The Wine Country
The Hunter Valley features a landscape of sweeping hills, fresh country air, amazing food, and acres of vineyards. Everywhere you turn you’ll find breathtaking scenery and spectacular views. Surrounded by Barrington Tops plateau, the Hunter Valley’s climate is similar to the Mediterranean climate.

Hunter Valley Half Day Wine Tours Reviews
The quality and value of the wines were excellent on our Hunter Valley half-day wine tour. Wineries were beautiful and full of character.
This trip is the perfect length, 2 wineries are enough to sample over a dozen wines! The unexpected bonus was the free cheese tasting at the Hunter Valley cheese factory.
I had a great experience with the half-day tour with Hunter Valley Tours! Everything was easy and customer-friendly: from the booking to the pickup/drop-off to the pace was perfect!
