Great vineyards and wineries!

Great day trip from Sydney, just about 2 hours drive away from the city. Winery hosts were friendly and we got to try lots of wine. Highly recommended for wine lovers!

Used to be a great getaway location but it has lost its will to live!!! We have been regular visitors to the hunter over the past 40 years and have always enjoyed our time there, but of late it seems that most of the businesses couldn't care less about there patrons. Restaurants and cafes overpriced (we don't mind paying a... More

We attended a charity night for Turia Pitt who was raising money for Interplast. We purchased a Hunter Valley Wine Lovers 3 day weekend at The Vintage. We enjoyed the spacious, well appointed and clean 2 story accomodation as well as the Golf Course (with our own buggy for the weekend). From there we explored the Hunter Valley and our... More

Everything is over commercialised and the cellar doors are too focused on hitting their KPI's than explaining what you want to know about wine, histories and techniques.

Amazing wine country, many different options in wineries. Hire a car and do it your self, or take friends in a bus. Many accommodation options.

Many many vineyards offering free wine tasting. There's cheese, chocolate and jam factories within the estate too. Kangaroos can be spotted in the grassland. And one was "waiting" for us in the centre of the road when we drove uphill and hopped away gracefully as we approached it. What a sight!

We took a hire car from Newcastle to the Hunter Valley. Visiting the wineries was great fun and at each one, we found the staff to be very welcoming and knowledgable. Most wineries offer free delivery, which is convenient for interstate travellers. As there are too many wineries for one weekend, we will have to go back. There is much... More

Take the tourist road from Sydney and meander through quiet country side. Small historic villages along the way and wine tasting. It gets quite developed as you travel east after Broke. Tinkle wood was a special visit with wandering chickens and nice wine. Very organic style.
