Pillingers Hire is proud to serve the great people and community of the Hunter Valley. We are always excited at the opportunity to set up and work some of the great events in the area. Here are some of the events that we love to be a part of.
Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival:
We all know that the beauty and serenity of the great region is not the only thing that it is known for. The Hunter is world renowned for producing some of the greatest wine in Australia today. The Hunter is Australia’s oldest wine region and has been producing wine since the 1800’s it boasts over 150 different wineries. But that is not all, in addition to its wine the Hunter also produces cheese, olives, and olive oils.
With so much being produced here the Hunter Valley is somewhat of a foodies dream. There is no better place for than a festival to show off all of this amazing wine and food than the Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival.
Taking place between May and June each year there are numerous events happening all around the region. Wine tasting, tours and set menu lunches and dinners make sure that you get a taste of the good life and indulge in all that the area has to offer. But that is not all, get your hands or maybe even your feet dirty by taking winemaking and cooking classes or burn it all off with vineyard tours or a hike to explore more of the picturesque scenery.
There are five-star accommodations and award-winning restaurants scattered all throughout each featuring their own special offering. Book your accommodations in advance and look out for exciting concerts and live entertainment taking place in the area as well. The Hunter Valley is the favorite destination for many of the world’s best-known performers… Springsteen, Sting, The Eagles, Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Cold Chisel… need we go on? They’re all lured by the stunning vineyard backdrop, great wines, and country hospitality.
There is always much to do and much to see this is why Pillingers hire loves being apart of the Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival.
