We visited for tasting on 29/7. The place was busy. We had to squeeze to find a spot. But when we did, were greeted with first class service from the staff there. Explaining about the wines, giving generous pours (we asked for smaller pours) and sought to understand what we liked so that he can recommend wines to taste rather than run thru the big list of wines available for tasting. We finished off with some beautiful muscats and ports. Great vibe and really enjoyed ourselves.

Spacious tasting rooms, good wine & friendly knowledgeable staff.
Even when they had a bus tour we were not left to feel like we were an afterthought. Will be back,

I imagine most Aussies may hate me for saying it but their cakes are generally dire and I speak as a Scot (and, yes, I know we Scots die young because of our addiction to cakes and biscuits) and an Australian. But the cafe at Drayton's Winery is the exception that proves the rule. The cakes are baked by wonderful ladies who work or perhaps own the cafe. And the cakes - and coffee - are SUPERB. Quite delicious and such really nice people. Go for the cheesecake!

While in the Hunter Valley I had the pleasure of visiting Drayton's Winery, a trip organised as a wedding present. This included a tasting of over 19 different wines, a cheese and biscuits plate and personal service from Daniel(one of the friendly staff). It was fantastic, we not only got to taste the wines - the 2009 Merlot was a standout - but we learnt quite a bit of local history as well.
The package also included two bottles of wine as a gift from draytons. I would heartily recommend this winery to anyone visiting the Hunter Valley. A true 5 star experience

staff member was not the least bit interested in serving us.He explained that their fridge was still not working after breaking down 2 weeks ago. Staff in the cafe were a bit more friendly. Would not recommend this at all.
