We had the best Hunter Valley wine tour experience. First pick up from New Castle. We were supposed to be with other participants but they could not make it due to covid. And ending up having a private tour of our own for 4 people. The tour guide Dave (Greg) was very knowledgeable and very funny. We were lucky to have him. He is a top bloke. He also does beers tours !! might do that as well. Overall we enjoyed the whole day with wines chocolate and the distillery and beautiful lunch. I’d give it a Five star ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
