on friday, i decided to surprise michael with a quick getaway to the hunter. when i say quick, i mean quick. a friend of mine was in town on saturday and i wanted to catch up with her, so after some sufficient girl talk and catch ups, michael and i dashed away to the hunter. as we drove through the beautiful hawkesbury region, rain sheeting down, there was the most beautiful blush sunset that took my breathe away. upon arriving in the hunter we settled into the most delightful inn, 'the vine valley inn' which i book at the last minute and what a treat it was!! after checking in we dashed up to the royal oak hotel for a delightful dinner.
the next morning we had a big breakfast before i started into the the wines, michael was skipper. the wines in the hunter are so completely different from the barossa and margaret river and we totally loved exploring the region. tyrells wines was a great surprise then we grabbed some beautiful cheese from the hunter cheese co. what a treasure! overall it was a super quick trip, but what a wonderful trip. i loved exploring the region with michael and can't wait to head back to give the hunter some serious time!
