Hope Estate is proud to announce that in 2021, one of the Valley's favourite music days, Jazz in the Vineyards, will be enriched with botanicals and cocktails to become the first annual Hunter Valley Gin & Jazz Festival.
A great day out for groups of friends, ladies who lunch, and lovers of gin and jazz to come along to the Hunter Valley’s biggest beer (or should we say gin) garden at Hope Estate. Set on the rolling lawns of Hope Estate’s amphitheatre, enjoy G&T Tastings, a long lunch, a picnic, wine tastings, craft beer paddles, gin masterclasses & boutique local markets all to the background sound of live jazz tunes.
The Hunter's newest distillery, Tower Distillery & Winery, will be launching its range of premium gin at the Festival...what a way to kick off!
If you're here for the music, the line up includes John Morrison’s Swing City Band featuring Jacki Cooper, The Aston Martinis and The Djangologists. A Busking Competition is now open for expressions of interest.
Our local transport partner, Rover Coaches, continue to offer their bus transport with pickups from Newcastle, Maitland, Lake Macquarie, Singleton and Hunter Valley. A great option for groups!
Only 2.5hrs from Sydney, travelling for the day to the vineyards is an option with FREE PARKING onsite at Hope Estate.
You can of course make a weekend of it and take up one of the many accommodation options available in the Pokolbin, Broke, Lovedale, Nulkaba & Cessnock areas.
The Hunter Valley Gin & Jazz Festival is a wonderful way to enjoy a day of delicious small batch gins, great beer and wine, stunning views and live music. For those couples and groups looking for a leisurely long lunch, choose from a pre-purchased picnic hamper ticket or upgrade to a VIP ticket which includes a 3-course lunch & drink on arrival. It’s best to book your tickets early as the VIP tickets are limited.
