Vinden Estate Wines

Established in 1990 by Guy and Sandra Vinden, Vinden Estate Wines is a family-owned, boutique Hunter Valley winery and vineyard located in Pokolbin.

Cellar Door

We have two labels - Vinden Estate and Angus' experimental label called the Vinden Headcase, balancing tradition with innovation.

We handcraft our wines (literally not figuratively) on-site at our Hunter Valley vineyard and winery from hand-picked grapes using the traditional methods of open fermentation, hand plunging and basket pressing, as well as incorporating the best of modern wine making techniques. We are passionate about the Hunter and source our grapes from the Hunter, either grown on our Estate vineyard or sourced from the famous Travena and Somerset vineyards.

Our range of wines includes the Hunter Valley’s only Alicante Bouschet (a light dry rosé), Sparkling Alicante Bouschet rosé, Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay, Merlot, Basket Press Shiraz, Alicante Bouschet and Tempranillo. Our wine is sold on-premise at our relaxed Pokolbin, Hunter Valley cellar door.
