No visit to the Hunter is complete without savoring the creamy cheeses the Hunter is known for at The Smelly Cheese Shop and indulging in some wicked delights at the Hunter Valley Chocolate Shop.
In addition to being known for its wines the Hunter Valley also produces some amazing and refreshing craft beers. Cleanse your palate with a selection of up to 12 locally made beers with funky names such as Dogbolter black ale, Fat Yak, Redback, Ruby Tuesday and Dirty Granny Cider just to name a few.
An Italian inspired menu including pastas, salads, gourmet pizzas with generous toppings (vegetarian and gluten-free options may be available), and gourmet burgers for lunch are the perfect complement to a delicious day of wine and beer tasting.
