Behind the scenes Winery Tours

Behind the scenes Winery Tours

This time of year the Hunter Valley is buzzing with action as harvest and vintage take place across our vineyards and wineries. If you’re visiting the region over the next few weeks you may come across large groups of pickers out at dawn until dusk harvesting this year’s crops, or tractors on the roads transporting tonnes of fruit from the vineyard to be crushed in the winery. Whatever the activity - it usually means vintage and with it, a crop of new whites and reds to enjoy. There is no better time to partake in a behind the scenes winery tour whilst the wineries are in full swing with their work.

Summer Semillons

Summer Semillons

The warming weather means refreshing, easy drinking vinos are to be chilled on ice, and what better poolside beverage to have in your glass than a clean, zesty Semillon? Often referred to as the region’s white icon variety, Hunter styles of Semillon are known for being a young, light, lemon citrus wine before blossoming into a highly complex, nutty, toastier style with a bit of age. Here are some of our top summer drinking Semillons for the warm weather.

Breaking Ground for Innovation

Breaking Ground for Innovation

The Hunter Valley is a region that has built its reputation around relatively traditional winemaking, signature varieties, family values and in general, doing what’s been perceived as “what the Hunter does best” for over a century. Fast forward to the 2020’s, some 150 years after the region’s inception, there are some exciting developments, some new entrants to the market, some traditionalists challenging the norm, and some young blood bringing more responsible farming and winemaking practices into their businesses and worldly experiences into practice back in their valley.
