Wonderful spot and great customer service

Stopped on the way past after the winery we were planning to visit was closed and heading home. Turned out to be a great turn of events. The lady serving us was friendly and knowledgeable, the spot beautiful with the setting sun and the wines fantastic. Highly recommend.

Lovely quiet surroundings, friendly staff
Mar. 2021
Our group were driving in the area late on a Friday afternoon and stopped in for an impromptu wine tasting. We were the only ones there on such a lovely fine day, so we sat outside for a tasting. The wine server was so friendly and chatty, and they had 2 dogs on site who were so placid and friendly as well.
The range of wines was quite varied, of the wines we tasted I'd say of our group of 4 we enjoyed at least 2 or 3 different varieties for each of us, and we ended up leaving with 1 to 2 bottles each. I'd definitely recommend a visit to get away from the more busy sites of Pokolbin, and cheese tasting at Binnorie dairy is just down the road.

Excellent wine, Lovely and Knowledgeable staff

We recently visited Allandale Winery as part of our full day wine tour.

I believe it was Bill who guided our tasting and he was really lovely and knowledgeable about the wines. He didn't just give us a list and ask what we wanted to try, rather he asked us questions about what we usually drink and our preferences in flavour (i.e. sweet, dry, etc.). He then matched our preference to the wines that Allandale Winery offers.

The wines were delicious, the cute dogs were friendly and Bill provided a great experience for us. Would definitely recommend anyone to visit Allandale Winery.

The tasting was $5 per person but was waived if a bottle of wine was purchased. The wines were delicious and affordable.

Amazing!

We visited Allandale as our first stop on a private tour for our anniversary. Alex hosted us, and was friendly, informative and provided exceptional hospitality. Not knowing much about wine ourselves, we appreciated his wisdom and eagerness to immerse us in the activity. The venue itself is beautiful and has an industrial-chic vibe to it that really pulls you into the atmosphere of making wine while also learning about it. At the end of our night we lamented not spending more time there, we will definitely be back.

Great wine tasting
Mar. 2020
Some lovely wines and for me a surprise package was the sparkling gewurztraminer (a first I must say).
Our tasting was conducted in a friendly manner with all questions being answered politely and with patience.

Wine tastings $5 per person, taken off any wine purchases. We tasted 8 very good wines with a fantastic young hostess who was very cool and knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Fabulous wines
Nov. 2019
We visited this winery about 10 years ago and I have never forgotten the flavour of the Semillon I purchased then. It tasted just as good this time around and so did several of the other Allandale wines. We had a great chat with the gentleman there who was very informative about the wines, the area etc. We bought a dozen mixed wines and are very happy with our purchase. We will be back to this lovely winery any time we visit the Hunter Valley.

Enjoyable tasting Experience
Aug. 2019
We don't tend to travel Lovedale Road in our visits to The Hunter Valley wine region.
However, over the years we have visited the region, we have stopped at Allandale, on several occasions, for a cellar door tasting and to buy wine.
The service here is always friendly and informative regarding their wines.
Personally, the chardonnay would be my choice of the wines produced here.
Lovely views from the cellar door entrance across vineyards.

Nestled little winery

Great little find..
the Chardonnay is really nice, a subtle flavour.
The reds on the tasting were interesting!
Thanks for the experience! It was nice to visit a new place, rather than the generic ones we usually visit in our tours.
