This venue is only one of a few in the area that does free wine tastings.

Our male server was great and provided a great explanation and was very passionate about the different wines.

There was a list provided of which we could select around 8 different wines to taste.

The females in our group bought several bottles of the sweet desert wines which they enjoyed.

Next door on the same property is the fantastic Deck Restaurant which is a must visit. It located on the lake with lovely views and great food tapas style.

Quick stop after lovely lunch next door. Very friendly and knowledgeable Maitland local behind the bar. Great to chat to him about the area and reminisce about Maitland and surrounding areas. Family connections also.
He was very knowledgeable about the wines also!

We visited hunter valley as a group of 11 and this was by far everyone’s favourite winery!
The views were stunning, all the wines beautiful and our host (Luke) was very informative and could answer all our questions.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone coming out to visit.

Hadn't been to Gartelmann for years...it has changed hands and we didn't see any magpies but were told it was too early in the day. The tasting room has been extended at the back and frankly looked more able to cater for groups rather than just the 2 of us. Luke made us very welcome and obviously knew his wines. The Benjamin Semillon was nice although my wife preferred a very good Verdelho, and there was a good Chardonnay too. It's good to see the re-emergence of this variety since I can't be doing with Pinot Gris. The WIlhelm Shiraz I remember of old...this vintage had plenty of tannin but was fruit driven and would mature well. Recommended to book a visit at a quiet time midweek.

Hi Geoffrey, Thanks for coming back, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your experience and also the new vintages of some old favourites. I will pass on your kind words to Luke, he is new to Gartelmann but has quickly become a valued part of the team. Hope to see you again in the Cellar Door soon. Cheers, Jim S.

Had a lovely wine tasting experience, our host was Chanel and she was fantastic! So friendly and knowledgeable she really made the experience so pleasant!
The property was great, my daughter loved patting the ponies and seeing peppa and George!

We all loved the muscat! (As Chanel put it, 'Christmas in a bottle')

While my wife enjoys the muscat, and my friends weighed up the pros and cons of the white, I was happy to sip on the spicy laden Shiraz and Cabernets. A historic family run operation. A return visit guarantee

This was our first stop on a winery tour organized by the nearby Crowne Plaza hotel and it was a good start because their logo is a magpie and we have fed magpies for at least 15 years so obviously we like them. The physical location is the most impressive of the three wineries plus distillery we visited that afternoon. Jim was our host and he was both knowledgeable and entertaining. We purchased 2 wines glasses as souvenirs plus a bottle of Moscato (my partner's favorite) although I though their Pinot Gris was very good as well.

We recently visited Gartelmann Wines as part of our wine tour.

The wines were delicious and we really enjoyed all of them, particularly the Stephanie Pinot Gris. The view from the deck is lovely as it overlooks the pond and cafe and I would definitely recommend a visit.

The man who guided our tasting didn't offer much information about the wines. He just gave us a list, asked what we wanted to taste and then brought it out. He then went away for a few minutes, came back and asked what we wanted to taste next. Don't get me wrong, he was friendly and funny and it wasn't a bad experience but he just didn't offer much more than pouring the wine and asking what we wanted to taste next.
