanding dining experiences. We offer a very special Yarra Valley Lunch Wine Tour as a private or small group experience.
A smaller group with even more personalised service awaits. Epicurean Food and Wine Tours are open for business and ready to host your food and wine tour in the Yarra Valley. With over 20 years of touring excellence we have established solid partnerships in the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula that promise a well connected cellar door and dining experience.
Our group sizes are now 2-6 for a small group or private option. We depart daily from Melbourne City and some selected transfer points. All Epicurean guides are local to the region visited and fully qualified. We understand that you are looking for a memorable experience where your time in the chosen wine region (both about an hour from Melbourne City) is well spent. A private tour or smaller group size means that the tour is well paced and relaxed, bookings are made at every winery so we are expected and the cellar door staff can take the time to discuss the wine, detail the wine story and understand your own wine preferences.
The lunch venues we have chosen for you to select from include a wine tasting so you can choice the wine to pair with your meal. They are of course winery restaurants with amazing quality and creative chefs. In warmer months you are given the option to dine outside and enjoy the vineyard views
Tokar Estate established in 1995, is located in a stunning location in the Yarra Valley. Family owned and operated, Tokar offers award winning wines and traditional hospitality. Originally bought for the purpose of a hobby farm and City getaway, it was quickly identified that the site was located in a perfect location for winemaking. By 1999 the Tokar Estate label was launched with the Spanish Tempranillo, an award winning wine by Tokar that is their signature wine today. The restaurant is wonderfully warm and inviting with a commitment to providing well considered contemporary dining choices for all guests to enjoy. There is a spectacular view from the terrace to enjoy in warmer months.
