Wyndham Estate is an award-winning tourism destination which attracts more than 40,000 visitors annually, and after taking out the award for 'Best Tourism Winery' in NSW for the last 3 years, we are now in the NSW tourism Hall of Fame! We have also now won best tourism winery in Australia, twice in the last 3 years! The expansive property sits peacefully on the banks of the Hunter River surrounded by undulating vineyards, green pastures and quiet countryside. There is a heritage trail which shows off the main points on the property including Dalwood house which was built in the early 1800's, the family graveyard where George Wyndham himself is buried, our 'fish hotels' and is a great way to spend half a day. The main building on the Estate, captured in the Wyndham Estate logo, was erected in 1904 from local sandstone which was hand-cut by convicts and bears lovely red cedar timber ceilings which add to its rustic elegance. Visitors can enjoy a range of experiences including: Wine tasting daily at the Wyndham Estate Cellar Door which comprises a full selection of favourites such as the BIN range and George Wyndham wines as well as single vineyard Hunter Valley wines for the connoisseur; A fantastic, free wine club which gives people exclusive access to some rare and older wines not available to the general public. « less

We had our wedding here in September last year and people are still raving about it! The food was amazing and the service was even better. We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting and there was so much room. Hannah the wedding planner was so organised and helpful. We could not have asked for a better day!... More

We had lunch here. It was very pleasant outside. What I wanted was not on the menu so I asked - barramundi and green salad - and they happily did it. Food was excellent as was the wine but quite expensive. $120 for two glasses of wine each and two lunches.

We recently (April 2014) had our wedding at Wyndham Estate and everybody, including us had a ball. The setting is spectacular, one of the best in the Hunter. Although it rained on the day, their indoor option for the ceremony had to be one of the best - the Cask Room (the outdoor venues we could not use are amazing... More

Wyndham Estate produces some of the best wines around, so when I made a trip to Australia from the states, I had to include a stop. Skip the regular wine tasting and go for the VIP wine tasting with Cameron, it's well worth the extra cost and you get to try a variety of wines that are only offered at... More

We visited this estate as part of our trip around the Hunter Valley wine tasting and enjoying the scenery. We were met by Cameron who knew his profession and spent time with us discussing the history of the estate, the different wines and the state of the industry today. We were greeted warmly by all the people in the Hunter... More

We visited four years ago and became members after a wonderful morning spent at Wyndham Estate. We have since visited many wineries within Australia and overseas but Wyndham continued to set the benchmark. When we returned with friends I was hoping we would not be disappointed on our return. Brigitte had prepared a wonderful cheese platter; delivered an informative wine... More

Our group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed a couple of hours of wine tasting with Cameron, our very informative wine expert at Wyndam Estate. He shared his extensive knowledge (and delicious wines) with us, and we left feeling much more informed...and oh so relaxed. Also highly recommend joining the 555 Club for it's great purchasing benefits.

If you are looking for a venue for a wedding or function there is no better place than Wyndham estate. Hanna the functions coordinator couldn't have been more helpful. She certainly did go above and beyond with everything. The food was to die for and there was plenty. Being lovers of food and wine we could not have found a... More
