Discover the wine and wineries of the Lower Hunter Valley
Discover the Lower Hunter Valley with James Halliday's Wine Atlas of Australia

If you come from overseas and have an interest in wine, it is a fair bet it is one of the two wine districts (the Barossa Valley being the other) you will have heard of prior to your arrival and which you propose to visit. For South Australians, it is an object of derision (with a generous dash of jealousy); for Victorians it is an area which arouses a mixture of curiosity and respect.
