Food and wine in Pokolbin
The most beautiful natural scenery makes for stunning surroundings for Pokolbin's luxury, boutique accommodation. This town produces highly acclaimed gourmet food and some of the finest wines in the world.
Set among vineyards and with the Brokenback Range as its backdrop, Pokolbin is the village centre of the Hunter Valley wine region. The pretty country roads around Pokolbin are home to some of Australia's most well-known wine labels, making it a veritable wine lover's paradise.
The area has grown into one of the most desirable short-break destinations from Sydney and Australia's most popular wine tourism region. Restaurants and accommodation in Pokolbin are varied and sophisticated. Stay in a cosy B&B, luxury guesthouse or spa retreat before heading out to meet local winemakers, see how wine is made, and sample local drops at free cellar door tastings. For a romantic weekend getaway, stay at The Dairy Cottage at Ballabourneen Wine Co.
There are so many other things to do in Pokolbin, too. Choose a wine tour that tickles your fancy, or go it alone. You can travel at a leisurely pace by bike or in a horsedrawn carriage. Shopping, hot-air balloon rides and championship golf courses offer plenty of relaxation and enjoyment. Nearby towns, including Cessnock, Lovedale and Maitland, are also well worth a visit.
