I visited Ivanhoe Wines on my first visit to the Hunter Valley, and I have visited on just about every trip since. Ivanhoe is very nicely positioned up on a hill, and the cellar door has a balcony overlooking the estate's vineyards. Group tasting sessions are held on the balcony, which makes for a pleasant experience. On most, if not... More

We arrived just from a visit to Nanna Kerrs organic cafe 👍 as you sit and observe the views at Ivanhoe. Just beautiful. It's was a late visit and we felt welcomed. The gentleman was pleasant and spoke well of the wines.

Ivanhoe was the first stop on our tour of the wine country. My husband and I have never had a tour before, let alone had a wine tasting so we had no idea what to expect, and to be honest we're a little intimidated when it came to all things wine. We walked in and were greeted by Ken. We... More

My wife and I had read great reviews about Ivanhoe Wines and I decided to surprise her by making a booking for a private tasting and cheese platter there on our recent visit to the Hunter Valley. It seemed like a relaxing atmosphere on arrival. Then a busy elderly hostess sat down to join us. We attempted to savour the... More

We visited this winery a couple of times already. We liked their reds so much, we became members & were pretty happy when the members lunch was on the same weekend we had booked to visit for a birthday weekend away. The lunch was nice, wines great, Mexican food not really my thing, but being there amongst the friendly staff,... More

Ivanhoe cellar door was the first vineyard we visited through 'Hunter Valley boutique Wine tours'. We were welcomed by all staff with open arms. Our wine tasting was excellent, we were taught the correct method and sequence of how to taste wine. Wine will never taste the same again ! With the information that I gathered, I believe I could...

We visited Ivanhoe as part of a brilliant All Around the Vines wine tasting tour and it was fantastic! The team were lovely and so knowledgable and the wines were wonderful. Would recommend a trip to this cellar door as part of any visit to the Hunter Valley!

Thank you for your review. Also, thanks for your continued service in the Navy, your dedication and service is appreciated. I am so pleased that you loved our Port. It's an oldie but a goodie at over 10 years old. We can also engrave the ports which makes a fine gift or souvenir. We hope to see you soon for... More

On arrival, a knowledgeable gent who grows wine grapes and is involved in making wine himself. We sat on a Balcony over looking the vineyard and tried several very nice wines, all of which were...

We visited this winery with a wine tour. The wines we tasted were very good and we were 'taught' how to taste, look for colour and smell. I found this very informative and lots of fun. The setting is beautiful. We even brought some.
