Such a hidden treasure of the Hunter Valley. Brilliant wines and brilliant service. The true taste of the Hunter and a must experience venue if you visit the Hunter Valley. Whites based on the tradition of the Hunter and reds which really reflect the Hunter Valley’s strength as a wine region! Five star winery with five star wines and service!

We are back in Oz after a 3 year absence and back in Hunter Valley after a 10 year absence and came to Capercaillie because my Dad always rated the Ghillie Shiraz as a favourite of his. We decided to opt for the $5 tasting and we were not disappointed as the wines and the sommelier service and explanations of each wines tasted, were all excellent. The Semillon and Verdelho were a particular favourite with my wife both being fruity yet crisp and flavoursome and my favourite was the NV Chambourcin. We bought multiples bottles of each and would recommend Capercaille to any visitor to the Hunter Valley. 5 stars.

My family first experienced the Capercaillie Gewurztraminer yesterday afternoon at lunch at The Cellar restaurant Pokolbin and had to find this place. Don’t miss it - their wines are gorgeous- and unassuming Pat is the perfect host - explains the wines beautifully then lets you just relax and think about which ones you truly love. We will definitely be putting this beautiful winery on our favourites list for the Hunter Valley.

Great wines, fantastic staff and Pat was excellent. The chardonnay is exquisite, the semmilon is just as good and the verdelho is also recommended.

Our first visit and we will go again. Really friendly staff, nice set up and great wines (think we left with 15 bottles!).

By far our favorite winery. Excellent set up for tasting. Each person is sat in front of a place mat with glass spots to let you know what you’re drinking so you get to taste a bit of all they had to offer. Free to taste. Loved the set up and bought heaps of wine.

Friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable staff. A great selection of whites, reds, rose and sparkling on tasting - cost $5. Highly recommended when visiting the Hunter.

Tip, given there are capacity constraints these days (due to Covid-19), I’d recommend calling ahead to book - particularly if you’re getting into the busier holiday period.

We recently visited Capercaillie Winery as part of our wine tour.

Tina was an exceptional host (15/10 for her service). It is obvious that she loves her job and is passionate about wine. She was really friendly, funny and knowledgeable.

To be honest, the wines weren't the most flavourful in my opinion. They weren't bad (far from the worst wines I have tasted) but they had quite a mild flavour. We did end up purchasing a bottle of Moscato though as it wasn't super sweet and tasted refreshing - it will be perfect on a warm summer afternoon.

There was the standard $5 tasting fee per person that was waived when purchasing a bottle.

A short walk from the back of the Crowne Plaza Hotel. We tasted 8 great wines, and Tina our host was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Tastings are free, but wine purchases are relatively expensive. We enjoyed our visit.

Our group of 10 had the pleasure of having a private tasting with Tina and she was a great host and she gave us our highlight of the day when her sister walked out with a ukulele and they both sang happy birthday to my wife followed by an amazing rendition of Girls just want to have fun.
Really nice wines as well as some cheese and biscuits to go with the tasting.
