    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Stop 1). Arrive at a boutique run winery and cellar door where you will learn the art of cheese and wine matching, as you are guided through a selected range of local cheeses each matched with wines, along with additional wine tastings on offer from the extensive wine list. Stop 2). We then progress on to a winery restaurant for their signature “Chef’s Tasting Plate” which comprises of tasting portions of various dishes created with seasonal local produce all served on the one plate, with each dish paired with premium wines and then finishing at the cellar door for a guided wine tasting. Stop 3). Discover the adventurous and complex world of Whisky, Craft Beer or Wine and Food Pairing, tasting three distinct flavour profiles that have each been specifically matched to two savoury and one dessert taster sized dishes. Nb: your preference in the "Special Requirements" Field, otherwise Whisky will be selected. Stop 4). Time to end on a “sweet note” indulging in a selection of beautifully crafted local artisan chocolates that have each been paired with its very own premium wine! Enjoy further tastings from the extensive family owned and run cellar door wine list, that has been passionately crafting wines here in the Hunter for over 120 years! Stop 5). Great photo opportunities along the way at scenic vantage points and opportunity to purchase local cheeses and small goods from one of the gourmet cheese shops and providore, which you can store in the on-board cooler box. Complimentary transfers from your Hotel or Accommodation commence at approximately 10:15am from Lovedale, Pokolbin, Cessnock and Rothbury locations (only).

An enjoyable and thoughtful premium pairing experience
Jun 2021
The premium food & drink pairing tour was a great experience - the choice of locations was thoughtful (three wineries, one restaurant) as it took us through the spectrum of food you would expect to pair with wine (at least by our standards), including cheese, mains, finger food & chocolate. There also wasn't too much travel time between stops - not that it mattered because our guide Robyn was great! Would highly recommend for anyone wanting an introduction to food and wine pairing as well as those just looking for an enjoyable day out of premium food and wines.

Everyone at each location were more than happy to help with any requests and the food overall was very taste and filling. Stomp was a rushed visit due to their staff not Robyn our driver.

Thank you for your valued feedback. We do feel we may have let you down with the overall rating given on your experience and welcome further feedback as to how we could of made your experience better. We have taken onboard and passed your feedback on about feeling a little rushed at the 1st venue. This is never the intention with allocating around an hour to settle in and enjoy the cheese and wine pairing experience. Saturdays are of course the busiest day in the Valley and smaller family owned and operated venues can sometimes be a little rushed off their feet. We do like to take our guests to a varied range of venues and locations and are very particular with who we partner with ensuring our guests are well looked after and get the best possible experience. We do sincerely hope overall you enjoyed your day with us and based on the feedback from your Driver (and the pics shared) it seems as though it was a great group of people that all got along very well. Thanks again and look forward to any additional feedback you can provide by contacting Management at: explore@ihophuntervalley.com.au or 0455 535 035.

One of the tour with a difference
May 2021
We did the pairing tour. It was excellent. Rather than being on a bus and dropped off at a cellar door for a tasting, you have a highly interactive food/wine/whiskey experience at each stop. At Stomp the cheese and wine matching showed the passion and attention to detail of this winery. The food with our wine at Windan was superb. Whiskey and tapas at stop three, followed by chocolate and wine matching at Tulloch's.

This is a great tour.
