Stay n' Sip is the brainchild of two passionate wine nerds.

 

Bonjour!

 

Freshly arrived from Paris, Pierre was stunned when he discovered that all the Cellar Doors in the famous wine region of the Hunter Valley closed at 5pm.

Mon dieu! He thought to himself. Something had to be done.

You see, Pierre had been used to finishing his work day and then heading out to fancy wine bars where he could discover new grape varieties and then simply Uber on home. Easy!

 

Not here it seemed.

Yes, he could go to a fancy restaurant, but how to get there and home again safely? 

How to experience a tasting and not a whole glass?

How to come by wine knowledge after hours?

He decided that there needed to be a service that came to your accommodation after 5pm and delivered a fun, interactive and educational wine experience.

Voilà! Stay n' Sip was born.

Well, not quite. 

Enter Mercedes.

G'Day! 

No wait, she is half Mexican. We mean... Hola!

 

Pierre and Mercedes met while studying the WSET Level 3 Wine  Award together and when they passed, could think of no better way to spend their evenings than having wine chat with like minded people living in or visiting the Hunter.

 

This is their website. 

Stay n' Sip is their baby. 

And they look forward to you being their guest.
