About

Our Hunter Gatherer’s tour is the most popular full day Hunter Valley wine tour in wine country. Join this tour and we take you for a private tasting to 4 or 5 of the Hunter Valley’s great wineries (small, boutique and big) to sample some delicious wines, we also highlight some of the produce made in our region.

We all know the Hunter is famous for its wines, but we also have a proud & thriving cottage industry that produces all sorts of other ingredients our local chefs love to use in their dishes. Olives & Olive oils, cheeses, organic poultry, snails, berries, herbs, jams & pickles & of course chocolates and much more are all produced right here in the Hunter Valley.

A typical itinerary for our day tour would include:

  • A visit to 4 or 5 wineries. Including a vineyard walk (weather permitting).
  • One of the great Hunter Valley wineries we visit is De Iuliis winery where we will conduct our famous cheese & wine experience ($25pp included value). We match 9 different cheeses with 9 different wines and each booking will receive a complimentary copy of our cheese & wine matching guide to take with them as a memento of your visit.
  • A generous lunch at a table set up amongst the vines, (weather permitting), including one glass of wine per person. The summer menu consists of a antipasto platter made up with locally produced cheeses, small goods, organic chicken, smoked trout, pickles, breads and olives. The winter menu starting July includes hearty winter soups (pea & ham, tomato & meatball, minestrone, and pumpkin) with sourdough bread and butter. ($30pp included value).
  • A brewery tour of the Hunter Valley’s own Hunter Beer Co. ($10pp included value)
  • A chocolate & wine matching experience ($15pp included value).
  • Our guides know the best locations to find you some kangaroos in the wild.

Highest Reviewed Tour Company in NSW

Best First Taste of the Hunter

A well organised and informative tour. We had only 6 visitors and BJ was a knowledgeable and interesting guide. The wineries we visited had staff who were well able to explain the region and the wines. The food pairing was well done and a great opportunity for folks from a non-wine region to expand our knowledge and palate.

Better than all the rest…

Highly recommend this company, and in particular BJ our guide, for an amazing day in the Hunter! I’ve been on wine tours in the hunter valley several times but none have compared to this one. The tour was a laugh a minute and really well organised. The wineries we were brought to were fantastic (and generous with their pours)! Cannot recommend them highly enough! Thanks for a great day BJ! 🙂

Excellent, informative and fun wine tour

I would recommend this tour to everyone. Mum and I chose the half day tour which took us to 3 beautiful winery’s including cheese tasting, we enjoyed every second of it and had just the right amount of time at each place. Would definitely take another tour with them the next time I visit Hunter Valley!

Great fun day!

BJ is the bomb! He’s so knowledgeable, friendly and funny. You’re sure to have a great day with this tour company, they take you to some great vineyards that are away from the big crowds. You’ll finish the day having sampled a huge selection of Hunter wines, cheeses, chocolates and beers. The bus is super comfy and spacious.

Wine, cheese, chocolate and beer in stunning countryside

The Hunter Gatherer Tour. 5 wineries, all of them sell only to their club members or at their cellar door so their wines are not available anywhere else and all of which made some really amazing wines. The absolute stand out was the first of the day, a semillon at Mistletoe, but every one of the others had something special to offer. Mark, the driver and guide, is a winemaker himself and was a fund of really interesting stuff about wine, the Hunter Valley and everything that goes with that combination. Lunch was provided in a winery from which the views were absolutely breathtaking. At the wine and cheese pairing, Mark arranged for my son, who does not eat cheese, to have a platter of antipasta instead; he really took great trouble to make us all feel welcome. Pairing chocolate with wine is not to everyone’s taste, but individually the wines and the chocolates were excellent. And finally, the Potter Brewery and some really good and unusual beers. This is a superb way to get a taste of the Hunter Valley.

Honeymoon tour

We had such a great time today with BJ. Had a friendly group with us on the full day tour. BJ is definitely a great ambassador for your program. Had a few different tours, but Two Fat Blokes is our favourite. Will be back next year for our first anniversary!
