-Just some of the latest from New Generation Hunter Valley-
Kicking off on May 5th, six of Australia's hottest winemakers will be taking their wines to the masses in what will be a whirlwind tour of the east coast of Australia, and if you haven't already heard – it's called the New Generation Hunter Valley "Not Your Usual Caravan of Courage"!
The New Generation Hunter Valley blokes (David Hook, Andrew Thomas, Rhys Eather, Nick Paterson, Mike De Iuliis & Andrew Margan) will be wining and dining their way through Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle, Port Macquarie, Coffs Habour, Byron Bay, the Gold Coast, Brisbane and finally Noosa where the tour culminates at the Audi Noosa Food and Wine Festival on May 13th – one might say there's no rest for the wicked!
But how are they going to get to all these places? Where can you buy tickets for these 'Not Your Usual' events? And what on earth are these guys going to be doing along the way?
Thanks to Drive My Car Rentals (www.drivemycarrentals.com.au), the New Generation crew will be travelling in the style and comfort of a fleet of luxury cars. Drive My Car Rentals are an online peer-to-peer car rental company connecting individual car owners with drivers looking for an alternative to traditional vehicle hire at a low cost.
You and your friends can be a part of the tour by coming along to any of the 'Not Your Usual Caravan of Courage' wine tastings simply by buying tickets (on sale soon) at the newly launched New Generation website www.newgenerationhuntervalley.com.au . And if you can't manage to make it to any of these events, never fear, as the fabulous team from Spitbucket www.spitbucket.com.au (the online community for all things wine) will be capturing all the excitement and banter on video, and this will be streamed live via the New Generation Facebook page (www.facebook.com/newgenerationhuntervalley), Twitter (@NewGenHV), YouTube, and the 'Not Your Usual Website'… it's all happening, so make sure you're following!
The New Generation Hunter Valley are also thrilled to announce some prominent brand partners, such as Riedel (for all your glassware needs), Budgy Smuggler (to keep them decent …just…when they decide to cool off in the Pacific along the way), FIJI Water (to keep the boys refreshed in style), and Roller Studio (a brand and lifestyle creative agency).
So, get ready for what will be a tantalizing taste of the Hunter Valley, coming to a town near you!
