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.
I have highly recommended the tour, because once we actually did it, it was an amazing tour of the Hunter Valley and 3 of its boutique wineries, and the free lunch venue offered the opportunity of a little bit of shopping in small bespoke outlets. I would however, also recommend that the pick up details are made very clear to the company as we were left behind on our first attempt at this trip as they had us down as being picked up from another hotel. We did manage to reschedule our itinerary to fit in the trip a week later.
Had a fantastic day, tour was great, driver was extremely friendly and had a lot of knowledge about the wineries and the region. The day of our tour they had a lot of people delayed and there ended up only being 4 of us on it, they still took us which was great as they possibly would have run at a loss for the day. I totally recommend this tour.
