Pooches and Pinot VIP dog-friendly Tours

Pooches and Pinot new VIP dog-friendly private tours taking Melbourne by storm

Turning 6 months old today, Pooches and Pinot is a tour company that offers private dog-friendly wine tours of the Yarra Valley! 

Guests are treated like VIPs on these tours as all their guides are local and well known in the valley so you will be greeted  like long lost friends at every distillery and cellar door you visit, which makes all the difference!

Your puppy is also welcome inside the cellar doors so they will have the best day. 

What can you expect during your Pooches & Pinot Tour?

The company is unique in that they offer private wine tours for people with their dog, visiting all the best pup-friendly Yarra Valley boutique wineries and distilleries. You can be picked up from Melbourne and surrounds or from your Yarra Valley accommodation.

They operate two Mercedes touring vans - so they can take a solo traveller, couples, a family, or a group of four friends, out 
on their very own private tour for a half day or full day.

You will have a ball, enjoying gin tastings at
Four Pillars, cider or beer paddles at Detour/ Napoleon / Watts River Brewery, and cellar doors galore. You could even have a cake made for a special occasion to be served up at one of the cellar doors with candles to blow out, glasses of bubbles and making everybody join in the singing!

If people are travelling without their dogs or sadly don’t own their own, they will also (crazily) offer to lend you George (their Schnoodle) or Henry (their rescue Koolie) for the day!

The Dog’s Bollocks is the all singing all dancing option - where your full day tour will be upgraded to include a crazy blog written about your tour from your dog’s perspective, with fabulous photos, a two-course winery lunch plus you'll be shouted a bottle of their favourite Yarra Valley wine. 
Your pooches may not get to taste the pinot (shame) but they inevitably will get a lot of love and attention from other visitors and staff at all of the cellar doors visited plus they are out for the day with their pawrents so they are happy while their folks are sipping wine - what’s not to love really?

RRP: from $89 pp (4 people) for a Half Day Tour; from $179 pp (4 people) for a Full Day Tour.
