Great friendly service. I attended the lovedale long lunch and this winery was very relaxing with great views. Even met the owners. I would highly recommend. Great wines, and the food also a treat. Don't drive past - a must to stop in and enjoy a wine or 3 with lunch and/or afternoon tea

We were driving through the Hunter Valley and wanted to stop at a winery but there were so many to choose from but we wanted a more boutique style cellar door and were delighted to come across Gartelmann. It was the fountain that caught our eye. The sommelier provided great tastings, we have a sweet tooth it was the muscata... More

Great welcome on a really busy day. Great setting on a covered deck by the small lake. Will definitely be back next time in the Hunter Valley.

We've come all the way from Melbourne and we were not disappointed! The wine tasting was amazing, we snuck in right at the end of the day and were lucky to get the lovely Brad, who was very detailed with his explanation and entertaining at the same time! We tried about 8 different wines, most of which were really enjoyable,... More

We passed through this Cellar door on our way to lunch at The Deck Cafe next door. We tried the white wines, which were all outstanding, but, we loved the Pinot Gris, we got the lowdown on the differences between the French & Italian styles of white Pinot. Always love trying Rosè , and their Rosè was a winner. The... More

Thanks for visiting our Cellar Door and we agree, all the white wines are outstanding and the reds are pretty good too! Glad you liked the Pinot Gris and the Rose in particular - we enjoy them both too. Next time try our Chardonnay - it is also quite special. I will pass on your comments to our staff -... More

Smaller winery with an excellent restaurant as part of the place. Food was of a great standard but mid range prices. View over a pond from outside eating area with nice breeze. Can be hot outside in full sun. Wine prices around $45 for exceptional reds. Suggest booking as not open every day.

We stopped here randomly with our 2 young kids. There was a bird Avery that kept one busy and a toy box for the other! Reds here were lovely. Also ate at the deck cafe which was beautiful

I personally love white wines and I absolutely adore Gartlemanns 'Jessica', 'Veronica' & Sparkling White. Their Muscat is absolutely incredible as well. Their wine club is great value as well. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to renew it this year, but would highly recommend it to those who aren't in the local area.

Thank you for visiting again this year and we are glad you liked the wines. We think that the Veronica Rose excels if it is served very cold. Hope to welcome you back to ClubG in the near future. More

Decided to try the lastest offerings at Gartlemens as we do most years. The Petite Verdot is one of our favorites. But the whole range has something for everyone. Commendable Rose and excellent Shiraz. Service was excellent and location beautiful. Dog and children friendly.

Thank you for visiting Gartelmann again and I am glad you enjoyed the Petit Verdot and all the wines, especially the Shiraz. The 2015 Diedrich Shiraz has just gained two trophies so look out for that next year when you visit. More
