Owner description: Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tours specialises in small personal wine tours to the Hunter Valley. We operate a daily wine tour from Sydney as well as a daily local wine tour operating from within the Hunter Valley and also regular departures from Newcastle. Why not join us for a fun day touring the wineries of the oldest wine region of Australia? You’ll travel in comfort and style in one of our luxury Mercedes Benz vehicles and enjoy private wine tastings at a great selection of Hunter wineries, large and small, enjoy a choice of 3 lunch options at Epicure Cafe and also visit the local cheese and chocolate shops during the day. This tour is a great way to experience the Hunter.

I had Neil as my guide/driver for the day. It was my first visit to Hunter Valley and am sorely disappointed by his picks. Lambloch and Blueberry Hills cellar doors are so boring with no character. Plus Neil made no effect to make the tour interactive and left us mostly to our own. The last stop at the chocolate and cheese shops were very rushed. What I'm most unhappy about was how Neil insisted on dropping me at a junction near my hotel, even though I have 7 bottles of wine to carry instead of right at the hotel because it'll take him extra time.

This was our second wine tour in the hunter our driver was doug we were picked up on time in a clean modern Mercedes van which seated 14 . We visited 5 wineries with two being a real standout they being Ridge view and Travertine winery both were excellent tastings .With most people buying wine from these two .We took the lunch option which was at Blue Tongue brewery and really enjoyed the beef cheeks . My only criticism of the day was the tasting at Blueberry Hill the gentleman was very knowledgeable about his winery but he lacked any personality so it become a bit boring especially having this tasting late in the day when everyone was becoming a bit merry .But overall the day was very good we'll organised and a good selection of cellar doors would definitely use this company again .

We went on this tour with mike as our driver, and had a brilliant day!! Mike had A LOT of local knowledge, and was entertaining and extremely friendly & helpful.
We visited 1 major winery and 4 smaller boutique wineries with lunch at blue tongue brewery with an hour to spend there. We got the included lunch, served almost instantly, It was ordinary, not terrible. There was also an option to buy your own from the cafe.
Along with wineries we also stopped at 2 cheese shops and a chocolate shop - free samples included.
The wineries visited were a great range and variety of what the hunter valley have to offer! And each were very passionate about what they do, and the wine they produce!
Safe to say we went home with a lot of wine!!
Big thanks again to Mike for a great day!

Our tour guide Rob was very informative and interesting about everything you could think of wine related. We went to 5 different vineyards, tasted some fantastic wines, then went to a cheese shop and chocolate shop - yummo! It couldn't have been a nicer day out!!!
