The Hunter Valley is taking a trip to the coast for the 10th annual incarnation of Hunter Valley Uncorked Balmoral. On Sunday, October 11, from 11am–5pm, Balmoral's gorgeous esplanade will transform into a wino's dream, crowded with stalls hosted by the Hunter's best winemakers, producers and chefs.
More than 20 wineries will be in attendance. These include big names like Tyrell's, Hungerford Hill and Brokenwood, as well as boutique labels, such as Allandale Winery, De iuliis and Eagles Rest. Needless to say, there'll be an endless array of semillons to sample, but you can also expect some unusual and experimental varieties.
Meanwhile, a handful of the Hunter's top-notch eateries will be joining forces to bring you matching tasting plates — namely, Ridge View, The Cellar, The Verandah and Twine. And dessert will be taken care of in the form of gelato, fresh home-made lemonade and choc-dipped strawberries.
Keeping your ears happy will be acoustic blues-rock duo, Daley Holliday, with a steady program of old classics and new hits. To get you there and away safely and easily, free shuttle buses will be running every 15 minutes from Mosman and Spit Junction.
