James Estate wines are built on a foundation of quality, experience and a sense of “place” that encapsulates the lifestyle and creative spirit of the Upper Hunter Valley.
James Estate is nestled into a pocket of the Upper Hunter Valley, which is approximately 3.5hrs drive from Sydney, set on a rise that takes in jaw-dropping views of Goulburn River and Wollemi National Parks. It’s a terrific setting for a winery and cellar door surrounded by the 200-plus acres of estate vineyards.
James Estate spreads across multiple sites in the Hunter Valley Region – our Cellar Door and Guest House in beautiful Pokolbin and Winery & Vineyard in Baerami, with plantings dating back to 1968.
There are 86 hectares “Under Vine” with 8 different varietals of grape.
At James Estate we know history and experience are important, but innovation is critical. We continue to build on our foundation of experience, creating sophisticated, contemporary, clever and elegant wines.
