Which cellar doors do we visit on the Hunter Valley Wine and Beer Adventure Tour?

We mix and match the 3 we pick from this list so every tour is slightly different. We aim for a mix of boutique and mid-sized cellar doors and try to support locally owned and operated venues rather than the large corporates that you see in bottleshops. It’s time to shake it up and taste something different!

Some of the cellar doors that we usually visit include:

Ernest Hill wines
Wandin Valley Estate
Wynwood Estate
Briar Ridge wines
Macquariedale Organic wines
Travertine wines
The Garden Cellars
Tintilla Estate

McLeish Estate
Allandale wines
Gartelmann wines
Kelman Estate
Hermitage Road cellars
Oakvale wines
Harkham wines
Worthington’s Vineyard
