WooHoo Wine
Image by crestedcrazy
My DH got me a wine package for my birthday a few months ago and we went to bottle and pick it up yesterday 23/01/10

So I didn’t want to use their labels and I made my own with a graphic of my Chinese crested dog Wysie who we actually call WooHoo most of the time and hench the name of the wine because you also go woohoo when on wine …… or at least I do ….lol

I even did up a bar code on the bottom with the date of bottling đŸ™‚

Hunter Valley Wine Region

Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest wine producing region, its got heaps of wineries. I had a bit of trouble finding good information online, the wikikpedia page is brief. here is a very basic map of one if the wine areas The official tourism site is here. Your best bet is probably to give them a ring and drop into the visitors center for a chat and to pick up a proper map. The other option is to jump on a bus tour and have everything taken care of. I’ve never done this so I don’t really know what’s good, but search around, it looks like theres a few tour companies that do day trips out of Sydney, they’ll even pick you up from your hotel.
