All aboard and the fun begins! Sit back and enjoy the drive as we head north up through the spectacular scenery of Kuringai Chase National Park and the Hawkesbury River. A whistle-stop tea and wee break en route, for that essential, pick-me-up coffee hit before rolling into your first winery mid morning.
WINE TASTINGThe Hunter is famous for it Shiraz and Semillion grapes which, of course, are magically turned into the nectar of the gods - Vino! Taste up to 10 different varieties of wine at each of the 3 boutique wineries you will visit. You’ll learn about the process of grape to bottle from a passionate Vigneron. After a few quick tips, you will be swirling your wine like a pro and commenting on its legs and saddle! No horse racing involved. So buckle up your bride to be, lock down your hen or birthday boy or girl and let the appreciation begin.
