What people are saying about Pokolbin

This was a truly great day out. Our guide Julz was hilarious and got everyone talking and shared great knowledge with us about the wines and grape growing/wine making processes and tips on tasting. We had far more tastings than I would have expected, a great gourmet box (for lunch (catered for gluten free for me which was lovely) and we visited multiple venues with lovely, welcoming staff. Very good value for money. The group of us were great friends by the end and we were rather merry!

Great wine tour, excellent selection of wineries and a excellent group size of 10. But the best thing about the whole tour was to tour guide, Chris, extremely knowledgeable and in the perfect profession showing his passion and willingness to share his knowledge of wines and the Hunter Valley region.

Great tour. Knowledgeable guides. Supports smaller vineyards in the Hunter.

Well organised, three great wineries, great people and excellent value

Julie was great and looked after us We had a great day
