“Beautiful Port”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I visited this winery after a recommendation from a local. The wine is good, but the port is beautiful. well worth the money, which was very reasonable. We stayed for lunch, which was average and over priced. I suggest having something other than coffee here to drink as it wasn't very nice. Nothing compared to the little bakery in Cessnock at the IGA shopping centre. The service at Draytons was fantastic and I recommend the winery for any lover of port.

“Vino in the Sun”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Anyone planning on visiting the Hunter Valley. Make sure you stop off into Draytons Estate. A great place to take family or friends. Go between the months of October through until May. Soak up the sun and enjoy some great wines. The Oaky Creek Riesling is very refreshing.

“Not tasty at all, but the cafe is pretty good.”

Seemed like cheap wine, although the guy who was serving us was funny and engaging. He had a great personality, but he wine was swill-

“Unfriendly”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

We did not enjoy our visit here. Arrived for the 11am tour advertised on their website.....but we were told they don't do them anymore. Served by a disinterested staff member who had a really dirty shirt. Wines were only ok. But we didn't stay to try them all.
