Hope Estate – Hunter Valley Wine Tours



Sip and swirl in one of Australia’s most beautiful regions with the Hunter Valley Wine Tour. With its lush rolling fields of gold and green, sprawling vineyards and open cellar doors, the Hunter Valley is the perfect place to while away the day.
On the Hunter Valley Wine Tour you can inspire all your senses in the majesty of Hope Estate. Nestled against a backdrop of woven countryside colours you can sip a cool glass of chardonnay, indulge in fine dining and gaze across the breath-taking vistas of tangled vine and deep cut valleys.
World Class Wines
With fertile red soil, cool breezes and Victorian inspired vineyards, Hope Estate is world renowned for its evocative wines pressed from branch to bottle. The maritime climate produces select, boutique and truly beautiful deep bodied reds and zesty, bright whites including Shiraz, Semillon, Chardonnay and Verdelho.
The carefully curated Kyneton vineyards bring a delicate note to the palate with its remarkable Virgin Hills. Resonating old world style one sip will transport you to the cobbled streets of Europe’s greatest cities with its fiery hues spilling the essence of sweet cherry, autumnal berries and finishing notes of coffee and tobacco. Be sure to pour a glass of the Donnybrook vineyards best – The Ripper. Only the ripest fat fruits are plucked from nature to create this astounding bottle with its fragrant dark berries, dried mountain fresh herbs and crescendo of spice.
Divine Dining in Seasonal Style
The Hope Estate not only delivers delectable sommelier style but when it comes to fine dining, the Harvest
Restaurant can perfectly match plate to palate. Grab a table overlooking the sparkling lakes and let your tongue savour every second of the fresh seasonal dishes crafted with love from Chef Mert Tansu. You can start with seared sea scallops sprinkled with a citrus essence and served with a garden fresh herb salad, move on to melt in the mouth homemade gnocchi with wild mushrooms and truffle cream. Finish with coconut Panna Cotta and late harvested poached pineapples to freshen your senses. The elegance of Harvest Restaurant can be found in its inspired dishes that perfectly complement the home grown wines.

In the heart of Hope Estate guests can keep things simple and choose to taste locally crafted beers paired with wood smoked pizzas fresh from the oven. Using the seasonal bounty from Mother Nature you can wash down each slice with a range of fresh hoppy beers ranging from caramel notes to mead and honey.
