From Scone, we drove back to the Upper Hunter Valley, through the
Lower Hunter, before taking the scenic route back to Sydney.
The Upper Hunter valley is much less 'touristy' than the Lower
Hunter Valley. The wineries are generally 'boutique' i.e. small
which generaly means that they offer better prices for their wines
than the large commercial wineries. I tried some excellent value
wines in these places (Cruickshank do some great reds - especially
a rose and a tawny port).
