Owner description: The Wilkinson's were true pioneers of the Australian winemaking industry. Despite two earlier ventures in Australia, the Wilkinson family returned after the brothers Frederick and John had studied winemaking in France and Germany. In 1866 the family acquired the present site of the Audrey Wilkinson vineyard. Living in tents, they cleared the land and planted vines which were sourced from the MacArthur Onslow property. By the early 1900s, Audrey Wilkinson collected awards around Australia for his Hock, claret and fortified wines. Large quantities were exported to London. Audrey committed to leading edge technology which, at the end of the 19th century, included open cement fermenters and steam powered crushers and hoppers. It was here the Audrey Wilkinson legacy was born.

Breath taking views and an excellent wine tasting experience. The wine tasting service was personable and attentive. We came away with some great wines. We will definitely be back.
A cafe would just top of the experience, nicely.

“The best cellar in the Hunter Valley”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

I've been coming to Audrey's cellar for over 10 years and it never disappoints me. The staff are professional, friendly and knowledgable. The wines are amazing. The location and views are the best in the valley.
It's best to arrive early to avoid the massive crowds that come around lunch and early afternoon. The staff are always happy to let you borrow some wine glasses so you can soak up the atmosphere and views while enjoying one of their bottle of wines. Try their sparkling Shiraz or Malbec for something different.

“Amazing product, terrible customer service”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I cannot fault Audry Wilkinson's wine or location, both are absolutely amazing.

I as so impressed that I joined their wine club and the customer service that I received was appalling. It took over 1 month for my wine to be delivered and what I received was not what was originally paid for. It again took another month to get some form of explanation from the customer service team.
Beware of the wineclub, I would only recommend purchasing from the cellar door.

“Lovely views & wines”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We enjoyed our visit here. Ross was great - very friendly and knowledgeable about the wines, which we enjoyed. Really spectacular views when standing outside the winery - so I am very surprised they have not got a restaurant overlooking the view...

“Best ever views”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

What a brillian wine tasting experience at Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard. The views are breathtaking. You can't go to Hunter Valley without going to this vineyard. The wines are lovely. They're not stingey with their tasting samples. Staff are friendly and very knowledgeable.
