Tulloch Wines

Hunter Valley

The flexibility offered is a particularly appealing aspect of the tastings at this upmarket winery. Pick from around 30 bottles on the free tasting of six wines, or kick back with charcuterie or chocolate matches. Better still is the option to pay ($8 for one or $24 for four) for fabulous cellar-aged 'museum' drops – it's great to contrast these awesome wines with their younger siblings.
