The Hunter Valley Wine Festival is back and this time, our local beer offerings are on the table too! Set to come to the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley this Saturday 19 June 2021, it promises a vintage event with the best of Hunter Valley wines, craft beer, cider, local foods and entertainment.

With wines from over 40 of the Hunter Valley’s best wineries and craft beer producers available for tasting at the Festival, the Festival will now be split into two ticketed sessions from 11am to 2pm and 3pm to 6pm to ensure a safe and chilled environment.

The Festival has been expanded to incorporate beer producers because of the growth in premium craft brewers across the Hunter Valley, including the onsite Sydney Brewery Hunter Valley, which will be offering behind-the-scenes tours and premium beer and cider tastings throughout the day.

The Festival will highlight the increasing diversity of wine styles being produced in the Hunter Valley. While the region is best regarded for its Riesling, Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz varietals, this year will see a far wider spectrum of local wine varietals on offer for tasting including Verdelho, Tempranillo and Sangiovese as well as sparkling and Rosé styles.

Live entertainment will be offered during the day, and a wide selection of food stalls will operate to provide the best of Hunter Valley cuisine.

The Hunter Valley Wine & Beer Festival is a family-friendly event, with children receiving complimentary entry to the Festival, where they will enjoy a variety of activities including a jumping castle, train rides, carousel, petting zoo and face painting.

Once again, the Festival will support the local Rural Fire Service, with fundraising activities on the day.

Advance purchase tickets will be available for $15pp ($25pp on the day) through Moshtix (booking fees apply). Children have free access to the event when accompanying adults.

Tastings are available for $2 each (30ml wine, 75ml beer/cider).
