Chef-Led Hunter Valley Gourmet Food and Wine Day Trip from Sydney

This full-day Hunter Valley food and wine tour, led by a professional chef, is perfect for Sydney visitors wanting to get a true taste of the region’s world-renowned food scene. Discover what’s new in culinary culture while leaving the logistics to the professionals. See the Sydney Fish Market, try local specialties like kangaroo, roll your own sushi, and taste a variety of wines in the Hunter Valley.

What to Expect

Start with pickup at your Sydney hotel, and then fuel up for the day with coffee on your way to see the early-morning seafood trading at the famous Sydney Fish Market. 

After a freshly cooked breakfast overlooking the Hawkesbury River, continue on your journey to the Hunter Valley, where you stop in Wollombi for the first wine tasting of the day. Learn to roll your own sushi and pair it with local wines. 

Continue the scenic journey and arrive at another boutique winery, where you sample local varietals accompanied by dishes personally prepared by your chef-guide. 

Visit a specialty store for olive oils and other locally made treats to bring home (time permitting). Finally, stop at a third winery to sip shiraz, sample Aussie specialties such as barramundi and kangaroo, and enjoy desserts accompanied by a selection of dessert wines.

Your tour ends back at your Sydney hotel.

Hi Christine, I’m sure if you email Jimmy he will accommodate. We arrived back around that time, which was very delayed, due to a bad accident on the freeway.
