Came for a private wine tasting (included in my membership price) such a great experience. Joel looked after us for the day and provided such an amazing service. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.. We loved the wine and cheese platter! We ended up spending $700 between the 4 of us due to Joel's experience with wines and the great... More

Excellent selection of reasonably priced wines, winery has won major awards in London competition, acknowledged by Janis Robinson. Their Personal Reserve Shiraz and Cabernet were expensive ($60 ea) but were much better than other reds I tasted at the $30 mark. You get what you pay for.

There are so many great wineries in the Hunter Valley, that i found this one to be underwhelming by comparison. The tasting consisted of standing at a bar while picking wine off a list. The gentleman that served us wasn't very helpful and didn't explain anything about the wine. He simply poured what we asked for. The wine was tasty... More

One of our favourite Shiraz. No fee and generous servings for wine tasting. Come early as the 12 pm wine tour fills out quickly.

You know how far Winner of International Winemaker of the year can go. Not as far as the Cellar Door on this occasion. We had a young man who was not big on customer service & therefore we did not feel the love in the wines we sampled. Thanks for the samples but you lost us on this occasion.

Been here a few times and each time made a purchase. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Just walk up to a bar and tell the staff which wines you'd like to try from the list. Got the autumn harvest and a tawny.
