We have created an educational, personalised tour, with a light-hearted approach. Experience one of the best wine tours in Australia with our Food & Wine Lovers’ full day tour!

You will be picked up from your Hunter Valley accommodation in our luxury van and start your day with a private tasting of sparkling whites & reds, accompanied by brunch at Peterson Champagne House.

We then go for a scenic drive to one of the Hunter Valleys premium boutique wineries for a look behind the scenes, through the winery, bottling line and the barrel room, where you will be given a taste of premium wine (enclosed footwear required).

Next, it’s time to expand your taste, as you are guided through a vertical tasting with new and old vintages of red and white wines.

Then it’s time for an outstanding lunch at our own restaurant/delicatessen. You will have a choice of a light luncheon option which consists of a choice of our famous Red wine, White wine or Beer and food tasting plates or a main course including a glass of wine or beer.

Because we specialise in very small groups we can tailor any food and wine tours to your wishes, which may include some scenic trips to the top of the hill, showing you some of the oldest grape vines in the world, finding that elusive bottle of wine, visiting a winery you really want to go to or finding you some kangaroos to photograph. We always find our roo!

Food and Wine Lovers Tour

My wife and I went on the Two Fat Blokes Food and Wine Lovers Tour for our wedding anniversary. Mark looked after our group and he was awesome! Not only was he extremely helpful and courteous, he make us feel very welcome and comfortable throughout the entire day. He obviously knew what he was talking about providing an excellent education about wines and their making, as well as the places we were visiting and the local area. The number, varieties and quality of the wines was extraordinary, while lunch and the cheese tasting at the Two Fat Blokes Café was second to none! I would highly recommend this tour to anybody and suggest you ask for Mark to look after you.

Food & Wine Lovers Tour

My partner and I went to the Hunter Valley mid-week and had the Food & Wine Lovers tour all to ourselves! We had an amazing full-day tour with our driver, Mark, whose extensive knowledge of wine and easygoing nature made our experience all the more enjoyable! We asked him to sit with us at the table seeing as it was just the pair of us on the tour, he happily obliged and we had some great conversations throughout the day. The cellar doors and restaurants we went to were all exceptional – we thoroughly enjoyed each course and the wine pairings were all fantastic. The two dishes we had at the Two Fat Blokes Gourmet Kitchen were definitely a favourite! We picked up a lot of great wines along the way, the standout for us being Bimbadgen Estate with a lot of great white wines. We had such a great day overall – it’s definitely worth doing the Food & Wine Lovers tour!

Amazing full day tour!

I booked the full day lovers tour for my fiancé and I during his birthday weekend. Even though it was a rainy day, Phil, our guide made everything as fun as possible still! He impressed us with his amazing wine knowledge and made sure we were not getting drenched during the tour. We had such an amazing VIP experience tasting wine, mixing our own wine and bringing it home, wine and cheese tasting and even drinking wine out of the barrel. Phil also surprised John with a nice birthday surprise which was such a thoughtful gesture! He definitely went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and we enjoyed every second of the tour. Would definitely recommend this tour for couples! 🙂

Barrel of laughs and wine a perfect blend

Barrels of wine was to be expected. Barrels of laughs on the all-day tour was not. But the warm hospitality flowed just as freely as the wine that filled our glasses with Two Fat Blokes tour guide Julie, entertaining my partner and I with her wit, humour and knowledge of the Hunter Valley region. Visiting five of the Valley’s finest winemakers, we were able to gain an appreciation for the skilful and delicate process involved in transforming a dull grape into a fine drop and were even able to try our hand at wine blending – a process that involved the culumation of three whites. Upon my request, Julie – affectionately known as Jules – even stopped by the Hunter Valley Chocolate Factory, perched proudly on the hilltop. It’s a must do for chocoholics! Lunch at the Two Fat Blokes Restaurant was yum in the tum, as was the cheese and wine matching and sampling that followed. Thank you Two Fat Blokes for an amazing tour. You delivered so much more than expected and to that, I’m raising my glass! Tara Cooper.

Great fun but don’t eat breakfast beforehand

We had the full ‘Gourmet’ tour which was 7+ hours of eating and wine tasting/drinking. Thoroughly good fun with genial host Julie. You get several tastings all of which involve tasting six or more wines, you get to blend your own bottle of wine, and you get breakfast, lunch and a cheese tasting. We didn’t need dinner!

Food and Wine Lovers Tour – Awesome day in the Hunter Valley

We have been to the Hunter Valley many times and have done several different wine tours but this tour was by far the best.
Our day kicked off with some sparkling wine and pancakes….. yum!
Followed by the “make your own wine” experience which is exclusive to Two Fat Blokes and the winery – this was one of our favourite parts of the day and we got to take the wine home with us which was professional bottled with personalised labels. We went to several other wineries for tasting one inc going into the barrel room and tasting wine from the barrels and lunch was at Two Fat Blokes Gourmet Kitchen where the staff were all so attentive and lunch was delicious. While there we also did a cheese and wine pairing tasting which we really enjoyed.
Our tour guide Jules was really knowledgeable and friendly and flexible with where we went. Thanks Jules for making our day so enjoyable!
All the staff at the wineries seem to have great relationship with Jules / Two Fat Blokes, we definitely felt like we received “special” treatment everywhere we went.
I highly recommend this tour for the unique experiences they offer.

15 Years Wedding Anniversary

My husband Peter and I would like to give a massive thank you to our tour guide Julie who spent the day with us today and helped make our 15 year Wedding Anniversary a day to remember. Two Fat Blokes Gourmet Tour was absolutely amazing, we had such a great day filled with so many laughs, great food and fantastic wines. We visited Peterson House as well as Saddlers Creek Wines, both had exceptional wines and also excellent service.
We had lunch at Two Fat Blokes Gourmet Restaurant and after lunch had 9 different cheese and wine tasting platter, it was food overload but it was amazing!!!!! We will definitely be back, I have already pre-booked Julie for my 40th birthday in 3 years!

Full day tour – Perfect for first timers

We had a fantastic experience with our Two Fat Blokes tour guide, Bryan! The tour is great for first timers as you get to see a little bit of everything. Personally, the cheese & wine pairing was our favourite. Would highly recommend it to anyone! Went home with lots of cheese, wine and new jokes from Bryan!

Made our 1 year anniversary special

As a travel manager from Flight Centre Victoria Point, in the industry for 6 years, I have always wanted to travel to the Hunter Valley. Knowing very well we only had 48hrs in the Hunter, I wanted to make sure that for my wife and my 1st year anniversary we encapsulated everything the Hunter has to offer.
Two fat blokes came to my attention on various occasions and knew it was something that Flight Centre sells.
So we booked it, forecast was terrible, rain, winds, cold temps – you name it, the Hunter was scheduled for it.
No doubt we woke up, had our Breakfast, grabbed the Brolley. Right on time, Bryan from TFBGT arrives right on 9.45 right out the front of our room.
Instantly felt welcomed along with our wine, cheese, chocolate and beer tasting compatriots who were already in the bus.
Bryan was never rushed and constantly told us history and jokes about the valley in a constructive and well delivered manner.
Throughout the day we visited 6 venues, from wine tastings, to lunch, to cheese and wine pairing (delivered and explained by Bryan 10/10), chocolate tasting and the blokes at Hunter Valley brewing Co for some Beer.
I rate this tour as one of the best, rain, hail or shine. Local, interstate or international – this tour is for you.
Thank you Two Fat Blokes for making our 1 year wedding anniversary something we will remember.
Thank you to Bryan for calling our hotel in advance to light the fire for our arrival on this cold winters day.
This is something special we will remember forever!!
See you for our 2nd, 3rd, 4th +++++++ wedding anniversaries.
A+ rating – especially to Bryan and the team
