Good wine

One of our favourite Shiraz. No fee and generous servings for wine tasting. Come early as the 12 pm wine tour fills out quickly.

You know how far Winner of International Winemaker of the year can go. Not as far as the Cellar Door on this occasion. We had a young man who was not big on customer service & therefore we did not feel the love in the wines we sampled. Thanks for the samples but you lost us on this occasion.

Been here a few times and each time made a purchase. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Just walk up to a bar and tell the staff which wines you'd like to try from the list. Got the autumn harvest and a tawny.

Winner of International Winemaker of the year four times in the last decade including 2016. We spent about an hour tasting here. Our server was Josh, who after a slow start became very engaging and proved that he had great knowledge on wine and especially the Mcguigan products.

Private wine tasting with friends who are club members. Very informative on all the different types of wines, how they're produced, aged etc. Purchased a number of cartons and became members - membership offers free delivery. Great couple of hours, very relaxed atmosphere.

Huge cellar with lots of gifts for sale. We had a friendly host and enjoyed their white wines. McGuigan have a fast price range from some tasty cheaper wines to more expensive. We also visited the Hunter Valley Cheese factory next door.

We can not recommend this cellar door. The attendants gave us distracted attention and didn’t put in the same effort that we found at the majority of cellar doors over our 4 days of tastings in the region.
