The Garden Cellars is undoubtedly an essential stop for beer lovers, but this expansive store located at Hunter Valley Gardens Shopping Village entrance (with plenty of parking) showcases so much more!
It's one of the oldest cellar door complexes in the Hunter Valley and walking through the door, you will certainly feel like you've stepped back in time a little. While the buildings that once housed tastings for Hungerford Hill still showcase a wide range of Hunter Valley reds and whites, its current tenant, The Garden Cellars, is known for more than just great wine (did we mention the beer?).
If you're looking for premium wines (including fortified wines), beers and spirits, The Garden Cellars stock products that are sure to cater to everybody's tastes.
With a range as extensive as the one on offer at The Garden Cellars, the staff certainly have plenty of products to stay up-to-date with - especially when it comes to the business's famed "Tunnel of Beer", which has become an essential stop for any beer enthusiast visiting the Hunter Valley. The Garden Cellars have also stayed true to the site's cellar door heritage, now acting as the main distribution and tasting point for Hunter Valley wineries Three Ponds, Monkey Place Creek and Polin & Polin.
The tunnel of beer is impressive, with over 800 different beers from around the world. If you can't find a beer that you love in the tunnel – then give up! The range includes beers, ciders, alcoholic ginger beers, gluten-free beers, alcohol-free beers and seltzers.
You'll find daily tastings of a range of tipples – from wine to vodka and everything in between. The Garden Cellars is open daily from 10am until 5pm, seven days a week. It’s best to book ahead at www.gardencellars.com.au – where you can even take a virtual tour.
