WINE TIME: Lovedale Long Lunch returns in 2022

After a two-year hiatus, the popular Lovedale Long Lunch will make its return in May 2022.

The progressive lunch has become an icon of the social calendar with the Hunter’s leading chefs teaming up with seven Lovedale wineries to offer visitors fabulous food, great wine and live music among the vineyards.

“The Lovedale Long Lunch is a signature wine and food event for the Hunter Valley, and it attracts strong visitation and lasting memories,” Amy Cooper, CEO, Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association said.

“It is great to see the organising committee and operators planning ahead with confidence and we expect this event to once again be a great success, promoting the fantastic wine and food experiences in Lovedale, Hunter Valley.”

The seven host wineries for the Lovedale Long Lunch 2022 are Allandale Winery, Emma’s Cottage Vineyard, Gartlemann Wines, Saltire Estate, Sandalyn Estate, Tatler Wines and Wandin Valley. And like previous years, a continuous shuttle bus will run between venues.

Tickets are available for either Saturday or Sunday, or both, and you can visit up to three wineries per day.

Lovedale Long Lunch will hit the Hunter Valley on the 14th and 15th of May 2022. Early Bird Tickets will go on sale Thursday 16 December from 12noon to 9am Monday 20 December 2021. Visit to find out more
