All of the photos from 2019 Lovedale Long Lunch in the Hunter Valley

PLENTY of punters turned out for day one of this year's Lovedale Long Lunch.

While the country's politicians were eagerly awaiting results from the polling booths, it was a very different party at the Hunter's vineyards.

Seven wineries opened their doors for the much-loved event including Emma's Cottage, Allandale, Gartelmann, Saltire, Sandalyn, Tatler and Wandin.

The annual two-day extravaganza runs again Sunday. Check out all of the photos from day one in the gallery above.
