Food & Wine Lovers Full Day Gourmet Tour
We have earned the trust of local winemakers and chefs to offer you a day of educational experiences that are a lot of fun and unique to our tour. We have created an educational, personalised tour, with a light-hearted approach. Experience one of the best wine tours in Australia with our Food & Wine Lovers' full day tour!
You will be picked up from your Hunter Valley accommodation in our luxury 4WD van and start your day with a private tasting of Sparkling whites & reds, accompanied by freshly baked pastries at Peterson Champagne House.
We then go for a scenic drive to Brokenwood Wines (Awarded 'Best Red Wine in the World' at the 2001 International Wine Challenge in London) for a look behind the scenes, through the winery, bottling line and the barrel room, where you will be given a taste of premium wine straight from the barrel. This is followed by a private tasting of specially selected white & red wines , including wines not available for taste at the cellar door outlet. Then it's time for lunch at one of the many outstanding winery restaurants in the Hunter. You will have a choice of a light luncheon option, including wine or a 4-course lunch with a different wine served with each course.
After lunch we will visit Australia's most awarded winery McWilliams Mount Pleasant Wines for a private tasting of aged wines and compare them to current vintages. This is followed by a great fun 'make your own wine' exercise. You will be guided by experienced staff making your own blend and take a souvenir bottle of this home with you.
After this we normally have time for a cheese tasting at 'The Smelly Cheese Shop'.
Because we specialise in very small groups we can tailor any food and wine tours to your wishes, which may include some scenic trips to the top of the hill, showing you some of the oldest grape vines in the world, finding that elusive bottle of wine, visiting a winery you really want to go to or finding you some kangaroos to photograph. We always find our roo!
Light luncheon option is $249.00 p.p.
4-course luncheon option is $299.00 p.p.
