Bonvilla Estate

Bonvilla Estate, Pokolbin

With five bedrooms sleeping up to 10 guests, the Bonvilla Estate is the ultimate Hunter escape for friends and family. The team have lovingly created a welcoming villa set on 100 acres in the middle of the Pokolbin, where people can come together and relax.

Upstairs, sit around the large dining table, or relax on one of the luxurious leather lounges. Downstairs is a second living area, with an informal dining table, that extends onto the outdoor area. The villa includes a kitchen, barbecue and laundry.

Guests can enjoy the sunrise over the haze-covered shiraz vines, enjoy a morning coffee as the hot air balloons ascend in the distance. Afternoons can be spent lazing on the deck, overlooking the vineyards with a glass of wine in hand. Private tastings and cheese boards can also be arranged.

Bonvilla Estate semillon, verdelho, chardonnay, shiraz and muscat are all available for tasting at the newly renovated cellar door. The space is filled with light, high top bars and brought together with a stunning fireplace. A magical place to experience the Hunter Valley. Book your tasting experience.
