Located along McDonald's Rd, Pokolbin is the Ballabourneen Wine Company Cellar Door. Ballabourneen Wine Compnay is a small producer of an exceptional range of Hunter Valley wines. Award winning winemaker Daniel Binet is a young gun who is creating wines that will tantalise your palate. The Ballabourneen label first emerged when husband and wife Alex and Di Stuart moved to the Hunter Valley, NSW Australia over 23 years ago and planted a small block of Chardonnay, Verdelho and Shiraz. Since then the range has grown to include Sparkling Chardonnay, Semillion, Gamay Noir, Chambourcin, Cabernet Blends, Moscato and a Liqueur Shiraz. Ballabourneen (pronounced Balla-bour-neen) is a Gaelic name that refers to a town road, as close as we can work out. The original Ballabourneen vineyards were on a property close by The Old North Road of convict built fame, which when subdivided, was simply called "The uextensive wine list makes this cellar door a must when visiting the Hunter.

We came here on a wine tour with a very large group, but were still treated to a great range of wines, plus bonus chili tasting too! Friendly and helpful staff made this one of the many highlights of the day.

A brilliant place to enjoy a very informative Wine tasting with Young, Vibrant, Passionate Winemakers. Daniel and Natalie are wonderful hosts. Well worth a visit. Can't wait to see the new premises when they move.
