I visited there with family just to look. It is a place to visit if you really like wine. We went there on a Saturday morning, so was very crowded in the cellar, all trying to taste wine. Go there if you like tasting wine, otherwise nothing to see, sorry.

What a great experience this was. Our wine "server" was obviously experienced in knowing how to adapt to differing clientele (either you have it or you don't) We felt totally relaxed and out of all our 6 winery visits this day, this was by far the best in terms of experience and not to mention quality of wine. Don't miss... More

Tempus Two had a great range of wines from which to choose, as well as other tempting treats such as the Smelly Cheese Shop. A great place to stop for a taste of the Hunter Valley!

We were invited here by our dear friends to a private tasting in the pewter room. This was a special birthday and tempus two really delivered on this experience. Stefanie looked after us like kings. We enjoyed a very relaxed experience away from the noise and bustle from the main cellar door. The cheese plate complimented the wines we were... More

The cellar door team works hard to deliver memorable experiences for the Pewter members when they come to visit us in cellar door. Will pass on your kind words to Stephanie, she will be delighted. More

Saw both john Farnham and Lionel Richie at this winery. Well laid out with fantastic facilities. Great wine on sale for the show and brilliant performances by both artists.

Thanks for the mention, it was a terrific evening! The Tempus Two Amphitheatre was designed with brilliant acoustics in mind so that the performances of such awesome artists are heard to their full advantage. More

We stopped at Tempus Two while travelling around Hunter Valley and we had a great time. The Smelly Cheese store is a nice place to try new cheese flavours, we got into the store for curiosity and ended up buying 5 different types of cheese. Nice Verdelho for tasting and a couple of restaurants to choose from A beautiful and... More

Glad that you had an interesting and fun visit to Tempus Two. With so many things to do onsite, a relax on the grass out the front with a bit of great Verdelho & a cheese selection sounds like a smart way to refresh before getting back to some serious wine tasting. See you again soon. More

The outstanding labels promised a wonderful experience but it didn't happen. Its a great bit of marketing but more effort needs to be applied to the actual contents of the bottles. We were there mid afternoon, and the staff seemed to be bored with the tastings and just recited their spiel by rote. Don't think we will be returning.

One of the great attributes of wine is that there are so many different styles to meet people’s different tastes, sorry that you could not find something for you on this visit. After a record breaking long weekend perhaps the weariness of the staff was construed as bored however I am happy to say that the Tempus Two team are... More

We visited Tempus Two as part of a bus tour. They clearly have a lot of money behind the venture, but the style does not translate to substance. The wine was average and uninspiring, and the food venues are a bit overpriced and slow.

Thanks for your comments regarding your visit to Tempus Two. Whilst I can only speak for the cellar door team and not the other outlets, from the date of your post it would seem your visit was on Anzac Day. This day is traditionally a quieter day than other public holidays but it is fair to say that this was... More

Tempos Two combines wine tasting cellars, a mix of restaurants, and a really good deli--a tourist magnet perhaps, but well conceived and executed in a beautiful garden setting. The cellar tasting is good--we went to the Tempus Two venue-- with staff behind the counter who are knowledgable and happy to help-- they seemed to be doing more than going through... More

This is a funny place now - it used to be much better years ago. We visited looking for some lunch. Popped into Tempus Two for a couple of tastings looking to buy a white wine to have with lunch from one of the other venues in the complex. The girl was young, inexperienced and told us we couldn't do... More

Apologies for the mix up with this information. Unfortunately you spoke to one of our new team members who had only just started with us that very day. Whilst the question may have appeared simple she was not yet across all the details of the other venues that are run separately from the cellar door onsite. Once again sorry for... More
