We did the 'Hunter Gatherer' tour with a small group of 8 people, and took in more wineries than I could have ever imagined. We started the day at Mistletoe Winery, with the lovely host Gwen introducing us to some 20 wines... at that time of morning most of the group were raring and ready to go! Simon, our expert tour host, gave us a useful piece of advice: if you want to try all of the samples, go for it, but best to pace yourself because there were many more wines to be tasted! He definitely meant it... we were treated to a tasting at the picturesque Calais Estate with two vivacious ladies, followed by another tasting at Peterson's Estate (with an absolutely glorious backdrop of lush, rolling hills) and a long lunch. To ease ourselves into the second half of the tour we went to Hunter Valley Gardens and had a wine and chocolate tasting at Three Ponds Garden Cellars. This was followed by a stop-off at Hunter Valley Chocolate Company for more sampling, and finally we rounded out the tour at Hunter Beer Co, where our jovial host Steve walked us through the entire beer brewing process (a must for any beer-lover). We were treated to three samplings of their knockout beer selection before heading home with very satisfied palates. I would recommend this tour to absolutely everyone, and next time I'll be stepping it up and going on the Full Day Gourmet Tour!
