Escape from Sydney for a leisurely long weekend of wine tastings, spa sessions, and bicycle rides for two. Only two hours from the city, the Hunter Valley will delight your inner gourmand with its abundant offerings, especially at restaurant Botanica. While spending the evening with your travel partner and a bottle of your new-found-favourite wine on your very own veranda at Spicers Vineyards Estate, you may find talk has turned to how to stay forever.

MR & MRS SMITH SAY…
‘Glassed off, sun soaked and overlooking the serene vista of the Spicers vineyards, Restaurant Botanica is as organic as it sounds. And as the first tremors of caffeine stir the blood and house-made spinach-fetta quiches come and go, equilibrium is restored and life is enhanced.’ Read the full review.
‘Beautiful setting, everything put in place for a peaceful stay. Much appreciated snacks and drinks, fantastic breakfast with garden produce used. Wonderful dinner too!’ Kristi, Blacksmith, stayed January 2015
