Hunter Valley Wineries and Cellar Doors
Noyce Brothers Wines
Noyce Brothers is located in the heart of the Wollombi Village in Hunter Valley wine country. The cellar door operates from the historic Grays Inn. The unique terroir of soil and climate enables our vineyards to produce quite distinctive Hunter style wines, in particular our Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay and Shiraz. All our wines are available through our cellar door in Wollombi village for tasting and purchase. We are very close to the Endeavour Museum, lovely restaurants, galleries, and shops, selling gifts and beautiful decorative artefacts. We are also part of the Wollombi Valley Wine Trail.
Stonehurst's boutique wines are made from organic grapes - hand picked and pruned. A great wine begins in the vineyard, and at Stonehurst we are committed to sustainable agriculture. Our elevated trellis captures sunlight and airflow enhancing fruit quality and flavours. We use no insecticide and only organically approved fungicide. This labour of love has resulted in trophy winning wines and great reviews from experts such as James Halliday.
Undercliff Winery was built in 1993 to produce 1500 cases of premium hand made Hunter Valley wines per annum and also to function as a gallery. It is nestled in a tranquil valley only 1.5 kilometres from Historic Wollombi Village.The building was drawn to compliment the existing heritage values of the Undercliff Estate. The external slab walls superbly set off the cedar cathedral ceilings and the exhibited paintings. The wine making equipment was built specifically as was the 6 metre table used for vintage lunches and other functions. Undercliff Vineyard was established in 1990 with Semillon and Shiraz varieties that thrive in the rich alluvial soils, an olive grove was also established. More recently other grape varieties have been planted such as Chambourcin, Chardonnay and Muscat. We are well known for our artistic bird labels.
Wollombi Wines first vines were planted in 1994 by the Hoft family, with the assistance of ‘Nic’, a local. All the vineyard work is carried out by family members. At harvest the bunches are selectively hand picked with one intent – the best possible quality. The vineyard receives little or no watering, none since 2004, and so yields are low, usually around 2 tonnes per acre. No insecticides are used by Wollombi Wines. Wollombi Wines is a family owned and operated boutique vineyard adjoining the historic village of Wollombi, and bordered by the beautiful Wollombi Brook. Come and enjoy a cellar door tasting. Relax in the picnic area, talk to the cows. We have a BBQ available, delicious platters can be ordered, and morning tea and lunches can be organised for groups by arrangement.
Wollombi Village Vineyard
Wollombi Village Vineyard was a project created by husband & wife team Alan & Maria Roe. They purchased the vacant block in the centre of historic Wollombi in 1988 and had visions of doing 'something' to help create more interest for the tourists that often visit this little town that seems to exist in a virtual time lock. The first paddock of Chardonnay vines were planted in October 1996, followed by Shiraz in 1999. The idea was to keep with the traditional Hunter Valley family-run vineyards, with the Mediterranean influence from Maria, who is Italian. The vineyard now produces Chardonnay, Shiraz & Rosé wines. September 9th 2006 saw the grand opening of Wollombi Village Vineyard's Cellar Door

Mount Broke Wines
All the wines available for tasting at our cellar door are from grapes grown on the property. The cellar door is next to the vineyard with views across the vines to the river and mountains beyond. All our wines offered are drink-now, but we are quite prepared to cellar some of the more exceptional vintages until it they are close to their peak, to then be released as a mature version. Our production is tiny; perhaps 800 cases in a good season to 200 when the weather doesn't cooperate. For this reason alone we restrict sales to the cellar door - these wines are not available in the shops.
Whispering Brook is located amongst the natural beauty of the Broke area, and is a boutique, family owned winemaking business developed by Susan Frazier and Adam Bell to turn a passion into reality - making premium wines. Red wines are produced from the highly prized terra rossa soils on the property - whilst the sandy loam soils located near the Wollombi Brook are ideal for producing premium white wines.The cellar door tasting room and winery is located in our beautiful Australian style building which features wide sweeping verandahs surrounded by our vineyards, olive groves and stunning mountain views.

Mount View Estate
Mount View Estate was purchased from Harry Tulloch in 2000 by John and Polly Burgess. Their dedication to quality has seen them win numerous awards including trophies for their Shiraz, Semillon, Merlot and Chardonnay. They have also received the prestigious 5-star rating in the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion in both 2010 and 2011. In 2005 John and Polly purchased a second vineyard "Limestone Creek" on Mount View Road. All wines are grown, made and sold through the estate, with single vineyard wines, being kept separate. This gives our wines a sense of place; the customer knows exactly where the wine comes from and our range of wines displays true expression of Hunter Valley terroir.
At the northern entry to Mount View, Savannah Estate produces wines from select small parcels of premium fruit grown in renowned viticulture regions throughout Australia. We choose varietals from Australia's best and most unique wine growing regions. Named after the granddaughter of the respected Petersons family, we hope Savannah will continue with the wine passion that has become part of our heritage.Rita Hourigan or Amanda will gladly guide you through the tasting of our wide range of luscious wines. We look forward to welcoming old friends and making new ones who share a thing or two in common.....the love of great wine and good company.
