When you visit most wineries, there is always usually a cellar door with knowledgable staff who are passionate about their wines and their craft, and are happy to let you sample their wares with the understanding you are most probably going to leave with at least one bottle. For wine lovers, we all love the cellar door.
Hungerford Hill Wines has what seems to be a unique-to-the-Hunter-Valley foodie experience, in addition to the normal cellar door option. For the paltry sum of $38 (less if you are a HH wine club member), you get to sample 4 of their Collection wines plus matching foods, with a personalised commentary on how the wines match the food, andy why. We had Amanda today, and for someone who only works there on the weekend, she knew so much about the wines, the food, award-winning Muse restaurant, everything! She is an asset to the company, and in from a customer experience perspective, I loved the fact that she was almost as passionate about food as I am!
My mother came down from QLD's Sunshine Coast to visit, and the 90 minutes we spent at Hungerford Hills absolutely made her weekend. A 10 out of 10 experience for me!
I have a simple recommendation for anyone. Do this. $38 for an almost 2 Chefs Hatted mini degustation with matching wines will be one of the best things you can do in the Hunter Valley
