HUNTER VALLEY WINE TASTING TOUR

Your wine tour starts at 7.45 at the Grace Hotel, just near Wynyard Station, before heading north to explore Australia’s oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley, on your very own small-group wine tasting tour.

We make a whistle-stop morning tea break along the way, for that essential caffeine and cake break to get you wide eyed and bushy tailed! Before you know it, you’ve arrived in the beautiful green vineyards and lush surrounds of Australia’s premium wine making region, the Hunter Valley.

 

WINE TASTING

We arrive at your first boutique winery around 10.30 am for some breakfast wine! The winery staff will dazzle you with the finer points of the art of wine appreciation. You will learn how to look, smell, sip and identify the amazing tastes and differences of each wine and grape style.

All of the small, exclusive wineries you visit grow their own grapes, so the wines you try are produced on site. Many of the wines you will sample are medal-award winners, and the vignerons (winery owners) are naturally proud to show off their bespoke products

At each stunning winery you’ll get to sample up to 10 different wines. The Hunter Valley is famous for its Shiraz and Semillon grape varieties, so you will be sure to try a plethora of  these two specialties. Between the sipping and spitting, make sure to keep an eye on the vineyards for the odd wild kangaroo.  They are well known for relaxing in the heat of the day among the vines.

CHEESE TASTING

As all wine connoisseurs know, if there is one thing that complements wine to perfection, it must be Fromage! The Hunter Valley Smelly Cheese Shop is a famous local institution, packed to the brim with cheeses of every variety, as well as a wide selection of gourmet delights. You will try a selection of locally made cheeses and learn the finer points of cheese from a dedicated cheese expert. (Own expense)

FINE DINING LUNCH

For the true bon vivant, let us spoil you with a gourmet lunch at one of the beautiful restaurants in the region. The ultimate in Australian fine cuisine, enjoy the superb 2 course meal with an accompanying glass of local red or white wine. With a modern Australian menu, showcasing local produce, there is something wonderful to tempt your taste buds. Relax and enjoy the picturesque views over the vineyards for the ultimate Hunter Valley dining experience.

BOUTIQUE WINERIES

After lunch it’s time to visit the third winery of the day. Each of the charming boutique wineries you visit are very different and specially chosen to give you an intimate experience, away from the larger commercial wineries. Take the chance to wander among the vines, soak up the serenity and be sure to get that perfect country photo.
