Private wine tasting with friends who are club members. Very informative on all the different types of wines, how they're produced, aged etc. Purchased a number of cartons and became members - membership offers free delivery. Great couple of hours, very relaxed atmosphere.

Huge cellar with lots of gifts for sale. We had a friendly host and enjoyed their white wines. McGuigan have a fast price range from some tasty cheaper wines to more expensive. We also visited the Hunter Valley Cheese factory next door.

We can not recommend this cellar door. The attendants gave us distracted attention and didn’t put in the same effort that we found at the majority of cellar doors over our 4 days of tastings in the region.

Went with friends for a private wine tasting at Mcguigans today, talk about delicious. The wines we tried were amazingly good especially loved the personal reserve Chardonnay. The guy who looked after us, Gav was great explained everything but there was no pressure to buy, regardless we left with 6 cases, whoops!

Went there today for a wine tasting and it was delicious. We were served by Gavin who had extensive wine knowledge and made some great suggestions as some of us liked different styles. The winery has an extensive wine list and the personal reserve chardonnay and shiraz were my favourites. The sticky was amazing and matched superbly with the blue... More

We only drink McGuigan "Black" at home so went to the winery for fun and to try out their advertised medal winning white. The service was personal (but not terribly informative) at first but then a tourist bus arrived and personal service went out the door and it simply became a wine selling factory - good for the boss but...

This was probably the must see on our list only because it was one of the bigger wineries and we were a group of 12. We were treated to a private testing with Margo.

Stopped in at the Winery and did a wine tasting. I loved The Cellar Select Autumn Semillon and bought a bottle to bring home. Nice winery with some really great tasting wines. Its definitely worth the beautiful drive from Sydney and the views are lovely and so picturesque.
