Although Hunter Valley is expected to have a Mediterranean climate as all the other parts of Australia do, the climate here is more of a humid subtropical one. Thus, this is known as one of the hottest and wettest wine regions in Australia.

Hunter’s wine regions

The Hunter region comprises of 03 sub-regions namely the Broke Fordwich, Pokolbin, and the Upper Hunter Valley. If you are planning your vacation at Hunter Valley hotels in close proximity to wine regions and yards, Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort located in Central Pokolbin will be a good option to consider.

Growers have their complete freedom to cultivate any type of grape that they wish and follow any procedure to get the maximum harvest.
