The Rolling Stones concert on Saturday 15th November was more than just hot, it was "On Fire'. Concerts in the vinyerads and Hunter Wine Country generally create excitement, but this concert rocked the Valley with our team having 28 cars, buses, limousines and mini vans all booked out for the day, taking very eager and excited Stones fans to watch and enjoy the event. It was one of the biggest events of the year for us, second only to the Loveldale Long Lunch, and great to see groups enjoying all the best drops of drink the Vineyards have to offer, by enjoying chauffeur driven transport. Another successful Hope Estate event.

We were busy as usual taking bus loads, car loads and mini-van loads of guests up to the Hunter for the weekend and transporting them around the vineyards to enjoy this renowned event. Our groups had a ball, with Tatler’s a favourite amongst everyone, and not surprising given the menu of Baked Atlantic Salmon, Grilled Prime Beef, Sticky Date & Walnut Pudding, an array of cheeses and live music by the beloved Saxanova and Hornet. Allandale was also a top pick with the Garlic Prawns and eight hour slow Braised Lamb Shoulder a hit…..not to mention the wine! Tastings were the main attraction at all the wineries, with the best drops the Hunter has to offer going down a treat. With groups already re-booking with us again for next year, we know why it is billed as one of the best weekends on the Hunter calendar.

Wynwood Winery & Twine Restaurant
This weekend one of our many clients indulging in the best the Vineyards has to offer took in two of the Hunter Valleys best kept secrets - Wynwood Estate and the recently opened Twine Resataurant on their Vineyard Indulgence Package.
After arriving at Wynwood Estate, our happy couple tasted Wynwoods traditional, premium quality wines. In the 1970’s, the vineyard was one of the best in the valley, and has recenty been purchased by an accomplished award winning team who knowingly apply their years of experience to bring the wine quality back to that of the old Saxonvale days. Today, using local vineyard knowledge, they prepare and nurture the old vines to produce excellenct fruit, while the winemaker hand selects the grapes to create such elegant Hunter Valley drops.
Desly Harris, the Vineyards new General Manager has 24 years experience in the wine industry, learning and working with some of the best winemakers and marketers in the Australian industry. Excited by the opportunity to work on a new venture; Desly is looking forward to working closely with the new owners and the Wynwood Estate team to achieve the potential of this famous old vineyard site and the Wynwood wine brand. Its a great spot to stop in and taste their delicious wine portfolio, including some fortified wines.
Following their tasting at the Cellar Door, the next stop was Twine Restaurant for lunch. Having opened in September last year, Twine is treating locals and regulars of the Hunter wine region to a new and exciting restaurant, where Chef's Matt Dillow of The Verandah Restaurant and long time friend from the kitchen, Adam Ireland are the proud new owners.
Overlooking the picturesque vineyards, Twine spills out onto a rose-trimmed courtyard fit for lunch in the sunshine, or evening cocktails under the stars. This stunning location ensures Twine Restaurant at Wynwood Estate a special occasion destination for visitors and locals alike. Twine Restaurant will be open 7 days for lunch and Friday, Saturday and Sunday for dinner although group bookings and events will be welcome any time.
