Lovely cheese board to start with and then we went through to the wine area. Nice wines but they seemed a little understaffed. Worth a visit :)

Another venue we visited because we had heard about it. On walking in it was very busy but almost immediately a staff member asked if they could help us etc. We wanted to browse and they let us do exactly that. They did not pressure us at all and we felt totally relaxed browsing around the winery. On finishing browsing... More

Nice wine and a large place for free wine tasting. Many people can taste wine at the counters with the assistance of friendly staff. At the heart of Pokolbin, so close the the hunter garden and other attractions. There is a nice cheese shop down the road. We bought some good wine and really enjoyed the visit.

The building is ugly and uninviting. However inside the winery was pleasant and service was excellent. Tastings were free. We only tried one wine as we were pretty sure of what we wanted with our lunch and were not in a position to buy any bottles to take with us. Outside is ugly and very uninspiring and felt very lazy,... More

This wineries has earned numerous Australian and International awards for their wines. This is a special vineyard in the Hunter. Our host, Joel, kept leaving us where we were seated, and would then return with a really wonderfully tasting wine.

We visited the Hunter Valley for a wedding. It's a beautiful part of the world and well worth a drive out of Sydney. The day after the wedding we visited McGuigan's with some people we'd met at the wedding the day before. As one of the people was a member of their wine club, she kindly booked a tasting. We...

We went here as a part of a wine tour and so had a private tasting which probably made the experience a lot better than normal. Our hostess Linda was great and very knowledgeable of the wineries products. The wines were good and the experience was excellent.

Great selection of wines - loved being able to compare different vintages etc. Member of staff was well trained but lacked a bit of passion - possibly jaded from repeating it so many times?
