“Highly Recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

This was the first time we have visited the Hunter Valley and Hungerford Hill was the first stop and the most memorable.

Rebecca who conducted our tasting was highly knowledgable and we learnt a lot from her. This was the best tasting we had and can't be compared to other wineries. We believe it also had the best wine, it was so great we went back for more on the Sunday, where Rebecca greeted us and once again provided a top service that will never be forgotten.

We will be returning back to the Hunter in September and defiantly will be stopping in at Hungerford Hill. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hungerford Hill Wines, the experience and service that we had was fantastic and can't be faulted and of course the wine was great!

“An "Epic" mini-Hatted degustation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

When you visit most wineries, there is always usually a cellar door with knowledgable staff who are passionate about their wines and their craft, and are happy to let you sample their wares with the understanding you are most probably going to leave with at least one bottle. For wine lovers, we all love the cellar door.

Hungerford Hill Wines has what seems to be a unique-to-the-Hunter-Valley foodie experience, in addition to the normal cellar door option. For the paltry sum of $38 (less if you are a HH wine club member), you get to sample 4 of their Collection wines plus matching foods, with a personalised commentary on how the wines match the food, andy why. We had Amanda today, and for someone who only works there on the weekend, she knew so much about the wines, the food, award-winning Muse restaurant, everything! She is an asset to the company, and in from a customer experience perspective, I loved the fact that she was almost as passionate about food as I am!

My mother came down from QLD's Sunshine Coast to visit, and the 90 minutes we spent at Hungerford Hills absolutely made her weekend. A 10 out of 10 experience for me!

I have a simple recommendation for anyone. Do this. $38 for an almost 2 Chefs Hatted mini degustation with matching wines will be one of the best things you can do in the Hunter Valley

“Wine tasting trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Wine trip with university college friends led us to hungerford hill. We all found the experience to be engaging, intimate and informative. This is unlike the less attractive commercial approach adopted by other wineries we visited. I would definitely recommend the visit.

“Many options”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Phil the guy serving us was very knowledgable. He let us taste almost everything because we were on a tour with Kangarrific. We learned about the grapes used in the wines and about vineyards. It was a fabulous location and building. Well established.
