The best to the person who has everything

Recently had the pleasure of Rudy and Margaret’s company from Kilmore up in the country

Margaret is a retired headmaster and Rudy works in the city in his own business. Another lovely couple enjoying their relaxing day out with us on their exclusive Private Yarra Valley Winery Tour experience

What a wonderful Christmas gift idea given to Rudy a lover of red wine.  

Rudy and Margaret decided to enjoy their Private Yarra Valley Winery Tour in the autumn season when the leaves are displaying a rainbow of seasonal colours of brilliant red, fire orange and golden yellow.   Aligning the paths to visit some wineries are canopies of overhanging branches bursting with autumn colours this is the perfect day out for these garden lovers and Yarra Valley certainly put on a stunning show.

Stop and take in all that’s on offer great food, French champagne, bold reds and crisp whites, VIP chocolate tastings and VIP ice creamery tastings from the world class chocolatier’s, an exclusive experience not to be missed.

On this occasion Rudy and Margaret visited 6 wineries on their Private Yarra Valley Winery Tour with

Our VIP guests visited the French champagne house Moët & Chandon and experienced a selection of 4 glasses of sparkling champagne and premium quality wines whilst overlooking the manicured garden, star garden and box hedges with lush green lawn and vineyards as far as the eye can see.

This tour included a very special stop at the Coombe Yarra Valley where Australia’s Prima Dona Dame Nellie Melba’s private residence stands along with historical memorabilia from this world famous Opera Soprano Singer in the 1800’s. Both Rudy and Margaret enjoyed the heritage and of course the wines from the cellar door.

Lunch was at Rochford where they enjoyed the seasonal dishes and then onto Yarra Valley Dairy for some cheese tastings and finishing up at Yeering Station to shop for local produce, jams, nougat, and chutney amongst other delights. A most joyous day had by all.

Remembering drinking champagne and cycling in France

From the very words of Gerald and Leanne, clients who recently experienced their Private Yarra Valley Winery Tour with

‘Domaine Chandon we really wanted to go here, it reminds us of when we cycled through France’.

This lovely couple originally from Bathurst have moved to Melbourne and are cyclists at heart.  They have cycled in France and sipped champagne in the same French Vineyard where Napoleon Bonaparte the historical Military Leader became the French Emperor from 1804 to 1814, once stood.

In true VIP hosting from Chaufferdrive the couple then shared 8 glasses of Domaine Chandon’s finest  champagnes  in the restaurant overlooking well-kept manicured gardens and rows and rows of chardonnay vines.

Along their Private Yarra Valley Tour with they also enjoyed an exclusive VIP chocolate tasting from the Yarra Valley Chocolatier and Ice Creamery their favourite chocolate being the freeze dried strawberry chocolate.  

They enjoyed taking selfies from their selfie stick a really important part of their Private Yarra Valley Winery Tour.   They originally left the selfie stick at home fully charged for the day’s photo moments, while their private driver waited for them to return prior to commencing their tour.

A great gift idea from their former employer to their employee, which is exactly what, happened here.  

Onto another visit to a secret location where they bought a mix of shiraz and chardonnay, the vigneron gave them a freshly labelled bottle straight from the labelling press, a new release of a another magnificent red. 

Again more exclusive VIP treatment you will experience on you’re very own Private Yarra Valley Winery Tour with Chauffeurdrive

They knew coming on the tour their wine cellar was getting low, what a perfect opportunity to buy unique wine from hidden away locations that trump the off the shelf every day wine. 

This again confirms to the discerning wine buff that with Chauffeurdrive we deliver on quality locations where our clients will purchase wine in the case for future enjoyment, and again  this is exactly what Gerald and Leanne did to refill their cellar at home.
