A visit to the Huntington Estate Cellar Door is a must for serious wine-lovers.
"A first port of call for visitors to Mudgee. 5 Stars" Halliday "The most elegant expression of the Mudgee style" Gourmet Wine Traveller
Established in 1969 and a 5 Star Winery with The Real Review’s Certificate of Excellence; Huntington Estate has won NSW Wine of the Year, twice NSW Best Dry Red, and a trophy at the Sydney Royal amongst hundreds of others.
We grow, make and bottle a wide range of wine styles from Methode Traditionelle bubbles, dry whites, ageworthy reds, a sticky and vintage fortified shiraz.
Although we lost our 2020 vintage to smoke taint from the bushfires, we've been careful with our stock and so have good supplies of 2019 whites to last us until the 2021 Vintage is in bottle, so if you're looking for elegant and fresh white wines this season look no further than our vivacious fizz, and our highly acclaimed Semillons and Chardonnays.
Huntington Estate is home to the most awarded red wines in Mudgee. If you love red wine, you'll absolutely love our Cellar Door!
Food is available at the Cellar Door:
The Huntington Larder is full of the finest local produce for you to build your own picnic. Choose from our selection of High Valley Cheeses, Robert Stein Charcuterie, Mudgee Sourdough Baguettes, Spencer Cocoa chocolate, Aril Estate Olives, local honey and seasonal produce (cherries in November). Add a bottle of wine, our own craft beer or cider or a local cordial and enjoy.
OPENING HOURS / DAYS
Open 7 days a week from 10 am to 4 pm (last tasting begins at 3 pm)

TASTINGS / BOOKING
Online bookings are highly recommended, and essential for weekends and groups of 6 or more (scroll down).
Bookings can be made for one of 5 fixed time sessions throughout the day.
Tasting sessions are of fixed duration so customers should arrive on time to take advantage of the full experience.
We charge $10 per head for tastings at the time of booking for either Whites or Reds, with the option to upgrade to an Icon Tasting for our Special and Grand Reserve wines. One fee is redeemable per 6-pack purchased.
Tastings of 5 of our delicious wines are guided by our friendly and knowledgeable staff, supported by a detailed tasting booklet.
Children are welcome, but numbers are limited per session due to our space constraints and require a child's ticket. If there are none available for a session it means we have sold out. Please try another session.

The Cellar Door
Light, airy and spacious, the Cellar Door was built in the early 1970s and features custom-made stained glass windows and bench tops made using oak planks from the original vats in the winery.
The Studio in the Queenslander
Owner & Chief Winemaker Tim Stevens brought this former artist's studio down from his Uncle's homestead in Queensland, and converted it into a lovely tasting room.
The Studio also has a furnished verandah that catches a cooling breeze and overlooks the gardens.
We have a beautiful picnic lawn with trees and umbrellas where you can build your own picnic from delicious local produce purchased at The Huntington Larder (click here for more information).
