Pooches and Pinot

Food and Wine Tours

Are you holidaying in the Yarra Valley with your dog and want to do a wine tour? Or based in Melbourne and want to explore the Yarra Valley with your pooch?

Then join Pooches and Pinot on a private tour exploring the region with a pooch, tasting wine, gin, beer and cider. If you do not have a dog, you can borrow one of Pooches and Pinot’s dogs for your tour – Henry or George.

Pooches and Pinot are local to the Yarra Valley and personally know all the gorgeous dog-friendly cellar doors and staff, so you will receive a fabulous VIP welcome as you arrive in your Mercedes touring van and your dog will be beautifully looked after throughout your tour.

Leave it all to Pooches and Pinot, they make all the bookings, do all the planning and pick you up from your door – so on the day you can sit back, relax and enjoy your tour with your dog(s).

Bring the dog along on a VIP Yarra Valley pet-friendly wine tour and explore the region’s wineries, cellar doors, craft breweries, distilleries, pooch-friendly cafes and restaurants with the locals, like a local.

Just for you and your dog – a private VIP full day wine tour of all the Yarra Valley’s finest pet-friendly cellar doors.

This is Pooches and Pinot’s all singing, all dancing tour which includes a sumptuous lunch at Healesville’s best pet-friendly cafe. Pooches and Pinot offer a door-to-door service (free pick up within the Yarra Valley and at a pro rata fee for addresses up to 75 kilometers away) and collect you with your pooch, drive you out to pre-agreed wineries, pay for all your wine, gin, cider or beer tastings during the day, and pick up the tab for lunch too.

Your hound(s) (up to two dogs that know each other) will be looked after like royalty, fed ‘Laila and Me’ gorgeous treats and sitting with you, being adored in each cellar door, enjoying an informative wine tasting. If they get restless or fancy exploring, they can take their own personal tour guide/doggy handler out on the lawns, to sniff out all those great new smells, making friends and enjoying some country air.

Works beautifully for a couple, a group of friends or the family – the Mercedes touring van seats up to six people, and two dogs.

Picture this – you and your dog, on a VIP half day mid week private wine tasting tour of the stunning Yarra Valley – honestly, what’s not to love?

The half day tour is offered mid week and is perfect if you are time poor. Choose a morning or afternoon tour to work in with your itinerary – why not, it’s your tour, there is no-one else to consider.

They collect you and your pup from your accommodation, or private address, and take you for a gin, cider or beer tasting (whichever you prefer), and visit up to three of the region’s best dog-friendly wineries for wine tastings. If time allows they will show you a fabulous local spot for a walk with your pup, or add in a visit to a gorgeous local deli before returning you to your accommodation. It is a fantastic way to experience the region with your doggo by your side, while letting someone else do the planning, the bookings, the driving etc.

The half day tours don’t include lunch, so you will want to make separate arrangements for that. Inclusive of all tastings and delicious doggy treats from Laila and Me.
