A visit to Mount Pleasant is a wonderful experience on many levels. The natural beauty of the location is framed by the backdrop of the stunning Brokenback Range and the scenery would have changed very little from the time of Maurice O’Shea.

Whether you visit to simply taste our incredible wines, to enjoy a meal or for something more auspicious like a wedding, we are confident that your experience will be everything you could hope for.

The winery, cellar door and restaurant are all surrounded by the famous vineyards that are the very reason for Mount Pleasant’s reputation as one of the truly great wine estates of Australia.

In recognition of our outstanding customer service, Mount Pleasant was recently named the Hunter Valley’s ‘Best Large Cellar Door’ in the 2014 Gourmet Traveller Wines’ Australia’s Best Cellar Door Awards as well as receiving a 2013 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.

“Wines and service are unsurpassed”

Reviewed April 30, 2012 by Vanmerino for Pokolbin

The reputation of this famous winery, based on the numerous medals and trophies says it all, but the wines really are magnificent. The service is also outstanding, lovely, happy, knowledgeable people who can’t hide their passion for wine and life. A Hunter Valley gem.


“Very impressive cellar door”

Reviewed 11 October 2013 by Lexus51

We have been to most, if not all, the Hunter Valley cellar doors and we rate McWilliams Mount Pleasant as one of the very best.

The range and quality of the wines available for tasting is superb and the staff are very obliging and knowledgeable. One of their very best wines was marked ‘not available for tasting’ but when our host discovered that I had a couple of bottles of their prized “O’Shea” wines at home, she had no hesitation in providing us with tastings of this wine.

The tasting area is airy and quite attractive and there is never any pressure to buy. We regard it as an ideal winery to take friends from interstate or overseas.
