The Destination

Hope Estate draws a bigger crowd than any other destination in the Hunter. Our concerts draw some of the biggest names in the world. Elton John, Fleetwood Mac and Bruce Springsteen play here. In 2014 the Rolling Stones played the first winery show of their 60 year career, right here.

This place has been a ‘must visit’ for Hunter trips since Len Evans built it in the late 60’s. Owner Michael Hope took it to the next level, building an amphitheatre that holds 20,000 guests and expanding our hospitality services.

We offer an exciting range of estate grown Hunter wines from our vineyards at Pokolbin and Broke. There are also intriguing wines from our vineyards in Donnybrook, Western Australia, and Kyneton, Victoria.

Our Harvest Restaurant is one of the most delightful places in the Hunter to spend an afternoon, looking out across the valley and enjoying the innovative cuisine of Executive Chef Mert Tansu.

We’ve also just opened the Hope Brewhouse, with an amazing range of craft beers made right here in the building. You can taste any one of our 12 beers at the cellar door, with some fascinating limited-edition brews.

We’re right at the gateway to Pokolbin, a great place to meet up with your friends at the start or the end of your day in the Hunter.
