Naturally, with some of the finest Australian wines grown in the Hunter Valley, the region is also going to have the freshest foods to accompany the popular wine selections. Some of the most innovative meals will be found in restaurants located right at the wineries. Feast on fresh seafood and contemporary Australian cuisine or popular international dishes made with local, and in many cases organic ingredients. Whether it’s a quick snack with a wine tasting or a three or four course sit-down meal, winery restaurants provide fantastic menu options, not to mention gorgeous settings.

From small towns to the rolling countryside, visitors will find an endless choice of cafes and intimate restaurants where alfresco dining options are available. While the food is by no means pretentious, guests will notice the quality and attention to detail paid to each dish. The Hunter Valley restaurant scene excels at offering their guests not only delicious foods but a relaxing environment in which to enjoy it. If you care for a lighter snack, try a cheese plate with a glass of wine or sample the fresh baked goods that we all find so tempting. The Hunter Valley likes its coffee too and you won’t be disappointed by the rich blends on offer.
