An overnight gourmet adventure in the stunning Hunter Valley wine region
Travelling by private, air-conditioned vehicle with a private guide, we make our way by road to the stunning Hunter Valley, Sydney’s and Australia’s oldest wine region, and now also home to boutique producers of beer and spirits. We’ll take the scenic route to the Hunter and enjoy some lovely countryside along the way, including a stop for stunning views and a picnic morning coffee at The Mangrove Creek Dam. We’ll also stop in at the Wollombi Tavern to try some of the infamous Dr Jurd’s Jungle Juice (if you dare). On arrival in the Hunter Valley, we’ll make our way to The Matilda Bay Brewery to enjoy an included lunch and an extensive craft beer tasting. After lunch, we continue the beer theme and make our way to the nearby Potters Brewery to sample some of their renowned beers and take a tour of their brewery. We end our tastings with a visit to the Hunter Distillery, to try some of their local organic gin and vodka.
Staying overnight in local boutique accommodation then allows us the opportunity to experience any one of a number of great restaurants for dinner (own expense) – the choice is yours, and I’ll be happy to make reservations in addition to driving you to the restaurant, and back to your accommodation at the end of the evening.
The next morning’s activities begin with a one-hour guided Segway tour, affording you the opportunity to see some kangaroos and some lovely wine land scenery. Once you’ve shaken the cobwebs out, we spend the rest of the morning and afternoon visiting some of the best boutique wineries and sample the Hunter’s fantastic wines, including Shiraz, Chardonnay and Verdelho. Lunch today will be at a restaurant of your choosing (own expense), and I’ll be happy to make reservations for you. Later in the day we say goodbye to the beautiful Hunter Valley and make our way back to Sydney, where you’ll be dropped at your city accommodation.
