On a recent family trip to the Hunter Valley, we engaged James' Hunter Valley Wine and VIneyard Tours to provide us with a private, day-long winery tour. For four of our family members, it was their first time to the Hunter Valley, so we wanted to show them what was on offer, knowing both our and their taste in wine.... More

After the trip I now know which types of wines I do and don't like! He drove us to lunch and we headed to a few more vineyards,... More

We started the day with a 9:30am pick up from our accommodation by our friendly driver Adrian, it was a full bus with three more pickups from other places nearby. When Adrian told us we would be visiting four vineyards we were initially disappointed however this was unnecessary as each tasting took around an hour and, instead of having to... More

thanks for a great day Adrienne. We experienced a side of the Hunter we haven't seen before. Small wineries with fantastic quality. Kerryn at Ernest Hills should be on the comedy circuit.

I had my Birthday on 26 March with James' Vineyard Tours. James was a real mine of local knowledge and took us to some beautiful boutique wineries. We got to sample not only some lovely wine, but local cheeses and chocolate. Lovely antipasto plate for lunch, and great company of Mark from Sydney and Jess from New York. Small group... More

Brought my American girlfriend all the way to Australia and to the Hunter Valley for a taste of Australian Culture. James was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable about the area and history and just a great guy to have a chat with. Will recommend to my friends and definitely book him again next time i come down.

We did a Hunter Valley full day wine tour with James on the weekend. It was a great day out. From being picked up at our accommodation to visiting 4 lovely wineries, cheese, chocolate and a nice lunch at Blaxlands, James made sure everyone was having a great time. Good group of people and a fun day out. Would definitely... More

Mum had a wine tour voucher to use, so she brought me along and we had an absolute blast. We met lovely people on the tour and we were taken to 4 vineyards that I had never been to before, as well as Pokolbin village for cheese and chocolate tasting. I would definitely do another tour with James.
