Making the most of the Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tour from Sydney

December 15, 2017 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

If you are in Sydney for a few days, you should insert into your travel itinerary the Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tour! Basically, it gives you the chance to explore the region; full immerse into magical natural scenarios and, of course, to taste incredible local wine! Today I will tell you about my own experience and what are the best tips to make the most of it. Let’s get started!

How to rent a car ahead in a comfortable and convenient way

There are several options to go for this tasting tour, but I highly recommend to book in advance the trip and to rent a car to optimize both your time and money to reach the vineyards. I used Holiday Autos and I loved it! It gave me the chance to choose where and when to pick up my car, to select the vehicle and, most of all, it gave me the opportunity to save a lot of money and explore the region at my own pace.

What else you can do in this area

Take your time to wonder at Australia’s oldest wine producing region. Hunter Valley is beautiful and so different from the usual Australian scenario we see made up of cities and beaches! With your car, you can stop by and take beautiful pictures and relax a little bit marveling at beautiful nature all around.

Enjoying the tasting tour with an experienced guide

I went for a private tour of a vineyard and I loved it! It gave me the chance to savor and taste different wines in several wineries, and I learned about the wine making process as my experienced guide was so useful and catchy to listen up! I even had the chance to try some locally crafted beers and they were so good!

Having some shopping at Hunter Valley Gardens Shopping Village

I wanted to buy something local and I’ve heard about this shopping village so I couldn’t miss it! Here you can find everything for some precious memorabilia to bring home with you and remind of your time in the region. I had some delicious lunchtime meals at the picnic area. Amazing experience!

Relaxing at Hunter Valley Gardens and having some fun

Once I was there, I just couldn’t miss the Hunter Valley Gardens! Located in the very heart of the Hunter Valley Wine Country, this was a mind-blowing experience for a nature lover like me! Plants, waterfalls, statues, murals and ten themed gardens showcasing the artistry of gardens around the world and using both native and exotic varieties of plants.. it was terrific and relaxing. The perfect thing to do before heading back to Sydney!

My experience with the Hunter Valley Tasting Tour was satisfying, complete and something I highly recommend for all of you spending some time in Sydney and looking for something different and unique to enjoy the unexpected and more typical side of this beautiful region.

Try to customize your experience as I did so you won’t miss a thing and you would definitely have an overview of everything this place has to offer!
