Lovedale long lunch was a great success again this year for Newcastle Limousines as we had car after car after bus after car up in the vineyards taking our guests - avid lunch goers, from one delicious stop the the next. Allandale, Tatler, Wandin, Emmas Cottage and Sandalyn were just some of the Wineries hosting this now legendary annual event. Revellers delighted in eight-hour slow braised lamb shoulder and roasted sweet potato, chocolate caramello cheesecake and Binnorie Brie with tomato and fig relish and crackers - and that was just one stop along the way. Dress ups, onsies, gigantic cowboy hats and everything inbetween could be found on our patrons, with bookings already being taken for The Lovedale Long Lunch next year. (May 16th-17th 2015).

In the world of business, few situations are as precarious as trying to impress a potential client. When good first impressions come into play, you’ve got your work cut out for you. Not only do you have to know how to dress, how to present yourself, and how to represent your company, you have to know when and how to provide for the comfort and enjoyment of your potential business partner.
Choosing the correct business outfit is an important step to impressing your client. So is ensuring that he or she enjoys a comfortable and luxurious stay while they’re in town. Another major aspect of making a great impression? Providing an executive limo for their commutes, no matter where they’re going. Why a limo? Let us explain.
Car Service is the Easiest (and Best) Way to Travel
Consider your potential client’s feelings when they arrive in your company’s home city, and they must immediately go to the car rental station, stand in line for upwards of an hour, and then drive themselves around a foreign place for the duration of their visit. There is nothing luxurious or comfortable about that situation. This is where your unique attention to detail comes in. Surprise your client with car service the moment their plane lands. Situate the Chauffeur in baggage claim with your potential client’s name on a sign. Let them enjoy the perk of having a professional driver help them with their bags. Once they’re comfortably situated in the back of the luxury vehicle, they’ll have the serene quiet and privacy that they need to make phone calls, answer emails, or catch up on their workload. Whatever responsibilities your client has on their time, they should never have to drive themselves when visiting your company.
Choose the Right Car
Finding a car that suits the luxury interests of your client is easy if you choose the company that has an impressive fleet. Consider the occasion and select a car that fits. Here are a few vehicles that are perfect for making a timeless impression on your client:
Consider the luxury sedan, capable of comfortably seating up to three passengers and carrying as much as 7 pieces of luggage. Your client will love the sleek, pristine look of the vehicle as they climb in the back. With leather seating, a state-of-the-art soundsystem, and plenty of room to stretch out, their travel will be comfortable and efficient.
Perhaps you want to show your clients require a little more room in the transportation you provide for their visit to your office. A chauffeured Tarago offers even more room for them to stretch out and plenty of cargo space for even the most challenging sets of luggage.
This vehicle is the ultimate in luxury travel for an important visiting client. Not only does the luxury limousine put forth a striking appearance, it also offers the utmost in interior luxuries, as well. Consider the ice bins, cabin partition, and complimentary glasses for any beverages your client might want to enjoy. There is also a TV and DVD to help them escape for a few minutes after a long flight.
Impressing a potential client requires a lot of executives; however, with the right car service vehicle from the right company, you can make the kind of first impression that leads to successful business each and every time.

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.

This festive season we have shuttled Santa's, and elf's and Elvis to boot. Dress up parties, themed events and all their Kris Kringle loot!
Santa may come but once a year, but here at Newcastle Limousines Christmas has been almost every day for the past month!
We have had a month of Corporate Christmas parties, shuttles, transfers and very merry guests, which makes us happiest of all to know they have been able to really relax and enjoy themselves without the worry of driving to or from their end of year cheer.
From the group of 40 enjoying lunch on the harbour, to family and friends catching up over dinner and arriving in limousine style, we have seen it all this Christmas and can't wait to do it all again next December. Our Staff particularly enjoy this time of year as everyone they chauffeur is in such a fun, relaxed and festive mood, it only makes us look forward to enjoying our own family Christmas experience, and one we hope all of you get to enjoy as much as we do.
From the team here, we want to say Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night (out with friends!)
