Wine Tasting...Reimagined

At Briar Ridge, we believe that just like our palates, each visitor is unique.  While some visitors want a traditional wine tasting, others just want a great day out.  The common denominator being that wine is for enjoyment.   It’s with this mantra in mind that we’ve created a variety of unique wine tasting experiences to appeal to all wine lovers. 

So set your map to Mount View and reward your curious nature. 

A unique tasting experience.

Good things come to those who wander.

The Tasting Bar
Pull up a bar stool and taste your way through our extensive wine list of Hunter classic wines and modern marvels, with a Mount View twist!  This is the spot where many of our visitors find their new favourite wine and banter with our friendly cellar door staff about wine or generally anything.

The Wine Deck
A long-heralded favourite of day-trippers and members alike, our alfresco tasting deck has it all – garden and mountain views, single and group seating arrangements and table service.  There’s no need to come up to the bar here, we’ll bring the wine to you.  The perfect place to enjoy a lazy morning or afternoon wine tasting.  Order a delicious cheese or antipasto platter and stay a while…

The Wine Garden
A favourite tasting experience among many.  Complete with jute rugs and comfortable outdoor lounges, visitors can kick back and soak up the serenity and mountain views while enjoying a wine and one of our famed cheese or antipasto platters.
