Amidst the hustle and bustle of the Hunter Valley Wine Country, a small but distinct valley has been quietly producing some of the best fruit the Hunter Valley has to offer. With a discrete microclimate and seasonal changes different from the rest of the Valley, the alchemy of a little area known as Mount View has been blending its unique "terrior" of free draining clays over limestone substrate.
Tallavera Grove represents the culmination of decades of experience and research by Geologist Dr John Davis. It is one of four premium vineyards owned by the Davis family of Mount View, known as the Davis Premium Vineyards. The vineyard has been providing fruit for trophy winning wines for some of the Hunter's most successful wineries for 20 years.
The Tallavera Grove cellar door at Mt View is the Hunter Valley home of the wines from select parcels of the Davis Premium Vineyards in Orange, NSW (Carillion Vineyard), Wrattonbully, South Australia (Stonefields Vineyard) and the base vineyard at Mount View, Hunter Valley. Since opening we have attained a 5 star rating with the Australian Wine Companion and been recognised with numerous trophies and medals at wine shows all around the country.
In October 2008, legendary Hunter Valley chef Robert Molines moved up to Tallavera Grove to open his latest restaurant "Bistro Molines". The restaurant's dedication to quality has seen them recognised with a Chefs Hat in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 4 years running. Robert, his wife Sally and their tight knit team have also made that special day even more special for hundreds of groups and couples in co-ordinating and catering for all weddings and functions held at Tallavera Grove.
It is a simple recipe for a great Hunter Wine and Food experience: 5 Star rated Vineyard with select wines from estate vineyards in 3 top viticultural regions, a Chef's Hatted Restaurant and one of the best vineyard outlooks available.
We look forward to welcoming you to our enchanting cellar door sometime soon.
