Meet your guide at your Sydney hotel and settle into your private vehicle for the drive to the Hunter Valley. Gaze out across Sydney Harbour as you drive over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, then wind along the Hawkesbury River as the buildings give way to rolling vineyards and lush orchards.
Arrive at your first boutique winery and feel like a VIP as you are ushered inside to explore the winery and sample a selection of fine red or white wines. Continue to two or three additional wineries, chosen depending on your individual preferences, and enjoy a comprehensive introduction to the wines of the Hunter Valley.
Along the way, get the opportunity to peek behind-the-scenes of a working winery, sample wine straight from the barrel and get the inside scoop on varietals like Shiraz, Semillon, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Of course, you don’t want to drink on an empty stomach, so you’ll also have the opportunity to taste delicious regional cheeses and chocolates at a local artisan shop, or stop for lunch (own expense) at a restaurant of your choosing – your driver will be happy to offer recommendations.
After a full day enjoying the stunning scenery and fine wines of the Hunter Valley, return to Sydney, where your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel.
