Then it's onwards to the town of Seville - another nice downhill - where we join the Lilydale to Warburton rail trail through some of the best scenery & cycling in Victoria. Our support vehicle will be close at hand and if you wish to stop cycling you can simply hop on board. After an highly enjoyable 12km of riding past vineyards and farms on the rail trail we join the van again and put our bikes away, as it's time to indulge in a gourmet picnic lunch of Yarra Valley produce followed by some serious wine tasting!
Yarra Valley Wine and Cheese tasting. The Yarra valley is internationally recognized as a leading cool climate wine region and the home to some very fine produce. Our lunch stop is at Domain Chandon, where after enjoying a gourmet lunch we can also take an informative tour around the home of Champagne in Australia. Learn all about the wine making process in an entertaining and informative way and get insights into a world-class winery at work as you see wine making in progress, visit the barrel cellar and the riddling hall.
Next stop is a nice boutique Vineyard, and cellar door at Coombe Farm, which was once home to the famous Dame Nellie Melba.Next is a delicious cheese tasting session at the Yarra Valley Dairy and then another small rustic winery Yering farm to finish off a magical day. We then return back to Melbourne aiming to be back in the city for 5:30- 6:00pm.
We can provide jackets for cold and wet conditions but in the unlikely event of very bad weather that is not suitable for cycling your leader may substitute the ride with a trip on the famous Puffing Billy steam train ride through the hills instead.
