For Sydney-siders with a taste for all things wine and gourmet, our home away from home is the world famous Hunter Valley. All manner of delectable tastes await the traveller who ventures north, with rolling hills and jagged limestone cliffs set as a backdrop to this stunning location.
Our day starts with a 7:30 AM pick up at:
The Cambridge Hotel, 212 Riley Street, Surry Hills.
All Planetdwellers day tours depart and return to this location.
After a quick stop to pick up our freshly baked morning pastries, we head north through the leafy Sydney suburbs. With a brief rest stop along the highway, we venture through the Central Coast into the very heart of the Hunter valley, all the while your guide will explain a little about the history and romance of the area we are visiting today.
First stop will be Australia’s leading Organic Winery, Tamburlaine, where your sommelier personally takes you through your choice of style and flavour experiences. We recommend the raspberry dessert Wine for those with a sweet tooth!
Our day continues with a stop at the Hunter valley Cheese Shop, where everyone gets to taste these amazing cheeses prepared from local dairy cattle grazing on the lush farmland of the Hunter Valley and surrounding regions.
Whilst there, why not indulge in sampling some of the areas best olive oils, spreads, jams, relishes and breads (subject to availability).
Just next door, we head into world renowned McGuigan Wines. Your down to earth and extremely knowledgeable sommelier will ensure all needs and tastes are catered for, with enthusiasm and warmth! An extensive array of some truly world class, medal and award winning drops will be tempting your taste-buds!
Just when you cannot take any more of the local produce, vino or delectable tidbits, lunch is served!
Peterson House has been producing some of the areas most distinctive Australian Sparkling Wines for decades, and now, we relax and enjoy our full Australian style A La Carte lunch, with a drink included, of course!
Seated lakeside, overlooking the sprawling grounds and into the far distance of this green lush valley, you will be served your choice of dishes including (but not limited to) Australian Beef, Kangaroo, Duck or for those who prefer non meat options – try one of the award winning vegetarian or vegan choices on request! (subject to availability)
Once you have finished your exceptional lunch, stagger, stroll or roll into the tasting house next door, and be delighted as the bubbly staff assist you in your selection of sparkling wines, from the easy-drinking Blush to the premium Museum blends.
Finally, as we head out the door, we turn left into the Hunter Valley Chocolate Shop – your chance to experience the finest Belgian Couverture Chocolates, some mixed in with the finest local and nationally sourced Australian fruits and nuts. Using a distilled pure fruit oil for infusion, the results are a subtle but true flavour of the fruit. Ensuring to keep the fillings and flavourings very simple, this keeps the chocolate itself the experience!
