Media Release: D'Vine Long Weekend Event invites you to experience the Hunter Valley like never before


The Around Hermitage Association is thrilled to present the D'Vine Long Weekend event, an opportunity to discover the Hunter Valley like never before.

Taking place this October Long Weekend (Saturday 30 September - Monday 2 October), D'Vine is an enhanced version of the ever popular Around Hermitage Wine and Food Trail, featuring a handpicked selection of curated experiences, events and adventures held across 14 Hunter Valley host venues.

Guests are invited to indulge in exquisite wines, savour delectable dishes, and immerse yourself in vineyards. Fun times and picturesque views await.

Whether you're a wine enthusiast, a food lover, family, group of friends or an adventure seeker, there's a diverse range of offerings that showcase the region's finest attributes. The Hunter Valley is world-renowned for good reason. However, the D'Vine Long Weekend gives you a chance to experience it in a fresh new way.

"We've worked hard to design a mix of experiences and events that have not been offered in the Hunter Valley before. From mozzarella making classes, ploughmen's picnics, chocolate escape rooms, a street paws festival to a kings' feast and roaming progressive lunch. During the D'Vine Long Weekend there really is something for everyone" Mark Neely, President - Around Hermitage Association.

To ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience, tickets on a convenient hop-on-hop-off D'Vine shuttle service are also available for the Saturday and Sunday of the event, transporting guests between the 14 Around Hermitage host venues. Visitors can safely sit back, relax, and have their travel needs covered as they discover incredible food and dining experiences, engage in unique activities, and meet the passionate makers behind some of the area's most exceptional boutique wines.

Tickets for the shuttle bus and unique experiences are now available for purchase through the official D'Vine Long Weekend website. For a full program and bookings visit
