Wine tours in the Hunter Valley (2.5 hours drive) are a great way to sample famous Australian wines in a truly beautiful part of the world.
You’ll get to sample legendary drops such as Lindemans, Hardy’s and McGuigan.
Day Trip From Sydney In A Luxury Mercedes Minivan
If you’ve got access to a car, you can drive to the Hunter and back in a day. If you’d rather join a tour, you can hook up with outfits such as Boutique Wine Tours. You’ll be picked up from your hotel and driven to the Hunter in a luxury Mercedes minivan. We’re talking TV, fridge and leather seats.
The owners of Boutique Wine Tours will take you to their favourite wineries, and can alter the route to accomodate your wine preferences.
There’s a maximum of 14 people per group, so it’s pretty flexible. If you like a particular winery, you can even stay behind and have the drivers pick you up an hour later.
For about $100 AUD per person, it’s an easy way to enjoy Hunter Valley wine tasting.
Hunter Valley Wine Tours In A Classic Cadillac Convertible
If you want to spend a night or two in the Hunter, you can be picked up from your hotel in a classic 1960 Cadillac convertible with whitewall tires and huge fins.
It’s quite a stylish way to hop from winery to winery and the photos with the car in the background should be priceless.
At around $600 AUD for a 10am - 4:30 pm tour, it’s not cheap, but if you have 4 people, that’s only $150 each.
