The Tatler Hotel opened in 1902. It was at the Tatler Hotel on the 8th of August, 1907 that J.J. Giltinan formalised Australia's first Rugby League Competition.

In it's heyday The Tatler Hotel was a favourite haunt of rugby league players, colourful racing identities, popular radio personalities and the creme of Sydney society.

For it's last 13 years the Tatler Hotel was owned and operated by the Izakidis family until it finally closed its doors in April 1986.

12 years later the Izakidis resurrected the Tatler name as a new vineyard in the Lovedale region of the Hunter Valley.

The tradition continues.....

The Tatler Cellar door looks at the majestic Brokenback Range and has a range of 13 wines available for tasting.

We came here on the recommendation of the owners of where we were staying, and we weren't disappointed. Paul looked after us, and was certainly a character! Tried some lovely wines and a few twists on the standard fare. Would definitely come back.

We found Tatlers a year ago and visited again this weekend just to see if Paul was still there....and he was. The wines are great but made so much better by Paul's jokes and stories. Wine tasting done just the same way that wine should be enjoyed.

Rude, obnoxious, offensive, are just some of the words I would use to describe the host of Tatler Wines at Lovedale. In a very poor display of bad taste and bad manners towards customers, after our group had visited 4 wineries that day, we made the very unfortunate decision to stop by for a tasting at Tatler Wines, but sadly,...

Walked into Tatler's, to be greeted by our host, Paul. He was awesome & made us feel extremely welcome. He made sure we had an amazing tasting session, while entertaining us the whole time. The wine was beautiful and was accompanied by some breads along with 3 different dipping sauces. Following the tasting, we ordered some of the lovely tapas.... More

We went to this winery on the recommendation of another down the road (Allendale). We met Wayne, the new manager (first day). He could not have been more helpful including giving us some tourist ideas for our drive back to our flight from Newcastle. The wines were very high quality and I look forward to enjoying them when they arrive.

First stop ever in the hunter with our friends who are regulars. Paul- legend. Great couple of hours spent sampling, laughing and talking. Thankyou!

I'm sure it's lovely outside of Lovedale Long Lunch Saturday, however we spent 40+ minutes lining up for dessert and didn't bother with the main meal queue as it was too crazy. Poorly staffed, managed and executed event. Would visit outside of the May event but never again on that weekend.
