Glandore Estate

Hunter Valley

This sweet spot has a smartly kitted-out tasting area and some under-the-radar but rather tasty whites and reds, including a couple with the unusual white grape savagnin. Staff members are knowledgeable and make it fun. Try to book one of the wine and chocolate matchings in the afternoon.
