Wineries, Sydney: 15 reviews and 13 photos
Fancy a day at the wineries? Well, you'll obviously be in the majority. Reportedly over 2 million people each year trek to the vineyards of the Hunter Valley. Personally, I'm up there every fortnight as part of my job and, once upon a time, I was Hunter Valley Tourist Officer and I actually drew a map of the area to update what was then available. How out-of-date that map now is!
The colossal growth in the last 30 years has been spurred by Australia's multiculturalism and a burgeoning export trade. We outsell French wines in Britain, a fact I believe they're not too happy about.
If you want lots of info, then please, See my POKOLBIN pages.
This shot is of one of about 100 wineries, some with attached restaurants, some with accommodation that dot the area. It's all about 2 hours north of Sydney.
There's a multitude of tour companies to take you there, far too many to list individually here, but any of the tourist information centre will give you an array.
