Welcome to Hunterweb - your comprehensive guide to the Hunter Valley wines, vineyards, wineries and farm gate producers

As Australia’s most visited wine region, the Hunter Valley is an easy 2 hours drive north of Sydney and attracts guests from Australia and around the World who come to enjoy our regional wines, local produce, fresh country air and to experience the Australian country lifestyle.

Our website offers you a comprehensive guide to the area's wine producers: grouped into 'precincts' to allow visitors to find their way around the over 130 producers in the Australia's oldest and best loved wine region. The Precincts are not rigidly defined - here is a stylised map.

The Hunter is also home to a vast array of olive growers, cheese makers, bakers, chocolate makers, soap makers and passionate people producing interesting local produce on a tiny scale: way too small to consider supemarket distribution, but often available at the thriving local markets: there are usually a couple on every weekend somewhere in the Valley.

Vineyards

Vineyards

The secret to great wine is great vineyards and like many other wine areas the combinatio of soil, aspect, variety and attention to detail makes the difference between good and great.

Semillon, Chadonnay and Verdelho dominate the whites with plenty of interesting variations: try the Vermentino, Arneis and others. In reds it was always Shiraz but look out for Cabernet, Tempranillo, Barbera, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
