Hunter Valley winery Mount Pleasant has reopened its cellar door and vineyard to the public after renovations.
The establishment has undergone a major rebranding and reimagination in honour of legacy founder Maurice O’Shea.
“Maurice O’Shea and Phil Ryan were winemakers who changed the dynamic of the
Hunter Valley,” says Chief Winemaker Adrian Sparks.
“To be given an opportunity to follow in their footsteps, to walk those same
vineyards, and to have a hand in designing new wine experiences and debut exciting
ventures like the cellar door is thrilling.”
Visitors can now participate in new wine tasting experiences along with a revamped food offering.
Newly appointed Head Chef Kyle Whitbourne has collaborated with Concept Hospitality’s Justin North to curate menu of Meditteranian-inspired dishes made from local produce.
The selection of smaller and larger share plates are designed to accompany wine tastings or to have with a bottle.
Shiraz styles are enhanced by dishes such as the wild boar and fennel salami.
Guests can choose from one of five themed tastings including the Mount Pleasant experience which highlights the unique vineyards on the estate and the Maurice O’Shea Flight, consists of four vintage shiraz.
Mount Pleasant is open Thursday to Monday from 10am until 5pm.
