Located in the heart of Pokolbin (next door to Roche Estate and opposite Brokenwood), Wine House Hunter Valley is possibly the most idyllic and relaxing way to experience the best of the Hunter vineyards – without going anywhere else! And we’re not the only ones to think so with Wine House
being recently awarded 'Best Tasting Experience' by Gourmet Traveller WINE Magazine 2019 Cellar Door of the Year Awards.
Visitors can start their tasting experience at the Tasting Bar and be guided through an amazing selection of over 30 wines from some of the Hunter Valley's most iconic winemakers such as Silkman, Little Wine Co, Thomas Wines, David Hook and Hart & Hunter. With five award-winning winemakers in the Valley all under one roof, this is your must-do tasting experience.
Then stroll through to the recently refurbished Wine Lounge, which offers nearly 40 wines available by the glass and an incredible range from across the Hunter Valley and further afield. Enjoy a themed flight of wines alongside some culinary pairings or create your own wine experience with state of the art Enomatic machines.
Enomatic was born in 2002 from the happy intuition of two Tuscan entrepreneurs, who - after years of experimentation and market analysis - decided to industrialise an innovative system for preserving and serving wine by the glass. It’s the kind of machine we wish we all had in our lounge rooms and we guarantee that you’ll want one too after trying it! Simply grab yourself a glass and sample your way through the best wines from all over the Hunter Valley, completely at your leisure.
Alternatively, simply enjoy a glass of wine on the patio overlooking the lake and select from the fresh and delicious Wine House Kitchen menu.
Each June the Winehouse celebrates Hunter Valley Wine & Food Month by pitching Australia's most iconic wine, Penfolds Grange against three of our local icons. This year sees the show-stopping ‘100 point’ 2008 Grange up against 2009 Brokenwood Graveyard Shiraz, 2009 Tyrrell’s Vat 9 Shiraz and 2009 Thomas Kiss Shiraz.
These four incredible wines will be presented to attendees in Riedel glassware as a 'blind' bracket. Name the wines correctly, and you will enter in the draw to win an Icon Pack valued at over $500!
You can taste the wines any day throughout June ($96pp) or for an extra special experience, join a Saturday Masterclass hosted by one of the Hunters leading winemakers. Masterclasses will be held every Saturday throughout June at no additional cost and bookings are essential.
If you really want to go all out, then The Grand Masterclass may be just the ticket. The highlight event of the June Grange series, guests will begin the afternoon with a Grange Masterclass led by winemaker Andrew Thomas followed by a superb lunch focusing on the stellar 2017 reds.
Take the Masterclass with Andrew then, after a cleansing glass of sparkling on the terrace, you will be treated to a delicious lunch designed by chef Ros Baldwin to showcase the 2017 reds from Thomas, Silkman and Little Wine Co. There is no doubt that 2017 was one of the best vintages on record in the Hunter Valley and the Wine House team look forward to showing them off ($195pp).
