Hunter Valley Uncorked Balmoral Beach – Sunday, 4 November 2012
Being able to do a Hunter Valley wine tour without having to battle the traffic on the F3 or squabble over who’s going to be the designated driver when you get there? Yes please!
Turns out this piece of brilliance was not invented by us. No, no. It’s real, and it’s now in it’s seventh year.
Yes, the 7th annual Hunter Valley Uncorked Balmoral Beach 2012 brings the Hunter Valley’s best wines to one of Sydney’s most popular spots for a wine tasting extravaganza on Sunday November 4, from 11am until 5pm.
Twenty-one of the Hunter Valley’s premium wine producers will be showcasing their wares.
Try the latest and greatest offerings from big name labels like Brokenwood Wines, McGuigan Wines, McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant, Tempus Two and Tyrrell’s Wines.
And discover the sensational delights of boutique producers Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard, De Iuliis Wines, and Glandore Estate Wines.
Of course, you’ll be making a beeline for the Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz for which the Hunter is reknowned, but you can also explore the lesser known and equally fan-tab-ulous Verdelho, Tempranillo, Barbera, Pinot Grigio and Rosé.
Entry is FREE. And you don’t even need to book tickets. Just turn up, grab your $7 souvenir tasting glass on arrival, and then sample as many Hunter Valley wines as you like for $3.50 each for a 60ml tasting or a full 120ml for $7.
Find something you like? Single bottle and six-case purchases can be made on the day, or you can use an order form for purchases of a larger scale for home delivery at a later date.
There’ll also be plenty of food and entertainment for everyone.
Still squabbling over the whole designated driver thing? Complimentary shuttle buses are available from Mosman’s Spit Junction to and from the venue.
