“Great setting”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

The wines were interesting but not very many reds. The ability to taste a number of wines from a number of different growers with different styles was great.

“Great variety of wines on offer, friendly and helpful staff”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

For something off the beaten track, this is a place not to be missed. We were able to try wines from a variety of small and boutique wine makers here (for a small fee of A$5 if no wine is purchased), and this was a fantastic experience for us as we were able to sample a wide range of Hunter Valley wines in one location. The girl assisting us was most helpful and had a good knowledge of the various wines as well.

“Blah & very snooty”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

Walked in... walked around & walked out!
The saleswoman had an air of complete pretentiousness and came across as a huge snob. My money & custom went elsewhere.

“Great food, and open til midday for breakfast!”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

Have visited this place twice for food, heat service and coffee both times. Fantastic surrounds, relaxing pond and swans.

Food was fantastic and they actually do breakfast!! Something that most hunter valley areas seem to be lacking.

“Excellent place to taste and buy wine in comfort”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We had a great experience at the Small Winemakers Centre. It gives a good opportunity to taste a range of wines that you don't typically find at your local bottlo - including some great biodynamic wines, like those from Krinklewood. The staff were knoowledgable, very friendly and helpful, we could comfortably sit on bar stools and taste at leisure and we found some really lovely wines to buy. Just need to go back to re-stock!
