Yarra Valley Day Tour Itinerary:

Our Yarra Valley Wine Tour begins with fresh produce and a tour through the Yarra Valley Gateway Estate greenhouse and learn about sustainable, organic farming. Then we get our first sampling of the day with a variety of local produce. If you love strawberries there is an indoor strawberry picking available throughout the year at an additional cost.

This gourmet farm gate is home to their own delicious range of relishes, preserves and strawberry liqueurs which you will sample together with platters of local fruit and cheese. Delicious!
