Thank you so much for all your help and amazing service in helping us have the best hens weekend possible! So accomodating!

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the tour and would highly recommend wine party tours to everyone wanting a wine tour through the Hunter valley. 10 out of 10
We had such a blast with Wine Party Tours. We booked a private bus for our corporate event, and we had a wonderful time. They picked some great venues for us with a nice combination of distillery, winery and a brewery. Brendan was very accommodating and an absolute pleasure to deal with! We highly recommend them, and we will definitely be back 😊

Recently celebrated my 30th birthday in the Hunter Valley. We booked a brewery and wine tour with Wine Party Tours. I would highly recommend booking through this company. Brendan was fantastic to work with. He was very personable, he made the booking process seamless, made great recommendations for the day and I love that you can customise your own tour. The day was perfect from the driver on the day to the venues visited.

I went with Wine Party Tours for my friend’s Hens party. We were a queer group and Brendan was very understanding of the vibe of our party. I’d really love to give the biggest props to Graham for looking after us the day. The group kept remarking he was like the group dad, keeping us on time, taking some really good candid photos throughout the day. He was also very flexible with the itinerary, when our bride wanted to get cheese at the end of the day, he was only to happy to take us to the Smelly Cheese shop instead of Hunter Valley Chocolates, but also because we were a little early finishing our last winery stop, we ended up having enough time to hit both anyway. Overall, would definitely recommend the tours, and especially would recommend Graham.

We had an absolutely great time on our tour! We loved all the wineries selected for us, and even found some new favourites. Special shout out to our driver Graeme who was absolutely brilliant. He was so friendly and patient with our group, and did everything he could to make sure we had the best possible experience. Brendan was extremely accommodation, for example when we wanted to add one extra person at the last minute. Will be recommending to anyone I know looking for a tour in the Hunter in the future!

The Rise of Craft Beer

Craft beer has been on the rise in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. With a focus on quality ingredients, unique flavors, and small-batch brewing, craft beer has captured the attention of beer lovers around the world. The trend has taken hold in the Hunter Valley, where a number of small breweries have popped up in recent years.

Craft beer is all about experimentation, and as a result, there’s a lot of room for creativity when it comes to flavors and styles. From hoppy IPAs to rich stouts, there’s a craft beer for every palate. With so many options to choose from, it’s no wonder that more and more people are turning to craft beer as their drink of choice.

History of Brewing in The Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley has a long history of brewing, dating back to the early 19th century. The region’s fertile soil and ideal climate made it the perfect location for growing hops and barley, and many early settlers began brewing their own beer.

Over the years, the brewing industry in Hunter Valley has gone through many changes. Large commercial breweries dominated the market for many years, but in recent times, the focus has shifted to smaller, craft breweries. These local breweries use locally sourced ingredients and traditional brewing methods to create unique and flavorful beers that are truly one-of-a-kind.

What to Expect on Hunter Valley Brewery Tours

A brewery tour is a great way to get an inside look at the brewing process and learn about the history of beer. Typically, the tour will take you through the brewery, starting with the ingredients and ending with the finished product.

You’ll get to see how the beer is brewed, learn about the different equipment used in the process, and even have the chance to sample some of the brews. Along the way, you’ll be guided by experts who can answer any questions you may have about the brewing process.
