The young lady that completed the wine tasting with us was great. We felt we were left sitting for long periods of times as she had to attend to other tables as well.

We were in the Hunter Valley for a wedding and needed a lunch venue close by and knew this would be a great place to go.

My friend and I really enjoyed our wine tasting. The service and environment was fabulous, not to mention the amazing wine. Definitely a new favourite! We do have to give a shout out to a very friendly man who, during the worst part of Friday afternoon’s storm, gave us umbrellas and followed us to our car while getting absolutely soaked. We think his name is Richard? What a nice guy and such a nice thing to do! Overall 10/10 experience!

We had a lovely CoVID wine tasting followed by pizza on the terrace on Melbourne Cup Day. We were the only people there and it felt like a private lunch. Staff were fabulous!

We were there for a wine tasting and service was top notch. We were allowed to taste all the wines on the list and no pressure to buy, although we bought two bottles. No food was provided or asked for so cannot rate the food there.

My friends and i were visiting Hunter Valley and we booked a wine tasting at Bimbagen because it was one of the few wineries that would take a booking for ten people (covid). The staff were super nice and lovely and the moscato was delicious. Most, if not all, left the place with a bottle of that and because we bought a bottle, we didn't have to pay for the wine tasting. Thank you for the lovely experience!

I have been a member for only a short time. I found I only slightly liked one of the wines so it was not really a great experience as far as the wines were concerned. The ambience was okay but a fair amount of noise for the amount of people in the venue. The people were friendly which was nice. However, as I like sweet wines, I have found that this is not the winery for me. If you like dry wines you will like this winery.

My only complaint was having to pay different tasting fees for different wines, most other cellar doors have a flat fee for an entire tasting.
Note, no food was consumed but a rating was mandatory.

Had some snacks during the tasting, one of the pizzas and the charcuterie board.. both disappointing!
Service was nice and friendly.
Wines are alright.. nothing mind blowing! But overall a pleasant experience.

Wine Tastings - customer service very poor and not interested in us at all. During each tasting she went off to clean the bench. We did make appointment so they were expecting us. Very disappointed.

First time at Bimbadgen for over 10 years and was just as enjoyable. The staff were very informative, pleasant and the wines were very enjoyable. The only sad point was the stairs leading to and from the cellar. My wife fell on the way up, but again the staff could not have been more helpful or concerned. Will definitely go back again.

Unfortunately we did not have a great tasting experience on the weekend. Booked in for 230pm on Sunday 26th. Arrived and was very confused where the tasting was occurring, and the information was not clear. Eventually realised it was at the restaurant. We got to speak to two women throughout who told us what we were drinking and to “enjoy”. No further interaction regarding the wine, no description, no check in, nothing really. Felt like we were just plopped in the middle of diners and big groups. Mentioned at the end we only wanted to pay for the tasting and we felt a little forgotten throughout. No mention of anything took payment and that was it.
Disappointing

Limited menu. We hadn’t realized they ha just pizza on the menu, otherwise we wouldn't have booked! And the pizza quality is the level of Domino’s! From frozen dough. Horrible!
