A food festival is always great, but a food festival that runs for two months is better. The 2018 Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival is back and set to showcase so much delicious local produce it simply cannot be contained in a single weekend (or even a month).
A variety of food and wine-related activities will take place throughout May and June, including vineyard tours, winemaking masterclasses and gourmet dinners at award-winning restaurants. For the red-wine lovers out there, there's a De Iuliis Shiraz Masterclass, where you'll be taken on a journey of the origin of Shiraz, and get to drink some of De Iulii's Wines fabulous drops too. Fancy vermouth over a vino? No worries, the Vermouth Cocktail Masterclass at Margan Winery & Restaurant will have you whipping up delicious negronis in no time.
And if all that drinking works up your appetite, there's Heroes of the Hunter (a five-course degustation dinner on every night of the festival), the Whispering Brook Olive Long Table Luncheon (an olive-inspired lunch in the beautiful Whispering Brook groves) or the Hunter Valley Cooking School (where you'll cook a three-course lunch or dinner). Are you hungry yet? Us too.
