A Corporate Wine Tour is an entertaining day spent with workmates that can be as informative and educational as you would like it to be with a tour of the winery so you can see what goes on behind the scenes and the opportunity to meet a winemaker.
The full day tour with a Melbourne City or Melbourne suburb transfer is a fun and memorable day that is perfect for incentive/reward days, a social club, end of year celebrations or to show interstate or international clients through this spectacular region.
As private group tour specialists, Epicurean Food and Wine Tours will deliver a day that ticks all the boxes for tasting premium wines as well as private cellar door tastings, cheese and wine pairings and tasting chocolate with premium red wines in a barrel room.
We present the very best of the Yarra Valley with lunch at Domaine Chandon where the sparkling wine comes alive with food at Greenpoint Brasserie or you may choose to dine at De Bortoli Estate if northern Italian inspired trattoria at Locale Restaurant is a preferred option, Cheese and Wine Pairing at De Bortoli, a range tasting of sparkling wine at Domaine Chandon, a winery tour and chocolate and wine pairing at the very chic Dominique Portet and a beer and cider paddle at Napoleon Brewery and CiderHouse.
If you have a favourite winery that is a “must see” we would be happy to change the itinerary to suit.
Price - $1,900 all inclusive

Hear what some of Epicurean Food and Wine Tours' customers had to say...
In banking the end of the financial year is almost as exciting as the lead up to Christmas in retail. Anyway any excuse to leave the office and put a drink in your hand, right? In the past we have gone go cart racing (dangerous) gone to a local restaurant (hit and miss) and even to the horse races (the kind of dangerous you can't put on your expense form) This year we ventured out to the Yarra Valley with a group of 10 of the office favourites otherwise known as suck ups and it was fabulous. Everything was organised for us which was awesome as it saved a lot of arguments on where to visit that would have taken us into the new financial year and beyond. The journey out was a mix of good story telling by the guide Bill and some useful information on wine that added to my extensive knowledge of some wine is white and if its not it's red. And we were away, stopped to see some Kangaroos and enjoyed a day of food and wine pairing with a wonderful lunch at Domaine Chandon, which can be white, red AND sparkling, who knew :) ?
Not strictly food and wine as we enjoyed a tasting paddle of ale and cider at Napoleon. Another great stop was Dominique Portet where, Valentine showed us around the winery and we also paired (that's a new word for me) chocolate with red wine in the barrel room. Made it back to the office with a box or 2 of wine, you guessed it, red, white and sparkling. This is a day we will recommend to all as it takes all the hard slog out of making decisions which can be really complicated when it comes to food and wine. Epicurean are really well known and respected in the Yarra Valley so there is no waiting and you feel like a special guest at all wineries. Now it's back to spreadsheets for me and we look forward to joining Epicurean to celebrate in the Mornington Peninsula next year
