Hunter Valley Wine Tours From Sydney

About the Hunter Valley

Australia's most iconic wine region, the Hunter Valley was instrumental in shaping the Australian wine industry from just after the arrival of the First Fleet into Sydney in 1788. The wonders of this picturesque region still abound today, making it the ideal destination for a relaxed and informative wine tasting tour of some of Australia's finest wineries.

Foundation wineries from the mid 1850s such as Tyrrells & Lindemans, as well as 1960s 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 1870s.

Your host, Richard Everett

About Us

I founded Wine Country Tours in 1995 & since its inception it has been the preferred choice of Sydney's top hotels, for their discerning wine interested clientele, who are looking to indulge in a tailored Hunter Valley wine tasting day tour experience from Sydney.

I am a graduate Oenologist (winemaker) from the world renowned Roseworthy School of Oenology & Viticulture, in South Australia. I have worked in the wine trade for 37 years for some of Australia's most internationally successful wineries, including Penfolds and Lindemans. I have also worked with The Wine Society and The Wine Guild and been a guest speaker at many wine conferences both in Australia and internationally.

My goal is to share this knowledge and passion of wine with you and I believe this is best done through a personal wine tasting tour, with exclusive access to the inner workings of the Hunter Valley Wine Country, located just north of Sydney.

My extensive travels throughout the New and Old World of Wine have given me a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for fine wines, which is sure to rub off on you!
