It’s VIP all the way with Pooches & Pinot

At Pooches & Pinot we understand how much you love spending time with your pooch – so why not bring them on a Yarra Valley wine tour!

We organise your whole itinerary, book it all in, pick you up from your house* and drive you on your very own private tour, and drop you back home again at the end of the day?!

All our Yarra Valley tours are private, not public, so it’s just for you and your dog.  Our tours are for up to 7 people and up to 2 dogs, all from the same group.

*(up to 75kms from Healesville)

Tour Options

We arrange your entire day’s itinerary, booking you in to all the best pup-friendly places our region has to offer.  Collecting you from your door* in one of our comfortable Mercedes touring vans (which comfortably seat up to 6 people and 2 dogs) we chauffeur you around our beautiful Yarra Valley like VIPs for the day, sharing all the best dog-friendly spots with you.  You’ve got three tours to choose from – the Half Day Tour, the Full Day Tour and the Progressive Degustation Tour (for those seeking rockstar royalty treatment).


What’s everyone saying about Pooches & Pinot

  • We loved our tour and the recommendations we were taken on the day, Jeff was so good with our pups and even helped entertain them while we enjoyed our tastings. I would 100% recommend and do again if we are back in the Yarra region

  • We loved the private wine (and beer) tasting tour with Pooches and Pinot. Our dog Shammi went from "Who are you" to "I love you Jeff" within a very short span of time. The venues were very welcoming. The van and the … More company was just great all the way through. There were treats for both dogs and their humans throughout the journey which made it all the more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend Pooches and Pinot experience!

  • Don't hesitate to book a tour with these guys! We had a fantastic day sipping our way round the Yarra Valley made even more special by having our fur baby Hector with us. Jeff our guide is an awesome guy, and was very cool about Hector … More shedding all over his immaculately clean and fancy minibus! He took us to some beautiful spots and made us feel like VIPs ushering us to the best tables at each place. Jeff's partner Helen who made all the arrangements for our day was a delight to deal with from the very first email and extremely understanding of our numerous cancellations due to lockdowns. She planned an epic itinerary and wrote a gorgeous blog of our day to accompany Jeff's photos. We'll definitely be back!

  • I cannot recommend Pooches and Pinot highly enough! I had an AMAZING day exploring the beautiful Yarra Valley, sipping on wine, gin and eating cheese! A truly unforgettable experience for myself and my dog. He had a great time and was spoilt … More by Jeff and everyone at the wineries.

  • If you’ve made it to the review section the only thing I can say is make sure you book! What better way to spend a day than sampling Yarra Valley wines with your canine best friend/s. We have been multiple times and Helen has always ensured … More a fabulous array of wineries and Jeff provides seamless execution on the day. Tables are always ready to go at the wineries with ample room for the dogs to settle in. The venues and their staff always make the dogs feel extremely welcome. The day is no doubt a treat for them too as they get spoiled with pats and love.
    Our most recent tour was the degustation tour and the upgrade proved absolutely worthwhile. Local cheeses were a terrific compliment to the wine tasting. The pastries were delicious and catered especially to our gluten free requirements (Helen is an expert). Our three course lunch at Steels Gate perfect and a vegetarian option was no issue for them whatsoever. I don’t think there’s any other way to do it now. Looking forward to seeing what magic Helen can conjure in the future!
