What You Can Expect
Hunter Valley Semillon is widely considered the iconic wine of the region, however, this area is also home to some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. Today you will discover the subtleties of flavor as you sample up to 20 different wines, styles and blends and visit several well-known wineries, such as Irongate Estate,Tempus Two and McGuigans. You will also have the opportunity to buy bottles directly from the cellar door. Then, take a look behind the scenes with a guided wine tour of one of the Hunter Valley's finest boutique wineries.
The Hunter Valley is also known for its premium artisan food products. After your wine tour, enjoy a cheese tasting at a local cheese shop. Pack a picnic lunch or enjoy lunch at one of the cafés (at own expense). This is a great tour to discover and enjoy Australian wines in a fun and social atmosphere.
The tour was fantastic! The best part was Sasha our tour guide. She was wonderful, knowledgeable and entertaining. The wineries selected were very nice and lunch was terrific! Very nice tour van and great that there were only 10 of us. I highly recommend this tour. Cheers, Lisa and Elisabeth
This was a fun trip with a great guide who eagerly shared the history of Sydney and the Hunter Valley development with us. Great selection of different places to visit with time for a bit of shopping thrown in. We did this the day after we arrived so it was helpful to adjust to time change and kept us moving after a long flight from Canada.
