    Beautiful wines
    Pooley wine tasting was worth the visit. Staff so friendly, fun and highly knowledgeable. The wines, Chardonnay, Pinot and Riesling were all above average class. I left happily with my dozen choices.
    We're glad you enjoyed your experience with us! Thanks for your review.

    Very welcoming. Wonderful interior and delightful entertaining area outside. And of course - good wines.
    This cellar door is located on the outskirts of Richmond and you get a sense of the history of the property driving up to the car park past the lovely Georgian convict-built sandstone house. The cellar door is located in the old sandstone Coach House. There is also a bar outside with under cover and open lawn seating with a very pleasant picturesque view over the surrounding countryside. There were a range of tastings available. Two of the offerings were $10 per person for a choice from 2 sets of 4 wines (one being a Pinot Grigio, a Riesling, a Pinot Noir and a Cane Cut Riesling and the other being two Rieslings - one from each of their two vineyards, a chardonnay and a Pinot Noir). There was also a $10 cost to taste two of the more premium wines (a chardonnay and a Pinot Noir), $10 for their top of the range Pinot Noir and $5 for their Syrah. We ended up tasting several of the Rieslings, chardonnays and Pinot Noirs and all were very agreeable. Our host (Joycee?) was very friendly and informative. We will return when next in Hobart to enjoy pizza and a bottle on the lawn.

    Wine tasting experience.
    Wine tasting experience was top class. The (50+?) gentleman who served us was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He was also very encouraging of our 20 year old inexperienced wine-drinking daughter. A$15 per five tasting platter. A$30 for (meagre) cheese platter.

    A visit to Pooley's Wines is a must!
    I live and work on a vineyard/winery in NSW and was in Hobart on holidays with my sisters. We were going for a drive to Richmond and had been advised to stop at Pooley's Wines. We were welcomed so warmly by India, who told us the Pooley story and talked us through the wines in such an engaging and knowledgeable way that I offered her a job if she ever moved to NSW! She is an asset to the business ... we also loved the wines and arranged to bring some with us and ship more home.
