Enjoy a Tasting Journey at Saddler's Creek

The Saddler's Creek story begins in 1990 when two friends with a passion for fine wine and horses created Saddler's Creek Wines – named after a little creek located in the Upper Hunter.


Fast forward almost 35 years, and you'll discover a family-owned boutique winery creating memorable wine-tasting experiences that emphasize life's simple pleasures - spending time with family and friends, enjoying good food with great wine (of course!)

"Our cellar door experience has definitely evolved over the years based on what visitors tell us they want when coming to the Hunter Valley," says owner Wendy Laureti.

"People are seeking more than your typical wine tasting. They crave knowledge, yet they also want to unwind outdoors. So, we created beautiful wine garden spaces and reimagined our wine-tasting experiences to share knowledge in a relaxing and fun atmosphere." The Cellar Door is open daily, where visitors can tailor their wine tasting based on their preferences and choose from a broad selection of premium sparkling, white and red wines. If you are a red wine lover, the iconic Bluegrass Collection is a renowned favourite among guests and wine club members.

Those seeking to level up their wine knowledge can book for the weekly themed Wine and Food Pairing Masterclass. The wine expert will guide you through six featured wines presented side by side, allowing you to evaluate the nuances of each variety, style and vintage. Your tasting journey is matched to a curated Degustation Tasting Plate of six small bites to experience how each sip harmoniously pairs with each bite.

If you are travelling to the Hunter Valley over the weekend, Saddler's Creek Wines has an onsite food van run by Chef Jonathan Heath of Well Seasoned Catering. Enjoy the casual eats on offer, accompanied by live music on Fridays from 4pm–7pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 11am–4pm. Twilight Friday 'Wine & Chill' is the perfect way to kick start your weekend away. Unwind with good vibes and enjoy a great wine by the glass or bottle, delicious food and live music.

Saddler's Creek Wines also offers a beautiful picnic ground with picnic tables or BBQ facilities and stunning Brokenback Range vistas. The wine garden and picnic grounds are family and pet friendly.

You'll find Saddler's Creek Wines at 15 Marrowbone Rd, Pokolbin or online at
