Overview

Like our wines we pride ourselves in being different.Established in 1990, Saddler's Creek is a boutique wine company situated in Pokolbin in the heart of the Hunter Valley, that specialises in producing premium and super premium wines from the grapes of some Australia's premium wine regions. Saddler's Creek is very different. Saddler's Creek wines are very different.Each and every day, we at Saddlers strive to create a point of difference with our wines, and the way we present them to an enthusiastic market place.Saddler's wines are distinctly different than the vast majority of wine product available to wine lovers. Our wines are made to a relatively simple principle, that is, to produce intense lush flavour and yet have the ability to be enjoyed with the finest of foods. We believe that fine wine has to enhance the flavour of any accompanying food. After all, wine is the only alcohol made for the sole purpose of being enjoyed with food. The only real wine is good 'food wine'.Our wines are made from the grapes of some of Australia's premium wine growing regions and each one exhibits the unique regional characters of those well known regions such as, the Hunter Valley, Langhorne Creek, Mclaren Vale. The common observation by our new customers is "your wines are so flavoursome and so smooth on the palate".We are unique in the cluttered Australian wine market in that 85% of our domestic sales are directly to consumers and not through the confusing retail shop market place. This is a wonderful opportunity for us as winemakers, in that we have a special relationship with each of our customers and have the opportunity to listen to Australia's wine lovers and make wines they want to enjoy. This allows us to be more critical of our methods and be more introspect in our winemaking direction. This opportunity is not available to those producers who are kept at arms length from their ultimate customers. We are lucky enough to have a VIP customer group called Club Equus that has a substantial membership of very loyal and committed customers proud to be a member and have the chance to enjoy wines of this calibre.As well as a focussed direct approach to our domestic sales we are now embarking on exciting export markets that are opening up to us. If you are new to Saddlers ... we have a saying " Just Taste It "

We have been to the hunter a lot and always go to the same few wineries. At dinner last night discovered what I describe as the best wine I've had in the area. I have actually joined the wine club! Soft beautiful full bodied reds.More

It was a great, but unfortunately too short visit to winery. Managed to start the process of tasting of wine, but unfortunately to leave. But, I will be back to enjoy the wines and the story behind them!
