With some of the best views in the Hunter Valley, the property was also home to a vineyard full of Shiraz, yet Scarbie knew his money was on the Chardonnay. Whilst a bold move at the time, he made the decision to replant the entire vineyard. With the Chardonnay boom just around the corner, his slightly mad idea was about to pay dividends. Turning out their first vintage in 1987, from the family garage (what is still the cellar door today), and the Scarborough’s dream was in full motion.

Scarborough Wine Co. is one of the most recognized Hunter Valley wineries and a must visit cellar door experience. In 2011 a second cellar door was born; Scarborough on Hermitage, offering the extensive range in a different environment with the same attention to detail that can be found at the Gillards Road property.

They say home is where the heart is and the heart of their family business are their two cellar doors.
They invite you to choose a tasting experience that suits you.
At both their Cellar Doors they currently have a selection of their Offshoot, Classic and ‘The Obsessive’ Ranges available for tasting. When you arrive you can choose from their Offshoot Tasting, Classic Flight and the Get Obsessive Tasting. Our SIP Experience and all Group Tastings (9+ people) must be booked in advance.
