Tintilla Estate is for everyone with a love of food, wine and family. One of the Hunter Valley’s best kept secrets this thoughtful family owned and run boutique winery, vineyard and olive grove is a leader in the burgeoning cellar door wine and food experience, established in 1993.
The winery cellar door has that wholesome family warmth that keeps people returning. A truly unique experience, at Tintilla you can take a seat across the table in their tasting room and sip from a large Riedel glass eating fresh bread with rich olive oil and biscuits to nibble, all whilst looking out over the magnificent rolling vineyard!
Olives are an important element of this grand estate with 5 varieties grown amongst the vineyard. Interestingly the olives were planted in 1994 before the vines and whilst Trophy winning wines flow from the 25 hectare estate Tintilla’s essence is that of about a vineyard which has managed to find that perfect blend of food, wine and family.
Good wine always starts with good grapes that reflect the natural balance between the land, the climate and the vines. At Tintilla, the aim is to deliver high quality fruit and make wine with minimal interference so that as much of the Hunter character is preserved. Winemaker James Lusby and his father Robert are passionate about the unique styles of wine that come from the Hunter terroir and seek to deliver true regional varietal wines.
