I am a Yarra Valley local and Pinot Noir tragic on an endless quest to find the perfect wine (it's a never ending quest). I have lived and worked in the Valley for 15 years and have watched it grow into a booming region with a fantastic array of food and wine experiences. I love taking visitors to my favourite local haunts to hear the stories behind the cellar doors of the people who live and work in this region and who are equally passionate about what they do and the amazing produce they produce! I am all about finding unique ways to bring the valley alive to our visitors!

Craig's business is impeccably well-run, and he is amazingly communicative. He put in major effort to make sure my friends and I could go on this tour safely throughout the pandemic. The Yarra Valley is gorgeous - and the wineries Craig arranged for us were wonderful. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a highly-personalised, amazingly fun and wonderfully-coordinated wine tour.

Craig was a fantastic host! Because we only had a small group, Craig tailored the tour and took us to a few places we wouldn't ordinarily visit. He shared lots of knowledge about the winery and history of the region which was fantastic to learn. Most importantly - he had lots of space in the van to store all the wine we purchased!

Craig was so friendly and knowledgeable from pickup to drop off on our tour! He took us to special wineries and shared local secrets with us. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend this tour for someone wanting to experience Yarra Valley in a day!

We (a 30ish couple visiting from Chicago) had a great time on the Yarra Valley Wine tour with Craig. Craig made it an easy pickup via the train from downtown Melbourne, even though the weather wreaked havoc on our commute. The wineries (and brewery) we visited were a mix of size and type, from Chandon Australia down to a local, very small winery. If you have a preference for one or the other Craig seemed open to a flexible itinerary for all. During our short drives between locations Craig was funny, friendly, and knowledgeable about both wines and the history of the Yarra Valley region. Lunch was not included but the town we visited had plenty of options and Craig picked us all up at our respective stops after to continue the tour. After our final stop we capped off the day with some wild kangaroo sight-seeing! Overall this experience exceeded our expectation, and was an easy day trip from downtown Melbourne -- we would definitely recommend it!

Craig is friendly and waited us patiently even though we were late due to the delay in public transportation. Winery tour is great and worth a visit to learn the difference of the wines. A bonus adding to our experience is we get to see wild Kangaroos, what a thoughtful act from Craig!!

We had an excellent experience, relaxed and well connected with Craig. Our meet up was delayed due to the mess of public transportation. Craig offered options for us, to postpone the trip, and was willing to wait for us. Specially arranged the another pick up while the other guests had started the tour. Overall, Craig is very kind and considerate person and share with us many nice stories, one bonus from Craig, was the kangaroo visit.
