After all guests have boarded, the coach will make its way over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and head towards the beautiful Hunter Valley. The lush countryside is not just famous for its vines and wines, but also has many stunning views up its sleeve. No wonder the region gets over 2.5 million visitors every year!
The first point of call is the historic McGuigan Winery, a family-run business since the late 1800s. With a wide repertoire of wines that are famous in Australia as well as around the world, learn more about the art of ‘wine-making’, while tasting some of their fine wines.
Next stop is Hunter Valley Resort, located in the heart of Hunter Valley, amidst 40-year-old Shiraz vineyards. Peek into their cellars and familiarise yourself with the local wine-making practices. A delicious lunch comprising a choice of 5 mains with homemade breads to share is served, accompanied by a glass of wine, beer or soft drink. Post lunch, enjoy wine tasting at the cellar door. You can also buy a beer tasting paddle from the onsite brewery (own expense).
After lunch, the tour moves to the Leogate Estate, located on the charming Brokenback Range. A 50-hectare property, the vineyard produces award-winning wines such as Chardonnay, Shiraz, Verdelho and Tempranillo. Started in mid-1970s by the late Len Evans AO, OBE, who is recognised as ‘the godfather of the Australian wine industry’, Leogate Estate gives you the opportunity to sample these famous wines.
After a relaxing day of sampling wine and enjoying sweeping views of the countryside, finish your day at the Hunter Valley Chocolate Company. Sample locally-made chocolates and fudge and see the onsite production room, before getting back to Sydney just in time for dinner.
