Start Tour:

Your afternoon Vintage Connections experience begins from the moment you get into the climate controlled vehicle, and continues as we chat and get to know you a little, in order to help us to design your perfect afternoon. Our first wine tasting is generally booked in at 2pm.


We are flexible. Whether you are heading out to the glorious Hunter Valley straight from your accommodation or you are having an incredible meal at one of the many superb Hunter restaurants, you will be picked up for your indulgent afternoon in a modern luxury Mercedes in enough time to get you to your first experience at 1pm.

1st Winery:

When we arrive to be warmly welcomed at the first winery you will engage in a personal wine discovery experience. All Vintage Connection tours are about knowledge and the joy of good wine. To get to our selected cellar door we will travel through the beautiful hunter taking in the sights and sounds of this amazing wine region via the most picturesque roads possible. During the drive we will talk about the winery that we are heading to and touch on some history and specific information that sets the Hunter Valley wine region apart from any other wine region in Australia.

2nd Winery:

At the second winery we continue your personal wine discovery experience. The winery may have been hand selected by you or booked by Vintage connections whilst you were at the first winery.

You have now sampled up to ten wines, starting from the ‘lightest’ to ‘heaviest’ of whites and then the ‘lightest’ to ‘heaviest’ of reds, perhaps rounding the tasting session off with an amazing fortified white port or a muscat.

Have a drink of water, take a breath and indulge again, noticing the distinctive stamp your 2nd winery has put on their wines.

3rd Winery

Again, the 3rd winery may have been chosen by you or booked by Vintage Connections while you were enjoying the previous winery. We have explored contrasting and complimentary wines and various wine styles as your personal wine discovery experience continues to surprise and impress you.


You are now feeling fantastic and are brimming with lasting memories and fabulous flavours. You may have purchased some wine and craft industry produce or world class cheese to store in the our cold storage compartment in the vehicle that needs to be returned to your accommodation..

Perhaps this needs to be returned to your accommodation, Or you may now wish to return to your accommodation.

There are plenty of beautiful restaurants and some wonderful craft breweries in the area. Perhaps you would prefer to be dropped to a place where your experience with Vintage Connections can continue seamlessly into the rest of your day.

End Tour:

Most of the Cellar doors in the Hunter close at 5pm. We will be finishing off your last wine tasting at around 5-5.30pm. Once you and your belongings and purchases are safely delivered your day with Vintage Connections may come to an end, as your luxury transport drives away to the backdrop of a breathtaking Hunter Valley sunset.

“We had a fantastic time visiting a few cellar doors in the Hunter Valley with Vintage Connections. Our group was amazed by the knowledge of our guide as we did not think that wine was so intricate.”

Daphne Rose Bay

“This was the best afternoon tour for us, as we did not want to drive to a restaurant after consuming alcohol. Bryan was the perfect host and introduced us to some cellar doors that we would never have thought of ourselves. We enjoyed the journey to find that perfect wine just for us”
