What Others Say
Just wanted to leave a quick thank you note for Carolyn. My partner and I visited over the Queens Birthday weekend, dropped in to taste and were greeted by one of the best cellar door staff we've ever come across. Carolyn was knowledgeable and hilarious. The Small Winemakers Centre ended up being a marjor highlight of the trip. We left with some Little Wine Company Sangio and Gewurz and will definitely be back for more. Thanks! James, Sydney, NSW
"This was our first stop in the Hunter Valley, and such a great spot to get started! They have lots of wines from smaller winemakers - ones you can't get anywhere else. Not knowing much about wine, we went in nervous about not knowing enough to order wines properly. But Janet was extremely patient, helpful and just really fun. She was so knowledgeable and made it a great experience. Definitely recommend a visit to this winery!"

"We love many of the wines of the Hunter and their wonderful cellar door staff who introduce us to so many new varietals. BUT Small Winemakers have the best of the smaller boutique wineries - which means that every wine is a sensation. David Hook, Little Wine Company and more - too fabulous! The staff are always so knowledgeable and friendly - Miriam is a treat if you are lucky enough to lassoo her! Fabulous wines, and a lovely experience."

"First visit yesterday and we really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, personal service and the obvious passion that Robert has for the wines and the region. He quickly worked out what would suit us and we thoroughly enjoyed all that we tasted. Bought a mixed dozen and signed up for the club to get wines during the year. "

"The small winemakers that are represented here at this centre are real quality and match if not surpass some of the older more established winemakers. We love going and talking and tasting wines - it's an experience we enjoy and come away smiling every time along with some exceptional wines."
