James' Review

Bimbadgen's Palmers Lane vineyard was planted in 1968 and the McDonalds Road vineyard shortly thereafter, both sites providing a source of old vine semillon, shiraz and chardonnay. Since assuming ownership in '97, the Lee family has applied the same level of care and attention to cultivating Bimbadgen as they have to other properties in their portfolio. The small but impressive production is consumed largely by the owner's luxury hotel assets, with limited quantities available in the Sydney market. Exports to the UK, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Japan, Taiwan and China.


Located high on a hill in the heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country, Bimbadgen is a striking winery and vineyard encompassing an expansive Cellar Door, award-winning Esca Bimbadgen Restaurant, outdoor amphitheatre, café, modern tasting rooms and accommodation all in the one stunning location.
