James Estate Wines are built on a foundation of quality, experience, and a sense of “place” that encapsulates the lifestyle and creative spirit of the Hunter Valley.

1142 - 1210 Hermitage Road, Pokolbin


Our grapes are 100% estate grown. This means every part of the process is in the hands of our highly experienced and innovative winemakers, Head Winemaker, Alex Finnie and Vineyard Manager, Daniel Maslen. 


James Estate spreads across multiple sites in the Hunter Valley and Sydney - our Cellar Door and Bistro on Hermitage in beautiful Pokolbin and Cellar Door and Vineyard in Baerami, with plantings dating back to 1968, as well as Parklea. 


We also have the James Estate Guest House on our Pokolbin property, making the James Estate experience unforgettable and rewarding. 


At James Estate we know history and experience are important, but innovation is critical. Watch this space as we build on our foundation of experience and create sophisticated, contemporary, clever and elegant wines. 


“Our plan for the future is to make wines that match well with food and to give advice on food that will match well with our wines”, says Alex.
