      Absolutely loved this experience, highly recommend!!
      My family, friends and I absolutely loved our experience at McCaffreys. The wine making class was fun and informative. It was great tasting, mixing, bottling & taking home the wine made by yourself! Declan was very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this experience as it’s something different to the usual wine tasting.

      All round value!
      I’ve been to many wine tastings, and this trumped the lot. You get to learn plenty, taste plenty, and walk away with your custom bottle. Great fun, and the experience is priceless. Will definitely be taking friends and family back there for round 2 and 3.

      60th Birthday Wine Making Fun!
      We came as a family to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday and try the Wine making experience - what a fabulous and interesting experience this was. Declan was so knowledgeable and patient with us, and made it all so fun! We all learnt a lot, and found it so helpful when doing our wine tastings. The wine itself was gorgeous, and we also purchased further wines. We cannot rate this experience highly enough, and would encourage everyone to experience this as it really enhances your wine tastings! Thank you Declan and your lovely team for your hospitality! 😀 Don’t forget to ask about the key!!

      Great way to spend some of your time in the Hunter
      This was the perfect way to spend a morning in the hunter region. McCaffrey’s is a scenic and boutique-feel winery and the wine making experience was really enjoyable. Declan balanced the session well in terms of time, education, the making/tasting and all with good, friendly humour. We thought the experience was great value for money and would absolutely recommend.

      Great wine and cellar door experience
      Declan and the staff are always so welcoming. We have t visited since January and he remembered us and made us feel so welcome. We had a non wine drinker along to see if we could entice her and she raved about the wine so it was great to see one of our favs through her eyes. The wine and cheese tasting is always great and the great cellar door and staff make it special Thanks we will see you again soon

      Great Cellar Door Experience
      Our group had a fabulous experience at McCaffrey's Estate. Chris had our usually 'chatty' group enthralled from the moment he started the tasting. Whatever you pay him, he's worth double as we were sorry we had to leave. The wines were fabulous too.

      Had the pleasure of spending not one hour but 2 hours at McCaffrey Estate, tasted some beautiful wines, with some complimentary cheeses. Thoroughly enjoyed the stories told by Chris our host, lots of laughs and a little bit of learning as well. Thanks Chris we enjoyed out time in your company and I’m sure we will return. We all purchased some quality wine. I particularly enjoyed the ‘Whistler’ Shiraz and the story that goes with the wine. Cheers Chris, Declan and Danielle.

    we booked this experience for my dad's birthday. It was an enjoyable experience, a special mention to Chris who was a great host and was very knowledgeable. I learnt a lot about the history and what qualities to look for when tasting wines. I also enjoyed the cheeses as well. I will highly recommend this experience for people who enjoy wine tasting and want to learn more about wine making.

    The wine and cheese tasting was not only good value for money, but Chris' explanation of the wine and the background of the wine names was very impressive. It was a wine tasting with friendly staff, a comfortable atmosphere, and delicious wines.
