My wife and I did a Yarra Valley wine tour with Epicurean. We really did enjoy the experience but have a few things to note below. We thought we went to one too many wineries. We did four tastings and then a fifth with lunch (+ a glass with lunch). We felt a little rushed at each tasting. We only... More

My husband and I along with another couple spent a wonderful day with Nicci while on a cruise stop in Melbourne. Our ship stayed in port longer than planned due to rough seas and Nicci had no problem extending our day. We went to 5 wineries, De Bortoli, Yering, Coldstream Hills, Tokar and Terrawerra. Nicci's knowlege of each winery was... More

We've been to Melbourne twice and we've done Epicurean Tours to Yarra Valley both times. First time (July 2015) was a small group tour and this time (Dec 2016) was a private tour. Both were fantastic. An amazing selection of wineries with introductions to a number of unique, boutique wineries. Wonderful wines, lovely people, and an awesome day. Couldn't recommend... More

Fantastic day out wining & dining in the Yarra Valley with Epicurean Food & Wine Tours. The day ran very smoothly & with plenty of time to enjoy each of the wineries. The hostess & driver, (Nicci), is delightful & she has expert knowledge about wine & the industry itself. I would highly recommend this tour.

Thank you so much Nicci and Bill for making my husband's 50th birthday trip one to remember. Such a relaxing day and the kids enjoyed it as much as us (wifi onboard was a winner). We laughed, learnt about wines and the Yarra Valley, and enjoyed the time together as a family. Would definately recommend to our friends and family.

The wine and cheese pairing at De Bortoli was great, meeting the winemaker at Dixon's was great - my husband even bought a bottle of wine (in plastic) for traveling, lunch at Tokar Estate with wine tasting and ending up at Domenique Portet, Would highly...

Our guide, Nicci Crossing, couldn't have been more pleasant or knowledgable about the region and its wines. She selected four very representative Cellar Doors where we tasted wines, cheeses and had a great lunch. She was very flexible with the itinerary which allowed for great photography and local eco-tourism. We would highly recommend this tour company and Nicci in particular.

Thank you Judy, it was a pleasure to have you join us. We choose cellar doors so guests can experience a good cross section of wineries and food in the Yarra Valley. Hope you got some good pics. See you both next time you are visiting Melbourne. More
