Description:

"Nothing is great unless it is good" is the mission statement...

"Nothing is great unless it is good" is the mission statement that has guided Tyrrell's Wines for over 150 years; and since Edward Tyrrell established the winery in 1858, we have continued to produce premium wine from what are now some of the oldest vineyards in the world.

 

Tyrrell's is one of Australia's oldest family owned wineries. We produce some of the country's most renowned wines, including the iconic Vat 1 Semillon, and since 1971 our wines have been awarded over 5,500 trophies and medals. Tyrrell's Wines is a proud member of Australia's First Families of Wine and along with our original, historic vineyard in Hunter Valley, we have expanded into other premium Australian wine regions like Heathcote, VIC and the Limestone Coast, SA.

 

Wine Tastings and Winery Tours

 

Visit Tyrrell's Wines' historic cellar door and vineyards in the Hunter Valley and immerse yourself in over 150 years of award winning winemaking tradition.

Our guide at Tyrrells was an expert on winemaking and the history of wine in the area. He was very informative and knowledgeable, and made the talk very interesting. The tour of the winery was good too, with lots of information on what we were seeing. The wines themselves that we tasted were very nice, and we were offered the... More

Had a great hour here, tasting some nice wines, learning a lot about the different wines, and soils the grapes are grown in. Highly recommend it if you are in the area.

From the outset let me say that I have visited on more than one occasion and have had good experiences in the past. However my last visit has soured my impression of Tyrrell's and I am sad to say we won't be back. Whenever we have family and friends visiting us from the UK, we always take them to Tyrrell's...

Tyrrell's is one of the oldest wineries in the Hunter. They have plenty of space for groups to visit and taste their wines. Also provide a brief tour of the winery. We enjoyed a brief walk amongst the grapevines.

The Gentleman serving me on my last visit was outstanding. He was generous, kind, witty, funny and made buying Tyrrells wines fun and interesting. I'm not a connoisseur of wines and needed a helping hand. I was buying a couple of really nice wines to bring back to the UK for my husband and his Father (a 70th birthday pres)... More

One of the points in my agenda on visiting Hunter Valley as Tyrrell's is quite well known brand in Australia an not only. My final impression: big disappointment, to be honest. The place looks good with all these old buildings, winemaking facilities and dozens of barrels and there are also impressive genealogical tree of family, presented on the wall, however... More

After a succession of lovely but somewhat samey wineries in terms of their presentation, Tyrrell's comes as a breath of fresh air for its timber and dirt floors! Friendly staff and great wines (the verdelho is a classic in our house) - and keep an eye out for the fascinating photographic family tree on the wall.
