“Great wines, great service”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Naomi the wine stewardess was willing to help and discussed in great detail the wines. She was amusing without being overly so. She knew her wines and helped us decide which ones to purchase. The atmosphere was good, the wines were good. Overall a good experience - thanks Naomi. Would definitely recommend this wine farm

“One of the best experiences out of many visited.”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

On a long day we did many wine tastings, and the experience is much the same in each one. Experienced staff willing to help and plenty of time to talk you through the flavours of each wine to find the best for you. The region is a great place to visit for a day

“Great wines”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

McGuigan had some really lovely wines at a very affordable price. A bit of a large commercial feel to it which we felt in the service as well, but definitely worth a visit.

“Very busy winery with average wines”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

This is a very busy and popular winery however there are much better wines available in the hunter. There is a large tasting area that is popular with coach tours.

“Ok but very big winery & lacked the intimate feel of the boutique places”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Really lovely staff, friendly & welcoming. The wines are ok - not my thing but not bad. It's like a huge bottle shop, kinda old & ok. Not somewhere we would return as there are so many amazing places so close by that there is no need to go to an average place.
