Hungerford Hill's architecturally stunning cellar door and two-hatted restaurant make it one of the most recognisable wineries in New South Wales, let alone the Hunter Valley. Established back in 1967, the boutique vineyard overlooks the Brokenback Ranges. Head to the barrel-shaped tasting room and the accompanying underground cellar to sample a range of the region's best drops, including Hungerford's preservative-free or single-vineyard series. Or sit in either the sculpture courtyard or indoor terrace and indulge in a six-course mini degustation ($50) with paired wines.

The estate's fine dining restaurant, Muse Restaurant, is housed next door, within its own stunning building. Run by Troy Rhoades-Brown, Muse serves contemporary Australian fare, with a seasonally changing menu. Dine a la carte or opt for a tasting menu with wines to match. Plus, don't forget to pop into the Hungerford Espresso Bar for a caffeine hit before you roll out.
