About
Thomas Wines are one of the Hunter Valley's most highly regarded winemakers, nationally and internationally acclaimed for their exceptional single vineyard semillon and shiraz. "Keep it simple" is our philosophy, producing small parcels of world class, uniquely regional wines from some of the most distinguished sites in the Hunter. Each single vineyard wine showcases its unique signature and personality, and expresses a true sense of place. Kiss shiraz and Braemore semillon sit at the top of an impressive range, many of which have become modern benchmarks for the Hunter Valley. Owner and winemaker Andrew Thomas now has three decades of winemaking experience in the Hunter Valley. It's the no compromise, attention to detail approach to his winemaking that has seen him twice awarded Hunter Valley Winemaker of the Year, as well as contributing to an impressive mantle piece of wine show trophies and medals, and enviable critical acclaim.

This is a lovely and relaxed wine tasting experience with very friendly informative passionate staff . The tasting style reminds of McLaren Vale SA with its unpretentious style and excellent wines . The view from the cellar door is stunning and it is well worth a visit .

Visited this cellar door due to its close proximity to where we were staying and I am so glad we did! The Semillon and Shiraz tasting was a great introduction to the diversity of these 2 varieties. Our host was informative and demonstrated his real passion for wine. Well worth a visit!

Wines remain excellent though less on offer compared to last year (or so it seemed to us). They confirmed we QR coded in but only half the staff wore masks.

Hi Thanks for visiting & your review. We do take COVID & safety very seriously, we have a Staff member that is exempt from wearing a mask which may explain why everyone did not have one on. We look froward to your next visit, we'd suggest The Journey tasting experience if you'd like to taste the full range on your next visit. Cheers Rowena

Hat off to Andrew Thomas for an amazing wine & food pairing at Nagisa Japanese restaurant as part of Newcastle Food month. Throughly enjoyed the 1st bracket of Deja Vu, Sweetwater & The Cote but the second bracket of the 2018 & 2010 Kiss was truly special & amazing! Classic Hunter Valley winemaker & winery. Throughly recommend a visit!

Thomas wines offers one of the best wine experiences in the Hunter Valley. Specialising in the classic Hunter Valley grape varietals, Semillon and Shiraz, Andrew Thomas delivers with every single wine. Special mention to our server Al who was delightful.

Best tasting experience of our trip. Excellent staff and tasting enhanced by them showing us the soil types that the wines offered for tasting were grown from. Wines we tasted were excellent overall. We also got to taste a 2002 wine. We are definitely planning on coming again next trip to the Hunter.

Visited Thomas wines early one morning and tried our luck as a walk-in. Staff were more than accommodating and very friendly. Great place to compare 2 styles of what the hunter is known for, Sémillon and shiraz. We just did the standard 8 tastings (4 sem and 4 shiraz). Staff were very insightful and engaging and poured a nice 30mm tasting so you could really enjoy what was being showcases to you.
Definitely visit here for tastings and well priced wines too!
