Had a great time with the complimentary wine tasting which consisted of quite a few! Great wine and excellent service, very friendly! We got to sit down while trying the wine which made it not feel rushed. Definitely a must do!

We booked a small group tasting here on a Saturday morning as part of a weekend of wine tasting in the Hunter Valley. The staff member really made us feel welcome and was quite knowledgeable about the wines. We were quite lucky to have a sunny day for our visit, as that made it perfect for tasting white wine and...

We came here as our friends remembered this winery from approx 20years ago! After our 4 day weekend - this just happened to be our last winery we visited This tasting was streets ahead of the 14 other cellar door tastings we had completed! I'm not normally a Chardonnay drinker but one of theirs particular impressed me! Their Obsessive Shiraz... More

We drove through a lot of rain and checked a lot of reviews to get here. This was supposed to be a highlight of our trip! However the lady couldn't be bothered to serve us, preferring to serve others without children!

Hi Sally, Sorry to hear about your recent experience. We obviously do pride ourselves on being welcoming to both adults and children. We do offer children an activity pack and juice poppers to hopefully keep them entertained so then adults can then also be entertained by our wonderful staff. It sounds however that this was not your experience. I would... More

We found this gem on a road with beautiful views! On arrival we were greeted with tasting of about 12 wines and a lovely cheese platter. The staff were very knowledgable and happy to answer any questions. The wines were amazing with so many intricately detailed flavour combos! And the views were absolutely stunning! Couldn't wipe the smile off our... More

We were recommended a visit to Scarborough Wine Co by the person who served us at Usher Tinkler Wines. On arrival we were greeted warmly and told to take a seat, then were given a selection of all wines along with a detailed explanation of each and a small cheese, fruit and crackers plate. All for no charge! An intimate... More

From the moment we were warmly welcomed at the door to the moment we left with a selection of wines in hand, our visit at Scarborough was enjoyable and informative. We arrived midweek without a reservation, and were immediately accommodated, but I would recommend calling ahead so you don't miss this wonderful experience. We were treated to a tutored tasting...

At Scarborough cellar door the wine tasting is proposed in a structured way seated at tables. This adds a lot to the comfort and the enjoyment of the tasting session. During our session we were served 4 Semillions, followed by 4 Chadonnays and finished of with 4 red wines. The staff provided excellent background information on the wines and vintages... More

This was our first winery we visited on our latest trip and it was a great start. The staff were friendly, efficient and professional. There was not fee and we were provided with cheese and biscuits for our taste tasting. Liked the white wines and took a few bottles home. Wines were reasonably priced. Definitely worth going to.
