He owns and operates diVine Tours, a shuttle company that offers educational tours throughout the Hunter Valley wine region in New South Wales.
I signed up for the full day tour that included four winery tastings, a chocolate tasting, a cheese tasting, a wine making operation tour, and a gourmet lunch at a local restaurant.
Ray is well versed on all things wine. He grows grapes, makes his own wine and has traveled to various global wine regions.
Thusly, Roy peppers his tours with fascinating wine facts and fascinating history of the Hunter Valley wine region, all in his very pleasant and easy-going manner.
All the wines we tasted from the boutique wineries we visited were absolutely phenomenal. I learned so much about the Hunter Valley: • Australia's oldest wine region
• covers 2% of grape acreage in Australia
• produces just 3% of Australia's wine
• main grapes are Chardonnay, Semillon, Verdelho and Shiraz
And as an added perk, Roy will stop his van by a mob of kangaroos and snap a pic of you with them! 😊
I was duly impressed and would HIGHLY recommend scheduling a tour with Roy at diVine tours. If you're within the wide shuttle radius, he'll pick you up at your doorstep and drop you off at the end of the tour!
My Aussie tour mates, by the way, were a joy and a hoot! They indulged all my silly tourist questions with grace and humor. 💖💖💖
