Food and wine in Lovedale and Pokolbin - Hunter Valley
Best food and wine in the Hunter Valley
The Hunter Valley region attracts more visitors than any other wine region in Australia. It includes the Hunter Valley area around Pokolbin and Lovedale, and the Upper Hunter area that includes Scone and Muswellbrook. Fine dining, excellent wines, quality producers, great chefs and food and wine events are tempting enough. Add spa retreats, championship golf courses, relaxing accommodation, country antiques and galleries and it's easy to see why it's such a popular destination.
From Pokolbin and Rothbury to Mount View and Wollombi, Broke and Lovedale, there are around 150 wineries, many offering complimentary tastings.
There are plenty of ways to enjoy the famous wines of the region. Join a bicycle tour or sink back into the comfort of a horsedrawn carriage. Join a food and wine matching course at the Hunter Valley Cooking School or try one of the plethora of food and winery tours in the Huner Valley.
The Hunter is home to some of the best regional dining in NSW. Roberts, Muse, The Old George and Dragon, and Esca Bimbadgen are just a few. Produce highlights include the Hunter Valley Smelly Cheese Shop, Binnorie Dairy, Morpeth Sourdough, Hunter Belle Cheese and Pukara Estate's olive oils.
