The Cellar Door

When it comes to wine cellar doors, Ivanhoe estate’s award-winning cellar door will not disappoint. The estate is a modern-day replica of the Ivanhoe Homestead built in the 1800s. Visitors are welcome to come and sample the Ivanhoe wines while relaxing on the verandah, overlooking one of the most beautiful sights of the Hunter Valley as the sun sets over the Brokenback Range.

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than to enjoy delicious cheese and wine, good company and the splendour that the Ivanhoe Estate has to offer?

The Wines

Boasting a wide range of varieties and continued production of new releases, Ivanhoe has a wine for every knight. The vineyards are planted with Shiraz and Semillon, which the Hunter is famous for, as well as other exquisite varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Chambourcin and Gewurtztraminer.

As most of the Ivanhoe vines are over fifty years old, they are low yielding, but their fruit reveals rich colours, good tannins and intense flavours which are distinctive to the Hunter region. The Ivanhoe Estate invites you to come to their cellar door in the Hunter Valley and sample their wines and experience the exceptional quality for yourself.
