2016 Burning of The Barrel!

The Glandore Burning of the Barrel has grown in reputation, and size, dramatically over the past few years. What started as a casual evening with a few friends and a couple of glasses of wine around a fire is now one of the "Bucket List" events in the Hunter Valley each year. The fires get bigger and more ridiculous, the lighting; from arrows to rockets, gets more creative, the food, the soups, the wine, the cheese, the live music, the bush poetry, it's all too much to miss!

This is a fantastic night under the Winter's night sky where you will enjoy the best the Hunter has to offer. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased direct from the winery. So grab a bunch of friends, a warm jacket and come and join us for the 2016 Glandore Burning of the Barrel. 

All the action from previous years can be seen on our Flickr page.

We recently sent out an email about the event to all our Cellarhand Members and Friends of Glandore. The full email details can be found here though a summary of the details is listed below. Hope to see you at the 2016 Burning of the Barrel.

Welcome to Glandore Estate Wines

Glandore Estate Wines was established in 2005 after the procurement of the original Brokenback chardonnay vineyard on Broke Rd. From day one the aim of Glandore Estate wines has been to produce wines of great character, regionality and style from the traditional varieties known in the Hunter Valley. This has been achievable through the strict selection of some of the Hunter Valley's most distinguished old vine vineyards. Thinking out side of the square we have also started to forge ahead with new and exciting varieties to the Hunter Valley such as our superb Tempranillo.

Our winemaking style is all hands on, from hand picking right through to the hand operated basket press, quality without compromise and a winery that is designed specifically for small batch production of the very best parcels of fruit.
