Foundation wineries from the mid 1850’s such as Tyrrells & Lindemans, as well as 1960’s era wineries such as Rosemount & Brokenwood, among many other internationally famous boutique wineries make their home in the beautiful Hunter Valley. As part of your personalised wine tour, you will get to enjoy tasting the finest wines from the best wineries, as well as unique Australian cuisine from the award-winning restaurants.
The Hunter Valley distinguishes itself from other wine regions of the world in its unique expression of excellence in specific grape varieties. The Hunter Valley specialises in producing long ageing white wines made from Semillon, elegant style Chardonnay and spicy Verdelho, as well as earthy style & cellar-worthy Shiraz red wines made from vines planted on their own root stocks in the 1870’s.
