The Hunter Valley is the home of Bonvilla Estate. It’s a region steeped in history, tradition and character, and where our passion for making the best wines possible has been perfected over the last few years. It all started with some land, a few vines and an idea to make a wicked drop of wine for people to share with loved ones.

Family at the Heart of it.

Nestled in the heart of the countryside, Bonvilla Estate is a tranquil oasis that’s perfect for a relaxing getaway or wine tasting. As a family-owned and operated business, our vision is to appeal to young wine enthusiasts, to couples with young families who want a no-worries winery experience with little ones in tow, right through to local and international travellers who are drawn to the heritage and beauty of the Hunter Valley.

From luxurious accommodation and beautiful entertaining spaces, to the harvesting and production of our very own award-winning wines – a visit to Bonvilla Estate is a not to be missed experience.

The Perfect Backdrop

The Hunter Valley was always the ideal location for us! Perfectly positioned for day trips from Sydney or Newcastle and the birthplace of Australian Wine, it really was a no-brainer. We are fortunate to be right in the pocket of where it all started! And while you may find some of the country’s best wines right under your noses, the region is home to so much more than just a bottle of wine. It is also known for its high quality food, artisanship and innovation. Sounds like the perfect weekend getaway, if you ask us…

Returning from Europe with 20,000 vine cuttings in 1832 James Busby was vital in helping establish the Hunter Valley as a key wine region and in turn vital in establishing Australia as a grape growing country.


We love how close knit the whole Hunter community is, and that there is always something on, be it a festival, a concert or a community celebration. There are endless reasons to visit the Hunter, and we feel incredibly lucky to be amongst it.
