We were staying nearby at Bimbadeen Estate (lovely accommodation with fantastic views) and had visited Savannah Estate some years ago and enjoyed their wines so we decided to make this winery our first stop of the afternoon. Somehow we didn’t get to any more wineries that afternoon and managed to purchase a few cases of lovely wine. Joe at the... More

We had a great day with Dan who is the quintessential Aussie but he knew his wines. He took us to a couple of boutique wineries where we were treated to private tasting and full explanation about the grapes and process of making the wine. We also visited a few of the well known well established vineyards. Dan is obviously... More

Charming, romantic, picturesque are few of the words I can think of to describe Hunter Valley which is situated at the backdrop of stunning Brokenback Mountain Ranges. What better way to spend a long weekend than to go for multiple wine tastings accompanied by some yummy boutique cheese while looking at amazing vista!! It took us close to 4 hrs... More

The new motorway has reduced travelling time to the Hunter Valley so it is now an easy day trip from Sydney. You can get there within 2 1/2 hours easy drive from the centre of Sydney.

We took the Newcastle, Hunter Valley Wine Tour with a group from our cruise. Our guide, Mike, was very personable and knowledgable. We visited 4 wineries and a chocolate shop and each stop got better and better. The wines in this region are quite delicious with some different varietals. If you like beautiful scenery, good wine, a smaller group atmosphere,... More

Visited Hunter Valley in December 2013 and were shown around by a local family from Newcastle who have been frequent visitors to this place over the years. The views were absolutely stunning and the staff at the wineries we visited were extremely hospitable and explained the origins of the wine we were tasting, nothing was a problem to them. We... More

Spent 2 days on a recent visit to Australia in Hunter Valley. For anyone who loves mountains, trees, flowers and birds, this is a lovely area. Then add in the wine! And some first class restaurants, too. It is really worth a visit. We stayed in Goosewing Cottage which was delightful. And in the evenings, a few kangaroos joined us... More

We toured the Hunter with Red Carpet Luxury tours earlier this week. We really enjoyed the small group atmosphere rather than a large tour bus. We got to know our 15 or so new friends as the day progressed which made the tour even more fun. My wife is still talking about petting the baby kangaroos which was a quick... More
