Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely wine tasting experience, learned lots! We visited here as a part of the "Day Trip with Chef-led Hunter Valley Gourmet Food & Wine" tour booked through Viator - Jimmy was our guide and chef, though when you get to the wineries like here at Pokolbin, the folks from the winery explain the specifics and tell you stories about the winery itself. Highly recommend stopping at Pokolbin, on your own, or with Chef Jimmy!

Jacob took us through 6 of Pokolbin Estate wines and was very knowledgeable. He was passionate about the wines on offer. We went to other cellar doors and rated the quality of Pokolbin Estate wines above more expensive wines. Became Pokolbin Estate members and will definitely be purchasing more of their delicious wines in the near future.

It was a good experience but we are very against animal abuse. we saw that the winery provides the service of horse back riding! It is a shame that in these times it continues to happen even though people think that this is good or cute

Had a wonderful time here with my friends on a wine tour. Mel was amazing, taking her time to explain the wines and making us all feel welcome, even wine newbies like me. I am looking forward for coming back here.

Have to say all wines were unique and magnificent.
The service was outstanding and the olives, especially as Greeks, we were astonished.

Signed up for the membership, bought 6 wines and all their products. Must go to!

Mel let us take or time with the wine tasting. The wines were set up for us on the wine tasting version of a paddle , with descriptions and , as an added bonus, chocolate pieces that complimented the wine .

It was beautifully organised and the best tasting of the day .
