Good online experience too!

Very friendly staff and lovely wines to taste. Highly recommended for accessing the smaller boutique makers in the Hunter. Very far removed from traditional Hunter reds.

Called into this Centre and was surprised with the range of wines. The wines tasted were excellent and were no doubt made more inviting by our knowledgeable and very friendly young host. He made our fist stop a Pokolbin very memorable with his rapport and friendliness. We ended up buying some wines from different winemakers and joining the wine club... More

Great little eatery nestled away in the beautiful Hunter Valley. Great food and wine at a even better price. Had a great time at the small winemaker centre. Big plus if you have some spare time visit the tasting bar. Here you will get a chance to try wine from some of the leading wine makers in the Hunter Valley.

This is a must visit to discover quality wines from winemakers who do not have their own cellar door. Rachel was brilliant at taking us through a wide selection and we came away with some great wines that we might normally have considered. A gem amongst so many well known cellar doors.

I was passing through with a group of friends for lunch when we were like how about trying the wines here. We were a bit hesitant since it was $10 a head for tasting but the guy was so friendly, he would happily wave it if we bought 3 bottles at the end of the tasting. There was five of... More

Popped in here to try the Silkman wines, sadly the ones we wanted to try, the Shiraz - were sold-out. We did try others, and my friend bought a few bottles of a new Shiraz that had been delivered that day. Altogether, not as good as our previous vineyard visits

We have been club members for quite a few years and every time we visit Small Winemakers centre they are always friendly and have a great knowledge of their wines. One of our favourites is the Little Wine Co 2015 Rose but the David Hook Reserve sparkling Rose is also a good drop. I thoroughly recommend a visit.....
