    A friend and I were served by Lewis, it was a standard wine tasting. His knowledge of the wines was exemplary, he was quite engaging and we shared a few personal stories together. Due to a great experience and the quality of the wine, I became a member of the wine club that day. Thanks for a wonderful and engaging afternoon

    Harkham Wines was by far the highlight of our Hunter trip, staff are amazing, super knowledgeable but not pushy with what we ‘should’ be tasting. Love the natural wine philosophy and these are the best we have tried, ever. Certainly will be back.

    Wow - great wines, fabulous ambiance and winemaker discussion with Paddy - and a beautiful estate with views.
    Highly recommend- not just for the delicious wines of Cockfighter’s Ghost but the entire experience.
    Could have stayed all day.

    Our host was extremely informative. Asked many questions, she helped us understand a lot about the wine making process and everything to do with wine. Would highly recommend, even if you’re not a wine aficionado (I’m not). It’s indoors, which was lucky for us because it was raining. Be sure to try the Chardonnay and Moondance. Went as part of a wine tasting tour.

    Arrived early on a Monday and it was very quiet. This is a wonderful small zoo, though there was plenty to see. The animals looked healthy and well cared for and the kids loved feeding the birds and kangaroos. Highly recommended if you’re in the area.

    This is a great local winery with a very picturesque setting. We followed a good section of wines available, but equally impressive is their other products. Take the time to Try their spiced sauce range,an old family recipe, or the fresh lemonade aid.

    These days you have to book wine tastings but that at least sets out your day. We were into Tintilla first thing and Sophie made us very welcome. They produce single variety wines which has always been my preference. The 2021 semillon was young, zesty and sharp...perfect with oysters.The 2014 was more mature and aging well. Pebbles Brief Chardonnay is a more European type wine but full and rich. The Justine merlot is young, very dry with just a touch of sweetness and very forward tannins. In time it will be good. Of the 2 shiraz we tasted, the reserve was my preference...fruity and smooth with emerging tannins...a nice drop. The Patriarch shiraz will be a great wine in a few years time when it matures. Sophie was an impeccable host, the vineyard is beautiful and well worth a visit.

    Fantastic cellar door experience! Amazing service, so warm and friendly. The muscat is the best muscat I’ve ever tasted. Be sure to include this cellar door when visiting the hunter.

    This was, without a doubt, the best experience of our 3 day trip to the Hunter. Gary was an excellent and enthusiastic host to our group of 8. The wines were delicious and beautifully explained, all for free and no pressure to buy. All the staff made us feel so welcome and added to the beauty of the location. Just don’t forget to book!! Weekends are usually for members only but check anyway.
