Love wine? We'll then we're off to a good start!

With Monique, Frankie the mischievous turtle (you'll hear more about him later) and Momo the mini bus making up the entire Frankie's tour team from Newcastle to the Hunter Valley, we reserve weekends only for a perfect wine loving tour group match that ticks all the boxes: 

Are you... 

  •  A private group wishing to tour the Hunter Valley? 

We love celebrating special events such as birthdays, friends & family get togethers and classy hens parties 

  • A party size of 6 –11 guests?  

We're always happy to recommend some of our tour operator friends if your guest size is less than 6 or above 11 guests 

  • Wishing to be picked up from Newcastle or centrally within the Hunter Valley wine region? 

If you're coming from Sydney or further afield we won't be able to reach you sorry 


If you answered yes to all these questions then we'd love to make wine tour plans with you! 

Why lock in your weekend vineyard adventures with us?

We look after all the details so you can let your hair down and enjoy the day, with all of our wine tours as a standard including:


Your Choice of Tunes

We've got some of our favourite playlists already downloaded ready to hit play or let us know what tunes you'd like to hear ... with Spotify premium there's plenty to choose from!


Travel In Comfort

Our vehicles are all modern and come with air-conditioning to keep you comfortable between stops. We cater for small groups up to 24 guests so you'll never be herded around and enjoy all the leisurley benefits of a small group tour


Professional Driver Guide

Your professional driver will transport you from place to place but that's only the beginning - doubling as an entertainer and guide (sharing local stories & vineyard knowledge, and some games if you wish too), and by the end of the day most likely a new friend too!


Photos of Your Day

You'll have your own personal paparazzi (if you so wish) we'll snap the day away for you & send you all the pics at the end of the tour


All Food, Wine & Beer Tastings

Yes everything as detailed in the tour is included! We also include lunch on most of our tours so the day runs smoothly & you get the best dish selections on the menu!


Frankies Fiver

To give you the best tasting experiences at each place we visit and a dedicated cellar door host we often pay tasting fees on your behalf & gift you a Frankie's Fiver if you did wish to purchase a wine! It's our way of both looking after you and the vineyards we visit


Gift Giving

We love to show our appreciation for choosing us & once you have 6 guests or more the gifts start flowing!
