Totally wins out in comparison with the more overtly commercial bottle-shifters. Go to Ivanhoe for a stunning view, with a friendly welcome, and enjoy a good range of reasonably-priced wine in relaxed surroundings. Great pity we can't yet enjoy these wines in the UK.

Hi Martin, Thank you for your positive feedback on your visit to Ivanhoe Wines. Stephen and I are pleased that you had an enjoyable time whilst here. I wish we had enough stock to export to the UK, I think our branding and quality of wine would work well over there. We look forward to your next visit and sharing... More

We have been a wine club member since 2007. The wines typically cost $17-$21 wine club member prices. However the taste is twice a tasty twice a ' wine ful' than all the other wineries. Ivanhoe seem to leave in more wine juice to make thicker deep flavours. You pay the $20+ for the privilege. The members' tasting 'event' with... More

We received very prompt, good, friendly service. Very knowledgeable and informed. Although our personal tastes didn't really like any of the whites, we could tell they were very well made. The reds however were excellent and we were surprised to find that our favourite was the Light Shiraz - we came away with 3 bottles! The location is picturesque.

My partner Gareth and I recently visited Ivanhoe during a weekend away at Hunter Valley. We were welcomed by Louise, who was our host. Louise was extremely friendly, had a wealth of knowledge of the region and made me (an inexperienced wine taster) feel very comfortable whilst introducing Gareth to their amazing Tawny Port (who later went back and bought...

We were recommended to visit this winery and in particular make sure that Lisa was our hostess. We soon realised why others had recommended Lisa as she was friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the winery and the wines. She even went into the back room to pick a couple of wines that were not listed for tasting. A... More

Ivanhoe is clearly run by people who love what they do. I've been to Ivanhoe many times and have always been felt welcome by friendly staff who offer great wines (especially the Reds). It is a must visit in the Hunter. Even if you aren't a wine buff, the location and setting are a sight to see.

As members, we have visited this cellar door 3 times over the last 2 years. We are not alone in this and the tasting room and verandah is always busy as visitors are introduced to Ivanhoe wines by the friendly, knowledgeable staff ( Denise and Lisa are standouts for us) .There is never pressure to buy because the wines sell...
