Being a regular hunter visitor, we were excited to discover this new boutique - the 2020 cellar door of the year. To be completely honest, the wines we tired are of high hunter standards, however the tasting experience is nothing special and falling completely short of how we would expect it to be. Out of the 7 cellar doors we visited in 2 days - some we are member with, nearly every places outshines Glandore in terms of explanation on the wine, the passion and most importantly the engagement and connection from the Guy who served us. He might have had a huge day. Despite the disappointment, we were keen to become the member at the end of the tasting but was only told we could not skip the September order even if we order the 12 bottle pack now which is one month early ! We left with just two bottles and there was no mentioning of the tasting fees we paid a week early either. This place has so much potential but on this occasion, we left with disappointment.

If our experience at Glandore Estate is anything to go by, it will be a long time before it wins its much mentioned 'Cellar Door of the Year' award again. Perhaps it was because we weren't young and cool like other tables of tasters. Perhaps it was because we were served by the 'mature' and casual team member who was quite perfunctory in the completion of her duties, not really interested in us and with whom we had to work very hard to engage. Perhaps it was the fact that the wines were, to all four of our palates, not that great. We actually think that the gorgeous pups, Nutmeg and Phoebe, were more pleased to see us than any of the staff who, it seemed to us, were showing signs of complacency and lacked authenticity. This was the only vineyard of 6 that we visited where we paid our tasting fees of $40 for four people and left without purchasing. With so many other, wonderful, warm and fabulously engaging vineyards to visit in the Hunter Valley, we probably won't return.

Visited as part of a twofatblokes tour. Lachlan was very entertaining and down to earth, along with being knowledgeable and informative. The wines were paired very nicely with Chocolate Truffles. The Winery dog was unobtrusive and playful. Well worth a look.

The winery was recommended by a local. We had been to the Hunter many times but just discovered this little gem. Innovative European varietals to try and these were very good. Reasonably priced wines. Went in there to buy a couple of bottles and ended up with a case. Aimee was very helpful and her suggestions helped us pick and choose our favourites. Joining as a member also gives you half price cases as well as invites to some of their social events. Well recommended.

The only thing better than a members’ tasting at Glandore is staying at the Homestead on-site so “home” is a few steps away afterwards. Geoff and Aimee ran a great tasting in the beautiful members’ lounge. Visiting at the beginning of the week rather than the weekend meant lots of space and individual attention. We have been coming here for years and will continue to do so. There are some new and exciting tasting experiences coming up too, we can’t wait.

A must on any trip to the Hunter Valley is Glandore Estate. The personalised service received by Geoff was nothing short of spectacular. And if you want your day made, to sit and chat with winemaker Nick it will blow your mind. The passion in his voice for his wines and the region are reflected in the amazing products that are pouring. There will not be any future trips to the region where we don’t pop in. Great team, great place GREAT wines.

The best wine tasting I have ever had! I am a member of Glandores Wine Club and each private wine tasting keeps getting better. This is a place you don't want to miss from its wonderful range of wines to the amazing staff. The lady who did our tasting was super fun and extreamly knowledgeable. She made the experience unforgetable! The must go to place in Pokolbin!

If you enjoy good wine then become a member before you visit. The members tasting experience is special. You will get extra attention and do the tasting in a private room overlooking beautiful Hunter scenery.
The service and knowledge of the team is great ( we enjoyed time with Lee who was very friendly and went out of her way to explain things and did not rush us at all).
Of course Glandore wines are very good and our favorite is their Hamlisch reserve Shiraz ( managed to get a case while there)
An excellent time in the Hunter, and if you want to make it more special then order the cheese platters which have a great selection of locally made cheeses.

Had a great tasting with accompanied Amazing Chocolates. Very friendly, personable and knowledgeable. Our tastes were particularly drawn to the 2017 Black label Hamish Shiraz and the 2017 Black Label Fireball Shiraz Cabernet both of which pared beautifully with the presented chocolates from a Sydney company( Handmade Adora chocolates).Especially enjoye the Lime Truffe with the white and the Real Raspberry truffle with the Shiraz. Highly Recommend. And we took some wine and chocolates home!!

Growing up in the UK I’ve been spoiled with grapes all across Europe. I’m the worlds fussiest wine drinker and Rioja is my go to red. Myself and my partner were looking for Tempranillo as it’s surprisingly limited in the Hunter Valley. Aimee was a fantastic help to us and provided us with three different Tempranillo’s.
Because of her amazing customer service, and Duane’s expertise and sense of humour, I ended up leaving with over 6/7 bottles over two days and a membership. Please please please go to Glandore estate wines if you’re looking for high quality wines. Can’t wait to return! Thank you Duane, Aimee and team for a experience!
