About

Explore the flavours of the beautiful Hunter Region as we sample a range of locally made wines, cheeses, spirits, and premium cider on a Half-Day adventure. Your guides will take you under their knowledgeable wings and introduce you the best that the Hunter has to offer.

If you want to experience the best of the Hunter Valley, this half-day tour is ideal. You’ll visit three boutique venues, where you’ll sample a selection of fine produce.  At Two Fat Blokes, you’ll take a cheese and wine masterclass, where you’ll learn to match nine cheeses with nine wines. Armed with this knowledge, happy hour at your house will never be the same again.

Meet your local expert Driver/Guide with complimentary return transfers from your local (Pokolbin, Cessnock, Nulkaba and Rothbury) accommodation beginning at about 9:30am for the morning tour, or 1:30pm for the afternoon tour.  Contact us if staying outside these locations and we can recommend a central meeting point to join the tour.

We will visit a local distillery for a guided tasting of their signature range of locally made premium spirits (sample; gins, flavoured vodkas, schnapps and liqueurs).

We will visit our boutique cellar door where you will be guided through a selected range of Hunter valley premium wines, expertly matched with delicious cheese to compliment your tasting experience.

At our final stop of the day you will be guided through the tasting sensation of a paddle of local ciders or beers at a nearby Hunter Valley craft house.

Return to your accommodation or be dropped out to continue your afternoon/evening in Pokolbin.  Please specify when booking if you require an alternate transfer to your pick-up location.

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  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 four seats are booked. If there are only four 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.
