Leigh Watson has lived in the Hunter Valley his entire life. 

An enduring interest in the grapes, the land and the age-old mysteries of wine production led Leigh to work at the old Rothbury Estate for 12 years, in both sales and as a winery tour guide,  

To indulge his appreciation of fine wine and great food, Leigh joined his local Beef Steak & Burgundy Club. 

Now Leigh would like to share all this with you. 

When you book your private Hunter Tesla Tour you can expect:

  • a knowledgeable driver/guide who’ll be as involved or discrete as you wish
  • access to private cellar-doors and award-winning winemakers
  • a distinctive experience touring the vineyards in an all-electric, eco friendly Tesla X
  • exclusive tables at local restaurants or a designer hamper made to your exacting specifications


The Hunter Valley is an iconic wine region and is considered the birthplace of Australian wine. Today, it’s recognised as one of the finest wine regions in the world. 

When James Busby returned from Europe in 1832 with 20,000 vine cuttings, little did he know he was helping establish Australia’s premiere wine-growing area, now home to more cellar doors than anywhere else in Australia.

The Hunter Valley also hosts the annual Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival during the months of May and June.

With over 150 wineries producing a variety of wines, and over 50 local restaurants, including some hatted restaurants, your day can be anything you want it to be. 


Whether it’s an intimate picnic for two, soaking up the sunshine and stunning scenery or an exclusive table in a fine restaurant, we cater to your every need.

Hunter Tesla Tours can also cater to small corporate groups. What an extraordinary way to showcase your own business or reward your staff than with a private wine tour. 

If you’re like Leigh and believe world-class wines and fine foods are not just good for the palette, they’re essential for the soul, then Hunter Tesla Tours will spoil you for anything else.

It would be our pleasure to help organise your special day touring the Hunter Valley in a luxurious and spacious Tesla X, wining, dining and enjoying the finer things in life.
