Private Wine Tours

in the Hunter Valley

Award winning private wine tours since 2012.

You’ll be chauffered in style – with luxury, privacy and sophistication unmatched by the usual group tour.

Create your own special day or we’re happy to make some suggestions – premium boutique wines, artisan cheeses, hand made chocolates, organic vodka, craft beers – it’s all here!

We love creating those special days which are truly memorable – anniversaries, family reunions, marriage proposals, romantic weekends!

We enjoy a fantastic reputation for our exemplary personal service and love to share our day with lovely people who share our passion for quality.

It’s your day – your exclusive private tour!

That’s our Guarantee!

We look forward to chatting with you!

Your hosts,

Grahame & Denise

Trip Advisor certificate of excellence

Still the One!

Since joining Tripadvisor in 2014,
we have been awarded the
Certificate of Excellence every year!

Later this year, and when things have returned to (sort of) normal, we are looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones, however we are experiencing major changes to the Hunter lifestyles.

The Hunter tasting experience has changed so we are asking all our guests to be both tolerant and flexible. There are strict guidelines for wine tasting venues and eateries, limiting the number of guests and time you can spend at each venue.

Venues require bookings by appointment and strict adherence to social distancing,  also more venues have introduced tasting fees, either prepaid with booking or on arrival.

So that we can all stay safe, we are restricting our tours to just 2 guests, sitting in the rear seats.  

We’ll have plenty of hand sanitiser and wipes, plus all ‘touch’ surfaces will be wiped each time you leave the car.Later this year

How do we make a booking?

To start the booking process, first check our availability (we have just 2 bookings per day) – we’ll respond very quickly, and if we’re available, our response will have a link to our online booking form.

Check our availability!

Remember – we take just one booking per car per day, so once your tour is confirmed, the car is exclusively yours!

Payment

To secure your booking we ask for a $100 deposit. One month prior to your tour we will contact you to reconfirm details and request the balance ($350.00) – when the balance is received your tour is locked in and our normal cancellation policy applies.

Can we choose our tastings?

Yes!

Every day is totally flexible – many guests have their own tasting wishlist and we’re happy to create an itinerary to suit – or to offer some suggestions.

With tastings taking around 45-60 mins, we aim for 3 tastings before lunch and 2 tastings after lunch (depending on lunch, of course!)

Don’t forget our free cheese tastings and olives tastings!
