First settled in 1865 Glandore sits at the base of the Brokenback Range on Broke Rd in the famed Hunter Valley region of New South Wales. Blessed by a unique terroir and with access to some of the Hunter’s most distinguished ‘old vine’ vineyards our wines are fastidiously made and distinguished by their remarkable character and intensity of flavour.
Boasting a 150T winery onsite, all our wines are crushed, fermented, and vinified by our winemakers. They are by nature handmade and deliver both intensity of flavour and complexity with rare finesse. Selecting fruit from the Hunter Valley, Hilltops and Tumbarumba regions of NSW our winemakers are crafting wines and styles that perfectly represent these places. The right grapes from the right region allows us to pour you the best wines possible.
Whenever you choose to visit us, our “Hunter Valley Cellar Door of the Year” tasting room is a truly 5-star experience. The cellar door team are all passionate about wine and will guide you through a bespoke tasting experience while nestled amongst the vines of the beautiful Hunter Valley.
We are always keeping an eye out for interesting new varieties, though our core range of traditional classics and contemporary alternate varieties keeps our winemakers invigorated and our cellar door experience fresh and enticing.
The perfect way to enjoy Glandore wines is with friends and great food but the best way to get your hands on them is by becoming a Cellarhands Member. With first options on new releases, dinners, special events and wines made just for you, we offer an enviable wine journey for all our members.
Meet The Team
Here from the get-go, Duane is our fearless leader and while wine is his love, AFL flows in this man’s veins. He bleeds Yellow & Black and lives and dies by the mighty Richmond footy club. As much at home on the pans as he is in the winery, his career as a chef gave him an unsatiable appetite for amazing food and great wines. An ability to recall just about every wine he has shared over the years, his knowledge brings intangible wealth to the Glandore team.
Hailing from WA and cutting his teeth in the wineries of Margaret River and Tasmania before settling in the Hunter Valley you won’t find Nick too far from the beach searching for uncrowded waves when there is down time to be had. Never far from a glass of chardonnay Nick prefers to be covered in grapes than reading his emails. He’s always there when the heavy lifting needs to happen. Doesn’t mind a few hours on the golf course either.
