    Wine tasting.
    Great wine tasting morning. Anne was really informative and welcoming.Beautiful location. Beautiful wines with great explanation of the wines from Anne ,about the family business. We bought some bottles and really enjoyed them ,while on holiday. We were part of Jimmy Henry's Gourmet getaway tours. ( He was great too!) Such a shame they don't export to UK!
    We are so glad you had such a great experience! Anne truly is amazing and I will pass your comments onto her. unfortunately we cant ship to the UK without expensive shipping fees maybe one day we will get our wines over there.

    Friendly winery with great wines
    We visited Ernest Hill on a winery tour and enjoyed our visit and wines so much we went back for another tasting. Our host, Lesley, was excellent. She had excellent local knowledge and she was also very knowledgeable about wine. Of the handful of wineries we visited in Hunter Valley this was our favourite for its welcome, ambience and wines. It has a small, friendly winery feel, which we enjoy.
    Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience! Lesley is incredible and ill pass your comments on to her.

    Amazing views, Great Host (Hamish), wonderful wine tastings, wonderful people.
    The views were amazing, our host Hamish was also amazing! We learnt a lot about wines and enjoyed drinking them. We will be back again and can't recommend this vineyard enough to anyone. Great people, great wine, great atmosphere.
    Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your tasting and Hamish's company. We look forward to your next visit.

    A wine tasting tour to remember!
    We started our Hunter Valley wine tour here and had a great introduction to some of the nicest wines in the region. Our guide, Lesley, was very knowledgeable and took us through some of the wines being produced at the vineyard and gave us plenty of choices to purchase. We even got to see a few kangaroos that were taking cover from the beautiful weather.
    Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience! Lesley is amazing and we will pass your review onto her.

    Big bucks wine tasting
    Steph was amazing! She gave a lot of insight into the wine making process and very knowledgeable, but explained things in a simple way that anyone could understand. And she kept things fun and relaxed for the group on our tour still getting to know each other as it was our first winery of the day. The wine was excellent as well
    Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience! Steph is incredible and we will pass your review onto her.

    Thank you Ross..!!
    So its Australia Day 2024, my brother is over for his Birthday and it happens to be his 50th, my Birthday was the day before but as I was born in the UK (in the evening which would've been Australia Day in Oz) its still my birthday.. It was a 40 degree day and we went to see Ross as our last stop and a winery we haven't visited, ever.. What a lovely surprise, Ross is a genuine character, we had lots of fun and most importantly we see why James Halliday highly rates their wines. The Hunter has become very commercial over the years and hugely expensive, spending time with lesser known wineries is a must so I highly encourage you to visit this little gem ASAP.
    Thank you for your incredible review. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience! We hope you had the best Birthday!!! Ross is one of the best I will pass your review onto him.

Absolutely delicious wines and very reasonable! I wish we weren’t flying out in the morning or we would have taken a few bottles with us. Beautiful setting, too.

I love the explanation of both wines and history of the vineyard by Lesley. I love the Luna and Moondance most. They must be great on a hot day with cheesecake.
