With miles of lush vineyards, abundant orchards, and rolling countryside, the Hunter Valley—Australia’s oldest wine-producing region—makes an idyllic daylong retreat from Sydney. Here is a rundown of some options for a perfect wine-tasting tour. 

Group Tours
Group tours to the Hunter Valley offer the biggest savings and often include hotel pickup, wine tasting at a few wineries, and lunch.

Perhaps fly in by helicopter for lunch in the Hunter Valley, get the inside scoop on the region’s foodie hotspots, or enjoy a tailor-made tasting tour of the best wine estates and boutique wineries.
