The winemaking lesson continues watching how a wine press actually works, the winemaker adding the yeast, seeing the juice start to ferment into alcohol and learn the art of wine blending and finally the wine being bottled. After the show, enjoy a private wine tasting, where the Cellarmaster takes you through the “structure” of wine. Smell the many bouquets of wine and of course what one should look for in the taste of wine.
Hunter Valley Wine School – Start with a walk through the vineyard to learn how and why a grapevine grows, followed by a comprehensive winemaking tutorial with a Cellarmaster. Follow this with a structured tasting of wines. At the conclusion you will be presented with a personalised Wine Appreciation Certificate.
