A Wine Experience Like No Other

When Frank Laureti was introduced to Bluegrass Cabernet Sauvignon through a friend, he subsequently took up a Saddler’s Creek Club Equus membership, which he enjoyed for over ten years.


Such was his love for the wine that when Saddler’s Creek came up for sale in 2014, Frank purchased the Pokolbin winery lock stock and barrel in partnership with his wife Wendy and brother Serge!

Frank concedes that buying into the wine business was, “a romantic notion” but as he says, “you do some things for work and some things to live – after all friends, food and wine are among life’s great pleasures.”

Frank’s passion and enthusiasm remain undiminished, and Saddler’s Creek Wines continue to create a point of difference not only with their wines but with the way they present them to an enthusiastic wine market – providing their customers with an exceptional wine experience, anywhere and every time!

Their philosophy has been consistent: to carefully select and harvest small-batch parcels of the highest quality fruit and then with a gentle hand, craft wines of premium quality – elegant, well balanced and fruit-driven.

Saddler’s Creek Wines remains a family-owned boutique winery, and they believe their long-standing relationship with Club Equus members has been forged through this steadfast philosophy and shared desire to enjoy life’s simple pleasures – good friends and family, good food and of course great wine.

Saddlers wines are distinctly different from the vast majority of wine product available to wine lovers. Visit their Pokolbin Cellar Door to experience a premium wine tasting experience. Enjoy one of their seasonal tasting food and wine journeys, or attend a regular themed masterclass to enhance your wine understanding and knowledge. Their food trailer also offers a seasonal menu curated to enhance their wine flights.

The popular ‘Weekends at Saddler’s’ allows visitors to relax in the wine garden on each Friday, Saturday and Sunday where they can enjoy local live acoustic music, with delicious food to complement their wine tasting experiences.

Saddler’s Creek Wines also offer a beautiful picnic ground with picnic tables or BBQ facilities and stunning Brokenback Range vistas. Book your picnic pod and allow the Saddlers team to curate your unique and special get-together from an intimate proposal through to a special milestone birthday.

The wine garden and picnic grounds are family and pet friendly, and the Saddler’s team look forward to welcoming you soon! For details of wine tasting experiences and events, visit
