Welcome to Australia’s oldest wine country.

Your private, air-conditioned vehicle will be waiting to whisk you away to explore the best of the Broke-Fordwich region, at the foot of the Brokenback Mountain Range.

An area of idyllic natural beauty, known for its’ richer, softer wines. This is the first taste of outstanding New South Wales’ viticulture over three decadent days.

We’ll visit an array of beautiful wineries in picturesque settings, including the ‘2021 Hunter Valley Winemaker of The Year’ award recipient, Andrew Margan’s, Margan Wines. A small-batch, winery recognised as 5 Star by James Halliday every year since 2009.

Indulge in a luscious, paddock-to-plate light lunch of local gourmet produce and enjoy the relaxed ambience of life on the road less travelled.

After a morning of gourmet decadence, we’ll take the scenic drive back to the heart of the Hunter to visit one of the smallest but finest family-owned estates in the Hunter Valley producing ultra-premium wines since 1986.

Tonight you are invited to an exclusive Wings Luxe private dining experience. You will embark on a culinary adventure of contemporary Italian cuisine, shared amongst new friends and matched with delectable Hunter Valley wines.
