Hunter Valley Helicopter Tour to Bimbadgen Winery

Overview - Fly from Sydney to Hunter Valley for a remarkable helicopter wine tour at Bimbadgen Estate

Embark on a helicopter wine tour to the renowned Bimbadgen Winery in Hunter Valley. Rated a full 5-stars by James Halliday Wine Companion in 2024, Bimbadgen is an unmistakable destination with its distinctive bell tower and sitting atop a hill in Pokolbin. It's no wonder the name "Bimbadgen" is derived from the local indigenous language meaning 'Place of Good Views' as it offers panoramic views of the Hunter Valley wine region in every direction.

What to expect - The ultimate helicopter winery tour in the Hunter Valley wine region

Board your private helicopter in Sydney for a 45-minute scenic flight to Bimbadgen Estate for an all-inclusive indulgence in local wines and contemporary Australian cuisine in the heart of the Hunter Valley wine region.

1st Stop: Wine Tasting at Bimbadgen Cellar Door

Experience a VIP arrival when your helicopter lands at Bimbadgen's private helipad nestled amongst the vines. As you disembark, you'll be escorted to the Cellar Door for spectacular views of the Hunter Valley ranges and a unique perspective into Bimbadgen's winery production area. Your Signature Experience wine tasting experience will then begin, offering only the very best Single Vineyard wines, hand-picked and aged from Bimbadgen's Signature Range. The selection includes their prized old vine Semillon, Shiraz, and Chardonnay varietals.

Bimbadgen is actually home to two vineyards dating back more than 50 years, Palmers Lane and McDonalds Road, and as you're expertly guided through your wine tour, you'll begin to understand just how different the soil types of each vineyard are. This rich diversity has led Bimbadgen to become the wine supplier of choice for multiple luxury hotel chains, including Hayman Island and Intercontinental Sydney.

2nd Stop: Winery Lunch at Esca Bimbadgen Restaurant

When your wine tasting has come to a close, your reserved table at Esca Bimbadgen Restaurant will become available for your delicious 4-course gourmet lunch. Esca Restaurant offers a seasonal menu of contemporary Australian dishes, allowing you to sample locally-sourced produce across a diverse menu with rich, Australian flavours.

Some of our favourite local dishes include the woodfired peaches with binnorie duetto and macadamia, beef tartare with hen's yolk, crispy potato and shallots, and yellow fin tune ceviche with young coconut and lime.. and we haven't even begun to mention the deserts yet!

Esca Restaurant has been a trailblazer in fine dining within the Hunter Valley and in 2018 was crowned the best national tourism restaurant in Australia, and your all-inclusive 5-course lunch experience will demonstrate exactly why they continue to receive these amazing accolades.
