Choose your favourite James Estate wine at a Hunter Valley must-do, our Cellar Door and Bistro on Hermitage at Pokolbin. Under the huge Hunter Valley skies and the imposing Brokenback Range, our Cellar Door is the perfect environment to enjoy our exceptional wine, and of course food.

If there’s one thing we know how to do well at James Estate, it’s make a fabulous cheese platter, fire up the wood-fired pizza oven, and present sweet and savory dish delights.

Well, there are a few things we know how to do well. We also make great wine.

Group tastings are our specialty, and we know great cheese, food and good conversation makes the wine taste even better.


If platters or a light lunch is required, we’d love to welcome you to our James Estate Bistro on Hermitage. And, if you’d like to treat someone special, we can arrange a platter or meals and tasting … for just two!

The Bistro on Hermitage offers indoor and outdoor seating for up to 80 guests. For those on the run, takeaway pizza, salads, coffee and baked goods are also available.

Otherwise take a seat, and enjoy our expansive menu paired back with your favourite glass of James Estate Wine.


We are proud to open the doors to the James Estate Guest House, located on our Pokolbin property in the Hunter Valley.

Hosting five bedrooms and sleeping from eight to ten people, the James Estate Guest House offers reverse-cycle air, outdoor dining and BBQ, as well as a large entertainment room hosting all the essentials.
