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.
PERSONAL TASTING: Swirl, sniff and take three sips…
Cellar door visitors are invited to participate in a personal wine tasting experience when they visit. The personal tasting 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 tasting, you’ll be able to name your likes and dislikes, so you can find the Ivanhoe wine you love.
The personal tasting 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.
$5 per person. Bookings highly recommended.
