The birth place of Hunter Valley wine Dalwood Estate is meticulously groomed to showcase the glorious natural beauty of Australia’s oldest, riverfront vineyard.
Dalwood Estate is the Queen of Hunter Valley wedding venues, with undulating vineyards resting along the banks of the Hunter River, waiting to entertain guests and impress with her grace and beauty.
Dalwood Estate (formerly known as Wyndham Estate) has recently re-opened under its original name, paying homage to its history as one of the oldest vineyards in Australia, first established in 1828. The vineyard has been meticulously groomed to showcase the glorious natural beauty of Australia’s oldest, riverfront vineyard.
The expansive function centre and cellar door was built in 1904 from local sandstone hand-cut by convicts. It looks out over lush vineyards that make a stunning backdrop for a perfect wedding.
The vineyards offer spectacular settings for photographs with flourishing vines, historic buildings, open green fields or the gently flowing river. The function centre features a number of rooms that can be styled for small or large functions or if you prefer, a marquee overlooking the vineyards can be perfectly positioned to take advantage of the tranquil ambience.
Dalwood’s events are catered superbly by two-hatted chef Chris Thornton from Restaurant Mason or by renowned restaurant MEET. Wines are from the home-grown Hunter Valley vines of Dalwood, Hungerford Hill and the legendary Sweetwater.
The estate has a dedicated event planner and event stylist who will bring your vision to life, perfecting even the most minor detail.
Our venue was just beautiful. We wanted a venue that had both a great ceremony spot and excellent reception space. Wyndham Estate had both and also an amazing wet weather option for the ceremony (we didn't need it though).
The staff were so lovely and every time we visited the venue we felt at home with everyone. Such a lovely team to deal with in the lead up to our wedding.
Perfect venue for a Bride and Groom wanting excellent wine, food and staff.
Thank you Wyndham Estate for everything!!

Dear Melissa Thank you for your kind words. We absolutely loved hosting you and your guests. Make sure you come and visit us again. We wish you all the best. Events Team
Beautiful location and venue, food was delicious and plenty of. All of our guests were commenting about delicious the food was and that there was plenty of. The function co-ordinator was most accommodating and ensured our reception ran smoothly on the night.
Thank you so much Natasha, we are so glad you had a lovely time.
The setting is spectacular, one of the best in the Hunter. Although it rained on the day, their indoor option for the ceremony had to be one of the best - the Cask Room (the outdoor venues we could not use are amazing also). But luckily, the rain cleared for our photos and were able to utilise some of their numerous picturesque backdrops (eg, vines, panoramas, Dalwood House).
Hanna and Stephanie were crucial to the day going well, and the fact that we organised the whole thing in three months made no difference to the quality of anything. Andrew the Chef created a share-platter menu which was a big hit with all our guests, as they appreciated being able to try everything, not just what was plonked in front of them. Food was very important for us, so their seasonal approach appealed to us and it was great to hear our guests raving about the food the next day.
Overall, a great venue, amazing service, extremely accommodating staff - we could not have asked for more.
