About
At Tulloch you don’t just do a wine tasting, you have a wine experience. Our fun and friendly team make sure that all of our guests have a great experience, every time. That’s why we are the only Cellar Door to have won the Cellar Door of the Year Award twice. We provide a bespoke tasting experience tailored to every individual, so if you want to learn, laugh or languish, we’ll look after you in one of our unique tasting spaces and help you get the most out of your visit. Our stunning Cellar Door has a diverse range of tasting spaces and experiences to cater for all occasions. You can stand at the bar for a quick peruse through our extensive range of wines or relax and enjoy yourselves in one of our beautifully appointed tasting spaces. Fireside in winter, on the balcony in summer, down stairs getting serious at our Tasting Lab with a group, or enjoying the luxurious private surrounds of our 1895 Members Lounge. We call it edutainment; a unique hybrid of education and entertainment which we pioneered here at Tulloch by listening and learning from our guests and understanding that no two are the same. At Tulloch our motto is drink better and to us that means much more than just great wine, it’s about creating better experiences created with you in mind.

We purchased a wine and chocolate tasting experience through RedBalloon. Not only was it great value for money, the experience was well displayed by the staff and our server Tully was very knowledgeable about not only the wine but the chocolate as well. We did not feel rushed when we were there and left feeling happy and well looked after.
Great food, great wine, love Tulloch wines!

We went for a tasting with a group of friends and had the BEST time - Maddy was funny, attentive and knowledgeable, and despite being short staffed (no one's fault) gave us an amazing tasting experience. Beautiful space, great wine, good vibes. We bought a bunch of bottles and can't wait to return!

Wow!!! This was our first ever wine tasting that we have done and it set the bar so high that the next few we attended at other wineries left us sooooo disappointed! Not only was the wine delightful but the host Rebecca was so friendly, enthusiastic and had such a profound knowledge of not only wines but also the Tulloch name and history and the cheese.
I found her to be a HUGE asset to your buisness and based on her customer service we actually wanted to do another wine tasting with her again but was short on time the next day. We did not feel rushed at all. The venue was gorgeous and so comfortable! I ordered a charcuterie board and it was to die for! So fresh and such beautiful produce!
I will definitely be making another trip to specifically come back here.

Whilst the host had a fantastic knowledge of the wines, we only saw her when we arrived, then towards the end of the tasting. This was an introduction to wine for my adult children. It was very disappointing unfortunately. I was intending to join the wine club but chose not to as a result.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and provide us some feedback. We are sorry you were disappointed by your experience, and while all our efforts are made to deliver exceptional customer service, admittedly it is a very busy time of year and we still remained understaffed due to Covid. We do hope you will visit again and give us the chance to show you the award-winning customer experiences we are known for, and hope that 2023 will see a desperately needed improvement in staff availability. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time. Cheers - Christina Tulloch

My mother and I booked the mystery wine tasting so I could share the experience with guests at my workplace in the Hunter Valley. I highly recommend this for all visitors from novices to the more advanced wine connoisseurs.
The presentation was great and the hosts were fantastic and very knowledgeable regarding the wines.
The view over the valley and Brokenback range was spectacular whilst sipping wine.
The charcuterie platter was amazing.
This is a great little place to visit for some outstanding wine and great service.
I will definitely return again.
The late picked Verdelho is amazing.

Our host was particularly disengaged throughout the process, and often made us feel ignorant for not knowing our wines (we came there to learn about your wines!). It was an unpleasant experience, especially given we made the trip down from the coast to Hunter to experience your beautiful winery.

We went upstairs and a gentlemen serving us there was lovely and we walked out with several bottles. His service alone demands a 5/5.

Today we experienced the Red Balloon VIP tasting and food platter for two people. It was a one on one session with Matt the cellar door manager, who was engaging, informative and relatable. The wines were all delicious and the cheese/meat platter was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Matt and Tullochs - we will be back! :)

We had a wine tasting here at Tulloch wines and it was one of the best wine tasting here in Hunter Valley. Good selection of wines and a great view on the terrace.
But the thing that left us amazed is the kidness and proffesionalty of the staff there, especially Jamie who has been more than nice with us.
100% recommended!

The location , drive through, the surroundings and the small patch of wine yard gives you mesmerising experience. It was quite cold the day we booked, we were disappointed that we were made to sit outside for wine tasting. Also the kids tasting experience was a little overpriced at 15$ each.

A visit to Tulloch wines is a must for any trip to the Hunter region, infact for us it feels a bit like coming home. From the moment you drive into the driveway you know you are somewhere special.
On this occasion we booked a tasting for my wife and I and we also booked their children's tasting platter for our children. On arrival the staff were very friendly andwe all felt relaxed and settled. Our children were very excited to have their own individual experience which allowed my wife and I to really take in the history of the wines we were tasting and trully enjoy every sip.
Our host was very knowledgeable and added to an overall great experience.
We were treated to some amazing wine and a delicious platter of cheeses and other sorted delights.
The best part was trying their private bin shiraz in different years, 2007, 2014 and 2018 and being able to fully appreciate the ageing process and how the wines mature in flavour throughout the years.
Overal a 10 out of 10 experience
