Tour description

Enjoy a full day wine tour from Sydney to the Hunter Valley wine region and sample wines at a selection of 5 local wineries/cellar doors, one being the Hunter Valley Distillery, one where you will sample cheese and wine and a third where you will sample chocolate with local wine. You’ll travel in a luxury Mercedes-Benz bus, stopping at four Hunter Valley wineries/cellar doors (tasting rooms) for wine tasting samples. Enjoy a cafe lunch and a visit to a local chocolate shop outlet in the afternoon. If you wish, you may stay in Hunter Valley on your own at the end of the tour instead of returning to Sydney. We can arrange to pick you up the following day and return you back to Sydney. 

After pickup by luxury bus in Sydney, your day trip starts by heading up the Pacific Highway and M1 Highway to Hunter Valley, stopping 90 minutes from Sydney for a tea or coffee break (own expense). (If you're staying in the Hunter Valley region, you can be picked up later in the morning from Cessnock or Pokolbin.)Throughout the day, you'll visit four wineries for tastings. Wine tasting is accompanied by a detailed description of the vineyard, the vintage you're tasting, and the style of wine typically made by the winemaker. Lunch is enjoyed at one of several venues, depending on the day, and you'll also visit cheese and chocolate outlets, which are popular stops in wine country. The tour ends in Hunter Valley in the mid-afternoon. If you're traveling back to Sydney, relax on your coach for the return drive to the central business district, where your day trip ends with drop-off.
