When one thinks of Yarra Valley, vineyards and wine tasting may jolt the mind. The cool climate of the valley makes it an idealistic location for wineries. With plenty to choose from, it might not be easy to make a decision. BBM’s vote goes out to De Bortoli, a
winery that has been around since 1987.
What makes this place special? Well, it has been a local town favorite for many-not to mention it was recently named the Best Tourism Winery at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards.
The winery has built up quite the reputation for friendly staff and environment. Owned by the De Bertolis, it is open seven days a week to the public with a range of cabernet, chardonnay and pinot noir. If you aren’t familiar with wine, De Bertoli offers tours to
find your favorite.
What goes better with wine than cheese? Yarra Valley Dairy provides a charming setting in the valley, where you can enjoy some of the fine farmhouse cheeses made from the farms’ milk. This little gem is worth a look, as you can experience the process of cheese
making while spending time enjoying the food.
