A typical (flexible) day on our Wine Tour...

At Boutique Wine Tours, there is no typical day! We pride ourselves on staying flexible, customising each day to suit the needs and wants of our small group of travellers. Below however is a guide to how your Hunter Valley wine tour might unfold...

Pick-up from your hotel

Begin your Hunter Valley wine tour between 7 - 7:45am with a complimentary pick-up from many city hotels or a convenient Sydney city location. We can also pick up along the Pacific Highway heading to the Hunter Valley.

Travel to the Hunter Valley

Relax in our comfortable small-group, luxury vehicles for the 2 hour drive north to the Hunter Valley. Along the way your guide will explain your day, Lunch and Winery options, and tell you about the history and uniqueness of Australia, its wine and culture. There'll also be time to enjoy our DVD presentation on the onboard television. A rest stop along the way gives you a chance to stretch your legs and grab a snack.

A different itinerary every day

We do not visit the same wineries every day. When you book, feel free to suggest wineries or wine styles you prefer and we will do our best to incorporate them to your day, or rely on the expert knowledge of your guide to shape your day. There are over 80 Cellar Doors in the Lower Hunter Valley, so creating a special, memorable day won't be a problem.

Throughout the day we try to include at least 3 formal wine-tastings as a group. At lunch time, you may enjoy some cheese-tasting, visit the chocolate shop, browse the shops and galleries, or simply laze under a gum tree.

Lunch time

At lunchtime we visit the Hunter Valley Gardens Village. For those doing our Gourmet Wine Tour, you'll visit one of the Hunter Valley's leading, award-winning restaurants for a two course gourmet meal. Your meal includes olives and bread to start (excluding Sunday), followed by your choice of main and dessert from a seasonally-changing menu of local produce. It also includes a glass of fine Hunter wine to top it off!

For those without an included lunch, you can choose on the day to upgrade to our Cafe lunch option, or you can simply do your own thing, or bring your lunch with you.

So much more . . .

Don't forget, the Hunter is about more than just wine. This is a great chance to see some of the countryside outside Sydney, and to spot some of the local wildlife along the way. Kangaroos love Hunter vineyards as well! If you'd like to visit other Hunter attractions, Contact Us to discuss and we'd be happy to accommodate your needs.

Returning to Sydney

More tastings at the Hunter's fabulous wineries after lunch round out your day before a mid-afternoon drive back to Sydney. There'll be time to enjoy a film on the onboard TV, or to snooze away the day's indulgences! The onboard fridge has plenty of room to store your local purchases. You'll return to Sydney approximately 6.00pm, with a complimentary drop-off to your pickup point or nearby.

Overall, a Boutique Wine Tours day means a great day out of Sydney, experiencing the wine, local produce, wildlife and countryside of the beautiful Hunter Valley. Our small group size means you can be sure of personal attention from dedicated and enthusiastic guides, in comfortable and spacious vehicles. There's also the chance to mingle with other travellers and wine-tasters along the way.
