We originally came at 11.30am however it was closed. We returned at 4pm and wine tasting was still on. Les and Therese were lovely hosts, having owned the multi faceted property for a couple of years. All wines were of good quality with the chilled Ruby being the highlight. So good we ended up staying for dinner - see separate... More

We held our work Christmas Party at Emma's and enjoyed the gorgeous relaxing atmosphere. Perfect wines with the delicious food and excellent service! The staff went out of their way to ensure we had the perfect night to celebrate the end of year. Highly recommend visiting the Cellar Door or Restaurant, you wont regret it!

Relaxed wine tasting and delightful people. Bought several bottles. They suggested visiting Lucy's Run which we did!

Came here as part of the lovedale long lunch. This was a great little place, probably my favourite for the day. Very quaint.

We stayed at Emma's Cottage and visited the cellar door while onsite. The wines are quite tasty and worthy of a stop.

Included this vineyard on an independent wine tasting day in the Hunter Valley. Met the owners who were friendly and informative about the Lovedale vineyards. There is a small art gallery, an interesting range of jewellery and a cafe in the cellar door area.

This was very disappointing. Heard it was the first time the new owners were a part of this yearly event. Was our first stop and we couldn't wait to get out - not enough staff for the number of people attending. Hopefully they will learn from this, speak to the other wineries and take heed of feedback such as this.

We ended our wine tasting tour at Emma's Cottage and enjoyed the wines the wines to taste. It is a small place that also has accommodation with local artists' work on display. The restaurant smelled so wonderful and the menu interesting - we were sorry we had made arrangements to meet friends elsewhere. We'll have to come back.

We had a lovely dinner at Emma's. The weather was nice and we were lucky enough to enjoy the view with an outdoor table. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was lovely and the views dreamy. We took the opportunity to take a stroll on the ground the host was kind enough to let us wonder through the... More
