Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Unique, private luxury full or 1/2 day tours. 2- 10 guests only. By limiting our tours to max 10 guests we have access to small family-owned wineries that have excellent wines but do not take bigger groups. Pickup from Hunter Valley only in luxury Mercedes Benz vehicles. My wife's ancestors planted some of the first vines in the Hunter Valley in 1853 and just never left. We have looked after visitors to our region since 1998. In 2008 we added some tours to our business to the delight of many guests. We offer 2 different full day tours, our very popular 'Progressive winemakers Lunch tour' and 2 half day tour to choose from. Or we can tailor a tour to suit your needs. Our aim is to show our guests great food, great wine and have loads of fun. Educational, yet light-hearted. Our tours are unique, over time, we have build up trust with local chefs and (boutique) winemakers, who all offer a personalised experience. Because we only have a small number of guests on our tours we can be flexible and tailor our tours to suit you. We can also assist with your accommodation needs if needed.

My partner and I were picked up and from the first minute Nathan was a gem. Gave us knowledge of the area and with him having chef experience knew what he was talking about. Gave us an extremely great day and plenty of laughs. So glad we were blessed to have you as our guide. Your're a unique man. We will definitely be back for another great experience. Thanks again to Nathan and (two fat blokes)

“Easy going & informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

My wife & I had the pleasure of doing the whole day tour with Zac which we had decided to do as we had never visited the area before We were the only ones on board so it was really like having a taxi to ourselves. Zac was very well informed about the area & the wineries & was very professional & extremely courteous. Ended the tour with a visit to Potters Brewery which was very informative about the brewing process. I guess in retrospect we would also have liked to see some wine making processes as well. We did end up taking his advice on a few wine choices as well. All in all very good day thanks !

Myself and some friends went on the full day wine tour with Nathan, who was friendly and very knowledgeable about the wineries and other stops we made. We had a very enjoyable day, thank you.

“Fantastic Long Lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

We did the Progressive Lunch tour, it was part of a mystery birthday present for my wife and we had a great time, she never stopped smiling!
Our guide for the day was Roger who had an easy friendly manner and was very informative on all things about the Hunter and it’s wine.
We started at Wandin and yes there is a connection with an old TV program, then onto Peterson House followed by Bimbadgen Estate. The food and wine were of good quality and were plentiful, the first and last being the pick of the venues.
Usually there are four places to visit, but being a Tuesday some of the places normally used were closed, it did not make a difference as you will not leave the tour hungry or thirsty!!!!!
I rate it as a first class Long Lunch!
