Overview

Travel in style to the best boutique wineries in the Hunter Valley on a delightful customized tour of this legendary wine-growing area and its quality wines.

During the day, you will sample up to 30 premium Hunter Wines, some of which are not available anywhere else in the world.

The Hunter Valley is just 2 hours drive North of Sydney but a million miles away from the stress of urban cities. Arriving in the valley you will make a stop at a boutique winery. Here you will do a tasting, along with a behind-the-scenes tour of the wine-making process. From here, the day is customized to suit the group. Feel free to suggest wineries or wine-styles you'd like to try or rely on the expert knowledge of your guide to shape your day. Some of the vineyards belong to famous 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.

Throughout the tour, enjoy 3-5 formal wine-tastings. There'll also be the chance for more tastings on your own over lunch. Or you may prefer to do some cheese-tasting, visit the chocolate shop, browse the shops and galleries, or simply laze under a gum tree.

At lunchtime, you'll visit one of Hunter's top award-winning restaurants – The Cellar Restaurant – for a two-course gourmet lunch including a glass of fine Hunter wine. Choose from a seasonally-changing menu featuring fresh local produce and gourmet choices.

After lunch, enjoy more tastings at Hunter's fabulous wineries before a mid-afternoon drive back to Sydney. There'll be time to watch a film on the onboard TV, or to snooze away the day's indulgences!
