Around Hermitage Pokolbin

A particularly scenic province, fully appreciated when meandering our winding cycleway from one tasting room to the next. The trail for iconic Hunter Shiraz and Semillon, as well as new and exciting varieties. Where the stand-out wines, spirits and craft beers you can’t leave without, are conveniently delivered to your retreat. Picnic in vineyard landscapes stretching far into the foothills of the Brokenback Ranges. Explore antiques or enjoy lawn games whilst wine tasting. Chase down small farm cheese or try your hand at making some. Let off steam in a smash room or luxury spa. All the while working up an appetite for our local food artistry, long table lunching, and views from every table.

Here's how

From Sydney, take the M15 expressway to arrive at the Around Hermitage experience in just two hours.

Once you’re in Wine Country, follow the RED trail in the North Western side of Pokolbin to find yourself surrounded by some of the most spectacular landscapes in the valley. 

Once around the block

Highly prized vineyard blocks yielding small quantities of seriously good reds will have you hungry for more of the Around Hermitage Wine and Food Trail. Really connect with our scenic rural landscapes, exploring 35km of cycleway connecting family-run cellar doors and signature wineries. With rolling green hills in all directions, you’ll find the food Around Hermitage hinges on seasonality. Our award-winning chefs will treat you to an authentic taste of the local terroir, with free range and fresh-picked produce sourced from surrounding small farms. Be tantalised by tapas to share, dynamic cooking with fire, heirloom recipes enjoyed at an Italian family table, decadent grazing hampers for picnics in the vines, and chic European bistro-style dining. Enjoy the unexpected, like a peek behind the scenes at a craft brewery, a bounty of small batch wines assembled for tasting under one roof, delving into the secrets of a distiller, finding your pet is welcomed at some very swanky stays, or that solving your way out of an escape room with a close-knit group of mates can be every bit as invigorating as that spa-time solitude you’ll treat yourself to back at the resort.

With so much to fill your days here, you’ll want to stay Around Hermitage, in a hidden-away cottage shared only with wild kangaroos, a grand old homestead with crackling fire, sheer luxury in a five star retreat, an intimate guesthouse, or wake on a working farm in self-contained family comfort.
