Some cellar doors may waive this upon purchase of a bottle of wine and we always aim to visit cellars that do this. We visit 3 x cellar doors on the tour so please bring 3 x $5 just in case. If you wish to “sit out” and not taste at 1 or more venues please let us know in the Special Requirements box upon booking so we can let the cellar doors know accurate numbers. Our Hunter Valley friends really appreciate your support and your help so they can simply cover costs and keep offering the amazing produce that we all love!

Covid Safe Badge

Keeping our guests as Covid Safe as possible:

A fun day is a safe day, right? 

We want everyone to have a fantastic day on our tours (and the only hangovers you experience be wine related ones!) so in order to make our buses as safe as possible our vehicles are maintained to the highest standards of hygiene (floors and handrails disinfected and seatbelts and fittings wiped between tours) and we ask tour guests to use the complimentary hand sanitiser onboard at the front of our buses and feel free to spread out (and relax!) whilst onboard. Members of the same group/family can of course sit together.  As this is a mixed groups tour there will of course be other guests onboard that are not part of your party.

“I love showcasing the hidden gems of the Hunter Valley through memorable and personal tours that welcome those interested in wine to those who have never before been on a wine tour.

I only bring groups to cellar doors where I have personally tasted the wines, I personally choose to drink those wines myself (when I’m not driving the bus!) and can attest to the quality and personal service of the cellar door staff (each and every tour as I always accompany the group to every tasting).

It’s all about introducing the unique qualities of Hunter Valley wines and local produce in a fun, relaxed, friendly and welcoming environment – without the jargon of conoisseurs!” – Suzanne
