Wine Country Tours

Sydney, Australia
About Wine Country Tours
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.

Not only was this undoubtedly the best wine tasting/tour I ever experienced, but it also was an occasion that will paradoxically make all future wine tastings more enjoyable yet pale in comparison. This is due to Richard Everett, a 40+ year wine expert who was our personal
