One-hour drive east of Melbourne there is Yarra Valley, a scenic area where many famous Australian wines are produced. Yarra Valley produces world-class wines. More than 70 wineries are open to the public. In order to visit one of them, you need to pre-order transportation or make an appointment for a wine tour, which can be combined with a leisurely dinner, as there are many elite restaurants in the valley. Since the grape harvest season begins in autumn, March is an ideal month for exploring the vineyards and conducting tasting tours. During this time, the famous Grape Grazing Festival takes place in the Yarra Valley.
