Our Gift Shop offers a selection of ‘house made’ condiments and chutneys including ‘Caramelised Balsamic Figs’, ‘Eggplant & Tomato Chutney’, ‘Roasted Marinated Olives’ and ‘Quince & Fig Paste’. The selection changes due to seasonality and availability of ingredients, so not all products are always available. We also offer a good range of the ‘Pukara Estate’ olive oils from the Upper Hunter Valley, including the very popular ‘Caramelised Balsamic Vinegar’. The shop also features our estate grown Shiraz, as well as our own label Chardonnay and Verdelho that are available for purchase through our Cellar Door licence between 9am and 5pm daily.

Hermitage Lodge Cellar Door

Hermitage Lodge is located in the heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country. Our four acre vineyard is planted with Shiraz vines and the wine is made by First Creek Wine Making, directly across the road from Hermitage Lodge.

What’s in a name...

The wine produced from the vineyards had been known as ‘Joshua Shiraz’ for many years, Joshua being the son of the previous owners. When the property was purchased we decided to change the name to Partners’ Pick, mainly because the partners/owners of Hermitage Lodge picked the grapes the first vintage.

  • Partners’ Pick Chardonnay, Partners’ Pick Shiraz and Partners’ Pick Verdelho are all available on the restaurant wine list.
  • The Chardonnay and Verdelho are sourced from some of Pokolbin’s finest vineyards.
  • All wines are crafted by First Creek Winemaking.
  • Wines are available for tasting and purchase through our Cellar Door license between 10am-5pm daily.

2009 Partners’ Pick Shiraz

This wine was matured in French and American Oak for 20 months prior to blending and bottling.  The wine is a deep ruby red colour with a nose of blackberry and plum with licorice and pepper spice.  On the palate, it is medium bodied and spicy with fleshy-ripe fruits and an elegant long finish.
