Hunter Valley

Since the first major vine plantings in the early 1800s, the Hunter Valley has been growing and bottling top drops enjoyed in Australia and abroad. In the nearly 200 years since James Bushby planted his imported vine cuttings, the Hunter Valley has grown to include more than 150 wineries and developed a reputation around the world as a premium wine producing region.

Famed for its semillon, the area also produces world class shiraz, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and verdelho. From established heritage wineries such as Tyrrells and Tulloch, to younger innovative producers and organic wineries, the Hunter Valley offers a range of styles to sample and savour.

To explore this picturesque wine region and sample some of the delicious local wine and produce, climb aboard one of our Hunter Valley Wine Tours!
