Really enjoyed our visit to Ernest Hills - a small boutique vineyard in a beautiful, tranquil location. Came with a Gray Line tour and we were made to feel very welcome. We had a very informative short talk about how to taste wine and explanations about each wine. Particularly liked their Verdelho wine which we had never had before. Just... More

Since travelling to the Hunter Valley I have ordered Ernest Hill wines online. The 2014 Merlot's are one of my favourite wines. Will 100% be returning soon.

We visited this winery as part of Divine Tours tour of Hunter Valley wineries. Hamish was great with his stories and the staff very friendly. Nice little spot on top of the hill - absolutely loved their Rose`, Shiraz and Merlot. Would happily visit again.

We had a small group wine tasting and Ernest Hill winery was our first (and best) stop. Lesley was very informative and made the tasting interesting and fun. I really loved their wines and could easily have bought more than the 2 bottles I was allowed to bring home. I very highly recommend a visit to Ernest Hill

Visited here with 7 others as part of a small group wine tour. Lesley the host was fantastic, demonstrating a structured wine tasting with tips on technique, whilst remaining so friendly and relaxed - best winery experience of the day! Would definitely recommend.

Went there on advice of a colleague that said it's a great place to visit. If you like bus tour groups, bustling crowds and limited facilities with rather ordinary wines - then this is the place to be. I didn't hate it but I certainly won't go back.

There was a hens party so immediately felt sorry for the poor lady helping us and the party. Once the hen flew away then the attention was perfect. Offered samples of extra little wines here and knew all about them. Was fabulous and can't wait to crack open the bottles in a few years. Will be back to buy some... More
