We have designed a personalized, educational tour, with a jolly approach. Our Food & Wine Lovers’ full day tour experience is one of the best wine tours in the region.

You will be picked up from your accommodation in our luxury van, to begin your day at Peterson Champagne House, with an exclusive tasting of sparkling white and red wines, accompanied by brunch.
Afterward, we will take you on a scenic drive to one of the Hunter Valleys premium boutique wineries for a tour of the winery, its bottling line as well as the barrel room. Here you will get a chance to taste the premium wine. You will be required to wear enclosed footwear while in the winery.
You will then don your winemaker’s cap, as you try your hand at winemaking. You will have the chance to blend your own wine that suits your palette. One of the sociable staff will assist you to bottle and cap your wine to take home with you as a souvenir of your visit to the Hunter Valley.

We specialize in very small group tours; therefore, we can tailor any food and wine trips to suit your wants. Our tailored packages include some picturesque trips to the top of the hill, where we show you some of the most ancient grape vines in the world, locating that elusive bottle of wine, a tour of a winery you really want to visit, or locating for you some kangaroos to take those rare photographs. We pride in the way we locate our roo!

Best tour in the Hunter
My mother and I decided to go on the food lover tour because of all the amazing review we read. And let me tell you it did not disappoint. We went on another tour while staying in the hunter and this was by far the best tour. First off our tour guide Mark was amazing. He is studying wine making so was able to answer every question we had. He was extremely friendly and just an all around nice guy. ... more Lunch was amazing as well. I couldn’t speak more highly about this tour and our tour guide I would recommend it to everyone and would do this tour again.

Sit back, unwind and appreciate a day of wine sampling in the beguiling boutique wineries on our Hunter Valley wine visits - customized every day for our little gathering of individual ... moreexplorers. Granted Best Visit in the Hunter Valley three years in succession.

In the Hunter Valley it truly must be about the incredibly famous wines of this present, Australia's most seasoned wine district. However, our fixation on the littler, boutique wineries in this dazzling zone breathes life into the wine-production process, as we appreciate private samplings with those for whom wine-production is an enthusiasm and also a lifestyle. Furthermore, our adaptable schedule implies that we don't visit similar wineries consistently. At noon and for the duration of the day there is additionally time to appreciate a portion of the other awesome nearby harvest.
