the ultimate Hunter valley day
Enjoy the Hunter Valley without the hassle, with return helicopter flights from Sydney
For those looking to combine luxury with ease, this itinerary gives you the very best of the Hunter Valley with the ease of return helicopter flights to and from Sydney to make travel easy. In the Hunter, your guide will escort you between wineries for a seamless day.
Begin at the historic Tyrrells vineyard – family-owned for five generations – where a special experience awaits as a member of the Tyrrell family escorts you on a tour of their Sacred Sites vines. Here you’ll find vines over 100 years old that contribute to some of Australia’s most sought-after wines. This is an intimate look into a passion for wine-making that has stood the test of time.
At Brokenwood Wines, home of the revered Graveyard Shiraz, you’ll head to the Graveyard Tasting Room to experience their Soil to Cellar experience. Begin with Semillon paired with oysters, tour the winery, and then sit down to a superb four-course degustation lunch paired with Brokenwood wines. Retire to the Barrel Hall to taste pre-release Graveyard Shiraz, and take a bottle of this coveted wine home with you as you depart.
Finish the day with the superb views from Audrey Wilkinson, with a tasting of their fortified wines served with local fromage, before your heli whisks you away back to Sydney.
A spectacular day – and cheers to that!
