Established in 1990 by Guy and Sandra Vinden, Vinden Estate Wines is a family-owned, boutique Hunter Valley winery and vineyard located in Pokolbin. Now retired, Angus our eldest runs Vinden Estate and has started his own label called the Vinden Headcase, balancing tradition with innovation. We handcraft our wines (literally not figuratively) on-site at our Hunter Valley vineyard and winery from hand-picked grapes using the traditional methods of open fermentation, hand plunging and basket pressing, as well as incorporating the best of modern wine making techniques. We are passionate about the Hunter and source our grapes from the Hunter, either grown on our Estate vineyard or sourced from the famous Travena and Somerset vineyards. We are proud to supply some of your favourite local bars, Restaurants and some of Sydney’s finest Hatted restaurants, including Quay and Sails lavender Bay. Our range of wines includes the Hunter Valley’s only Alicante Bouschet (a light dry rosé), Sparkling Alicante Bouschet rosé, Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay, Merlot, Basket Press Shiraz, Alicante Bouschet and Tempranillo. Our wine is sold on-premise at our relaxed Pokolbin, Hunter Valley cellar door.

Love the food and hospitality. Been here so many times and always love it. The menu is small but focused. Loved the duck confit. The wine tasting was brilliant. The outlook of the place is beautiful.

Turned up on the off chance that we could have a quick lunch for party of 4. All accommodated with no fuss. Beautiful setting over looking the garden. Food was excellent and beautifully presented. We even went back the next day to purchase some wine.
