About Lovedale

Lovedale is located in the heart of the Hunter Valley due east of Pokolbin. This picturesque is well known for its award winning wines from large and small boutique wineries, lovely guesthouses, superb restaurants, and art galleries. For the outdoor enthusiast activities include golf, horse riding, hot air ballooning, bush walking and many other sports.

Lovedale is host to several events during the year, including the famous Lovedale Long Lunch held each year on the third weekend in May. Several of the local wineries also hold their own events including Country Music in the Vines, String Quartet in the Vines, olive oil promotions, pasta classes and special events to mark the release of a new vintage.

Wine making in Lovedale dates back to the early 1800s when local wheat and produce farmers turned to grape growing. Lovedale was named after one of the early families, the Loves, who had fond memories of the dales of Yorkshire. The Lovedale area was found to be particularly suitable for vineyards and with its proximity to the Old North Road to Windsor made it ideal for wine making.
