Lovely visit with the family. Great outside area for kids and adults to play. Kellie’s service was excellent. Bought great wines from her. She also offered great recommendations of other places to go.

The girl who helped me to taste the different types of wine is really patient and explanatory about different types of wines. Besides, a plate of cheeses, biscuits and dried fruits, shows how generous they are. I doubt is there anyone who can’t buy any...More

This is probably the best wine tasting experience we had on our weekend at the Hunter. Beautiful wines matched by great views and excellent wine knowledge. One winery that we visit again and again.

Gillard is the original, very picturesque and far more intimate. Hermitage is newer and built far more for the tourist trade. Same style of tasting experience but go for Gillards......enjoy
