This is a winery you must try if you're ever in hunter valley. The minute you walked in you are greated by the staff members with a warm welcome. Make sure you try the ciders here as it is known here. We didn't get a chance to try the pear cider as it was sold out which was disappointing but... More

Hello jxc89, It’s so lovely to hear that you enjoyed the apple cider. It is one of our favorites too!! Thank you for coming by to see us over the Christmas period. When you’re in the Hunter Valley next be sure to drop in and say hi again. More

Fantastic sampling and in depth explanation of their philosophy about wine making processes. Despite the weather being extremely hot the public areas were air-conditioned and extremely well organised and clean. Best of all the wines are really well priced for the quality delivered.

I am not sure if it's because we were arriving late in the day, but it felt as though we were completely unwanted in this establishment - note, there were no other visitors at this time. Staff seemed disinterested and almost annoyed to have to discuss wines with us through our tasting. We had split - my travelling partner preferring... More

We were delighted when our four-legged friend was invited inside to get cuddles while we tasted wine. We loved it; and he loved it! And the wine was excellent too! We'll (all) be back next year!

I rate this vineyard highly it is poorly known but offers a good range of wines and ciders. Customer service is well above average for the valley.

Quick stop on our way through. Back tonight for EXP. Nice wines, purchased a few. More like nice hotel reception than funky cellar door tasting. Cheese and crackers would be a nice accompaniment. More interested in chatting to husbands than us!!!

Visited with a Japanese couple from overseas who were in Hunter Valley for the first time. Booked a wine tour and James was the perfect host, explaining his thoughts about the art of making wine and the minimal intervention approach they have at Oakvale. It was a very educational look at winemaking, and we enjoyed the samples at the winery... More

Love, love, love this place! Since discovering it on one of my visits last year, I have gone back several times and taken international friends there. Their Bellini and Ciders are delicious, actually... all of their wine is delightfull. I am particularly a fan of their reserve Pinot Noir.
