1. My Hunter Story ...

This is our 26th year in the Hunter Valley, having started Mistletoe from scratch.

Ken describes his journey of food & wine to the Hunter on their website, its a great read.

2. The local secret (that I am prepared to share is) ...

A picnic on the Brokenback Range is a must do, especially if visiting in late Spring when the vines have their new green foliage.

3. Local life is ...

As good as it gets. Great climate, peaceful, many great local industry mates & a genuinely supportive community.

4. One thing that's good to know when visiting ...

Allow plenty of time as there is so much to fit into a visit.

5. Three things that you should do when in Newcastle/Hunter...

  1. Visit Newcastle Harbour precinct
  2. Picnic on the Brokenback Range
  3. Visit the smaller/family owned & operated wineries, you'll often get to meet the owner/grower/maker.
