Full description
The Hunter Valley is Australia's oldest producing wine region. The first vines were planted in the 1820s. Today there are over 150 wineries producing a wide range of exceptional wines reflective of their origin. One of the founding families of Hunter Valley wines, the Tulloch family story began in 1895 when John Younie (J.Y.) Tulloch accepted an unusual settlement for a debt – a 43 acre property in nearby Pokolbin. Tulloch took an immediate liking to the property and the five acres of neglected Shiraz vines it contained and undertook his first foray into viticulture and winemaking. Immerse yourself in the history of Tulloch Wines in Australia's oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley. In this tasting 6 Tulloch Wines have been chosen to perfectly represent the 'Hunter Heroes', the best know grape varieties of the Hunter being Semillon, Shiraz, Chardonnay & Verdelho. Included in this tasting is a wine from our museum cellar giving you an opportunity to taste and compare an aged Hunter wine alongside current release wines. This is the perfect wine experience for those who like a slice of history with their wine tasting!

We had a wine tasting hosted by Maddy and she was incredible, so knowledgeable and gave us an amazing experience and a warm welcome coming to the hunter valley for the first time! Definitely would recommend this to anyone!

We were lucky! Christian emigrated from Germany 20 years ago and gave us a nice impression of the Tullock wine in German!

There is no real teaching session, however there were guiding instructions on a paper on the different wines, and the staff drops by once a while to check on us and chat.
