Spend the day tasting some of the finest wines in Australia on this Hunter Valley Tour.

The Hunter Valley is just 2 hours drive North of Sydney but a million miles away from the stress of city living. The Hunter Valley is Australia's oldest and one of its greatest wine areas, though it produces only a tiny proportion of the countries wines - about 2 per cent. First established more than 150 years ago, it is home to some 80 wineries ranging from famous labels to very small 'boutique' winemakers. The Hunter Valley is renowned for its full-bodied white wines, 'medium weight reds' and some excellent ports.

Some of the vineyards belong to big name companies such as Lindemans, McWilliams, Rothbury, Hardy's, Wyndham Estate and McGuigan. Others, like Tyrells and Draytons, are very old Hunter Valley family concerns which have been there for several generations and remained independent.

On this Hunter Valley tour you will trace the winemaking process from vine to bottle as you tour the vineyards and winery with the scent of crushed grapes in the air. A wine appreciation session will guide you through the textures and tasting of different wines.
