I would not hestitate to recommend this tour, we booked for a Thursday and there was 6 of us. Our driver Bill was a wealth of knowledge and we learnt so much from him during the day. We visted one of their new partners, the Wine Lab at the end of the day and thought this visit could have been put in a bit earlier, Nathan was very informative and showed us his operation, he also has beers to sample. Lunch was a selection of gourmet meats, cheeses, bread, biscuits, fruit, banana bread etc all in a box to share between two with a complementry glass of wine. Overall a fantastic day.

2 fat blokes were awesome . If you get a chance to choose guides you should choose Bill. His knowledge of the area and his quirky anecdotes made our day. They will take you to the path less travelled and show you a great variety of vineyards. My wife and I Are in our 40s and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. I am not a wine drinker but are now converted . Thanks Bill and the team.

We had a fabulous experience in the Hunter Valley with the Uncork the Hunter Full Day tour. We received a warm greeting upon arrival and were provided with thoughtful and informative facts on the wines and pairings. The lunch was tasty also! We would definitely return and recommend this to others!

Really enjoyed the day. Only 10 people on the tour. All the winery staff were friendly and informative. Our tour guide Jules, was great, she deserves a raise.

Great fun and extremely informative tour - our tour guide Julz was amazing - we will definitely be back to try another tour with her hopefully as our guide
