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.

Amazing views, outstanding wines! Absolutely love this cellar door. A fabulous tasting experience and some really good wines to take home. If you have the time book lunch at Bistro Molines and then have a tasting or vice versa. Thank you Dave at Briar for sending us here after our thoroughly enjoyable tasting with you at Briar.

I had an exceptional experience at Carillon Wines, and I must commend the outstanding service provided by the cellar staff, Chels and Oli. My group of girlfriends had a weekend away at the Hunter Valley and in our classic fashion we didn’t book in advance. Despite our unplanned visit during a busy period, they displayed unparalleled professionalism and maintained a sense of calm throughout. As we sat at the bar for our tasting, they seamlessly served departing customers with care and professionalism, showcasing their multitasking skills. The service was truly enjoyable, and I'm personally inspired to seek out and purchase further Carillon wines soon. I particularly enjoyed the Rose Pinot & Rogue Skin Contact Vermentino. I would like to add Chels’ personal element, including her picks for Triple Hottest 100 were received with enthusiasm from our group.
Cheers to Chels and Oli for their wonderful service and creating a memorable visit!

Had a lovely experience. The Irish lady working there was so helpful, we told her we had limited wine experience and she was so kind and friendly, talking us through what the process was, where we could sit, what would happen on our tasting, then talked us through each wine and let us enjoy them overlooking the vineyard at our leisure. We really enjoyed a couple so took a few bottles home. Would highly recommend.

Wow, what a great last visit in the hunter before heading home! Booked a table and was given one on the deck with amazing views! The service was great and really informative about the wines which were some of the best in the hunter we had over the weekend!
Next time want to try the restaurant too!

The best view of the vineyards in the Hunter without a doubt! Before settling in for lunch at Bistro Molines my friends and I stopped into Carillion to taste some wines. They have a great line called Lovable Rogue that produces varietals that other Hunter wineries don't do, which really caught my eye (and tastebuds). Matt, our guide, was charming and excellent at fill out our wine knowledge and introducing us to some new wines. All in all a great experience with an unbeatable view. It's a little out of the way but definitely worth it.

This winery has an outstanding view, as well as outstanding staff and wines. We booked a tasting and sat at the outdoor table and the experience was 5 star. we felt that our tasting was more like a fine dining experience. Melissa went above and beyond to ensure our experience was unforgettable. I highly recommend a tasting here.

Never headed that far down Mount View before but worth it. One of the best views in the Valley, especially after the rains and how green everything is at the moment.
Our cellar door tasting was very good, the guy knowledgeable about their wines, all good quality. We'll certainly come back here again next time.

Amazing view and amazing wine. Staff were extremely friendly and explained all their wine with passion and honesty.

Thanks for a great afternoon. Will be going back.

Bonus...... they are dog friendly and looked after our pooch just as much as they looked after us.

We visited Carillion wines as part of our wine tour and it was by far our highlight. We received a beautiful tasting experience by Matt, who both indulged and entertained us. We walked away with a lovely selection of wines. Thanks Carillion Wines 👍
