“Worst Winery in the Hunter Valley”
Review of Marsh Estate

Marsh Estate
Ranked #89 of 119 things to do in Pokolbin
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Marsh Estate will now forever in my mind be the winery with the worst customer service of any wine region in Australia.

I have been to hundreds of wineries across the country but have never had an experience like this one. We parked up and went to the tasting room, (knowing you can only purchase a dozen bottles per transaction) we were rudely greeted by a badly dressed hipster with an attitude problem. Before we even sat down we were asked very rudely "are you even going to buy a dozen wines today?". Our reply was "Well that depends on the quality of the wine and whether it is to our liking". Apparently that was not good enough and we were informed the tasting would be pointless in his eyes.

So apparently you have to commit to an expensive purchase of 12 bottles well before you even are allowed sit down and taste the local wines. We promptly left and spent our money at better establishments.

Truly an unpleasant experience.

Spent the weekend at Marsh estate with 7 girls for my Hen's weekend. Spent the Friday afternoon sitting outside eating wine and cheese staring at the mountains at sunset and then indoors where the fireplace was all set up ready to go!

PROS
Beds were amazing! Soft and comfortable
Great fire place
Quiet secure location
Beautiful house and kitchen

CONS
Not enough hot water for all 7ppl to shower each morning
Came home to find an army of bull ants in the lower bathroom/toilet
No laundry/washing machine
People were being shown around the property and peering into the kitchen as we were getting ready to leave.....awkward....

Over all it was a great place to stay for such a large number of guests.
