You will be picked up from your Hunter Valley accommodation in our luxury van and start your day with a private tasting of sparkling whites & reds, accompanied by freshly baked pastries at Peterson Champagne House.
We then go for a scenic drive to one of the Hunter Valleys premium boutique wineries for a look behind the scenes, through the winery, bottling line and the barrel room, where you will be given a taste of premium wine straight from the barrel. This is followed by a private tasting of specially selected white & red wines , including wines not available for taste at the cellar door outlet.
Then it’s time for an outstanding lunch at our own restaurant / delicatessen. You will have a choice of a light luncheon option which consists of a choice of our famous Red wine, White wine or Beer and food tasting plates or a main course including a glass of wine followed by Tea / Coffee.
After lunch we will visit Australia’s most awarded winery McWilliams Mount Pleasant Wines for a private tasting of aged wines and compare them to current vintages. This is followed by a great fun ‘make your own wine’ exercise. You will be guided by experienced staff making your own blend and take a souvenir bottle of this home with you.
We usually find there is ample time to include another unique Hunter Valley experience and can organise a visit to another boutique winery, a chocolate & cheese tasting or partake in our cheese & wine matching experience. We will consult with our group on the day to see what option you would like to take.
Because we specialise in very small groups we can tailor any food and wine tours to your wishes, which may include some scenic trips to the top of the hill, showing you some of the oldest grape vines in the world, finding that elusive bottle of wine, visiting a winery you really want to go to or finding you some kangaroos to photograph. We always find our roo!
