Discover 40 reasons to visit the Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival is up and running with the return of A Little Bit of Italy in Broke this weekend - to be followedby several other events. 

The region's wine and food culture will be showcased through a series of over 40 events across May and June, the event supported by Wine Selectors.

This year’s program sees the return, after a two-year hiatus, of signature events celebrating the sub-regions of Broke and Lovedale, as well as new and exciting additions to the program.

Visitors can wine and dine with some of the Hunter Valley’s leading winemakers and chefs, take part in a range of entertaining and interactive masterclasses to sharpen their culinary skills. 

“Given the challenges the of past few years for the hospitality, wine and tourism industries, we are delighted to be able to bring our signature festival to life again with a full program across both May and June,” said Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association CEO Amy Cooper.  

“The 2022 program is bursting with events and our chefs, cooks, winemakers and hospitality stars are ready to put their best foot forward to allow you to immerse yourself and experience Wine Country in all its glory.”

The festival kicks off today with the return of A Little Bit of Italy, a weekend-long festival celebrating wine, great food, and Italian country style hospitality in Broke Fordwich.

This year’s program also sees the return of the iconic Lovedale Long Lunch. The progressive lunch will run on May 14-15, with leading local chefs teamed up with seven Lovedale wineries to offer guests food, wine and live music al fresco among the vineyards. 

A new event on this year’s program is the Firelight Festival + Firewalk, aiming to shine on Singleton’s town centre with a light show combining unique sensory, hologram and immersive laser light experiences.

The Hunter Valley experienced high visitor numbers across the recent Easter and school holiday period.  “We encourage people to book all aspects of their visit early, including accommodation, wine tastings, events and experiences as well as restaurants if you don’t want to miss out” said Cooper.
