Ivanhoe Wine Tastings & Masterclasses

Find the wine you love!

Our mission at Ivanhoe is to help you find the wine YOU love. Whether you are new to the wine game or a seasoned wine taster, our experienced (and passionate) cellar door hosts will guide you through the best way to taste and enjoy our premium Hunter Valley wines.

At Ivanhoe, we’re renowned for our friendly, knowledgeable service and are always excited to welcome visitors to sample our wines, have a chat and enjoy our beautiful vineyard. Individuals, couples and groups can all be catered for so please get in touch if you are visiting for a special occasion and we’ll make sure your visit is a memorable one.

THE MASTERCLASS: Swirl, sniff and take three sips…

Every cellar door visitor is invited to participate in a masterclass, free of charge as part of the wine tasting experience. The masterclass is a ‘how to’ of wine tasting designed to ensure you get the most out of each wine you sample. Your host will give you hints and tips to help you identify the key characteristics of a wine so you can judge each wine for yourself. By the end of your masterclass, you’ll be able to name your likes and dislikes, so you can find the Ivanhoe wine you love.

The masterclass is the perfect introduction to Ivanhoe’s wines and an ideal addition to your itinerary if you have a few cellar doors to visit. These newfound wine tasting skills will come in handy as you visit other cellar doors during your visit to Pokolbin and the Hunter Valley.

THE VIP EXPERIENCE: Indulge, relax and enjoy….

If you have a bit more time on your hands and want to treat yourself, we recommend booking a VIP wine tasting. This experience includes the wine masterclass as well as:

Words From Our Happy Visitors!

My partner Amelia and I had the most amazing experience at Ivanhoe Wines.
We were met by Ken who was not only incredibly knowledgeable but an absolute gentleman and pleasure to have been around.
We had intentions of a short stop in but stayed for a couple of hours and really left feeling that Ken and Ivanhoe had given us a truly memorable experience.

The most amazing wine experience!
Visited on a wine tour, looked after by Lewis. His service was absolutely fantastic and the wines were delicious. The vineyard was stunning! Will definitely return and is a must visit cellar door for everyone.

Ken and Bel gave us an exceptional experience from the minute we walked in the door. Ivanhoe Wines has an amazing property with great views, friendly and knowledgeable staff and delicious bold reds. We spent an hour at the cellar door chatting away and having a great time. I would highly recommend coming to the Hunter and supporting a small family winemaker like Ivanhoe.

Came here for a hens weekend away. First winery was Ivanhoe and we were left in the extremely capable hands of Brayden. He made the whole experience the best wine tastings I've ever been to. He was so fun and knowledgeable. Answered every question we had and was not scared to have a laugh. Wines were amazing too. Will definitely come back here!
