Hunter Valley Food and Wine Tours
Personalised Gourmet Food and Wine Tours from Sydney. Our tours provide a unique opportunity for guests to taste locally made wines matched with a regional Australian menu prepared on location by their very own tour guide and chef. What better way to explore the Hunter Valley?
Any old guide can drive a tour bus past a landmark and tell you what it is called. That’s not enough for us. We want to take you by the hand and walk you through the places we visit so that you can touch, see and smell the vines that birth the wine you drink and stand on the land that sustains the food you eat. Our tours are a ‘behind the scenes’ look, showcasing all that the Hunter Valley and Blue Mountains have to offer off the beaten track.
The hero of our tours is that they are intimate and personal. We will transport you to and from the best destinations the Hunter Valley and the Blue Mountains have to offer, often off the beaten track, to show you what we love about these beautiful locations. We will tell you about the food and wine we source from local suppliers and explain why we chose the cuisine. We’ll take you to secluded spots we love and tell you stories about why we love them like you are an old friend visiting our hometown
Start with pickup at your Sydney hotel, and then fuel up for the day with coffee on your way to see the early-morning seafood trading at the famous Sydney Fish Market.
After a freshly cooked breakfast overlooking the Hawkesbury River, continue on your journey to the Hunter Valley, where you stop in Wollombi for the first wine tasting of the day. Learn to roll your own sushi and pair it with local wines.
