Your host is Richard Everett, the only Oenologist (or winemaker) conducting a small group or private wine tour of the Hunter Valley Wine Country. His guests get a unique behind the scenes insight into how the best wines of the Hunter Valley are made, with private guided tastings of the top wines at the best & most interesting of the 140+ wineries. Richard conducts the wine tastings, not the sales staff at the wineries, so you are spared the heavy sales pitch of their commercial wines & get to experience many wines not offered to the general public. Morning tea is at the famous Peppers Guesthouse & lunch is at the award winning Muse Cafe. Tours are available ex Sydney or from within the Hunter Valley.

Richard Everet, a world class wine expert has had a 30 year career in the wine industry, beginning with an enology education, followed by experience at all levels of wine making and selling. He is truly a gem, and a rare find, because he clearly knows his stuff and imparts information that few other people I have run across.

We had the pleasure to visit Hunter Valley and through the great recommendations on Tripadvisor selected Wine Country Tours. Visitors from the US, we wanted to understand more about the region and Australian wine. Richard Everett was not only knowledgeable but answered our numerous questions. We were not rushed by visiting a lot of wineries but had the opportunity to... More

My son and I could not recommend more highly this tour offered by Richard Everett. We have enjoyed past wine tours in many different wine regions of Australia. Whilst enjoyable, these will usually involve a driver, albeit knowledgeable in the delights of an area, taking you to different cellar doors, where the focus then is on what that winery tells...

The wine tour was a present for my boyfriend's birthday. We are both not wine experts. I usually do not get any further than: 'I like it' or 'I don't like it'. But Richard made it very accessible and informative for everybody. We learned a lot, we bought some good wines, we had a great lunch and we had an... More

I signed up this tour for my friend's birthday as he's a wine lover, although I don't drink. Thought I would just be an observer but I in the end participated in the two wine-tasting sessions and stayed sober! Richard is a brilliant storyteller, his knowledge on wine, culture and lifestyle made the tour very special and enjoyable. His excellent... More

I’ve been going on wine tours for over 20 years and had some amazing experiences but this had to be the best ever from every aspect. Our Hunter Valley Wine Country tour was top quality from the word go. Everything was perfect for us. We were picked up on the dot from our hotel in Sydney and taken to the... More

Over the past few years I have been privileged to do wine tours in several famous wine regions around the world. Most of these have been very good at least. The tour with Richard took my wine tour experience to an entirely different level. It was a first-rate master class in understanding and appreciating wines. Here are some important things... More

Richard really knows his wines! The way in which we went through each "bracket" comparing three of each type of wine really helped my friend and I to better understand the nuances and characteristics of each varietal, as opposed to other wine tours where you down a quick taste of a white a rose and a red or two.
