As autumn comes knocking, a glass of wine can be just what you need to keep the chill at bay. Why not couple your love of vino with a relaxing trip to the world’s most livable city?

1. Underwood Wine Bar
The Underwood Wine Bar is the perfect venue to cosy up with a glass in hand and enjoy the intimacy of the petite space. Run by sommelier Michael Underwood, the list of drinks boasts a wide variety of drops from boutique winemakers and brewers around Victoria.
The exposed brick and wood decor sets the tone for an extensive range of delicatessen, all of which are sourced locally. So pick a wine and treat yourself to a selection of antipasti such as olives, hummus and cheeses.

2. Yarra Valley Wineries
A day trip to the Yarra Valley is a great way to soak up the beauty Melbourne and its surroundings have to offer. Since the valley has a slightly cooler climate, it’s perfect for wineries. The region produces some delicious chardonnay, pinot noir and sparkling wine to delight your taste buds.
You can either book a guided tour of some of the best wineries around, or choose your own list and enjoy the panoramic mountain view as you enjoy a day of blissful tastings.

3. The Alps
Around 400 bottles set the scene for an amazingly diversity of wines from the foothills of the European Alps. Take your pick from the 20 wines you can order by the glass, featuring some of the finest gems from the Jura, Savoie and even the Burgundy region.
Of course the Alps doesn’t just offer vino, it also has scrumptious snacks on the menu as well. And if you time your trip right, you could even enjoy their monthly masterclass on premium vintage wines!
