Spicers Vineyards Estate, Hunter Valley

“We’re regular visitors to the Hunter Valley, with just so much to love about Australia’s oldest and most historic wine region.  It’s deceiving how large the Hunter Valley is and you don’t want to waste precious wine tasting time by crisscrossing the valley so it’s best to plan ahead.

On this visit, we’re exploring Around Hermitage Wine and Food Trail stopping at wineries, boutiques & breweries along Hermitage Road before settling in for a night at Spicers Vineyards Estate.

Around Hermitage Hunter Valley is synonymous with the grape varieties of Semillon and Shiraz, but you’ll also find varieties not often seen in the Hunter such as Pinot Noir and Chambourcin. The beauty of stopping at a cellar door is the opportunity to meet the owners or winemaker, chat about the latest vintage, taste new releases and purchase wines not always available in bottle shops.”
