It can be hard to organize play time to suit everyone’s interests (and budget!). We understand that you require a fresh and unique approach in creating leisure experiences to cater for your group’s range of interests.
The Hunter Valley boasts over 100 wineries, an interesting array of restaurants and cafes, world class gardens, soft adventure activities and local shopping experiences including galleries, antiques, gourmet food and craft stores.
Go beyond your typical cellar door visit with an exclusive behind the scenes winery tour to taste, appreciate and have fun with the popular wine varieties synonymous to the Hunter Valley!
How it works: the tour is designed to cater for the varied levels of interest in wine that may exist in your group. For those light of heart… surprise fun ‘hands on’ team wine games (such as grape stomping!) can bring out the competitive spirit and laughter at each stop, or for the more educated palates in the group… an up close and personal wine appreciation session with a Hunter Valley Winemaker after finishing the games may be more their style. We tailor the tour to suit your group.
What’s in it: 3 hour tour with private wine tasting at three wineries including one winery tour, three light hearted wine games, cheese plates, coach transfers and local experienced tour host.
Extras: mix it up with a visit to a local brewery for a beer tasting, fill a Christmas hamper during the tour for your guests during the festive season, stop for a relaxing lunch or afternoon tea along the way.
