There’s truly nothing like a wintery weekend getaway with wine tasting built into the itinerary.

We cannot wait to hit the road in June—and, among the many other restrictions easing as of Monday, NSW’s many glorious cellar doors have also just been given the green light to resume operations.

“The NSW wine industry has faced drought, fires and the pandemic all in a short period of time and we cannot wait to start to make some new, more positive, memories with the wine-loving public,” NSW Wine Industry Association president Mark Bourne said in a statement.

“Of course, it won’t be back to normal exactly as there are still restrictions and guidelines in place to make sure we all stay safe. However, we are looking forward to those travelling to our wine regions in June joining us on this journey, as Cellar Doors offer new COVID-safe models for enjoyable wine tastings and experiences, along with our usual exceptional wines and service.”

NSW has 16 wine regions to explore and over 329 cellar doors—each of them offering something a little different to sip:

  • Hunter Valley
  • Southern Highlands
  • Canberra
  • Mudgee
  • Orange
  • Riverina
  • New England
  • Cowra
  • Hilltops Harvest
  • Tumbarumba
  • Shoalhaven Coast
  • Murray Darling
  • Gundagai
  • Hastings River
  • Perricoota
  • New England

So what are you waiting for? Start planning your big wintertime wine adventure now.
