Hunter valley wine-tasting
Fabulous wines, great food, beautiful countryside – what more could you ask for?
Just two hours to the north of Sydney, the Hunter Valley is home to some of the world’s finest Semillons and Shiraz, amongst many other great varietals. Here, kangaroos share the landscape with vine-stock that is amongst the oldest in the world, while award-winning wineries are to be found down every meandering country road.
Our day here centres on some of the oldest wineries in the Hunter, starting at Tyrrell’s – family-owned for five generations. Here you’ll enjoy a private behind-the-scenes tour with one of the wine-making team with unique access, barrel tastings, and tutored tasting of Tyrrell’s award-winning Single Vineyard and Winemaker’s Selection wines.
Move on to the breath-taking 360 degree views from Audrey Wilkinson, as we enjoy wine and lunch with a view. Our private tasting will be followed by a picnic lunch in the grounds at Audrey’s, with views over the Brokenback Range. Enjoy it with a bottle of wine selected during your premium tasting.
End the day at the iconic Brokenwood Wines where our Brokenwood Journey will take us on a tasting tour of 6 wines served with matched food to bring out the flavours. Finish in the Barrel Room, with the unique opportunity to taste pre-release wine straight from the barrel.
Highlights & inspiration
The Hunter Valley is home to over 150 wineries, so we keep our time there a little flexible to add in tastings and experiences that might suit you. There’s plenty of other local produce to tempt – from beer, to olives, cheese, chocolate and more.
Step back in time at Tyrrells, exploring the original slab hut where the family first settled in 1858. The beautiful countryside here is also often frequented by kangaroos grazing in the paddocks.
Along with our premium, private tasting at Audrey Wilkinson, we’ll stop here to enjoy a picnic lunch in the beautiful grounds. Here you’ll find a collection of local produce, and a chance to enjoy a casual, relaxed lunch in the countryside.
Our tasting at Brokenwood Wines is enhanced by a tasting of matched canapés, prepared by the chef of the onsite The Wood restaurant.
