Enjoy spectacular scenery in one of Australia’s premier wine growing districts
Our Hunter Valley Private Tours offers a remarkable wine and food experience in Australia’s oldest wine region.
It’s your day, your way – so you can choose to spend the full day in the Hunter Valley or begin your adventure at the Hawkesbury River town of Brooklyn for breakfast and the Scenic Drive via Wollombi and Mount View. If you’re already in the Hunter Valley we’re ready to start as the vineyards open and spend the whole day guiding your group.
At the wine growing region of the Hunter Valley, we have a wealth of options – including a large selection of both vintners and producers of olives, cheeses, chocolates and other delicacies. The Hunter Valley produces excellent Semillon and Shiraz as well as some fine Chardonnay and Verdelho.

Depart Sydney or the Hunter Valley
The Morning – Mount View or Broke Fordwich and Pokolbin – wine tasting
The town of Pokolbin is at the centre of the wine growing region of the Hunter Valley.
So we focus our tours on wineries near Pokolbin. One of the two spots we recommend outside Pokolbin are Mount View and Broke Fordwich where we recommend to spend either the morning or afternoon in one of these areas.
Mount View offers panoramic scenery from Mount View Road. Afterwards, we can visit Carillion Wines or Bria Ridge Wines, and then dine at Bistro Molines.
Is there a selection of wineries you are keen to visit? We’ll plot the route and make sure to hit them all. It’s very much your day, your way.
However, if you’d prefer to leave the decisions to us – we’ll show you our favourites. If some varieties are more your style than others, just let us know, and we’ll introduce you to the right vintners.
We can visit a few cellar doors before lunch – perhaps hitting a Cheese Shop along the way, just for some balance.
Lunch -Boutique Restaurants and Fine Dining
When you are ready for lunch, the Hunter Valley supplies a wealth of options. Favourites include, Café Enzo, The Baumé Restaurant and Brokenwood. Other options may include platters of cheese or charcuterie boards while you taste wine or sit down on a picnic rug outside. Fine dining options such as Bistro Molines, Muse Kitchen or The Margen Restaurant may be arranged.
The afternoon -Wineries and chocolate shop
With our remaining time we’ll fit in more wineries and, perhaps, round out our day with locally made chocolates. Or for those without a sweet tooth – perhaps some olives are more your speed.
When the wineries and most specialty shops close at 5 pm, it’s time to sit back, relax, and keep your eye out for wild kangaroos in the paddocks and vineyards as we make our way back your pick-up place.
