I am not sure if it's because we were arriving late in the day, but it felt as though we were completely unwanted in this establishment - note, there were no other visitors at this time. Staff seemed disinterested and almost annoyed to have to discuss wines with us through our tasting. We had split - my travelling partner preferring... More

I rate this vineyard highly it is poorly known but offers a good range of wines and ciders. Customer service is well above average for the valley.

Quick stop on our way through. Back tonight for EXP. Nice wines, purchased a few. More like nice hotel reception than funky cellar door tasting. Cheese and crackers would be a nice accompaniment. More interested in chatting to husbands than us!!!

Visited with a Japanese couple from overseas who were in Hunter Valley for the first time. Booked a wine tour and James was the perfect host, explaining his thoughts about the art of making wine and the minimal intervention approach they have at Oakvale. It was a very educational look at winemaking, and we enjoyed the samples at the winery... More

Love, love, love this place! Since discovering it on one of my visits last year, I have gone back several times and taken international friends there. Their Bellini and Ciders are delicious, actually... all of their wine is delightfull. I am particularly a fan of their reserve Pinot Noir.

Was the most pleasant experience today. Cathy was so friendly and informative. She obviously loves what she does and has a real respect for the industry and the management. Thanks for making our day!

Visited this lovely winery on a Saturday afternoon and was very happy with the entire experience . The place wasn't very busy so there was plenty of time to enjoy the various different wines. They do take a 5 dollar tasting fee , however this fee goes towards local charity in the area. The staff was lovely and knew a... More

We called in on a busy Saturday morning and the cellar door staff coped reasonably well in managing multiple customers/tasters. The $5 tasting fee going to charity is a good idea and one other wineries should consider emulating. The fee only covered tasting of some of the wine range, others being reserved for those who join the wine club. This... More
