Hunter Valley Wine Country has several different regions, each with its own character and features. Every region is beautiful and close to each other so you can’t really make a wrong decision! Here are some wedding reception venues in areas other than Pokolbin, Lovedale and Wollombi.

Two of our other favourite Hunter regions we wanted to call out:


The Broke/Fordwich region is about a 20 minute drive out of the centre of Pokolbin and a 30 minute drive from Wollombi. This region’s tagline is ‘the tranquil side of the Hunter Valley’ and its one of our favourite areas of Wine Country.

It has amazing scenery – with the Brokenback Mountain range and Yellow Rock providing a beautiful backdrop – and its quietly gaining traction for being a premium food and wine destination. They have a fun, yearly event celebrating everything Italian-inspired with the A Little Bit of Italy in Broke festival.

One of the best restaurants and wedding venues in the Hunter Valley, Margan, is here. Krinklewood Winery is just down the road and is one of the prettiest cellar doors we’ve ever seen!

There’s a good selection of restaurants, cafes, all types of accommodation plus you can still do all the usual wine tours but you’re a bit more removed from the thick of Pokolbin, so it’s a great option for a couple looking for a tranquil wedding location that’s still got that gourmet and luxury feeling.

Mount View

Mount View is such a pretty little section of Hunter Valley Wine Country with venues like Briar Ridge and Bistro Molines. There are boutique cellar doors and small group accommodation. You can create an intimate and unique wedding here and it’s about a 20 minute drive from the heart of Pokolbin so you have the option to either have all your guests stay in Mount View itself or in Pokolbin.
