Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia

Hunter Valley


The land of the Wonnarua People, Traditional Owners of the Hunter Valley region. 

Australia’s most famous Semillon region is also our most visited wine region. The first vines were planted in the 1820s by families whose names live on in some of the best wine brands in the country.

Nestled in the lee of the majestic Brokenback Range and cooled by ocean breezes, the Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s best-known wine regions. It lies approximately two hours’ drive north of Sydney and to the north-west of Newcastle.

The Hunter Valley is home to over 130 wineries producing a wide array of exceptional wines. It is recognised as a world leader in dry white wines made from Semillon. Hunter Valley Semillon is regarded as Australia’s unique white wine.

Hunter Valley wines are light and relatively low in alcohol, which makes them a great accompaniment to food. The region specialises in fine dining, quality producers, great chefs and food and hosts a busy calendar of food and wine events. It is also renowned for its national parks, wine and cooking schools, fine dining, spa retreats, and great golf.

HISTORY

The Hunter Valley wine region is Australia's oldest continuous grape growing region. Its first vines were planted in the 1820s and today is home to some of the oldest vine stock in the world. The region has a rich history of Australian wine pioneers that include Audrey Wilkinson, and great wine names with the sixth generation family members at the helm.
