Winery had a relaxed, quaint atmosphere. We were here at lunch time so it was very quiet but the staff were really nice here and I would have been quiet happy to stay here all day. There were some tables outside under the trees which were lovely to sit at. The wine was good too.

I just love the serene atmosphere of this winery. Owned and operated by the Tinkler family members. If you're there at the right time the produce is outstanding. We found the Tinklers very helpful when we wanted to know about other places to visit and enjoy. No pretence, just relax and taste the wine. We have been before and will... More

Tinklers came with a recommendation from a lady at another winery we visited and I am glad it was as we might not have had the fortune of coming here. We were served by the wife of the winemaker and although she admitted her knowledge wasn't the best, we had a great time chatting and tasting with her. We really... More

Here we have a family-run winery offering quality wines at reasonable prices. The staff were welcoming, friendly and informative and the rustic cellar room with its wide timber tasting bar is a wonderful place to spend time sipping the wines on offer. Given the range of tastes and wine experience in our party, it was pleasing that there is a... More

Tinklers is very much a family concern with a tiny rustic cellar door. They produce excellent examples of all Hunter varieties & represent very good value.Their Poppys vineyard Chardonnay is one of the best in the valley. I often order by phone & have wine sent to my postal address. Mambers rates are really good.

We visited Usher Tinkler Cellar & Salumi on a lazy Sunday afternoon. What a treat! Quality wines by local winemakers Usher & Ebony, served with a smile by cheery & knowledgeable Matt. A huge platter of decadent cheeses, cured meats, fresh honeycomb and handmade pickled veg. Scenic views across rolling fields of vineyards, from a beautifully converted old church. Wanted... More
