29 Apr Wine tasting close to Melbourne
Whether you’re from here or are a visitor to our beautiful city, the Rob Dolan winery is close to Melbourne, making for a great day trip to experience the Yarra Valley.
After an easy 30-minutes down the freeway, you’ll feel yourself relax when you hit the gravel driveway, past paddocks, farm life and our beautiful vineyard. At the end of the road you’ll find our winery where you can join us for a wine tasting. For $5 (redeemable on bottle purchase) one of our wine gurus will take you through a tasting of our fagship wines which come from some of the top vineyards across the Yarra Valley.
Afterwards, you’re welcome to purchase by the glass or bottle and enjoy some delicious local produce while settling in for a relaxing picnic with a beautiful view over the vineyard.
Foodies, rejoice! If you’re looking to put your palate to the test, you can’t go past the Wine + Cheese Pairing Board, with flavours and textures specifically formulated by our winemakers to heighten the food and wine experience.
We’re family friendly (please keep a close eye on your little ones) and dogs are welcome on a leash.
