闖蕩悉尼獵人谷
Deep into The Hunter Valley

品美酒、享人生,旅遊之一大樂事也。澳大利亞貴為世界頂級葡萄酒出產地之一,對葡萄酒釀製要求極致;而整個澳大利亞又以悉尼獵人谷為最古老葡萄種植區,以釀製出色葡萄酒聞名於世,蘊釀出一種閒逸華美而備有要求的生活態度;要以最超然的角度欣賞這個好山、好水、好風光的沃腴之地,莫過於自空中以熱氣球俯視這片綠蔭大地,再折返人間感受此地區出產的精緻美酒美食、奢華水療、高爾夫球,360度全方位盡享悉尼最華美精彩的一面。
Nothing beats a sip of fine wine amid a trip, especially when it is in Australia and completed with a hot-balloon ride. Australia is now a top wine producer in the world. Among the many vineyards across the country, those in the Hunter Valley have the longest history and are best known. As the balloon goes up, a stunning view of the vast land comes into sight; as it descends, local fine wine and delicacies, luxurious spa, and golf await.


空中佳釀微醺

鄰近悉尼的獵人谷位於澳大利亞新南威爾士,整個地區約29,000平方公里。從1824年栽下第一株由歐洲引進的葡萄藤開始,憑著天時、地利、人和,以及認真的品質改良,終奠定了澳大利亞葡萄酒在世界舞台上之地位。如今,在獵人谷內約有150個大大小小的葡萄酒莊,各以自家秘方釀造出不同口味之美酒。

想用最悠閒的方式欣賞葡萄園,跳上熱氣球從上空俯瞰就是最佳選擇。一般遊客參加熱氣球活動,多是與十數人一起升空遊覽。想得到截然不同之體驗,這裏可奢侈地獨佔一台熱氣球,盡享私人訂製更獨特的旅程。只有倆口子浪漫地飄到葡萄園的上空,享受晨光初露,一邊欣賞獵人谷美景,一邊啖著氣泡酒和巧克力,陶醉於迷人的氣氛之中。早上清新的空氣使人心曠神怡,陽光映在葡萄園上帶來一片金光,景色更是迷人。當熱氣球旅程完成後,還會安排到當地酒莊Peterson House Winery內聲名及評價俱高的Restaurant Cuvée享受早餐,接著會安排一次華麗的品酒活動,一次過將獵人谷的美景、美食和美酒精華盡攬。

還有另一種有趣的玩法,是約好三五知己或與家人同行,包一台熱氣球暢遊獵人谷,試一次別開生面的高空早餐派對。熱氣球上早已有專人設好雅座,準備招待貴客。當熱氣球徐徐上升,晨霧輕蓋著翠綠葡萄園,如幻如仙的美景就在眼前。

The Hunter Valley in New South Wales enjoys its close distance to Sydney. Ever since the first grapevines were imported from Europe and planted in 1824, the area has grown to become one of the best wine production regions in the world, now housing about 150 vineyards.

A hot-air balloon ride marks the most relaxing way to see the region, either in a group or just by yourself and your loved ones. The golden morning rays and stunning scenery are accompanied by sparkling wine and chocolate. Breakfast at the famous Restaurant Cuvée follows and the experience concludes with a wine tasting session.


酒鄉游天與地

當大家仍在沉醉在迷人的景色之中,早餐已由專人端到熱氣球桌上。早晨餐單由Restaurant Cuvée的主廚Chad Pridue主理,並配上酒莊佳釀來品嘗。微風、晨霧、和煦的陽光、舒爽的空氣,加上美景和微醺,此刻與摯愛親朋共享的時光,絕對是旅程上難忘而難得的畫面。這種熱氣球體驗,更並非一般熱氣球之旅能夠媲美。

獵人谷歷史悠久也是區內最受推崇的十大酒窖之一,Audrey Wilkinson酒莊剛度過其150周年歷史,驅車往酒莊的旅途一片秀麗田園景色,遊逛完葡萄園可以進入葡萄酒博物館欣賞一下百年釀酒業的堅毅,然後自然要品嚐佳釀,這裏有澳洲酒評家James Halliday給予94 高分的The Rdge Semillon任由旅客品鑑,走到陽台澳大利亞陽光底下,一邊瀏覽着浩瀚的葡萄藤之海,一邊暢飲着冷厲的冰葡萄酒。若想以更獨特、更深層次的角度遊走獵人谷,可以選擇1858年百年酒莊Tyrells,由駐酒莊侍酒師安排的尊尚私人品酒之旅,酒莊能安排特別的私人直昇機觀光之旅,以獨特的方法欣賞這片澳大利亞最古老的葡萄園,沿途更有專人講解酒莊歷史和故事。

Visitors can also choose to have a private breakfast party in the balloon with friends and family. Tables and seats are set, and as the balloon takes off, breakfast is served.Prepared by Restaurant Cuvée’s master chef Chad Pridue,the food is paired with wine from a local vineyard, and enjoyed over the morning mist and breezes.

One of the most recommended vineyards in the Hunter Valley is Audrey Wilkinson. There, a museum showcases the vineyard’s 150 years of history and visitors are invited to taste the highly regarded The Rdge Semillon, which received a score of 94 from Australian wine critique James Halliday. For a deeper immersion in the fine history of the area, Tyrells is another century-old vineyard which features private wine tours and helicopter rides.


深度品酒體驗

無論在空中或地上品酒,已經是優遊獵人谷的指定動作;另一個有趣的體驗方式,便是到獵人谷葡萄酒學校或葡萄酒劇場了解有關當區葡萄酒的更多知識。獵人谷標誌性之葡萄酒以白葡萄釀製的賽美蓉最為著名,紅葡萄酒則以設拉子最出色;其餘則有蕾絲伶、莎當妮等白葡萄酒,以及黑皮諾、卡本納法藍等紅葡萄酒品種。不少葡萄酒莊園都在近數十年來打響了國際知名度,如Lindemans、McWilliams、Rothbury、Hardy’s等。

葡萄酒學校提供兩小時的有趣課程,帶來一次深度的獵人谷葡萄酒體驗活動。由穿梭於葡萄園之間介紹當地的葡萄品種、種植和釀酒知識,到由專業葡萄酒大師講解,再親身以味蕾品嘗不同葡萄酒的口感,評分、紀錄,最後能獲得有關證書。至於葡萄酒劇場,則以嶄新的方式,先由大銀幕帶你走進獵人谷的葡萄酒世界,再來在葡萄酒師帶領下,親自品嘗不同特色的葡萄酒的層次特色,是一趟深度的品酒旅程。每年十月,在獵人谷會舉行一年一度的葡萄園歌劇節,將葡萄酒與藝術結合一起,更是其中一個不能錯過而難得的盛事呢!

Hunter Valley Wine School and the Wine Theatre are best for visitors looking to enrich their wine knowledge. Among different wines,the iconic white wine and red wine are Sémillon and Shiraz respectively here. In recent years vineyards such as Lindemans, McWilliams, Rothbury and Hardy’s have been internationally renowned.

The two-hour class at the Wine School sees a professional wine master take visitors through the types of grapes, planting information,and the art of wine making. Certificates are given to visitors after a tasting session. The Wine Theatre, on the other hand, first takes visitors through the Hunter Valley on a big screen, and then guides them through the layers and characteristics of different wines in a tasting session. Every October, Opera in the Vineyards blends wine and art,drawing locals and travelers alike.


葡萄園中揮桿

美酒、美食與高球都是寫意生活一大享受,在獵人谷內當然可以在同一旅程內盡享。在這個古老的葡萄酒之鄉,擁有專業級的高爾夫球場設備,區內有三個具備錦標賽標準的高爾夫球場,包括獵人谷高爾夫球鄉村俱樂部、賽普拉斯湖高爾夫鄉村俱樂部及溫緹吉高爾夫球俱樂部,可以讓高爾夫球迷大顯身手。

在這三個高球俱樂部當中,最值得推介的是獵人谷溫緹吉高爾夫球俱樂部,它擁有頂級高爾夫球場球道,並有壯麗的斷背山脈作為映襯。它更是新南威爾士唯一一個出自著名高球手Greg Norman之手設計、兼對大眾開放的高爾夫球場,對於高爾夫球迷來說,可說是非試不可。不能不提的是位於俱樂部內的獵人谷伊蘭堡酒店的The Spa at Chateau Elan,是當地著名的水療中心,設有多間水療休息室及兩個備有暖鹽水的「海水浴療法」室外熱水池,能將打球後一身的疲憊一洗而清。

For golf lovers, the trip will be further enhanced with a visit to one of the three professional driving ranges there – Hunter Valley Golf and Country Club, Cypress Lakes Golf and Country Club and The Vintage Golf Club. With the Broken Back Range in the background,The Vintage Golf Club is not to be missed. It is the only driving range in New South Wales designed by renowned golfer Greg Norman. The spa at hotel Chateau Elan Hunter Valley inside the club offers soothing treatments to rejuvenate a tired body after golfing.


樂饗以日作夜

回到悉尼海岸,當然也不乏世界級球道,被全球高爾夫期刊《Golf Digest》喻為英美以外排名第一的高爾夫球場—新南威爾斯高爾夫俱樂部又豈容錯過,這個南半球排名第一的球場優越的地理位置,讓人可以欣賞太平洋的整個海岸線粗獷的壯觀景色,有陡峭的崖岸、也有起伏的丘陵,走在海洋拍岸濤聲中打球,在鬱鬱蔥蔥的大自然美景包圍下,您會發覺進入一種嶄新的球場體驗,也同時開啟了一種高球嶄新的視野。

嘗遍美酒,也揮桿累了,是時候好好享受悉尼城中風情,悉尼柏悅酒店座落於世界文化遺產悉尼歌劇院彼岸,橫空出世的海港大橋的派拉蒙式景象令人嘆為觀止。

酒店以澳大利亞古典建築藝術設計,別具風韻。置身一系列宏觀海港景色奢華客房,坐在落地玻璃門外的私人露台柔軟躺椅上,眺望金光閃爍的歌劇院今夜星光璀璨。房間全用本土自然織物傢俱陳設、細緻的當地羊絨毛地毯、海岸情境的燈光照明裝飾,還配上澳洲知名藝術家繪畫與藝術創作,打造華貴景致。專屬的管家團隊隨時為您安排水療香薰漩渦浴池,又或者在海港環抱的屋頂泳池上品嚐一杯香檳,環迴整個海岸櫛比鱗次的歌劇院、遊輪、架空大橋等景象,是靜謐地寵愛自己與身邊人無以尚之的選擇。

這裏還有首屈一指的The Dining Room及The Living Room餐廳,城中名人薈萃。在全景落地玻璃窗前一邊欣賞壯麗遊艇梭巡景色,一邊享用高級下午茶;待看遍紅日落到海平線的景緻,正是時候一嘗即場在客人面前燒烤的澳洲牛排和羊排,配上鄰近獵人谷出產的頂級紅酒,或者品嘗這裏碧波下新鮮淘上來的生蠔與龍蝦。若然有機會一睹新年或大節慶的海岸煙火表演,在這裏觀賞更是畢生難忘的震撼體驗!

Back in Sydney, New South Wales Golf Club is ranked the best driving range outside the United Kingdom and United States by global magazine Golf Digest.
