The Burning of the Barrel is just about the best night you can have in the Hunter Valley. Think wine, cheese, food, music, fireworks, families, starry nights and a bloody massive fire all nestled at the base of the Brokenback Mountain range on the Glandore Estate property. And yes, we do burn a barrel. What started quite humbly has grown into a Signature Event for the Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival and is a talked about event for the whole year before and after. If you haven't made it, this is a must do event in the cold months of winter and if you have been before, we would love to have you back. Bookings essential.
