Our private Hunter Valley wine tours are a perfect wine country experience. We tailor tours to meet your group size, interests and budget.
Five star rated private tours
Our Hunter Valley wine tours are:
Unique – We are spoilt with choice from over 150 wineries, distilleries, delicious chocolate, cheese, olive & condiment produced in the region and amazing restaurants – so no two tours are ever the same.
Personal – We can incorporate your favourite Hunter valley wineries and other venues into the day or we can make recommendations to suit your group.
Flexible – We can pickup and drop off from Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, Maitland and Hunter Valley locations or contact us to discuss other arrangements.
Great Value – We believe in offering affordable options without compromising on quality.
So, sit back, let us do the planning and driving and you can experience some of the Hunter’s finest wines while enjoying the stunning scenery and ambience of the Valley.
Our itinerary will include your selected stops for the day and advise you of any additional wine tasting fees, lunch arrangements and travel times from agreed departure and return points. You will have the opportunity to taste and purchase straight from the wineries themselves, and when you find that one special wine you love, you can talk to the staff face-to-face about joining their wine clubs and accessing special “members only” prices and offers.
Customised Hunter Valley Group Tours

A flat rate can be negotiated for a comfortable, air conditioned 12 seater minibus (includes driver), making it an affordable day out for your group. For larger groups, we will use an additional 12 seater minibus. A small wine tasting fee, usually in the vicinity of $5pp, generally applies to groups of more than 8 people. However, the fee is usually redeemable upon purchase.

Select from a Range of Boutique & International Wineries
We specialise in visits to boutique wineries to allow a personal insight into the wine making process, where personal tasting experiences in amazing cellar doors will introduce you to the wonderful flavours of the Hunter Valley. We can also visit those internationally successful labels from the larger wineries, such as McGuigans, McWilliams Mount Pleasant, Tyrells and Tamburlaine Organic Wines. These international labels have made the Hunter Valley famous throughout the world with many well-deserved award winning vintages.
Craft Beer Tasting & Distillery Tours
Looking for something with a bit more variety, why not add a Craft Beer Tasting at The Hunter Beer Co., the Lovedale Bar or Matilda Bay Brewhouse! These great breweries are creating some special beers right here in the Hunter and many offer tours of the breweries and opportunities to sample such creations such as Pilseners, Lagers, Ciders, Ginger Beers or a Bock.
Another option to spice up the day is a visit to the Hunter Valley Distillery where you will be amazed at the large selection of high quality vodkas, liqueurs, schnapps and gin. There is a flavour for everyone, including Lychee Liqueur, Butterscotch Schnapps and their award winning Copperwave Gin. The tasting experience here is something not to be missed if you love top-shelf spirits with unique flavours.
Sample Gourmet Food including Cheese & Chocolate Tasting
Another option for your day in the Hunter is to visit the wide variety of Foodie Delights in the region. Cheese and Chocolate are the go-to stops for foodies, but we can also show you where to find amazing chilli & chutney, olives and olive oils, honey and smoked meats. Bring your esky and stock up for the evening or stop and enjoy a platter!
