I highly recommend gorgeous Calvin Estate. I recently traveled from Melbourne for a girls weekend in the Hunter Valley - Calvin Estate came highly recommended and it far and away exceeded expectations! Immaculate and beautifully appointed, Calvin Estate was the perfect spot to enjoy quality time sipping wine by the fire catching up with dear friends. It also has a lovely wedding reception venue on the estate.
