Premium Wine Tours
An exclusive look at the Yarra Valley’s wineries

Those who have a passion for wine that’s a step above the norm deserve a tour to match. Introducing Wine Compass’ Premium Wine Tours; an exclusive and in-depth look into the best wineries on the Yarra Valley.

Discover the Yarra Valley in a more in-depth way

Expect nothing but the best when you book our Premium Wine Tour, because that’s what we’re delivering. Utilising our insider knowledge of the region, a wine industry professional with connections at some of the Yarra Valley’s top winemakers, you’ll have an insider pass that few get to enjoy.

Because our tours are fully customisable and personalised, we’ll ensure that every aspect of the day suits you perfectly. So whether you work in the industry and already have a strong knowledge, have a beginner’s understanding but fervently want to learn, or simply want to experience something a cut well above the average, our Premium Wine Tour will showcase the Yarra Valley in a way you’ve never seen before.

Not your average tour
By now it should be obvious that this is a unique way to tour Yarra Valley’s wineries. Set at a slightly higher cost, our Premium Wine Tours are a world of difference from the regular wine tours you’ll find in the region.
Exclusive behind the scenes pass
Led by your experienced and knowledgeable host, you’ll have an all-access pass that allows you to meet award-winning winemakers and gain fascinating insider knowledge.
It’s who you know
The Yarra Valley winery scene is primed with many fantastic characters, and here you’ll get to meet them. Winemakers who have been schooled in the art of wine around the world, an international wine judge and former sommelier, and vineyard owners who have yielded decades of harvests are all ready and willing to share their stories with you.

Example Day Out

Wine Compass’ premium wine tours are perfect for wine lovers and collectors, sommeliers and wine students. Even if your exposure to wine tasting is minimal, this will take you to the next level. Here are some examples of the premium, behind-the-scenes style features you can expect on your tour with us.

Barrel tasting

Example stop: Barrel tasting

A barrel tasting is a unique way of tasting wine straight from the barrel, and then later comparing it to the finished product. It allows you to test your comparative tasting skills, and also learn firsthand the difference the process can make.

Polperro winery

Example stop: tasting and tour in the vines

Head out into the vines to get a closer look at the humble beginnings of your favourite wines, with an expert on hand to provide fascinating further information.

Example stop: Private tasting

Stop by another premium winery, where you’ll be able to taste more spectacular wines with a highly  engaging and personal experience

Example stop: Gourmet lunch

This is a great opportunity for a gourmet lunch stop, with many options available through our Premium Wine Tours. Opt for anything from a scenic, relaxed picnic through to a sit down 3-course meal.

Other options

We have many other types of stops available too including:

  • Distilleries
  • Cider makers
  • Breweries
  • Chocolate makers
  • Dairies for cheese
  • And more

“Look no further”
A great day out with fantastic fun hosts. We were visiting our daughter, and she booked this trip as a late christmas present. A punctual pick up, and then off to some exellent wineries. At no time were we hurried, and our hosts were happy to share their knowledge of wine with us. Fantastic long lunch in a great setting. No hesitation in recommending this trip to others.

“Fantastic day out!”

A HUGE thank you to the team at Wine Compass who made our anniversary special. Adam and Gabi were a pleasure to book with and gave us plenty of choices for stops. On the day we had Jarrod as our host and he was incredible. He had great knowledge of wine and an obvious passion for his job. He kept us on track whilst giving us space throughout the day.

“Fun Yarra tour”

A fantastic experience...

Perfectly planned day out

Would absolutely recommend Adam had his company to anyone planning a wine tour in that area. Everything was easy going and perfectly planned out.


Beautiful wine tour

Adam sorted our family out with a great itinerary with one days notice, we visited some great wineries/ brewery and he had great knowledge of the wines in the area. Overall was a perfect day with some delicious wines and food!


Easy and relaxed

Thank you for organising such a wonderful day. It was super easy dealing with you. The bus ride was fun and the wineries you chose were really good. We had a ball not having to worry about a single thing and being taken from place to place. Very realxing. Would highly reccommend you to anyone.


Fabulous day

Thanks Adam for organising a great day for us. Most of the group hadn’t been to the Yarra Valley before so weren’t sure what to expect. You were attentive and made our day so easy – we didn’t have to think about a thing! I will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a wine tour!


Wine tour

Had a great time! We let Adam choose the cellar doors and lunch venue, we were offered alternatives but went with his choices with no regrets. Very professional and friendly. Flexibility with pick up points was also very handy. Highly recommended!!! Thank you Adam,
