About Us

Two Fat Blokes have lived in the Hunter Valley for a combined 40 years spending most of their working lives in the wine tourism industry.

We bet you came here to figure out how Two Fat Blokes got their name?

Well, we are what it says on the tin…

Two Fat Blokes who love their food, love their wine, and want to share that passion with as many people as possible.

Fat Bloke #1 is now retired and enjoys more lunches than any one man should, but he’s earned it! You might see him parked at many of the Hunter’s awesome restaurants – look out for his number plate, it’s LUNCH.

Fat Bloke #2 is still operating the business with his family. His passion for food and wine has only increased with age. He still runs the odd tour but prefers to sit back with a wine in hand and take in the stunning Hunter Valley scenery.

Two Fat Blokes is a family-run business and we’re growing every day. Our team is passionate, engaged and love having a good laugh together. We’re all from different walks of life, but the one thing that we have in common is that we all love the Hunter Valley.

The Hunter Valley offers so much and on our gourmet Hunter Valley wine tours will introduce you to the true characters, hidden boutique wineries & restaurants and some truly outstanding food & wine. Our tour guides all have extensive food & wine knowledge and know our region very well.

All of us look for different experiences, but the guests that have enjoyed one of our wine tours already, all have a few things in common, they love great food, great wine, and they’re looking for a wine tour which is better than the rest!

With this in mind, we have created a number of different gourmet Hunter Valley wine tours to suit different people. All our tours offer at least one component unique to Two Fat Blokes Gourmet Tours – an experience you will not find with any other tour company or if you were to explore our region on your own.

We invite you to find the tour that best suits you and join us, you will have a great day out, have a unique and personalised experience and probably have made some new friends by the end of the day.

Group Information

What is the minimum number of people you will pick up?

There is no minimum restriction to book so singles and couples can book tours, but there is a minimum number of people needed to run tours effectively. We do our best to make sure every tour runs, which sometimes means shuffling minimum numbers together so tours can operate. We need to group together at least 2 to 4 people (minimum number shown on each tour) for it to operate.

Do you take parties like a 40th or 50th?

Yes. A day tour with your friends enjoying drinks and tasty food is one of the most enjoyable but hassle free ways to celebrate a birthday. We take care of the details and let us know if you would like something extra special too!

What size groups can you cater too?

Each tour vehicle contains passengers from multiple bookings until it is filled to the 'maximum guest limit' (shown on each tour). This limit keeps our group small so it's fast and fun with premium access. A tour will operate when a minimum of two seats are booked. If there are only two seats booked, great you will have the tour all to yourselves in one of our smaller vehicles. The more a tour fills up, the bigger the vehicle we use until our maximum guest limit for that tour is reached. If you would like a completely private tour for two, or, have a larger group than the 'maximum guest limit' please contact us for options. We can cater to larger groups by combining multiple vehicles for any tour.
