Love wine? So do we! Let us share our passion for wine & good times

We are Newcastle locals and provide a door to door service from the coast to the valley and down the vineyard trail. At Frankie's we're happiest when entertaining guests on a private tour and would love to show you and your guests just what makes the Hunter Valley so much fun. 

We're always delighted to be part of special occasions - whether it be a hens do, birthday, friends or family get together - we'd love to help you celebrate yours!

 

So whats on the menu?

Well of course there's wine but that's just the beginning .... then think chocolates, craft beers, cheese, long lunches and even organic vodka if you so wish!

Why Choose A Wine Tour With Us?

Let us look after the details so you can let your hair down and enjoy the day!

All of our wine tours as a standard include:

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!

100% Happiness Guarantee

Be assured we'll deliver on all our promises to make it a day to remember for all the right reasons... that's a guarantee!

Our Hunter Valley Tours

We offer two tour styles, plus some additional experiences to swap or add to the Vino All Day Tour... we're happy to take requests for any vineyards or experiences you're set on as well to make the tour yours!
