Tours and Experiences Pokolbin


Hours: Sunday - Friday 10:00am - 4:00pm & Saturday 10:00am to 5:00pm

For the first time, visitors to the Hunter Valley will be able to taste the Trans-Tasman ventures of critically acclaimed winemaker PJ Charteris from a single location, with the opening of Charteris Wine Room in Pokolbin. PJ Charteris, who hails from New Zealand, has been crafting wines in the Hunter Valley for over two decades and Central Otago for over a decade. Charteris Wine Room gives visitors the chance to see the two wine regions he has a deep attachment to through his artisan wine range. With his partner Chrissi Pattison, PJ makes Shiraz, Semillon, and Chardonnay in the Hunter Valley, adding to their highly sought-after Pinot Noir and Riesling from Central Otago, all of which can be found at their newly opened Charteris Wine Room. “We make wines from two enigmatic wine regions, across two countries under the Charteris label. While the vinous similarities between the Hunter Valley and Central Otago aren’t obvious, when you taste them side by side there is an interesting story to tell” says PJ. “These contrasts and connections give us a unique lens through which we can tell our story of why we do what we do, giving visitors a new world wine perspective.”


Charteris Wine Room is situated in the heart of Pokolbin, at Peppers Creek Village. Chrissi and PJ chose the Pokolbin location largely because the small, yet close-knit community has been their home for 20 years. “This building was part of the original winery at Peppers Creek, we love that it’s also part of the history of the Hunter,” adds PJ. In the relaxed setting, guests are offered three tasting experiences from the full Charteris range. They might also choose to spend some extra time in Peppers Creek Village, where there are a number of specialty stores and cellar doors, as well as Cafe Enzo, where a Euro-inspired menu is created using local, seasonal produce. Bookings for tastings are available via our Charteris’ website.
