WE KNOW: Spicers Guesthouse, Pokolbin

Spicers Guesthouse sits in wine country in New South Wales’ Hunter Valley, and The Events Authority’s Jen Waters visited recently.

“The stunning Spicers Guesthouse is located in Pokolbin, in the heart of Hunter Valley, just two hours north of Sydney—perfect for weekends away, functions and events, even business off-sites,” said Jen.

Spicers boasts 49 accommodations—45 rooms and suites, and a four-bedroom cottage—and is set on 40 acres of grounds overlooking the surrounding ranges and neighbouring vineyards.

“The attention to detail is flawless,” noted Jen.

The property’s on-site restaurant, Éremo, serves modern Italian cuisine.

“Éremo’s menu features delicious, contemporary Italian dishes made with locally sourced produce. And, as you might expect, there’s an extensive cellar of local wines to compliment the cuisine,” said Jen.

A stunning private dining room caters for up to 14 guests, offering a unique experience for small special occasions while the variety of larger spaces are ideal for weddings and conferences.

Spicers Guesthouse offers five contemporary venue spaces with a total capacity of 120. The main room – Tallawanta – accommodates up to 80 in cabaret style.

The Hunter Valley is home to many fabulous experiences. Jen enjoyed a wine tasting at the nearby Keith Tulloch winery in Pokolbin.

“This is a great venue for an offsite lunch or dinner, offering a perfect relaxed setting, amazing cuisine and fabulous wines,” said Jen.

Back at Spicers, guests can take part in a Wine Wall sampling ‘tour’—a one-hour grazing and tasting session guided by one of the resident wine experts. There are also cycling options, private picnics, hot air ballooning experiences and more.
