We have arrived in the Hunter Valley and are pleased to see that the vines are shooting – giving that lush green feel to the valley.
Living in Margaret River we are spoiled for quality wines and some pretty impressive cellar doors but have found the Hunter to be just as good.
Many of the cellar door buildings are substantial whilst some are more modest. Here is a sample of just some of the many wineries in the area.
The vines and gardens look beautiful with the mountainous backdrop.
Roses are flowering in the area and these two had a wonderful bouquet as we walked past.
The small historical town of Wollombi has retained its old world charm and heritage. The wooden and sandstone buildings have been well maintained making it a popular tourist attraction (we visited early in the morning – that is why you can’t see any tourists).
Our friend from Italy, Debra, has a wall that looks very similar to this one at their Vergemoli property.
We are spending a couple of days in the area so will let you know how the wines taste soon.
