Beginners welcome! Pickup at Ladygreen cafe, 424 New Street, Brighton - A pleasant walk down Martin St from Gardenvale train station at 0930, grab a coffee while the group plans the days itinerary, take off to take a pic in front of the colourful Brighton Bathing Boxes on the beach before heading out to explore the wineries and other attractions of the Yarra Valley region. Explore the sights along the way while we introduce ourselves and share stories. The aim is to choose as a group the 2 or 3 wineries we visit before lunch, the third winery where we eat lunch and enjoy a glass of vino. Then off we go to check-in at a further 2 or 3 wineries or the Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary, Chocolaterie, Gin distillery or Craft Breweries before heading back to Melbourne for drop-off around 6.30. Most winery tastings are free, some charge AUD$5 that is refunded with any purchase, Chandon charges $12 to taste 6 sparkling wines with a $6 discount on purchase. Lunch costs around $20 per head. Wildlife sanctuary entry costs $36. The wineries and other attractions we visit are chosen by the group from a comprehensive list of around 60 wineries in the area, with guidance from your host - Pete
