THE Hunter Valley has been recognised as one of the finest wine districts in the world with the region winning a major award from the world’s largest travel site, TripAdvisor.
The site named the Hunter Valley the 2012 Travellers’ Choice Wine Destination Awards for the Australasian region.
The award is based on the reviews and opinions of millions of travellers.
NSW Minister for Tourism George Souris said he was delighted at the award.
“The Hunter Valley is Australia’ oldest wine region, dating back to the 1860’s and is recognised for excellence throughout the world,” Mr Souris said.
“Many original wineries are still in production, with a proud heritage of some of the oldest vine stock in the world. The Hunter Valley is currently home to over 150 wineries and has a rich history of Australian wine makers, including Len Evans, Maurice O’Shea, Murray Tyrrell, Audrey Wilkinson and Karl Stockhausen.”
Chief executive officer of Destination NSW, Sandra Chipchase, was also delighted.
“The Hunter Valley showcases excellence in wine production, tourism and accommodation in NSW and the Awards are a great recognition for hundreds of small businesses that ensured the Hunter Valley’s success as Australia’s number one wine destination.”
