Wine tasting and lunch in the Hunter Valley - what could be more charming? During this full day Hunter Valley winery tour you'll visit some of the region's finest wineries for private tastings. It's a day of gourmet delights where you will sample the best on offer, including local food produce.
Your day begins with a complimentary pick-up from your accommodation in the Sydney CBD. You will then travel to the Hunter Valley in a luxury vehicle which seats a maximum of 18 passengers. During your journey your guides will provide commentary on the beautiful areas as you pass through them. You will also enjoy a video presentation on the Hunter Valley and on wine-tasting in general.
Of the many wineries available on the day, you will have formal tastings at 3 - 4, where you are taken through the wine list together with the group.
This tour is concentrated on the boutique wineries in the Hunter Valley. Only one winery for the day is pre-booked, Iron Gate Estate, where they will give the group a behind-the-scenes tour. The rest of the day is customised by your highly-experienced guides to suit your tastes. They will talk to your group and ask you if you have a winery in mind that you would like to visit, or if there is a certain wine that you would like to know more about. They certainly know how to pick the best from the bunch as they have visited over 80 different wineries in the Hunter Valley.
For lunch you will stop at an award-winning Hunter Valley restaurant. You can choose two courses from a three course menu, plus a delicious glass of fine wine. After lunch you will have some free time to explore the Pokolbin Village area where you can visit more wineries or do some cheese tasting, visit the chocolate shop or galleries or just laze under a shady gum tree.
You will return to Sydney between 5:30pm and 6:30pm. You’ll be pleasantly satisfied after your gourmet day out!
