Win fine wines from Gartelmann
of Lovedale in the Hunter Valley
The home of Gartlemann Wines is the beautiful Lovedale area of the Hunter Valley. From here the family-owned winery gathers together top quality grapes from the Hunter and beyond to hand-craft award-winning wines.
It's also home to their cellar door where the wines can be tasted in relaxing surrounds with friendly folk on hand to guide your tasting experience.
Check out the images of the cellar door. Imagine yourself sitting on that deck, looking out over the lake with the reeds waving in the breeze, the waterbirds paddling by and an array of Gartelmann wines lined up for tasting.
Add in a smiling and knowledgeable Gartelmann family member beside you to guide you through the wines, and your day is surely set!
To further entice you to visit the cellar door, we have four mixed half cases of Gartelmann wine to be won!
Gartelmann was founded in 1996 when the family bought one of the oldest vineyards in the Lovedale. Eleven years later the vineyard was sold and the family turned their focus to producing premium wines by sourcing quality fruit from the best vineyard sites from the Hunter, Mudgee, Orange and Rhystone regions.
The cellar door and Deck Café, as prime places to share their wine, were also given loving attention in their bushland setting. The cellar door has a light, airy feel and extends to a large covered deck overlooking the lake where you can sit and relax with your wines to taste.
You might also notice the magpie on the cellar door wall and wonder why a bird, surely a pest in vineyards, would be displayed so prominently. The magpie is actually one of the few birds that isn't a pesky visitor to the vines. Being insectivores, they're happy enough with this diet which in turn helps control the pests and diseases. It's all part of the natural wine making philosophy at Gartelmann and their like-minded fruit suppliers.
Next door the stylish Deck Café gives you a slightly different water view and serves up a diverse and delicious restaurant-style menu which is, of course, perfectly complimented by the Gartelmann Wines and a generous range of beverages.
Can't make it to Gartelmann's just yet for a tasting? Don't despair, we have four mixed half cases of their wines to give you a taste and a little more encouragement to call in!
