Hunter Valley Wine Tour or In-House Private Wine Experience?

Hunter Valley Wine Tour or In-House Private Wine Experience?

The Hunter Valley is home to many amazing cellar doors, each showcasing wines in various styles and varietals.

Why not driving to your favourite winery and then enjoying a private wine experience with wines from several private cellars and boutique wineries that you cannot find anywhere else? We offer exclusively Hunter Valley rare, back vintage or museums wines.

Traditionally, the way to see many cellar doors in a single visit to the Hunter Valley would be to book you and your group on a winery tour with one of the regions many fantastic operators. We know they are fantastic because everyone at Stay n' Sip has worked in a Hunter Valley cellar door so we have met many, many tour operators, some are even good friends.

Having seen, hosted and been on winery tours ourselves, we understand the differences between our service and theirs so who better to create the table below, designed to help you choose which service is right for you, your guests and your visit to the Hunter Valley.
