Lovely small winery with a friendly welcome
Jul. 2020 • Friends
Book ahead for everything in the Hunter Valley At the moment. We got a delicious platter with the tasting and friendly service. A bonus that they donate to animal welfare groups- one of the best visits we had over 4 days in the area - doesn’t look much but worth a try.

Excellent selection of Great value wines. Informative tasting session with humorous anecdotes thrown in for free. The home made Dukkah is worth a visit too.

WONDERFUL
Jan. 2020
We're veterans (25+ years) of wine tasting and stumbled onto Lucy's run doing a U-turn and so delighted to have stumbled upon. Having learned from experience that some of the best wines (and worst) come from the most unpretentious establishments, we were thrilled that Lucy's is one of the former.
The two Verdelhos we tasted were radically different fro each other but fantastic, and the merlot was a terrific surprise. Lovely shiraz, of course but the best part was c0-owner Brad. So charming and gracious.
We bought in addition to wine to stow in suitcases some olive oil that we'll taste when back home. Bonus: Lucy's run donates monies to animal rescue.

Well, that's such a great review - thank you! You really hit the nail on the head - we're unpretentious (well we ARE in a tin shed!), but we have great wines, and as we're so small we aim to make our wines enjoyable for all; we so hope that more people appreciate that the little guys can do a really good job. Again, thank you for your terrific review, and next time you're back over our way, please drop in to see us again. Brad (and Heather, too!)

Lovely winery
Nov. 2019 • Friends
The place had been recommended so we stopped in and it was a wonderful find. The couple who run it were very friendly, not pushy and confident in their wines.

Very knowledgeable and really let you enjoy the moment and there surrounds. I love the fact that the wines are named after their rescue animals and they support pet rescue.

We had a case sent home- lovely crisp Verdelho, delicate balance.

Well worth a stop

Thank you for taking the time to tell everyone about your (positive) experience with us - that's just so great to hear! Brad and I do love our wines, so we do like talking about them, and we really don't feel the need to be pushy - it's just not in us to be like that, anyway. All we can hope for is that everyone who visits us really does enjoy our wines, and will take something away with them. And yes, we do like to have a bit of fun when naming our wines, why not! ... just wait until our 2020 wines roll out! Again, thank you for your feedback, and please come and see us again when you're back in Hunter wine country. Heather & Brad

First time
Nov. 2019 • Friends
We have been to the Hunter many times and generally go to the bigger, more popular wineries. Our wine tour recommended Lucy's Run amd she was spot on. Being animal lovers we were pleasantly surprised that they have a range of wine that they donate fund from to Pet Rescue. Their gourmet range of dukkah, zattar, balsamic glase and olive oils is outstanding. Brad and Heather are great hosts, I wish we had more time to spend at this winery. Definitely recommend this as a stop when in the Hunter.

Well how good, is that? - thank you for such a lovely review and for the generous recommendation! We ARE small, hard to find, and aren't as recognisable as the bigger cellar doors, but our winemakers do a bloody good job for us, and we do love our wines, so it's not hard for us to be enthusiastic - especially if I've had a few rosés! We hope you'll come back to see us next time you're in Hunter wine country. Cheers - Heather & Brad

Wonderful
Aug. 2019
The perfect cellar door to end a hard day of wine tasting! Our two pups were warmly welcomed as were we! Brad and Heather were great explaining their wines and we brought back a number, including the wonderful Sweet Sophie: as one of our pups shares the name we couldn't pass them up and they are delicious. We are returning in two months!

Hello, hello, hello! How remiss of us to be so late in responding ... blame it on the vino, I do! Thank you for visiting, and double thank you for bringing along your doggos - we're big fans of guests bringing in their puppers ... it makes our day! We do also love it when guests love our wine - we think it's pretty bloody good too. We reckon you must be almost out of Sweet Sophie, so please come by soon for a top-up. Again, thank you for your kind words and we really do look forward to seeing you and your furkids on your next visit to Hunter Wine Country. Cheers - Brad & Heather

The FRIENDLIEST cellar door
May 2019 • Couples
We visited Lucy’s door as 2 couples and a dog after hearing they were dog friendly. They were SO dog (and people) friendly, with an incredible passion for what they do. The husband and wife team were smiley, hilarious and so welcoming. The wines a lovely and you have to try all of the elements of the ‘spice pack’ - the balsamic in particular is to die for.

Well thank you - what a great review! We love visits from puppers and their peeps - it really brightens our day - and even if you don’t have a doggo, we still love to welcome all. Yep, we gotta agree that our wines are pretty good(!), and our oil/spices are yummo too. Come see us again soon, and thank you once more. Brad & Heather

Great People!
Apr. 2019 • Friends
I went to Lucy's Run with two of my girlfriends, and one of their little babies over the Easter long weekend and it was by far our favourite winery of the day! The staff there were so so friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Not to mention the wine is awesome and I love the way they support rescue dogs. Will definitely be back!

Passionate About Wine
Apr. 2019 • Friends
Brad and Heather are passionate about their wine, food and animals and it shows. We spent a very pleasant time in this small winery and enjoyed our visit tremendously. We ended up leaving with several wines, some balsamic and spices only the balsamic and spices made it back to Ireland. The wine was too nice and begged to be drunk.

Hi Michael - thank you for your lovely words, though it's not too hard for us to be passionate about our wines!

Next time you're back in Oz we'd love to see you in Hunter wine country. Many thanks again - Brad & Heather
