  • The view from our dining space was picturesque and breathtaking. James Estate Wines loves being able to bring the flavours of the Hunter to your door step. Their grapes are grown in the region and made and bottled onsite. It was an incredible and unforgettable view. We participated in an interactive game on wine and Hunter Valley knowledge. Spoiler alert, the winner receives a bottle of wine. How lucky! They also have a $50 lucky dip wine box to purchase from the gift store. We were served a cheeseboard which had a range of different cheeses to be paired with the wine servings. The fig jam was nice and sweet, so be on the lookout! There was a selection of wines served, starting with the white wines and making our way to the reds, to finally the dark reds. This transition is important to prepare your taste buds and gradually build up a tolerance before trying the rich wines. This allows you to enjoy the full breadth of the wine instead of being hit in the face with a flavour impact. The white wines we tried were the Athyrium Sparkling Blanc de Blanc, Semillion Blanc, Elkhorn and the Chardonnay Semillon Verdelho. The red wines were the Estate Merlot, Staghorn Shiraz Merlot and the Single Vineyard Reserve Mclaren Vale Shiraz. We both agree that our favourite wine was the Athyrium Sparkling! Made from the James Estate Hunter Valley Chardonnay vineyards, this wine is blended from three different vintages creating an elegant and sharp taste that is both refreshing and very easy to drink. We could imagine a wine as such could be matched with almost any food.
  • Fantastic woodfired pizzas and top notch service.
