Activity Overview
We invite you to come and try the most popular cheese and wine pairing experience. This event has been held in Hunter Valley for over 4 years. This event will help you learn how to perfectly match your cheeses with a delicious wine. Take your taste buds on a global tour with our savory hour of 9 world-popular cheeses and small goods, paired with 9 excellent Hunter Valley wines, and coupled with lots of laughs in the company of our sociable guide.

This experience will help you learn how to skillfully select any cheese and pair with certain varietals of wine. You will also understand why a Hunter Valley Semillon can be a match made in heaven when served with one cheese, but a failure when paired with another.
This experience offers you the best chance to do a wine tasting with a difference, and is ideal for Cheese Lovers, making it the best cheese and wine matching event in the Hunter Valley.

We invite you to join us on our half-day tour where you relax with a Cold beer as we Chauffeur you around. This beer belly tour by Two Fat Blokes was inspired by the need to offer ... morea unique beer experience, having organized wine tours for over 9 years. This event is tailored to cater for those heroes who would not like to be spotted dead, downing a lovely bottle of rose with their pals or adding up an extra glass of dry white wine.
This half-day beer belly tour offers you a chance to enjoy some excellent craft beers from 3 of the Hunter Valley’s top brew houses.
We have carefully researched for the best new Hunter Valley made boutique beers, therefore, all you need is to sit back, and relax with a cold one, as we chauffeur you around.
Two Fat Blokes is keen to ensure that you appreciate our delicious Hunter Valley wines, therefore, if you or your partner may prefer a wine, in each location that we visit, the beer tasting can be swapped with a wine tasting.

You will get the opportunity to grab an extra beer of your choice, as we head to the van for your next beer experience!

Visit the IronBark Hill Brewhouse, where we have reserved the best place in the house for you to sit back and savor a 3-beer paddle, or alternatively, a wine-tasting, with a snack.
