Around Hermitage you will find some of the most awarded hand crafted Hunter Valley wines. You’ll enjoy wines that are only available at the cellar door where you will likely meet the owners or winemaker who would love to chat about the latest vintage and their new release wines. Around Hermitage Hunter Valley is synonymous with the grape varieties of Semillon and Shiraz, but you’ll also find varieties not often seen in the Hunter. Come and try some Hunter Valley Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, Verdelho and some of the best Riesling in Australia, all locally grown.

For something different try some locally made beers, vodkas and gins.
