The Oakvale experience puts the larger cellar doors to shame. Hosted by the owners who demonstrated a genuine passion for their wine range, bottling techniques and love affair with ow I g a vineyard. Oakvale is a must visit!

Visited this winery in June 2013, fell in love the their Shiraz wines. Such a light but full red wine. This winery is a must if you are visiting the Hunter Valley and enjoy a great red wine.

This is a must visit whilst in the region. The staff was very friendly and very knowledgable about the wines on offer but also highly educated in terms of wines in general. This was the most pleasant tasting experience we spent the most time in this cellar chatting and talking about wine. The single Vineyard Shiraz is just excellent.

A fantastic boutique winery. Recently renovated it has a beautiful cellar door and gardens. The wines are exquisite.

What a great winery! You must stop here!

Recently renovated, it is probably the most attractive entrances I have seen in the Hunter for a cellar door. It has the most magnificent display of all the bottles of wine and a wonderful sneak peak into the wine making process through a huge glass window. But the real show stopper is the actual wine!

I had the chance to speak with the winemaker himself and what a story he has! The way he makes the wine is not only for an original taste with snippets of his extensive knowledge from the Napa and interest in french oak, its also considerate to ingredients - taking out as much sugars, sulfa etc to be curious to the body.

My top pick to me tasted (and bought) are;

- the reserve Chardonnay
- the single vineyard Shiraz
- the single vineyard Chardonnay
- the cider
- Elle Champagne
- Rose

oh and you must ask to see "the eggs" - fascinating if you are interested in the wine making process!
