This brand new experience takes just over half an hour in our dedicated theatre, running several times every day.
Up on the big screen - learn a little of the Hunter's wine heritage, Australia's oldest wine area.
See the grapes being harvested, and being crushed at the on site winery.
After the 15 minute show - up come the lights and it's down to the serious business of wine tasting. In front of each visitor is a bracket of the Hunter's best wines.
The Cellarmaster takes visitors through the "Structure" of wine. Why is colour important?
Smell the many bouquets of a wine, and of course what should one look for in the taste of wine?
The winemaking lesson continues watching how the wine press actually works, the Winemaker adding the yeast, seeing the juice start to ferment into alcohol, learn the art of wine blending, and finally the wine being bottled.
Open every day at 11am and 2pm. Individual bookings not required - however numbers limited for each show.
And the whole experience is just $30pp. The Hunter Wine Theatre is a true sensory overload
