Hunter Valley Wine & Food Festival, presented by Wine Selectors, is back for 2021.

Curl up beside an open fire, warm yourself amongst outdoor firepits, enjoy hearty reds, and lazy lunches that roll into dinner, celebrated under the crisp winter open skies. As our vines go into hibernation, we invite you to awaken your senses and join us on a journey of discovery through this diverse wine and food destination.

2014 was one of the best Hunter vintages on record so look out Grange! Join one of our Saturday Masterclasses and get a unique insight into the making of these wines by one of the winemakers themselves. The wines will be presented to you in Riedel glassware as a 'blind' bracket, name the wines correctly and you will enter in the draw to win an Icon Pack valued at over $500.
