Start your day with morning pickup from one of three convenient locations around Sydney. Then relax and sit back for the approximately 2.5-hour drive to the Hunter Valley.
Arrive at Tyrrell’s Winery where the annual Jazz in the Vines festival takes place. Enjoy the lovely 15-acre (6-hectare) spread and views of the Brokenback Mountains.
Try the legendary food and wine of the fertile Hunter Valley by purchasing prepared foods, cheese and other produce from local restaurants that set up booths at the festival. The chefs feature a range of Hunter Valley products in dishes that boast fresh seafood, gourmet meats and sausages, and farm fresh produce.
Glasses of red, white and sparkling wines are available for purchase from premier Hunter Valley wineries such as Tyrrell’s, Tamburlaine Wines, Drayton’s Winery and Peterson House. Both Tyrrell’s and Drayton’s have roots in the valley that date back to the late 1800s and are family-owned and operated. Peterson House specializes in sparkling wines and Tamburlaine is Australia’s largest producer of organic wines.
At the end of a fantastic day, simply meet your coach at the designated time to return to your starting point in Sydney.
Pro tip: Rent deck chairs at the festival if you don't want to hassle with bringing your own chair. You can also take in your own picnic and non-alcoholic drinks (however glass containers and alcohol are not allowed on the festival grounds).
