Hitting up the fine wine trail through Australia’s Hunter Valley

There’s a place very close to my heart a mere two hours from Sydney. Not only does my sister live there, but it’s also a land of wine and honey. A place where some of Australia’s best boutique vineyards flaunt there bottled temptations and quickly twist your arm in to stopping longer. It’s known as the Hunter Valley.

And the really decadent thing is that you can drive from one vineyard to the next sampling all the local specialties – from the lightest semillon, to a raisin rich muscat – free. There is no pressure to buy, and you can learn all about Aussie vino from wine experts who are very happy to tell you. After a leisurely tasting they’ll wave you off with a red wine glow and point you in the direction of some amazing food choices. Paradise? Yes!

Luckily for Andres and I my sister isn’t fond of a tipple, so she offered to drive us and her husband around for the day. Alternatively there’s a hire a driver option if you’re so inclined, or you can rent bicycles and get pedaling – but the distances are huge and the wine quickly effective!

Wherever you end up in the Hunter Valley you really can’t go wrong. Especially with amazing restaurants to splurge at like Roberts and deluxe accommodation options like Peppers.  But if you’re on a tight budget it’s worth hiring a camper van, picking a designated driver and seeing where the wine trail blows you. After all, life’s too short to drink bad wine.
