A Drop of History in Every Glass

Hungerford Hill is one of the Hunter Valley's great success stories. From humble beginnings in the 1960s, Hungerford Hill has grown beyond 50-odd years to incorporate the award-winning Sweetwater vineyard as well as the famous Dalwood vineyard, which is considered the birthplace of Australian wine and the country's oldest continually operating vineyard.


Beyond the world-class wine offerings, Hungerford Hill offers a plethora of experiences that cater to every visitor's desire. Whether you are a wine connoisseur, a foodie, or simply looking to unwind, this enchanting venue has something for everyone.


For those seeking a deeper appreciation of the art of winemaking, Hungerford Hill offers guided wine tastings (daily from 10am until 4pm) and their Epic Experience (11am to 3pm Tuesdays to Saturdays). The Epic tasting includes a mini degustation of premium Hungerford Hill wines matched to bite-sized dishes created by the two-hatted Muse Restaurant.


Hungerford Hill hosts exciting annual events throughout the year – but be warned – you need to book well in advance as they have become hugely popular.

Held only twice a year, the Sweetwater Estate Winemakers Luncheon is a rare opportunity for members and guests to experience the unique beauty of the imposing French Gothic-style dining room at Sweetwater, resplendent with original features and overlooking the magnificent Sweetwater Estate and residence. Lunch is curated by one of the Hunter Valleys' finest guest celebrity chefs and matched to Sweetwater wines selected and presented by chief Winemaker Bryan Currie. The next event is to be held on 18 May.

The first of two Epic Lunches hosted by the two-hatted Muse Restaurant on 15 June is already wait list only – so book now for the second on 22 June. This sensational five-course menu will be matched with a selection of premium aged and new release Hungerford Hill wines.
