Just outside the north-eastern suburb of Lilydale is Melbourne's most well-known wine region. The former residence of opera singer Dame Nellie Melba marks the unofficial entry point, which leads to dozens of wineries dripping with old world charm: Chateau Yering (Victoria's first), Domaine Chandon, St Huberts, De Bortolis and Loveys to name a few of the 30 odd that are dotted around the valley. Drop in at Yarra Glen Dairy for a quick cheese tasting when the wine gets too much. This is a great area for cycling, being fairly flat and with well-spaced wineries for regular refreshment.
