Visited with friends and had a lovely tasting courtesy of Richard! We had brought a picnic, and had a couple of cold bottles to accompany it!! The guys even loaned us some glasses to use with it. Not too busy - but recommend the premium fizz! No carbonation there!!

Not the usual vineyard experience but want to say that the show is impressive at Bimbadgen. We saw Blondie and Cindy Lauper and the atmosphere and service was great. My only complaint for people who attend is to avoid getting a taxi home. It is a rural area of the Hunter Valley so only 3-4 taxis serviced the everlong queue... More

The view is beautiful. The service was great! Shout out to John, who not only served my friends wine, but also recommended other places visit in Hunter Valley, AND also helped me tape my green P's to my car because I was down to the last pair :) 10/10 for customer service

Good range of classic Hunter Valley wines as well as some unusual Italian varieties. Fortified Verdhelo was phenomenal. Small fee for tasting which is waived if you buy something. Interesting to have the cellar door fully incorporated in the winery.

Don't miss this place which is impressive as soon as you start up the driveway. The grounds are spectacular with sensational views. The fee is $5 and this refundable on purchasing any wines. We were greeted by Ben and he was fun and chirpy which really made you feel comfortable and happy. He was very helpful and I ended up... More

Okay, so not your typical visit to a winery, but the organisation, food and drink at this festival concert (B52's and Simple Minds) was excellent

Started strong with a sparkling Semillon and finished with a bold red. I enjoyed the Semilion and bought a dozen + 6 on their deal of the month $199. The light summer red was delicious. Careful how you ask for a beer, or water, the wine buffs do not appreciate being mistaken for the waiters and will let you know... More

We enjoyed visiting Bimbadgen, the staff were friendly and made the visit quite enjoyable with their knowledge of the area and wines. Great to wonder out the back and grab a coffee and enjoy the views.
