Enjoyed a weekend of wine-tasting, golf and massages in the Hunter Valley in march this year. My husband and I travelled with our friends, and we went using Scoopon vouchers so it was very good value. Check-in was quick and easy and we were given adjoining Olive Grove rooms at the far end of the the resort overlooking the trees and the dam (would recommend these rooms as they are quiet and far away from reception, the restaurant complex and the main road). Our packages included daily breakfast in the Mill Restaurant (lovely setup and views however the buffet was quite average), free entree and glass of wine each with dinner in The Mill Restaurant on the friday night (menu sounded enticing but again the taste was average), a bottle of sparkling wine on arrival (enjoyed on the terrace outside), complimetary passes to the beautiful Hunter Valley Gardens, and late checkout. The room itself was nice, clean and spacious and quite lovely with the doors opening out onto the terrace/patio and countryside views. It was too cold to swim but we made use of the tennis courts and it was a very relaxing stay. There are two new wonderful wineries literally next door to Tuscany Resort - Keith Tulloch Winery (there is a charge for winetasting but it is redeemable if you make a purchase), and Scarborough Winery (the new Hermitage Cellar door - as good and friendly service as the original Scarborough in Gillards Lane). Can recommend Restaurant Botanica for dinner - great service and food only a few minutes drive down hermitage road.

We are fortunate to be located so closely to the Scarbourgh and Tulloch cellar doors on Hermitage Road.
Looking forward to being able to welcome you back to the Hunter Valley.
Thank you & regards
