Cellar Door Operations: June 6th 2020 until further notice

Updated 10th June 2020

Huntington Estate is home to the most awarded red wines in Mudgee. If you love red wine, a visit to our Cellar Door is a must. 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 many others.

The Huntington Estate Cellar Door will re-open on June 6th. Our extensive gardens and grounds, with multiple covered seating areas, heating and braziers, mean we can provide a high level of service and comfort while practicing social distancing and complying with all the latest rules and regulations.

In response to the restrictions, we are changing the way we present our wines at Cellar Door. We ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate these challenging times together.

In summary our new approach is as follows: 

  • Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm tastings by appointment and bottle sales; contact us directly on 02 6373 3825 or via email to marketing@huntingtonestate.com.au to make a midweek appointment
  • Saturday & Sunday 10am – 4pm for seated, pre-paid tastings / wine flights
  • Bookings are essential for tastings (online via our website now)
  • Seating in attractive, covered, heated outdoor spaces
  • Socially distanced 1.5M between tables, 4m sq per person
  • 50 people on site at any one time, limited allocation for children 
  • Red wine only
  • 2 options for Huntington Tasting Experiences:
  1. WINE TASTING
  2. WINE FLIGHTS (PREMIUM OR ICON WINES) PAIRED WITH LOCAL PRODUCE

We have a Concierge at the site entrance to manage entry, timings and compliance with the regulations.

FAMILIES with children under 18. The number restrictions of 50 on site include children. We have been wrestling with how to balance our desire to be family friendly with our need to manage the site and make it all work. We have decided to allocate 10% of our capacity or 5 FREE children's tickets per session, with the purchase of 2 or more Wine Flight or Tasting tickets. Hopefully this is a good compromise for all.  

Hours

  • Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm: Tastings by appointment and Bottle Sales
  • Saturday & Sunday: 10am to 4pm – Fixed settings of pre-booked seated tastings
  • 50 customers are allowed on site at any 1 time; groups no larger than 10 people
