Owner description: Waverley Estate is the only Aged Wine Specialist in the Hunter Valley. The philosophy of the estate is to achieve low yields of fruit which create intensely flavored grapes attaining high quality but small quantity. Waverley offers award winning Semillon, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sparkling and an amazing Vintage Port. No day in the Hunter is complete without stopping by Waverley where you will witness first hand aged Hunter wines and history blended together.

“Wonderful wine tasting experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

We had such a wonderful experience at the Waverley Estate! Our large group of Aussies, Canadians and an American immediately felt welcomed by Darren and his knowledgeable and enthusiastic approach to tasting. We are all very pleased with our purchased cases and would recommend Waverley Estate to our families and friends.

Fantastic wine and fantastic service! Darren is probably the greatest wine pourer I have ever met and there is a dog... The best dog ever that you can play with!!

“Great wine, friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Small but lovely winery - we stopped in for an advertised special but were amazed by the quality of the wine. Darren went above and beyond for us, and we ended up buying 3 cases! An excellent experience.

“Darren top bloke from England”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Waverley estate was towards the end of our wine tasting day but Darren still gave us top advise and lots of wine to taste. We left with a couple of bottles but will return to buy a case of 2009 Shiraz on special for $120... They have a selection of top quality aged wines but also their cheaper younger range with bottles around $20, which are still great wines and some of the best prices in the hunter valley.

Thanks Darren,
mark and michelle

“well, keep it as a secret ... but go there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Ok. There are plenty of reviews of the vineries of the Hunter Village but if you really want to have an excellent experience, then we would thoroughly recommend Waverley Estate Aged Wines.

We were amazed by the very warm welcome followed by a more then superb wine tasting. All of the wines fully lived up to our expectations… - and actually beyond our expectations! Actually, at first, I was very inclined not to refer to this winery online – to keep it as a secret for me and my friends – but hey, I cannot be that selfish… go to the Waverly: you will definitely enjoy it.
