Hunter Valley Wine School

Net A$50.00 per person

Hunter Resort – Hunter Valley offers the total "Winery Experience". The on site winery is by far the largest, and most advanced in the Hunter Valley. 

The Wine Tasting Cellars are open everyday to try the fruits of their labour... not to be missed is the daily comprehensive vineyard tour to experience how wine is actually made... right from the grapevine to bottle!

The two-hour Hunter Valley Wine School promises an education of wine. Walk through the vineyard and learn how and why a grapevine grows.

Then it is a comprehensive winemaking tutorial with our Cellarmaster.

The structured wine tutorial covers:
Where and how is wine made? 
What is its history? 
What are the grape varieties? 
How are they different? 
Blending - Why, and what does one look for with the bouquet, taste, and colour?

Finally - you receive a personalised Wine Appreciation Certificate to take home with you. Plus lots more knowledge about Hunter Wines

All these questions, and more, will be answered leaving one with a newfound knowledge of winemaking.. And tasting!!
