Bikes are a great way to get around the wineries at Hunter Valley.
Our friends had used Grapemobile before and highly recommend them. We were collected by Glen from our campsite and he took us to the starting point at their winery (Pokolbin Brothers). While we were fitted up with helmets and bikes we tried the gorgeous coffee and sampled a few of their wines.
Glen was such a good laugh and set us up for what was a fantastic day.
He recommended trying the Scarborough Vineyard. It isn’t the most straightforward place to find…look out for the green wire circle on the fence post, but well worth it.
We were shown to a table and presented with platters of cheeses, crackers and chutneys. We then sampled around 9 wines. The staff made us feel extremely welcome and were very knowledgeable about the wine we tried.
The majority of the vineyards will delivery any wine you purchase back to the Grapemobile or if your staying locally, to your accommodation. It is worth asking before you buy as you don’t want to be carrying wine around with you on your bikes!
I would also recommend the picnic boxes that are advertised at Grapemobile. You can get them from Calais Estate Vineyard and there is plenty for a lovely lunch while overlooking the beautiful scenery.
Moorebank is also well worth a visit. The lady who runs the vineyard is extremely interesting and gave us lots of information about the vineyard, the history and the creation of the wine. It is also nice to purchase a bottle of their wine and enjoy outside in the lovely surroundings. Make sure you go say hello to the sheep!
