My 1st wine tasting experience at Hunter Valley, 2 hrs drive from Sydney. Much of Australian wines we see in sgp have cellar doors in Hunter Valley. Such as Lindemans & Rosemount and Wyndham Estate.
We visited 4 Cellar Doors for tasting: (in order) Tyrrell’s, Tempus Two, Lindemans & Rosemount and final stop at Tulloch.
Had lunch at the Oishii Japanese & Thai Restaurant housed in the same structure at Tempus Two before heading to their Cellar Door. They have the nicest Cellar Door decor inside, complemented with the dim lighting adding to the ambience. The shop is fitted with chandeliers, enhancing the grandeur of the place.
When we visited Hunter Valley, its Jun-Aug period whereby they do vine pruning as the vine had lose their leaves and entered dormancy by Jun.
We ended the day with a total haul of 3 bottles of Red Wines (as I’m not a white wine person), one each of the Cellar Doors except Tyrrell’s. =)
