Raise your glasses, you're in for a real treat in the Yarra Valley this weekend.
As you drive through the sweeping vineyards and rolling hills of the Yarra Valley, you can not help but feel a sense of growing curiosity. Then you find yourself driving towards a cellar door or vineyard that you have never visited, but instinct tells you it was well worth the diversion from your usual wine-tour route. It is here you discover for yourself the hidden secrets and pure delight of the smaller wineries of the Yarra Valley region.
Family-owned and run, these unassuming wineries offer a very different experience and it’s not uncommon for the smile who greets you at the door to be that of the winemaker or vigneron whose creation you are about to savour. Only at these smaller wineries can casual visitors get such a personal insight into the vintage - its challenges, nuances and accomplishments.
If it's berries you're after, then it's berries you'll get. Situated in the beautiful Yarra Valley, U-Pick is the perfect place to bring the family to pick berries and vegetables that are in season (check the website/facebook page for updates on availability).
They're so much more than berries though. You can pick your own veggies in the u-pick vegetable garden, purchase pre-picked fruit and veggies and various products made from their own fruit, enjoy a smoothie or coffee and venture on a tractor ride.
