feel the earth, discover life-hunter valley wine country

A 2 hour drive north of Sydney, we spent a weekend at this beautiful wine country-Hunter Valley to draw away the layers of urban life. We were very fortunate to stay at this beautiful farmhouse (thanks to K's boss!), and I literally thought I was in a movie! Hunter Valley 's wine industry is one of the oldest in Australia, and is well known for its Semillon and Shiraz, and more recently Chardonnay And Verdelho. There are over 120 unique wineries to visit-ranging from intimate boutique cellar doors to internationally acclaimed wine brands.

After the weekend at Hunter Valley, I found myself breathing deeply and my body more relaxed...the experience of the different wineries were absolutely genuine, where I was able to savour and satisfy each moment. I cannot wait to go back!
