Ah, wine country. The Hunter Valley’s fertile fields have given birth to more than 150 wineries that roll across the green hills of this popular region, just three hours' drive from Sydney. Proud growers, wine makers and vintners have been squeezing the good stuff out of grapes for close to 180 years, and it has earned the Hunter solid street cred on both Australian and international vinous scenes.
But despite the much deserved nickname, wine country offers more than just bottled grown-up grape juice and the fabulous mouldy mates from the Hunter Valley Smelly Cheese Shop. The region is home to exciting music festivals and community fairs, as well as innovative chefs that’ll pair your preferred variety of Hunter wine with exquisite meals, and even show you how to prepare a Hunter-style feast at home. And when you come and stay for a cheeky long weekend, the incredibly luxurious accommodation options will blow every other glamping experience or couples’ retreat out of the water.
