In its sixth year the Hunter Valley Wine and Food Month will be taking over the region to delight in all things delicious and alcoholic. Warm up your winter with fireside wine tastings, long table luncheons, cheese workshops and cellar door events. Meet the producers, chefs and winemakers behind many of the things that make life worth living.
All through June, Tower Estate winery is providing you with an ideal way to kick off any weekend trip to the Hunter – canapés from their award-winning restaurant, Roberts, paired with drops from their crazy-good cellars. A perfect way to prep your tastebuds for a gorgeous foodie weekend.
Rolling down a fantastically green Hunter valley hillside, Tallavera Grove is the perfect place to kick back with some seriously good vino and excellent cheese. Remember to chew – your mouth will be agape at this view!
Dear Time Out Reader: if we've learned anything about you in the past few years it's that you love three things above all else – booze, fireplaces and high tea. This awesome little lunchtime option gives you all three. Swoon.
Cheese excepted, few things go better with wine than the sweet, sweet sounds of symphonic strings. This special evening features Paul Goodchild on trumpet with Bacchus Sinfonietta – an ensemble embracing talents from the strings section of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Oh, and food and wine! Bookings are essential.
Education and indulgence come together in wine-y awesomeness. First, winemakers take you through vineyards and cellars to explain the grape-to-glass process. Then it's on to Emerson's for an eight-course degustation where you can really appreciate the lessons learned.
