The stunning Cellar Door in the heart of Pokolbin proper is set amongst rolling hills and picturesque vineyards and is a multi-award winning establishment with a truly unique take on the cellar door experience. Recognised as the inaugural Cellar Door of the Year in 2007 and a winner once again of this coveted award in 2014, the ground breaking ‘edutainment’ approach to wine tasting makes it one of the most popular and successful destinations in the Valley.
All wines under the Tulloch label are made in a state-of-the-art facility, under the guidance of Jay and Christina Tulloch. Combining the principles of good winemaking with superior fruit and commercial expertise, the focus is firmly on vineyard and fruit selection.
The majority of the fruit is sourced from the fertile soils of the Upper Hunter Valley at Inglewood Vineyards, combined with small parcels of fruit from other selected Hunter and NSW vineyards. The vineyard situated on the banks of the Hunter River is a winner of the NSW Agriculture Hunter Vigneron of the Year Award and comprises of 400 acres of vines.
Enjoying a landmark viticultural site, the north-easterly aspect of the gently sloping red loam hillsides are ideally suited for growing the three principle white varieties in the Tulloch range, of Semillon, Chardonnay and the well recognised Verdelho. The soil ranges from alluvial river loam on the flats to well drained red sandy clay loams on the hills.
