Wine Tours
for couples, families - even dogs!

During your stay,
see the Yarra Valley like a local, without even having to drive!

Put Pooches & Pinot

in charge!

Our region is one of Australia’s best cool climate wine regions, famed for its Chardonnay & Pinot, with more than 80 cellar doors within a stone's throw for you to visit.  And there's heaps of family-friendly experiences too.

But rather than try and plan it all and book it and then drive yourselves, (and have to say no to the wine tastings) - let the local experts take you to all the best places.  Book a fabulous day out with local tour company Pooches And Pinot and your children (and hound if you have one) will have the best day out on the tour!


All their tours are private tours, just for your group, and they pick you up from Wiggley at no extra charge, take you to all the best spots, known only to those in the know, including coffee tastings, wine tastings, chocolate tastings, cheese tastings - even gin, beer & cider tastings, plus a walk after lunch (on or off lead) somewhere beautiful so your pup gets to stretch their legs too - then, at the end of your fabulous day, they drop you back home again to Wiggley!  You get to have all the fun, without any responsibility!

Great for your 2 & 4 legged kids!

Whether you want a tour with your dog or your kids or both, Pooches & Pinot will put together the best tour, tailored just for your family

Your very own
Tailor-Made Tour

The lovely team at Pooches & Pinot offer
3 different full and half-day tours. You get to build your own itinerary and can upgrade to a winery lunch, request a gin, beer, or cider tasting, and even have a chef-made cake delivered to you for a special occasion with a bottle of bubbly to chill in the fridge to enjoy after your tour. For a giggle, ask to have a cheeky tongue-in-cheek blog written for you, after your tour, from your dog's perspective!


Pick up & drop off

They pick you up and drop you off here at Wiggley Bottom Farm - at no extra charge - couldn't be easier really!


How many of us can come?

They can take up to 6 people and 2 dogs per private tour, in their Mercedes van. 

It's the VIP of all wine tours - bcs they are family-friendly, so your children (both four legged and two) can all come along too!


If you don't have a dog and would like to borrow one for your tour - let us know!!

We had an absolutely amazing time with Pooches and Pinot! It was lovely to be able to enjoy the vineyards and not feel guilty about leaving our dog behind somewhere! Helen was lovely to chat with. Easy to arrange with great communication and the day went so smoothly! Highly recommend! We will be back!

What a great tour, Jeff was great, easy to get along with & had great knowledge of the wines & the area. If you like great wine & great scenery, please give these guys a call & best part is you can bring your pooch. We had a ball!

We had the best tour with poochesandpinot and we would do ANYTHING to go back to the weekend!! The lovely couple behind Pooches and Pinot, Helen and Jeff are genuinely two of the nicest people we’ve met. They didn’t seem like just tour guides, they were like friends you’ve known forever and want to hang out with for hours. Picking you and your pooch up from your accomodation (we stayed at Wiggley Bottom Farm's apt) and taking you on a private local’s tour of some of Healesville and the Valley’s finest, you’re in for a tipsy treat where your four legged friends gets to have the time of their life too!! We couldn’t recommend this tour more. Every place we went to was delicious and friendly and welcomed our beagelier Lola with open arms and the best of hospitality. What a good way to enjoy a few vinos without leaving your best puppy friend at home! We will definitely be using them again and recommending them to all our friends!

' My husband, myself and our labrador Roger had a wonderful time in the Yarra Valley with Pooches and Pinot. Our half a day tour was thoughtfully organised by Jeff and Helen and they collected us from Wiggley. We loved visiting wineries without the guilt of leaving our dog behind. Roger the Lab thoroughly enjoyed himself taking Jeff on walks and pulling him up and down the hills as we enjoyed tasting great wines. I recommend Pooches and Pinot to all our dog owning friends - as well as those without a pooch!'
