Description:

The Wilkinson's were true pioneers of the Australian winemaking industry....

The Wilkinson's were true pioneers of the Australian winemaking industry.

Despite two earlier ventures in Australia, the Wilkinson family returned after the brothers Frederick and John had studied winemaking in France and Germany. In 1866 the family acquired the present site of the Audrey Wilkinson vineyard.

Living in tents, they cleared the land and planted vines which were sourced from the MacArthur Onslow property.

By the early 1900s, Audrey Wilkinson collected awards around Australia for his Hock, claret and fortified wines. Large quantities were exported to London.

Audrey committed to leading edge technology which, at the end of the 19th century, included open cement fermenters and steam powered crushers and hoppers.

It was here the Audrey Wilkinson legacy was born.

We were literally passing through the Hunter Valley so didn't have time to do several wineries on this (our first) visit. We chose Audrey Wilkinson as we liked the sound of the location and view! We were so glad we did as we had a lovely visit and enjoyed the wine a lot too. We were initially looked after by... More

It's a lovely setting and facility, which is about where our positive experience ended. When we arrived, we weren't made to feel very welcome-- more of a cattle call experience. Pay first - I hate that. No background on the wines, winery or region. Shouldn't you lure me into your experience with a nice story? Felt more like going to... More

As you will see from the rest of our reviews, we usually receive very positive feedback, so it is concerning for us when we receive this sort... More

So thrilled to have found Audrey Wilkinson during our tour of the Hunter Valley back in January (yes, sorry...delayed review for no reason than been busy!). Apart from the location - the views are to die for - it was fantastic to have Jacob give us our tasting experience. His knowledge really assisted us to venture out from what we... More

We visited here with friends on their recommendation. We were not to be disappointed. The setting is in many acres of vines and on the day it was 37 degrees outside, but cool within the cellar doors. It is a popular call because there were a few people tasting. We tasted reds here, and the Shiraz my friend chose was... More

First time to the Hunter Valley and this was our favourite winery of the trip. Ask for Megan -- she is knowledgable but not pushy and has great recommendations! Ask about the best wine to make a white wine sangria!! Views are epic and well worth the $5 tasting fee. I'd go back! Thanks Megan!

This places has outstanding views, that's what gives it a 5 star rating. If only they could open a small deli for lunch snacks

My third time at Audrey Wilkinson and it didn't disappoint. We had the pleasure of Eric looking after our tasting on the weekend. He is such a character and made the experience really great. The tasting was $5 and we received very generous servings, the $5 was redeemable for every $50 spent so not too bad! The outlook from this... More

Good wines and fantastic views! $5 per head but you get 10% off wine purchases so works out in the end. They aren't as generous with their wine tasting servings as other wineries though.
