We stayed at Emma's Cottage and visited the cellar door while onsite. The wines are quite tasty and worthy of a stop.

Included this vineyard on an independent wine tasting day in the Hunter Valley. Met the owners who were friendly and informative about the Lovedale vineyards. There is a small art gallery, an interesting range of jewellery and a cafe in the cellar door area.
