Australia has several wine regions and Yarra Valley, close to Melbourne, is among the most accessible and best of them. This trail, which passes through scenic landscapes, is a treat for cyclists. Most wineries have events lined up for wine buffs over the weekend as well. The real attractions though are the sparkling wines of the region.
Riding a bicycle, coupled with wine-tasting can be dangerous. You need to have a tasting strategy- either sip and spit with great frequency or sample one or two wines at each winery and limit the number of tasting rooms to visit.
