Traveljunkieindonesia.com – The Yarra Valley is the birthplace of Victoria’s wine industry with the first vines being planted in 1838, and is now home to over 80 wineries.
I had the honour and pleasure of being invited to the Domaine Chandon wine tour and tasting at Yarra Valley, Victoria – Australia.
I had always wanted to visit this winery. A dream of mine came true!
