Autumn in the Yarra Valley

Many people don’t realize this. Autumn is the best time of the year to be out amongst the vines.

Between the months of March and May, the autumnal display of the vines can be breathtaking.  The deciduous leaves start to change colour – known as senescence. During this season, you will delight in the spectacular hues of the vines, as they splash across the rolling hills.

With crisp, misty mornings, autumn is the perfect time to visit the cellar doors in the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula. Stunning displays will also be found in the Macedon Ranges and on the Bellarine Peninsula.

As the daylight softens, and the temperature cools – the red wines taste even better!


There are still some Perfect Day Tours available for Autumn. Hope to see you soon!
