At Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia it’s pretty easy to get glamorous in the great outdoors. Our wine regions are easy to access, so think about getting back to grass roots by booking one of our wonderful range of wine-aligned picnic experiences. Here’s a selection close to Sydney (think Hunter Valley and Orange) as well as the world-famous Barossa Valley in sunny South Australia.
Picnic in the Vines, Audrey Wilkinson, Hunter Valley, NSW
Admire the stunning scenery on Audrey Wilkinson’s Picnic in the Vines experience. Collect your bottle of handpicked wine along with a picnic hamper and select a scenic location within the 270-acre property. Settle back and take in the picturesque views, immersing yourself amongst the vines where you will feel as though you have the whole vineyard to yourself! For true decadence, upgrade to a premium experience, complete with pre-set picnic, creature comforts, flowers, chocolates and boxed bottle of wine signed by the winemaker themselves!
Printhie Picnic, Printhie Wines, Orange, NSW
Savour the ultimate day-cation on a Printhie Picnic as you lounge on a picnic blanket, Printhie wine in hand, taking in the sensory delights of the surrounding vineyards, apple orchards and sweeping
