Mount View

Tilt the sunroof to hear the Bellbirds as you wind your way up through hill country South of Pokolbin, to hidden-away Mount view. Where rising mists reveal a tapestry of terraced vineyards, and the cellar doors of adventurous winemakers, cradled high in the rainforest canopy. Vivid red soils give rise to exemplary Hunter Shiraz, Semillon, Chardonnay and Verdelho, alongside small parcels of Mediterranean varieties like Fiano. Vermentino and Sagrantino. Lunch alfresco with uninterrupted views of green slopes under vine, unwind in an open air day spa, stay in wonderfully private wilderness luxury, and you’ll feel worlds away.

Weave your way here

Your destination is on the Southern tip of Pokolbin, just 2 hours drive North West from Sydney. Follow Wine Country Drive through Nulkaba to Mount View Road, then weave your way to the hilltops, taking in vistas so beautiful you’ll be happy to meander at a leisurely pace.

Taking you to new heights

On a clear day, from lookouts all the way to the summit of Mount View, you can see clear to Mount Sugarloaf, the Watagans, and in Winter the snow-capped peaks of Barrington Tops.

Your adults-only stay may look like being whisked away by private charter chopper from your retreat on the edge of the escarpment, to explore the many and varied wine styles that are unmistakably Mount View. Or sitting pretty in blissful seclusion at your luxury villa deep in Eucalypt forest, where your only visitors will be native wildlife. Even the spa experiences here are immersive in natural rainforest surrounds. 

Every restaurant table awards the best views in the house and you’ll be made to feel like a regular by hosts with a gift for intuiting a menu selection and wine choice you’ll be particularly taken with. Enjoy European ambiance at one the Hunter’s legendary hatted dining establishments, a graze plate or soft cheese selection created to complement the distinctive character of our wines, or grab something to go from a food truck and keep tasting your way through the many lively varietals that thrive at these dizzying altitudes. Should you crave a little spice, excellent Asian food is to be found alongside bistro classics.

As the many tightly-held secrets of Mount View unfold to you, it’s hard to imagine a more idyllic destination and it’s all right here in the Hunter Valley.
