Why Is The Ivanhoe Wines Experience #1 in Pokolbin?
It’s in our genes… Owned and operated by Stephen and Tracy Drayton since 1996, the Ivanhoe Estate produces premium Hunter wines, renowned for their gutsy reds and great whites.
A fifth-generation member of the famous winemaking Drayton family, Stephen brought the historic Ivanhoe vineyard to life with his own style, passion and love for all things wine!
Taking immense pleasure in their work and their love for both people and wines is the driving force behind the organisation. While it takes a great amount of time and effort to run a vineyard, for Stephen and Tracy it means much more than work, it is their life and passion and a visit to the Ivanhoe Estate is living proof of this...
