Hunter Valley Tourism & Travel
Hunter Valley Australia
Vast vineyards hidden among bushland and forested ridges, paddocks with grazing cattle, superb wines, gourmet food, delightful restaurants and cafes and rustic cottages make up the Hunter Valley region. The Hunter Valley is Australias oldest commercial wine producing area with wine having first been made there in the 1830s.
Hunter Valley Wines
The Hunter Valley wine region produces spicy, peppery shiraz, red and dry semillon but whites are the specialty of Hunter Valley wineries. Many wineries in the region are internationally known as producing high quality vintages. February is vintage time, which is a great time to see a vineyard in full swing. For something different, explore the wineries by horse-drawn carriage, hot air balloon or bicycle.
