This was the first stop on our wine tour in the Hunter Valley and it was really the highlight of the day. The wines were amazing and the host was very friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend this!

Had a lovely slow lunch at Wandin Estate. Location was nice . Sitting on the outdoor terrace overlooking the vineyards. As the place was not very busy, the service was excellent and the staff very friendly. Food was very good and at a reasonable price.
