Hunter Valley Wine & Food Festival brings travellers to the region

Throughout May and June, accommodation and tourism in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales comes alive thanks to the Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival.

There’s no better time to take in the delights of Australia’s premium wine-growing region than through the Festival which showcases the epicurean pleasures of the iconic food and wine destination. It also offers the perfect journey of discovery through the stunning region and a plethora of accommodation opportunities, which hoteliers bask in.

From incredible gourmet dinners at award-winning restaurants to vineyard tours, winemaking masterclasses, hands-on cooking classes and cosy evenings beside an open fire with friends, the Festival has something for everyone.

Experience the welcoming hospitality of the Hunter Valley at some of the ever-popular signature events, like the Whispering Brook Olive Long Table Luncheon, the Glandore Burning of the Barrel evening, the Cheese Lovers Festival, the Lovedale Long Lunch and the Meet the Farmer Dinner.

There’s also a host of vertical tastings, vineyard tours and set-price lunches and dinners on offer during the Festival.  Visitors can enjoy a range of cooking experiences from the Garden To Plate Cooking School at Margan Estate, the Semillon, Shiraz and Cheese Matching Experience at De Iullis Wines to the By The Fireside Winemakers Series at Hunter Valley Resort.

Just a two-hour drive north of Sydney, the Hunter Valley is home to more than 150 wineries and is bursting with all the delights of its highly-acclaimed food and wine culture. With accommodation and experience packages for every budget, the Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival is the perfect opportunity for a sumptuous winter getaway.
