Among the Hunter Valley's many, many vineyards, Tyrrell's Wines is one of the region's big names. But it's still an independent, family-owned wine company that's been making excellent tipples since 1858. It's a hefty award-winner, too, nabbing more than 5650 gongs from various bodies over the past five decades alone.

When it comes to Tyrrell's vinos, variety is the key. It's perhaps best known for its Vat 1 semillon, as well as its other timeless drops in the prestigious Winemaker's Selection range; however the brand's overall selection is particularly sizeable. For fans of a fruity red, the Old Winery pinot noir is not only known for its cherry and strawberry scent, but also for a mushroom aroma. Yes, it goes nicely with meat dishes.

Located at Pokolbin, Tyrrell's cellar door operates seven days a week — and you can book in for a 45-minute tasting for $10 per person.
