All the wines you love from the Hope Estate range including our famous Ripper Shiraz are available for tasting and sales through our cellar door. Visitors can enjoy a personalised tasting experience with our friendly and knowledgable staff in the unforgettable and unique surrounds of this historic Hunter Valley site.

Since then he has taken the estate to a new level, creating an amphitheatre that holds 20,000 guests, becoming the Hunter’s premier wine destination. Our stunning Great Cask Hall is like nothing else in the Hunter Valley, rich in history and unforgettable atmosphere. 59 enormous wine filled casks line the walls, signed by a who’s who of Hunter wine legends. Corporate wine games and a lot more. We can host up to 800 people in style.

The venue offers six different event spaces for your special occasion. With its spectacular grounds and unique function spaces, our guests now consider Hope Estate an ideal location to host a corporate event. Some conference groups visit the Hunter Valley only to sit in hotel function rooms, never having the opportunity to experience what Wine Country can offer.
