Two Rivers Hunter Valley Wines, NSW, Australia

Entrance to Two Rivers Wine Estate

We recently spent a fun weekend with our daughter, Jane, when we visited the Two Rivers Hunter Valley Wines vineyard. Here they offer wine tasting, and a cheese and antipasto platter of local produce which you can savour with the wine of your choice.

We so enjoyed the first wine that we tasted, we didn’t want to taste any more, so ordered a bottle of their Rocky Crossing Cabernet Sauvignon, together with the platter, and settled down to enjoy ourselves.

The view from the patio was amazing…

Everything was so beautifully manicured

The vineyard was named Two Rivers after its unique location on the banks of the Hunter River, near its confluence with the Goulburn River, the Hunter’s largest tributary.

We decided to test the wine before our food arrived. Cheers!

This was our cheese and antipasto platter

Here is another view

This was such a relaxing day, enjoying the food and wine while looking out over the vineyards with the  rolling hills in the background.

I went to inspect one of the vineyards

Here, in Australia, we are still in summer,
so there were no grapes to be seen

What a wonderful experience we had, and there was more. On the way home, we stopped off at the Pukara Estate, well known for its extra virgin olive oil and vinegars. There we enjoyed a coffee, before buying some of their olive oil, and caramelised balsamic vinegar.

The Hunter Valley is an amazing place to visit, we have only covered a very tiny part of what there is on offer here, and we are looking forward to more experiences like this.

Thank you, Jane, that was awesome.
