Pendarves Estate is located in Belford, in the Lower Hunter Valley wine area of New South Wales. It was established in 1986 by 'the wine doctor' Dr Philip Norrie and his wife Belinda.

Pendarves Estate is situated on the unique Belford Dome of Limestone, which gives excellent quality fruit, so much so that after the third vintage in 1993, Pendarves Estate was the Most Successful Exhibitor for the current vintage at the Hunter Small Winemakers Wine Show and in 1994 it was the Most Successful Exhibitor for white wines. White wine styles made include Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay and a Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon blend. Red wine styles are Pinot Noir, Chambourcin, Shiraz and a Cabernet-Merlot-Malbec blend. The 1992 vintage of this wine was described by James Halliday, Australia's leading wine writer, as the best cabernet in Australia from a small vineyard.

1996 saw Pendarves Estate become the Most Successful Small Wine Producer-Grower at the Hunter Valley Boutique Winemakers Wine Show and have its verdelho voted the best in the Hunter Valley by Wine State magazine in their Hunter regional tasting. The 2003 Wine State tasting gave Pendarves two golds and six silvers.

In the last couple of years the Pendarves Chardonnay, Verdelho, Shiraz and Cabernet blend have all won trophies at the Hunter Valley Boutique Winemakers Wine Show. In 2003 Pendarves won three trophies at this show.
