We also learnt a lot about the type of wines the hunter valley is famous for, pairing wines with food, the importance of climate on the crop and... More

Pippa was fantastic tour guide. She's very friendly and well versed in the world of wines. We visited 5 vineyards, with a thoughtful mix of establishments. The explanation of the process of making different wines, presentation and pairing wine with various cheeses and chocolates, all made this a wonderful experience. When my husband and I reminisced about the events of... More

This is our second time In the hunter valley, now going forward I will always book with Pippa as her tours are well structured, having little breaks between winery's and sharing her wine knowledge. We went to 5 winery's on our day tour 😁

We pre booked a full day tour with Pippa before we left the UK. Communication was excellent and we were collected from our accommodation bang on time. We visited 5 boutique wineries, The Olive Centre and had a yummy lunch at the Small Wine Makers' Centre. Pippa was a fantastic guide, her knowledge and humour made the day very special.... More

My cousin and I did the Boutique Wine & Gourmet Food Trail Tour during the Labour Day Long Weekend. Our lovely tour guide Rob was able to pick us up from our accommodation in Greta which was approximately 15 minutes from the Hunter which was very nice. Rob was great and a winemaker by trade which made the day more... More

She caters to individual guests needs, and runs the tour to cater to her guests as apposed to a deadline. All the tastings that we visited were excellent! The staff were all passionate about...

Pippa was the tour guide and she is excellent! Six or seven (the details are a bit hazy now! haha) stops with education, snacks and of course wine! We left with a dozen or so bottles and felt like each winery was completely unique to the one before it. Pippa picked us up in Wollombi too! Thanks! Highly recommended!

Pippa and Helen were perfect hosts, they came and picked us up from Wollombi and drove us into the Hunter to meet the rest of the group. Our driver Rob was very insightful and knowledgeable about the area and the wineries. Stopped off at cheese, chocolate and tea shops along the way and had a cheeky sampling. We had a... More
