HUNTER VALLEY WINE COUNTRY
Celebrated as Australia’s oldest and most visited wine region. Dating back to the early 1800s, the Hunter Valley is considered the country’s premier food and wine destination and home to some of Australia’s most outstanding wines, winemakers, restaurants, chefs and local produce.
With more Cellar Doors than any other wine region in Australia, the Hunter Valley is perhaps best known for its world-renowned varietals - Semillon and Shiraz - but a tasting here will also have you sipping a broad range of distinctive and innovative wines, from classic to newer varieties.
We take our beer and spirits pretty seriously too, with a raft of new producers and distillers opening up to give visitors a taste of local craft beers, ciders, gins, vodkas and liqueurs. Look out for the new specialty tasting trails in this issue.
As well as producing some of the world’s best wines, Wine Country boasts a savvy and vibrant foodie culture. Delivering everything from delicious hatted restaurants to pub grub, fine dining in the vines to quaint cafes utilising the freshest of local produce, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
Book a wine tasting, savour the menu from a diversity of restaurants and cafés or pick up some produce to take home. Take a wine tour or self-drive and explore. Whatever your preference, you’ll find something for literally every tastebud along any and all of our interactive regional wine & food or tasting trails.
