We think you’re going to love this place. It’s a boutique hotel with 10 rooms, set on an award-winning vineyard. In winter enjoy a roaring log-fire, a squashy sofa, a smooth bottle of wine. On warm days wander through French doors into the garden, dip into the salt-water pool, or play tennis. Sleep in the finest crisp white sheets and wake up to a fresh breakfast basket at your door.

Carriages Boutique Wine

If you appreciate hand-crafted, single vineyard wines, you’re likely to love Carriages.

Carriages produce consistently premium wines with single vineyard fruit from our Welly’s Block and Scarlett’s Promise vineyards, personifying the qualities of a boutique Hunter Valley wine company. All vineyard practices are done by hand and picked fruit is expertly crafted into Shiraz, Chardonnay and the occasional special release Rosé, by one of Australia’s finest wine-makers, Andrew Thomas.

Planted to vines in ’98 the vineyards are east-west running, sitting in rich alluvial clay soils on the picturesque privately owned estate.  We’re too small to make a less-than-exemplary wine so we’ll only produce a wine that year if the vintage conditions are spot on. Only 500 ish cases are released each year at cellar door. We invite you to join our wine club, to visit us, to stay on the vineyard, to take in the picturesque setting and enjoy our wines.
