Unique, private luxury full or 1/2 day tours. 2- 10 guests only. By limiting our tours to max 10 guests we have access to small family-owned wineries that have excellent wines but do not take bigger groups. Pickup from Hunter Valley only in luxury Mercedes Benz vehicles. My wife's ancestors planted some of the first vines in the Hunter Valley in 1853 and just never left. We have looked after visitors to our region since 1998. In 2008 we added some tours to our business to the delight of many guests. We offer 2 different full day tours, our very popular 'Progressive winemakers Lunch tour' and 2 half day tour to choose from. Or we can tailor a tour to suit your needs. Our aim is to show our guests great food, great wine and have loads of fun. Educational, yet light-hearted. Our tours are unique, over time, we have build up trust with local chefs and (boutique) winemakers, who all offer a personalised experience. Because we only have a small number of guests on our tours we can be flexible and tailor our tours to suit you. We can also assist with your accommodation needs if needed.

We've done a number of winery tours in various places around Australia and this is up there with the best of them. The wine and cheese matching at the Two Fat Blokes restaurant was excellent, a great way to showcase local wines and cheeses. The first stop of the morning, Mistletoe Winery, was one of the most laid back and... More

I've given the tour an average as we were very disappointed with the lunch stop. The first two tastings were very good and informative. The third tasting and lunch stop was not good. The guide whisked us through the wines, so much so we'd not finished one wine before the next arrived. The generous lunch turned out to be no... More

Great tour of several winery's in a spacious mini van. Cheese and chocolate were also really good. We also got a little bit of the local history from our driver Mark between each stop which was nice. Would highly recommended this tour, the reviews speak for themselves!

Andrew was our driver and he entertained us with stories of the wineries while driving us to 4 small wineries. The hosts at each winery were informative about the wines and gave us insight to what we should expect with each one. We liked some and disliked some. But that is what wine tasting is all about! The tour ended... More

Brian our driver picked us up on time. We visited some fabulous wineries had a cheese and wine tasting at the Two Fat Blokes kitchen. Went on to have lunch at Audrey's with glorious views of the vineyards and hills. Brian was very informative and great fun to be with. There were ten of us on the bus and after... More

Our 'fat bloke' tour guide was actually Julie - categorically not matching the description, but great fun as the host for a boozy morning! Comfortable transport and a good-sized group. Nice winery selection, with interesting and informative tastings, and the matching cheeses on the Fat Blokes' home turf was a nice bonus. Just a shame we couldn't fit more bottles... More

Had a fantastic time with Jules on the full day tour. Drank loads of wine, had amazing views and exposure to the Hunter during our first visit. Was a very comfortable day in the air conditioned van in 30+ degrees 90% humidity. Would strongly recommend to anyone, young and old, for a fun easy going tour!! Thanks Jules!!

Excellent tour including two wineries (Gundog and Ivanhoe) and cheese / wine matching at de luliis wines . An informative and entertaining morning with good company : both guests and our tour guide Mark. Even though I have previously visited many Hunter wineries, this tour ticked the boxes: fun, knowledgeable and included beautiful cheeses plus we didn't have to drive!... More

Our second tour with Two Fat Blokes and the tours just get better. Our driver and guide Bryan exceeded our expectations with his knowlege of the area and wines. The wineries visited were exceptional as were the cheese and chocolate matching experiences. Well worth the money and time.
