Hanging Tree Wines

Perched on the most scenic ridge of Pokolbin in the sensational Hunter Valley. Hanging Tree features a prominent cellar door and luxury homestead accommodation

The Hanging Tree vineyard property consists of 40 undulating acres, eight of which are under four vine varieties: Chardonnay, Semillon, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. These vines are more than 15 years old, with our Shiraz vines the oldest at 45-50 years. This, coupled with the rich clay soil has contributed to the success of our award winning wines. 

The Cellar Door Hanging Tree Wines offers one of the most welcoming cellar doors in the Hunter Valley - housed within an old cow-shed and complete with a heritage Blacksmith's Cottage, Horse-whispering lodge, duck pond and French parterre-designed rose bed. The Hanging Tree stands tall at the entrance of the property - the site where beasts (and rumoured bushrangers) were hung. Our grapes are handpicked and handcrafted to produce various red, white, sparkling, sweet and fortified wines – all in our easy drinking, fruit driven style. We also produce olives and tapenades from our own olive grove on site, so pop in, try our award-winning wines, and see what else we have to offer! 

The Homestead The Hanging Tree Homestead, built in 2005, takes a commanding position on the 40 acre vineyard and comfortably sleeps 8 across the 4 suites. With captivating views overlooking the Broken Back mountain ranges, it is the perfect spot for your next getaway or function. Wedding Venue If you are looking for a wedding reception, ceremony and accommodation venue which feels more like a home than a wedding venue, then Hanging Tree Wines is for you. The property covers 40 magnificent acres, 8 of which are planted with Shiraz, Cabernet, Semillon and Chardonnay vines. The olive groves stretch around the crown of the hill and look over the valley to uninterrupted views of the Brokenback Range. 

You are invited to exchange vows surrounded by the beautiful views on offer at the Hanging Tree Wines property, where a traditional wedding of tranquility, exquisite wines, and natural beauty await in this Hunter Valley wedding destination.
