I visit this vineyard often with visitors and friends. The location is picture perfect with the extensive rural view of the vineyard and the Brokenback Mountain in the background. The staff are particularly knowledgable about all their product and without being pressured my guests always buy a selection of wines. From the gutsy shiraz to the sparkling maiden rose or... More

Perfect place to taste the best that the Hunter Valley can offer. They don't sell or buy fruit so everything starts on the vines that spread across the hillside that dominates your view from the covered balcony. Stephen and Tracey have a passion for the region, their wine and people. Highly recommend a visit ... they have a wine for... More

Great wines, but the key for me was the knowledge and infectious enthusiasm of the staff. We were there for a tasting and Denise really took us through various wines, the history of the winery, the grape varieties, why some grow better than others, which wines to drink today and which will improve with age. It really was an education... More

We visited this winery on the recommendation of a friend because they make a lovely Chambourson. They do.😊 They have so many lovely wines that we became members. Which is great because it means we get a discount on our purchases.

I have visited Ivanhoe winery many times but have always forgot to leave a review. You will not find a better winery in the Hunter! It's in a beautiful building with panoramic views of the vineyards and surrounding hills. There is a picturesque pond with roaming ducks and geese. But now to the wine! The view is amazing but the...

The view and surrounds of this winery were absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend the visit here. Some of the wine we sampled here was the best and the staff really topped the visit off. We will definitely be coming back here when we are in the region.

We sat on the verandah & had our wine tasting overlooking the vineyard. Our host was the young son of the owners but he really knew his stuff, lots of information about how to taste the wines. Amazing setting.

We tried a selection of reds here - as Ivanhoe seem to promote their reds as being some of the best in the region. We thought they were pretty good - specifically the Shiraz Cab. The Chambourcin was different and quite nice also. The Dark Horse Premium Shiraz didn't quite live up to its price tag so we were happy... More

Thank you for your review. Our team are really pleased that you enjoyed our wines. The Ivanhoe property has been known for producing lovely reds for over 50 years. The rich volcanic soil and steep slopes of the vineyard help. I hope you enjooy the Shiraz Cabernet and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers, Tracy Drayton More
