Over 40 Years in the Hunter Valley

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 hospitality/tourism industry.

We know the Hunter Valley well – my wife’s ancestors arrived in the Hunter Valley in 1853, planted some of the very first vines in the country and members of our family still make wine here today. They just never left the region and why would you?

With an amazing 140 different wine outlets, over 50 outstanding restaurants the task to choose the right ones to visit can be a daunting one. We are also blessed with stunning natural beauty and an abundance of wildlife and that famous lay-back ‘Hunter Lifestyle’.

In fact, one of the world’s most respected wine magazines; Wine Enthusiast, has named the Hunter Valley as one of the top ten wine travel destinations in the world for 2013. The Hunter Valley is the only Australian wine region to make the list.

“Two Fat Blokes loves good food, great wines and the joy of sharing it with others.”

Some people may get the impression that the Hunter is all about long, lazy lunches, a crisp glass of Semillon at 4 o’clock on the verandah followed by a delicious Hunter Shiraz in the evenings – well, there is a bit of that but we would like to tell you that we have thought long and hard about how we can best showcase our region and the experiences it offers, and we think we have come up with a number of different ways to let you enjoy our wines and food as well.

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 one thing in common, they love great food and great wine and look for lots of fun whilst exploring the Hunter Valley.

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 accord.

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.
