The Hunter Valley, 2.5 hours from Sydney, is Australia's oldest wine production region. With more than 180 wineries it is popular destination for both Australians and international visitors. We make it easy for you with a relaxing itinerary that allows you to sample the best of what this picturesque valley offers. So join us to discover and taste the good things in life.

  • Private Group Wine Tasting
    We visit two very traditional wineries where you'll taste up to twenty different wines including red, white, sparkling and fortified. These local experts will explain the wine making process and the qualities and character of every wine you taste. You'll be an expert in no time!
  • Draytons Winery
    We like to support the locals and Drayton's, one of the Hunter Valley's pioneering winemaking families, are one of the few local winery companies still family owned and operated. While you're settling into wine tasting we're cooking the BBQ. If you find a wine you like, then buy a bottle between some friends and enjoy it with lunch.
  • Sausage sizzle BBQ lunch
    Australia is the land of BBQs so enjoy the spirit of the classic Aussie tradition of a sausage sizzle. To make this lunch even more special we cook some 'bush tucker' for you to try.
  • McGuigans
    This award winning winery is another family owned, Hunter Valley classic with lots of character. Our group sits down in a private area surrounded by enormous barrels filled with wine. With up to 12 tastings of different types or varietals of wine, the laughs and fun keep coming.
  • Cheese Tasting
    See it, smell it, taste it, love it! A regional cheese board full of delicious cheese for you to try in a picnic setting away from the crowds. With tasting notes to help you, you'll enjoy different types of local delights including Fromage Blanc, Brie, Vintage Cheddar, Goats Tomme and Blue Vein.
  • Blue Tongue Brewery
    Time for a cleansing beer, some more wine or a coffee. At the Hunter Valley's first and only boutique brewery you can try the unique Beer Tasting Paddle (own expense) with accompanying notes for each of the brews while you enjoy relaxing in the countryside. Apart from the cafe, there's also two cellar doors nearby if you wish to continue wine tasting at your own leisure.

  • Hunter Valley Village
    Wine, beer, chocolate, fudge, lollies, liqueurs, gifts, souvenirs, books, olives, clothing, art. It's all here so take some time wandering through this quaint village to maybe find a special souvenir of your day in the Hunter Valley.
