Pooches And Pinot

Dog and wine lovers read on…because you are SO going to want to do a Pooches & Pinot private Yarra Valley winery tour with your pooch!

A Pooches & Pinot tour is perfect when you're holidaying in the Yarra Valley with your hound.  Or ideal if you're based in Melbourne but would love to be picked up from home, VIP style, and taken on your very own Yarra Valley wine tour with your pooch.  And you know what, if you love dogs but don't have one, why not borrow one of theirs to take on your wine tour?!?

Pooches And Pinot run private wine tasting tours of the Yarra Valley for you and your dog.  You’ll be collected in a Mercedes touring van like VIPs from your accommodation (or home address up to 75kms from Healesville) and taken to all the loveliest dog-friendly spots in the Yarra Valley – your pooch gets their very own hand-embroidered bandana to keep and gourmet treats throughout the day plus a fabulous off-lead walk somewhere beautiful that only the locals know about, and of course, as much love and adoration as they can handle at all the cellar doors you visit - Pooches & Pinot staff live in the Yarra Valley and are well known/loved at all the best pet-friendly wineries and cellar doors where you’ll be welcomed like rock stars.

Choose the tour that suits you best - from their half-day mid-week tour to their full-day tour (which you can book any day of the week) to their all-singing, all-dancing Dog’s Bollocks Deal where you get a two-course lunch with wine, and are given a complimentary bottle of Yarra Valley wine to take home at the end of your tour.  Heck you can even add on a hilarious tongue-in-cheek blog written 'by your dog' which will be sent to you at the end of your tour with all the photos from your day!  Amazing food is a huge part of the tour, lunch options range from Healesville's finest dog-friendly cafes to a winery lunch where your pooch will be by your side the whole time, or taken off for a stroll by your tour guide if your pupster gets restless!  Full-day tours include a lovely walk at a fabulous dog-friendly park or trail, so you can all walk off lunch, have a sniff and stretch your legs during your tour too. Pooches And Pinot will find gorgeous winery decks for you to sit on as you drink in the views (as well as the local wines).  And they are renowned for not taking themselves too seriously (well, at all seriously really) – these tours are about having fun with your pooch.  Check out these testimonials and you'll see what all the fuss is about
