This wonderful team building activity starts with the very best ingredients. The best flour, garden fresh tomatoes, and the best quality local produce. Sauces are made from scratch, in the traditional Italian way. Once the pizza bases are ready – then on goes the toppings and into the pizza oven. Your own lunch prepared by your own hand!

Itinerary Details

The fun side of seeing a winery in action is when the grapes are being picked and put through the crusher at the winery – which for The Hunter Valley happens only in January and February. For the rest of the year action at in winery is generally pretty quiet. Not so with the new Hunter Wine Theatre…
You will experience up on the big screen:
1. The Hunter’s wine heritage, Australia’s oldest wine area.
2. How grapevines are maintained
3. See the annual grape harvest
4. The grape crusher in action
5. The actual winemaking process:

a) Fermentation (Conversion of fruit/sugar into alcohol)
b) Filtration of the ‘new’ wine
c) Racking and barrel fermentation/storage
d) Blending of wines
e) Bottling process
Then – on with the lights and a 15 minute wine tutorial with the Cellarmaster.

A wine tutorial is where we take you on a learning experience with a bracket of 4 wines. Here we teach you how to taste front palate sweetness, acidity, and back palate tannins, and most importantly exercising your nose to appreciate the bouquet of wine. It’s that simple…
