By limiting our tours to max 10 guests we have access to small family-owned wineries that have excellent wines but do not take bigger groups. Pickup from Hunter Valley only in luxury Mercedes Benz vehicles. My wife's ancestors planted some of the first vines in the Hunter Valley in 1853 and just never left. We have looked after visitors to our region since 1998. In 2008 we added some tours to our business to the delight of many guests. We offer 2 different full day tours, our very popular 'Progressive winemakers Lunch tour' and 2 half day tour to choose from. Or we can tailor a tour to suit your needs. Our aim is to show our guests great food, great wine and have loads of fun. Educational, yet light-hearted. Our tours are unique, over time, we have build up trust with local chefs and (boutique) winemakers, who all offer a personalised experience. Because we only have a small number of guests on our tours we can be flexible and tailor our tours to suit you. We can also assist with your accommodation needs if needed. « less

Everything was perfect. The food, wine, beers all perfect. Zac, our driver, was fun and very helpful and also suggested other great things to do for the rest of our time. Would definitely recommend!

We did the full day food & wine lovers tour.. It was fantastic!! Zac picked us up right on time and delivered us to Peterson's champagne house for a beautiful breakfast and lots of tastings. Then off to Brokenwood for more tastings & a back room tour. It's was fun to see the barrel room and taste direct from the... More

We did a four course degustation progressive lunch / wine tour last Saturday, with 5 other couples who we met on the day, and we all had a riotously good time. Our driver was Jan - the original Fat Bloke - who is very knowledgable, relaxed, and made sure we had a great day out, while always in the background... More

Was a fantastic half day tour on 30 May with Zach ... Some of the wines were not really of my liking however the company and fun host made up for it. The cheese tasting was awesome however the wines that were matched could have been a better mix of wines rather then all from one vineyard. Highly recommended, next... More

We went on the Hunter Gatherers Gourmet Tour and had an amazing time. Zac made it easy to book, confirmed our pick up time, and was there as planned to collect us from our hotel. The day was a mix of cellar door visits, wine and cheese pairing lesson, lovely outdoor antipasto lunch, chocolate and wine tasting, topped off by... More
