About
Gemelli Estate is a small boutique vineyard, on picturesque Palmers Lane in Pokolbin. Here we grow the Chardonnay, Merlot and Muscat Grape and centre most of the wines we make around these three varieties. We welcome you to come along and taste our wines and hear our story. On a weekend, you will find picnic blankets over the lawn, where you can indulge in a cheese platter and bottle of wine. You may like to stay a little longer and rent out our 2 bedroom cottage for a weekend. We have a beautiful art gallery upstairs and also conduct a very popular High Tea once a month. Gemelli Estate is our passion and our home and we welcome you to come and enjoy our little patch of the Hunter Valley when you next visit.

Great visit
Jul. 2020 • Friends
We 6 dropped into Gemelli Estate Wines yesterday as our last winery for the day on our tour. Our host was extremely helpful and passionate about their wines that we enjoyed tasting upstairs in the loft area, the Sauvignon Blanc was outstanding. Thank you to the lady host at Gemelli Estate Wines, I apologise I’m not good with names, we enjoyed our visit and look forward to seeing you again.

Lovely Wine, Bad Host
Nov. 2018 • Friends
We were told the man that runs this winery is an absolute gem and quite a character so we were sorely disappointed when the lady serving us acted as though it was an imposition is being there. No info given on the wine or winery, no conversation and barely a welcome.
There is a very sweet gallery upstairs that we escaped from her to and loved the little gifts.
Will however go back if the man is there (fingers crossed!)

I'm sorry to hear of your experience at Gemelli. I have taken my time to write this review as it is hard to hear this as the owner and lady that served you. There is always 2 sides to every story (review) but as they say the customer is always right and so I hope you will come back another time and get the experience you were hoping for. Kind Regards Rebecca, Michael and Warren

A must stop for wine tasting Hidden Gem
Aug. 2018 • Couples
We had the pleasure of meeting Warren the “Mad Scientist” of this amazing winery. They opened 7 years ago from another winemaker. If you are looking for something different than every other winery, this is a must do! Warren has changed what wine is—and does it on his own terms! Would you like a sparkling Chardonnay or a sparkling Merlot? How about a Moscato that is perfectly balanced not to sweet and flavorful? I have never been to a winery where I’ve enjoyed every single tasting! Perfection! I will truly miss not living close to this place and seeing them flourish!

Thanks Caliwen for taking the time to review our property. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit, got to enjoy the passion that my Dad - Warren shares with our guests and most of all that you enjoyed our wines. It sounds like you may be moving away, but we do hope if you have a chance to visit the Hunter again you pop in to try anything new we've created. Kind Regards Rebecca, Michael and Warren

Cute little winery with kids play things. Also has a cute gallery upstairs. Wines were ok, but atmosphere made the experience a little different

Dull and dissatisfying
May 2017 • Couples
I will never go back here. It was a Monday when we visited but it was obvious the one staff member attending us couldn't be bothered to serve anyone.
We were offered no information or recommendations on wines. There was no friendly welcome or conversation. You walk in stand at the bar and drink the tastings of your choice. There is no atmosphere.

A small winery with every wine I tasted top quality.
Apr. 2017
I have driven by this road many times but when a friend told me to go there I would love their wine, they were correct. Every sip has quality to it, reds or whites. The gardens are lovely and children friendly which is always good to know. Also art to look at and you can grab something to eat. I will return and I suggest if you haven't been go. Service fantastic as the people doing the tasting for you are the owners so they know their wines!

Wonderful little winery on Palmer's Lane. The owner was very nice and the spot offered other amenities such as housewares and art. We enjoyed chatting with the owner during our tasting and learning a bit about her passion behind the label. Would suggest picking up a bottle of their Muscato, a nice refreshing drink under the Australian sun.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us Cosmo_Traveler_CDN. We are so glad you enjoyed your tasting. I hope you enjoyed your Moscato and it helped you to cool down in the evening after the hot afternoon you experienced - it certainly is a refreshing drink for our Australian summer. We hope to see you again if you ever get a chance to come back to the Hunter. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Kind Regards Rebecca

A little Gem in Palmers Lane
Jan. 2017 • Couples
My wife and I stopped in to check out a small winery I had not heard about, we thoroughly enjoyed the wines on offer and they have some very good sparkling wines. They have some art but I think they need more artists and differing styles of art to attract art lovers

The owner, Rebecca, was our host and she was fantastic. We tasted a number of wines and were provided with a history of each. The tasting room was very comfortable and private.
