Been on a food and wine trail? This is different. Why? Well, did you know this
trail includes kid friendly activities, has two microbreweries, one of the most
spectacular gardens in Victoria, or that Charlie Chaplin fell into a pool here?
And that’s just the beginning...
Yarra Valley’s Coldstream Trail offers a slice of diversity, accessibility
and a quality that sets it apart. That quality is called passion. And it’s found in the
aromas of an earthy pinot; in local produce that has been fused in creative
and mouth-watering dishes; and in the sweetness of new season fruits you picked
yourself accompanied by hand made farmhouse cheeses. Add to this spectacular
vistas of rolling countryside and distant mountains at every turn.
Preservation of the trail’s historic roots – firmly embedded in its heritage
properties, cellar doors and famed vineyards – is approached with similar heart
and soul. The oldest vines in the region provide a rustic setting to drink in times
gone-by, peeling back yet another layer of the trail’s remarkable diversity.
Activities for kids and a gourmet break for adults, all in a short 13km loop.
On Melbourne’s doorstep and just five minutes from Lilydale,
this unique trail, showcases the very best of the Yarra Valley.
