Tinklers Winery, Hunter

Tours of wineries can be booked directly with cellar doors or with an organised tour. Many wineries operate a cellar door policy, which allows visitors to simply turn up and taste and buy their wines. For those who enjoy the freedom of doing their own thing, this is a great option.

Arranging a tour directly with the winery means that you will usually have to find your own way there, but it does offer the freedom of choosing where you want to visit. Alternatively, a tour through an organised group tour will provide transport to wineries and expert commentary. Tour guides also run regular trips from Sydney, Newcastle and other centres to this beautiful region.
