Went there for lunch after wine tasting. Lovely aspect. And the wines were very good, we actually got onto their mailing list.

Our son and his fiancée were married and had their reception at Briar Ridge. The staff were absolutely marvellous - nothing too much trouble. Sandra deserves a special mention for her hosting of the event and ensuring its success. The food was outstanding, uniquely served, and in abundance - absolutely gourmet. The wines, red, white and bubbly, flowed all night... More

My partner and I really enjoyed the wine and view from Briar Ridge vineyard. However found our host was a little awkward and didn't have a great depth of knowledge of the product - but still a lovely employee.

We can't remember when we've had better service than we got today during wine tasting at Briar Ridge. Alison warmly welcomed us on arrival and when it was clear that we could not climb the stairs to the tasting area she set us up in a private tasting room even though she had to make many trips between the rooms....

My daughter and I went on a wine tasting tour with AEA tours from Sydney. The Briar Ridge Winery is in a beautiful, peaceful setting and our server was knowlegable, sweet and had a great sense of humor. I can't remember her name, but she is from California and loves horses. I highly recommend her and the Briar Ridge wines,... More

It's at the end of a road a bit outside the main area of Pokolbin and Cessnock but very attractive and worth finding. Adam was very friendly and knowledgable and prices were reasonable. We found excellent wines to take home and a very pleasant experience.

This was our 3rd winery stop on a full day wine tasting tour, we were a group of 24 women. The first impression was the winery and grounds were stunning, however the host of our tasting was rude and unfriendly, she rushed us through the tasting, didn't offer any useful information and was very nasty to me after I'd said...

My partner and I had a very pleasant afternoon tasting in your cellar door recently. Our host, Steven was very personable and welcoming. He took us through our tasting with ease. He was confident and comfortable in his presentation and made the visit to this cellar door worth the while. We left with some great wines and look forward to... More
