Great weekend away at wine festival
The Hunter Valley Wine Festival, now in its 4th year, will be at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley at Lovedale. This will be a great weekend to get away and discover a large variety of Hunter Valley wineries without the need to drive long distances.

The Hunter Valley Wine Festival originated from Jerry Schwartz, owner of the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, who was shocked to discover four years ago that there was no wine festival in the Hunter region. The Schwartz Family Company supports the local community and industry and is proud to celebrate the best of the Hunter region. The local Rural Fire Service will benefit from funds raised from the day's events. This will be a unique opportunity to taste the wine, beer and cider offerings, as well as gourmet food and live entertainment throughout the day in the one venue.

There will be family friendly activities with a miniature train, a carousel, a lemonade stall and other pursuits to keep the children entertained.

I have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley twice in the past and it is a superb resort atmosphere, with one of the best breakfasts around. Contact the Crowne Plaza for further accommodation details.
