Your informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Sydney hotel. Departing from the city, we travel over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to join the Motorway heading north. We will travel directly to the Hunter Valley, which is nestled in the lee of the Great Dividing Range.
En route we will stop for a short restroom break.
First planted 200 years ago, this is Australia’s oldest and best-known wine region and is soaked in history. It’s a dynamic and fascinating area that brims with over 150 top class wineries, indulgent restaurants, gourmet produce and boutique breweries.
TYRRELL’S, VIP PREMIUM TASTING – Discover over 160 years of family winemaking on your visit to Tyrrell’s, one of the oldest family-owned wineries in Australia. Join a member of the Tyrrell’s team on the VIP Premium Tasting Experience as they take you on a journey through some of the most iconic and award winning, Tyrrell’s wines. You will enjoy a tutored tasting of several of the best Winemaker’s Selection wines, including both current vintages and aged release wines that have been carefully selected from the Tyrrell family’s private cellar.
THE BROKENWOOD MATCH – After taking in the beautiful scenery of the Hunter Valley, you arrive at Brokenwood. Established in 1970, Brokenwood Wines has evolved from a weekend venture for self-professed hobby winemakers into one of Australia’s most reputable wine labels. Here we are greeted by one of the friendly concierge staff who will take you to the Match room where you will enjoy a seated wine and food flight with a selection of 5 Brokenwood wines matched with bite-sized canapés*. (Canapés vary according to seasonal produce availability). From here it’s to the restaurant to enjoy a delicious Main course and one side per person. (beverages not included/at own expense)
