We had lunch from the smelly cheese shop and it was fantastic - great wines at Tempus Two as well - great location to enjoy lunch and a glass of wine.

“Modern winery”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Tempus Two Winery is a modern take on a winery which lacks that family feel to it. In saying this the facilities are great with a nice outdoor patio style area to eat or drink in the sun.
The staff were helpful, although even for a Sunday it felt busy and the poor staff were run off their feet! Other reviews have said that the wines were dearer than what is available through Dan Murphy's etc, this is true for a lot of the different wineries. Visiting wineries in the hunter it is all about enjoying a nice bottle after all.
A free tasting is always good!

“Smelly at Tempus Two?”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I love Tempus Two wines, I always have. I forgot that they were located in the Hunter Valley until I drove past the place. I nearly crashed the car because I was so gob-smacked by the site of the huge establishment that they have on the property. I thought it was a convention centre! Fabulous architechture, great food, lovely wine and awesome views. What more could you want? Make sure that you grab some beaut cheeses and antipasti from Smelly's. Outstanding selection to choose from.

“Only go for a the free tasting...”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

The free tasting is always good...it's free! Don't buy any of the wines...because you most likley will find them cheaper at Dan Murphy's. I know that for a fact on there dessert wine. The Japenese & Thai restaruant associated with this attactrion is over priced and under delievered. The service was appalling and the lack of variety for Japenses was not great either.

“Interesting but cold”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We were there early in the day, so we got good service and some interesting tips for the rest of the day. The wine was OK but for some the best thing was the bottle, all interesting.

The setting was modern, but came over as cold concrete and metal. comparing it to something like Iron Bark, where there was plenty of timber around.

The other shops in the complex were interesting and worth a look.
