An ideal taste of what the Hunter Valley has to offer. Perfect for people who are in the region for only a limited amount of time.<br><br>We visit 3 boutique wineries for a private tasting of their delicious wines. At one stop we will conduct our famous cheese &amp; wine masterclass where we teach you to match 9 different cheeses with 9 different wines.<br><br>Our tours are informative, professional, fun, and our tour partners offer great wines and look after our guests very well.

We had a lovely tasting here on a rainy Friday afternoon. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable without being pretentious. Loved the little cheese platter also. The wines at Scarborough were beautiful & the winery itself is gorgeous. Absolutely a must try next time you are in the Hunter.

We were a group of 4, plus 2 children, without a booking on a Saturday and were made to feel most welcome and provided with excellent service and an outstanding tasting experience. With some quality wines, red and white, to taste, along with cheese and biscuits, for $20pp, this was a value experience. We were told tasting would take around 45 minutes to an hour. It was not rushed, was informative and enjoyable. Undertaken with very good Covid practices, including temperature checks and excellent social distancing. The old farmhouse is lovingly restored and maintained, gardens and vineyards offer stunning views, and wine is high quality. The Hunter experience at its best.

We had a gorgeous tasting today and were assisted by Danielle, very knowledgeable but not pushy and made us really comfortable and catered for all our individual tastes. Highly recommend as the tasting is an experience accompanied by a cheese tasting plate with dried fruits, a lovely way to experience the true flavours of the wines. The dessert wine is the perfect way to finish 👍

Scarborough's wine tasting experience has to be among the best in the region. Small bottles of your chosen wine package, together with a small cheese plate - means you can have a quick slurp and take the rest of the bottle away with you! Kelly was our host and gave us a great overview of each wine, together with an interesting history of the winery - she was quite delightful and very engaging. The vineyard itself is quite beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our tasting experience. Thanks Kelly!

Living in Hunter Valley and having a lot of free time, my wife and I have been to pretty much every cellar door offering wine tasting in Hunter Valley. We have whittled them down to our favourites and today we returned to our favourite for Valentines Day to find the experience has improved even further since our previous visit. While waiting briefly for our table to be prepared, we were asked to wait out the back with the lovely views and atmosphere, perfect for the obligatory Facebook pictures. From there Liam, our host took us to our own private alcove and table with 7 wines and a matching cheese platter laid out with lovely views out of our window. Liam explained the wines and cheese matches very well, returning after every 2 glasses to update us on the next 2 wines. The wines were all lovely, though my wife and I each preferred different wines in each pair, but we both agreed the cheese platter matched the wines perfectly. The wine and cheese tasting experience here is just so much better than the usual wine tastings where you stand awkwardly at a bar and point to different wines to have a taste of while waiting for the bar man to get to you. It is $20 each for this wine tasting , but it is well worth it in so many ways. It certainly made our Valentines Day special after a disappointing lunch at another location.
