Hunter legend to reopen with new look



The former Tower Lodge resort in the Hunter Valley will reopen on July 1 after a $10 million renovation project.

The property will now be known as Spicers Tower Lodge.

Tower Estate was the brainchild of late wine expert Len Evans and the exclusive retreat is built in a modern Spanish mission style with views to Brokenback Range.

With an outdoor pool and hidden courtyards, it has serious Spanish vibe.

Spicers Tower Lodge has a stucco tower and terracotta tile plaza and was for many years a major tourism drawcard. It will be the third Spicers property in the wine region.

Leisure pursuits here will include archery, bike riding, golf, reading by the fireplace or enjoying the courtyard pool.

There will be daily wine tastings and garden tours as well as bespoke vineyard experiences in partnership with five local cellar doors and breweries.

The on-site Restaurant Sebastian will be inspired by the Basque region, offering dishes from bite-size delicacies to fresh seafood. Seasonal menus will highlight Hunter Valley produce.
