The only vineyard in the Hunter Valley that grows a dry Riesling
5 Red Star Winery – James Halliday Wine Companion 2017
A Scotsman by the name of Allan originally built Pokolbin Estates Australian colonial cottage in 1889, on a property adjoining the Hunter valleys first vineyard planted by James Busby in 1831.
On the 21st August 2011, a devastating fire gutted Pokolbin Estates elegant sandstone cellar door. It has since been rebuilt, ushering in a new era for Pokolbin Estate Vineyard.
Pokolbin Estate has won Best Semillon in Australia 5 times and Best Riesling in Australia in 2011. We also produce classic Hunter Shiraz and Mediterranean varieties like Sangiovese, Nebbiolo & Tempranillo.
Pokolbin Estate Vineyard is a boutique style vineyard located just 2 hours north of Sydney. We are set in the heart of Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia. We offer a range of premium wines and a sensual selection of gourmet foods at our Hunter Olive Centre.
