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

Loved this tour, the hosts were brilliant the wineries fantastic and the food was great. Every winery was very informative and a welcoming atmosphere. We did the brewery at the end which was a nice finish to the day

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the half day tour. All the wineries we visited where great, the wine experts were engaging and very knowledgable. We had a small group of 8 which was nice, and the van was very modern. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone, novices and experts alike. I went in knowing very little, and... More

What an awesome day we had on the Two Fat Blokes Hunter and Gatherers tour. Blessed with BJ and Craig’s welcoming hospitality, engaging conversation and superior driving skills we spent a perfectly blended day of wine tastings, fine food and great fun in the Hunter. Picked up from our accommodation we had our first taste of grape at Mistletoe winery.... More

I took my partner on the progressive food/wine tour with the Two Fat Blokes as part of her 30th birthday present back in March 2014. What a great choice! Our tour guide (I am embarrassed to admit I forget his name) was extremely knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting info about the area and different wineries. The 5 different... 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
