Expanding your wine palate takes more than just buying a new bottle now and then. To truly immerse yourself in a genuine experience, we recommend attending a wine tasting in the best wineries in Hunter Valley.

Whether you are a long-time wine expert or a beginner, choosing the best Hunter Valley wineries is paramount for your tastings. While there is no bad winery, you should be able to find the place where you want to enjoy the experience.

To help you understand which winery to have your tastings, follow our guide below:

The Types of Wine

Different wineries offer various wine selections for their guests, hence why your preferred wine type will influence your chosen destination.

If you have curated your list of favourite wines based on your past knowledge, you might want to try exploring new flavours to expand your taste. Perhaps you can try antique notes from finely aged wines or some whites or roses if you are used to drinking reds.

For beginners, don’t hesitate to go for variety. With an inexperienced palate, exposing yourself to distinct tastes, aromas, and textures is essential to develop your preferences.

More Than Just a Drink

Though wine tasting is your primary objective for visiting wineries, your experience won’t be complete without other interests.

Before you book a wine tour to any winery, check if they offer additional activities and services such as complimentary cheese platters, authentic local cuisines, vineyard excursions, picnics, winemaking tours, and many more.

A trip to the winery should be a memorable cultural experience that will enrich your appreciation for wines and their history. A good winery would also feature a long history of its establishment and the story behind its beverages.

The Ideal Atmosphere

The atmosphere also plays a heavy role in determining whether you’d want to attend a wine tasting in a certain winery.

Depending on the region, the winery may have a stunning background composed of the vineyard and mountains or what remains of the original homestead built when the winery began. Others may offer private tastings, while some may have group sessions where you can invite your friends.

But why not have the benefit of both?

Surrounded by age-old mystic vineyards and mountains, Ivanhoe Wines’ Cellar Door opens you to a beautiful tour of the Ivanhoe Homestead replica that matches the elegance of their divine wines. Book a Personal Tasting today for a splendid experience.
