Sip, slurp and sample your way around the Hunter Valley on this interactive, entertaining and informative day tour!
Departing Sydney, we head out over the famous Harbour Bridge north toward the luscious fertile lands of the Hunter Valley one of the most famous wine growing region in Australia. Delight and tantalise your taste buds as we experience a variety of cellar doors and farm gate local produce tastings. This unique exploration of the Hunter Valley region provides a variety of food and wine experiences to showcase the best of the regions local produce - there is something for everyone! And let’s not forget the wine! In this picturesque hinterland famous for its Semillon, but the region also produces more than 20 varieties of wine including Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Verdelho. We will sample a range of wines from our favourite Boutique cellar doors, selected for their commitment to excellent customer experience and quality wine - with two tastings before lunch and one in the afternoon.
At lunchtime, we enjoy a delicious cafe lunch in the picturesque Hunter Valley Garden Village. Alternating between the lovely "The Winner is Oscars" and beautiful "Cypress Lakes Country Club" we allow plenty of time to relax and get to know your fellow travellers. After eating you can browse the bespoke collection of boutique shops, galleries and sample more of the local produce.
Checkout the Hunter Valley Chocolate Company, The British Lolly Shop, Kissofire Hunter Valley Liqueurs or The Garden Cellars, additional tastings at guests’ expense.
After a relaxed paced day of sipping, sampling and slurping our way around the valley, we will start to make our way back to the hustle and bustle of Sydney which by now seems a world away. With comfort stops on the return journey, we arrive back in town with plenty of time to grab a meal or take in a show.
