There’s no need to travel to the Hunter Valley with so many boutique wineries in the local Manning Valley area. Make a day of it and visit a few, taking in the beautiful green countryside along the way.
Red Tail Wines in Marlee is definitely worth a visit – take a picnic basket and enjoy lunch under the vines with a local verdehlo.
Ghinni Ghinni Wines in Ghinni Ghinni is a popular choice, and the beautiful Great Lakes Winery at Wootton has regular live music events, perfect for a family day out.
Further north, there’s Bago Winery and Maze, another great day out. Test your navigation skills in the maze, enjoy a cheese platter and a drink on the terrace and watch the kids have fun on the play equipment.
