We are excited about bringing you the 5th annual running of the event which is planned to be bigger and better than ever before. Further information is still to come, however in the meantime check out details of the 2016 event below:  

Australia’s favourite wine region, the Hunter Valley, is once again home to the Hunter Valley Wine Festival. Returning for its fourth consecutive year on Saturday the 4th June 2016, the Hunter Valley Wine Festival will also feature as a part of the two month long Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival.

The picturesque vineyards and rugged mountain ranges that surround Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley provide a stunning backdrop for the Festival, where you can wine and dine with the region’s best winemakers, brewers and culinary talent. With plenty of family-friendly activities and great entertainment on offer, this much loved Schwartz Family Company community event has something for everyone.

Entry tickets can be pre-purchased for $20 per person or for $25 per person on the day and include five tasting vouchers valid across 40 different exhibitors. Entry to the Festival is complimentary for children under 18 years old. All funds raised during the Festival will benefit the local Rural Fire Service.
