Hunter Valley Boutique Accommodation
It has just been brought to our attention that an international team of scientists has released the results of a new study, and we felt we needed to share their findings with you: Life is better when paired with a glass of wine.
It’s simple logic, if you think about it. Amazing gourmet dinner? Wine. Cuddling in front of the fire with that special someone? Wine. Afternoon by the pool? Wine. Evening with the in-laws? Definitely wine. It only makes sense, then, that the best vacations are those where you can (sometimes over-) indulge in the wonderful stuff.
Australia’s Shiraz Shangri La is in Hunter Valley, about two hours north of Sydney. As a footnote to their study, the scientists also concluded that wine tastes better after you’ve booked Hunter Valley boutique accommodation. You can’t argue with science!
Hunting for Fun in the Valley
We really don’t need a whole paragraph to tell you to visit a winery. But seriously, visit a winery. There are vineyards as far as the eye can see. Rumour has it so much wine has been spilt over the years that you can taste it in the soil…er, maybe don’t try to prove that theory.
Ask the nice folks at your boutique hotel in Hunter Valley what their favourite winery is—then go take a tour of it! Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about wine—you’ll learn. Plus, there’s bound to be one bloke in the tour group wearing dark socks and sandals. Stand next to him, and you’ll instantly look and feel more sophisticated. Hopefully, we don’t need to tell you not to wear socks with sandals, right?
More Than Just Cheese and a Baguette
Not that there’s anything wrong with curling up in bed at your boutique Hunter Valley hotel with a bottle of wine and a pizza, but there are two other “gastronomically refined” ways to put food in your word-hole. You can take one of the bottles from your vineyard tour to a local BYO eatery like Lovedale Smokehouse. Or you simply visit a winery that also houses a restaurant: Two birds, one stone, as they say.
What Are the Best Boutique Hotels in Hunter Valley?
The reality is, with so much wine nearby, you can’t go wrong with any hotel in the area. Still it’s nice to wake up in a comfortable place with posh surroundings, modern amenities and personalised service—like these:
- H Boutique Hotel – With one and two-bedroom country-style suites, you’ll have more than enough room to throw a party—with the wine you purchased at the vineyard tour serving as the guest of honour. Although you’ll probably just want to use the well-appointed room to rest up in for tomorrow’s adventure.
- The Bronte Boutique Hotel – Built in 1822, the Bronte house was completely refurbished in 2014 and is now one of the most sought-after spaces in all of Oz. Here’s a Bronte Hotel hack: Use your cup from afternoon tea as a wine glass for the rest of the day, so no one will know how much “tea” you’ve imbibed.
