James' Review

Ian Scarborough honed his white winemaking skills during his years as a consultant, and has brought all those skills to his own label. He makes three different styles of Chardonnay: the Blue Label is a light, elegant, Chablis style for the export market; a richer barrel-fermented wine (Yellow Label) is primarily directed to the Australian market; the third is the White Label, a cellar door-only wine made in the best vintages. The Scarborough family also acquired a portion of the old Lindemans Sunshine Vineyard (after it lay fallow for 30 years) and planted it with semillon and (quixotically) pinot noir. Scarborough has recently opened a second cellar door Scarborough on Hermitage at 972 Hermitage Rd, Pokolbin NSW 2320 (open Thurs-Mon 105). Exports to the UK and the US.

About this winery

Scarborough Wine Co

Home Grown Passion:

At Scarborough Wine Co it’s not just making wine. It’s a way of life. The Hunter Valley is our home and this is where the passion begins. To make the best wine we can, to share with you.

Since 1987 we have built the family business from grass roots to become one of the leading names in quality Hunter wine specialising in Chardonnay.

We now have two cellar doors where you can come for you to enjoy the home grown experience. The original cellar door on Gillards Road commands sweeping views over the Hunter Valley where you’ll receive a unique tasting experience.

Scarborough on Hermitage is our new, bright and contemporary tasting space, where you can taste, buy a hamper or even do a winery tour. Either way it will ensure you’ll be made to feel like family.

Our Home. Your wine.
