Each year at the Wine Media Conference we cooperate with the local industry to organize five-hour wine country excursions into the local wine region. Below are the six planned excursions for Friday, October 11 in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales, Australia.

These excursions have traditionally been “mystery” excursions in which conference attendees have no idea where they are heading when they board a bus. This year we are making a change by publishing the host venues and other details in advance. Attendees will be able to choose their destination on a first come, first served basis upon checking in to the conference on October 10.

These five-hour excursions are mini media tours complete with tastings of unique and award winning wines, education, dinner, beautiful scenery, and opportunities to meet local industry players. They are included in the price of the conference, thanks to the generosity of participating wineries and restaurants and the organization of the Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association.
