As you may have noticed the Hunter Valley Grapevine has been a bit quiet of late, Cam and I are organising our engagement party to be held in Pokolbin next weekend, so we have been a bit strapped for time. For the next couple of weeks we will list some info each Friday re what's on in the Hunter. We look forward to getting things back to normal around the middle of August, when we will get back into the swing of our regular reviews and information. Thanks for your patience!
What's on this coming weekend, 16-17 July in the Valley:
1 July - 31 July
