Melbourne is within close proximity to Australia's premier wine region, the Yarra Valley. Head to the countryside for a weekend and enjoy wine tours and lush rural landscape.

Make sure you stop off at the idyllic Yering Station vineyard, the oldest winery in Victoria. The vineyard's stunning restaurant looks out over the picturesque vineyards and showcases sumptuous local produce, matched of course with the famous Yering crème de cuvee or pinot noir.

Neighbouring Yering Station is the Domaine Chandon winery with quality wines. The light-filled brasserie-style restaurant matches oysters, charcuterie and cheese platters with their famous sparkling wines.
