Location

One of Australia’s most important wine regions, Hunter Valley in New South Wales is a must for any budding oenophile. Situated on an eight-acre private vineyard in Pokolbin, with views that fan out towards the bushland and breathtaking Brokenback Mountains, Spicers Vineyards Estate puts you right in the heart of the valley and its bounty of wines. Just over an hour from Newcastle and 2.5 hours’ drive from Sydney, it’s the ideal city to country retreat.

Rooms

A true boutique experience, Spicers offers 12 guestrooms that come with that special, personal touch. Free bubbly on arrival sets the tone, before you check out your plush, king-sized bed, open fireplace and ensuite spa bathrooms. The hotel’s first-floor rooms enjoy the best views, or on the ground floor have French doors that open out onto a veranda. Fluffy bathrobes, luxury bath amenities and spacious open-plan lounge areas are all designed to make your stay as cosy as possible.

Activities

Aussie afternoons are all the better at Spicers, which lays on boules and life-sized chess to keep you amused. Horse riding, garden tours and even hot-air ballooning can all be arranged in the area and that’s before you get started on the food and drink. Book on a gourmet tour and you may be tasting local cheeses, olive oils and craft beers, or taking a walk in the fresh air exploring a range of boutique wineries – with all the tasting that follows.

Dining

Priding itself of its provenance, Restaurant Botanica is one of the Hunter Valley’s most charming. A simple interior that looks out over the vines is the backdrop to a superb seasonal menu and a hard-to-beat wine list. Start off with an entrée of beef carpaccio or ricotta-filled courgette flowers; move on to mains of hoisin smoked lamb or pan-fried kingfish; and be sure to round off with a financier or tart and cheese board. Too numerous to mention, the wines include the best of the Hunter Valley, as well as top international labels.

Spa

Newly opened, Spa Anise is a small but perfectly formed escape, offering everything from aromatherapy massages to full body pampering with Australian natural products. The two timber-floored treatment rooms with private courtyards are located close to the peaceful outdoor pool, which is close enough to nature that you can hear the call of the birds in the trees as you take your relaxing dip.

Golf

When you’re not sipping on fine wines, you may want to strike out to one of the Hunter Valley’s first-rate golf courses, such as The Vintage or Cypress Lakes. The former is an 18-hole Greg Norman-designed course that is ranked among the best in the country. Meanwhile, Cypress Lakes features an 18-hole Championship course that overlooks sprawling verdant bushland.
