What is the best time to book & visit Vineyard Escape Tours for a wine tasting?

17 January 2023

The best time to book and visit Vineyard Escape Tours for a wine tasting would depend on several factors such as the type of wines you prefer, the time of year and weather conditions but really, It’s always a good time to visit!

If you prefer to visit with the vineyards and wineries in full swing, then the best time to visit would be during the summer months of Jan/Feb when the weather is warmer and the grapes are harvested. During this time, you will be able to taste the freshest and most vibrant white wines and rich red wines that are characteristic of the Hunter Valley region. The weather during this time is generally warm to hot temperatures, making it ideal for touring the vineyards and enjoying the scenery but remember to stay hydrated!

Each Season has its own special qualities for you to enjoy. Autumn still has all the lush green landscape coupled with milder weather. Winter is a time for pruning of the vines and preparing the vineyards for the growing season with the occasional beautiful sunshine winter’s day that memories are made of.  You may be lucky enough to attend ‘The burning of the barrel” Bonfire evening; as some vineyards celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of the growing season.

Also, keep in mind that weekends and holiday seasons tend to be more crowded and it may be harder to get a booking at your preferred wineries. Cellar door staff may also be dealing with several group tastings during busy times so the weekdays often provide a more intimate and leisurely tasting. It’s always a good idea to book in advance to ensure that you get the most out of your visit.

In addition, it’s also worth noting that wineries may also have different opening hours and days, so it’s always a good idea to check with the wineries to make sure they are open for tastings on the days you plan to visit. Or just let Vineyard Escape Tours do all the running around for you. It’s also important to take note of the weather forecast to make sure you’re prepared for any conditions.
