About
For nearly thirty years Pepper Tree has been a beacon for quality wine in the heart of Hunter wine country. Founded in 1991 it continues to flourish as one of the stalwart wine companies of the region. The Pepper Tree Cellar Door provides a picturesque and quintessential Hunter Valley wine experience Pepper Tree started with a focus on grapes from the Hunter Valley but today the roots run deep for owner John Davis with vineyard sites in four premium wine growing regions across Australia. Almost three decades on, Pepper Tree is making consistently great wines, drawing on these vineyards situated in the Hunter and Orange in NSW to prized patches of soil in Coonawarra and Wrattonbully in South Australia. You could say it’s the best of four worlds. Our Commitment to the four regions in which John Davis has invested so much of his time and expertise in are the driving force behind all we do. The Hunter Valley represents us but the roots of the tree spread through all four regions.

    Excellent, warm and welcoming
    We had an amazing experience for our wine tasting. Shaz was excellent talking us through all the wines, different grapes and also giving some other recommendations for the rest of our trip. I left with sheets of recommendations and of course a bag full of wine and goodies. I’d highly recommend this place for its welcome and friendliness, probably the best tasting that we did in the few days we were at Hunter Valley.
    Hi Greyo, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback! We're so glad your tasting experience with Shaz was enjoyable. We will be sure to pass on this feedback. We hope you're enjoying your wines, and we hope you'll visit us next time you're in the Hunter Valley. Thanks again!

    A first rate wine tasting experience
    A first rate wine tasting experience. We rolled up at 5pm on 31st August and the young lady who was running things could not have been more charming. We sampled many wines and browsed their other products ending up buying a very individual decanter. I don't know how many wines we were given to try but they were generous in the number of offerings and in the individual quantities. Overall a lovely experience Would I go there again? Yes mist definitely

    Tailored service. Excellent Shiraz .
    Attended to by Shaz who customised the tasting to preference even though she was busy serving other groups. Was very patient and knowledgeable and gave thoughtful advice. Loved their premium Shiraz and got two bottles even tho I usually prefer cab sav. Really enjoyed the visit !

    Lovely spot.
    We popped in here for a glass of wine. I can only handle one tasting a day before they seem to run together. We had a lovely glass of wine outside The estate is intimate and the setting is lovely. There is accommodation and an award winning restaurant in the property. Worth a visit.

We had a wine tasting with my husband & parents. It was really lovely and we throughly enjoyed it. The lady who served us was a straight shooter and had a funny personality. She was very knowledgeable with the wines & very friendly.
We picked our favourite wine and purchase 6 bottles each. Loved the verdelho which is a limited edition and sadly unable to buy it now. The grounds are stunning and well maintained. Beautiful green gardens and outdoor setting for photos. Definitely recommend
