For a taste of the Hunter Valley's finest food and wine without the long drive, take a day trip to the beachside suburb of Avalon, where you can experience all the delights of Australia's premium wine-growing region at Uncorked Avalon.

Returning for its second year, the one-day festival features 23 Hunter Valley wineries and a host of gourmet food suppliers coming together to provide a taste of what's to come at this year's Hunter Valley Food and Wine Festival.

As well as sampling your way through the goods on offer, you'll be able to brush up on your knowledge at wine masterclasses. Held at the festival's new semillon and oyster pop-up bar, the sessions will be hosted by four of the region's top semillon producers —Mount Pleasant Wines, McLeish Estate Wines, Tamburlaine Organic Wines and Tulloch Wines — and will see the variety paired with fresh Sydney Rock oysters. The sessions will set you back $45 a pop, but for the cost of the ticket you'll get a Riedel glass, a flight of wine and half-a-dozen oysters.

If wine's not your thing, there'll also be craft beers from the region and a host of local bites, including pastries, seafood, Italian street food and heaps of gooey and smelly cheeses.

Tasting vouchers are $4 each on the day, or you can skip the line and pre-purchase a Riedel wine glass with four tasting tickets online for $26.

Prepare your palate — it's set to be a big day of wining and dining.

Uncorked Avalon will run from 10.30am to 5pm at The Village Green at Dunbar Park.
