When you see vineyard, you know you arrive at Hunter Valley.
Hunter valley is famous for its wine. Especially the Semillon and Shiraz. We spent one morning in the wine school. It was so much fun to learn about wine tasting and we tried so many kinds of white and red wine. We even got a certificate after the class.

The wine school also provides room to stay, but we stayed in another guest house called “Splinter’s Guesthouse”. There are only 3 rooms and the room is really lovely and Bobby, the owner provided us delicious cheese and dessert wine! It was really amazing and relaxing just to sit outside while enjoying the wine during the evening. The place is very calm and I felt so close to the nature! The breakfast prepared by Bob was so delicious!!

We had dinner at restaurant Botanica which was recommended by Bobby. The place is around 15 min walk from our guesthouse. I must say that was really the BEST meal I’ve ever had in my entire life!!!!! Everything is perfect especially the lamb! I would definitely go back to Hunter Valley again for the lamb!!!!
The weather was great during our stay in Hunter Valley… maybe I should say.. HOT!!! We visited another winery “KEITH TULLOCH WINE” and had wine tasting there. It was great and we bought two bottles of wine back home! The wine we bought from the winery and wine school are very popular among our friends and I really think we need to get back here and buy some more ;p
