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.

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.
