“fantastic tasting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

What a beautiful location. This has to be one of the best tasting experiences in the Hunter. The professionalism of the staff should be noted and the presentation of the tasting glasses. We always make a trip to Scarborough Wine as the wines are great, the view fantastic and the staff helpful.

“A wine tasting experience that stands out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Scarborough Winery has fantastic views across The Hunter, but it is the wine tasting experience that really stands out. The wines are tasted seated at a table and accompanied with small bites of complimentary cheese and biscuits. Using a fresh glass for each wine, your guide takes you through a range of white, red and dessert wines. Each wine is explained and there is no rush. In fact the pace was leisurely with the emphasis on answering any questions. We have been twice and will be back - not least because we love the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir!

“Lights on but no-one home!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

There are so many wineries to choose from, that selecting one to visit can be a bit bewildering. We selected this one for the promised view and incredible welcome. The view was great but the welcome - not so much. We wandered into the cellar door and around the grounds, couldn't find anyone except a gardener. He was happy to wax lyrical on the garden but that was all. It was a Friday morning so maybe it is only staffed on weekends.

“A new love for Chardonnay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Most Hunter Valley wineries feel touristy and focused on sales, but Scarborough felt very different. Much more personal and friendly and also a lot quieter! Had a lovely tasting of Chardonnay and learned to finally appreciate this wine. Thanks Talin!
