We had a wine and food tasting here and really enjoyed ourselves. The young man conducting the wine tasting was entertaining and informative and the wine was great. I learned a few new things too. We then tasted a variety of oils, olives, jams, pickles, sauces etc armed with a bag of bread. Almost a meal in itself. Well worth... More

We did the wine and gourmet food tasting at Pokolbin Estate and it was one of the best wine tastings we did in the Hunter Valley(and we did a few!). Graham had a lot of knowledge about the wine and made the tasting experience interesting and fun with his jokes and tips. The wines were pretty spectacular, we came back... More

A friend and I visited this winery on the recommendation from another winery. The wines were the best I think either of us had ever tasted! The marketing manager Daniel talked us through every wine and was extremely knowledgeable. We bought every wine we tasted!! Such a fantastic experience here.

A place well worth a visit. It has a lot of heritage/ history to it and they have recovered extremely well after their fire. It is fresh and clean, boutique in nature and we were provided a great experience by the manager on the estate wines/ tasting. Very informative, and good wines, not found in the general stores!

Wow!!! Reading the previous review about the groupon offer. I feel compelled to give my review. Purely as I & my partner found both the olive/duka tasting along with the wines there was absolutely nothing wrong with the service we encountered. Daniel was extremely knowledgeable & had a sense of pride not only about the wines but of the building... More

We had a wonderful time except for this winery. The gourmet food experience was to be given a plastic bag of bread cubes and walk around a shop.... More

Cellar door host was very knowledgeable and worked hard to find something we liked. DH bought a Shiraz Tempranillo which was a blend he had never tried before.
