Fantastic hidden gem!
We visited this winery as a part of an organised winery tour and it was by far the highlight of our day. The wines were fantastic and the hosts were brilliant. I would encourage everyone to put this on their Hunter Valley itinerary, I will definitely be coming back to purchase some wines. We also got to taste their olive oils, balsamic vinegars and dukkah which were all as divine as their wines. I cannot praise the caramelised balsamic enough, will be eating on everything! So glad we got to visit.
A truly standout wine tasting experience
We had the pleasure of visiting Lucy’s Run winery last week just before Easter for a tasting. Our awesome host entertained and inspired us (and fed us amazing wine and cheese). To leave with such a warm lasting impression of a place and an atmosphere, and a desire to return there (and buy more wine!!), I think Lucy’s Run and its people are a pretty magical part of the Hunter Valley cosmos.
Great winery, lovely people
Came to Lucy’s Run for a tasting while touring through the Hunter Valley and it already started great when we were welcomed by a bunch of kangaroos jumping around on their lawn. It was busy with a group when we entered the cellar door, but owner Brad immediately greeted us and asked us to wait a bit. Later he told us all about the small winery and let us taste some of their great wines. The friendly and personal approach of Brad and Heather, together with their excellent wines, makes a visit to Lucy’s Run a must-do while touring through the Hunter Valley.
We came to Lucy’s Run with a Hens Weekend group. The hosts were amazing. They were friendly, vivacious, knowledgeable and fun. The wines were amazing as well as the cheese they offered from a nearby cheese maker. Our bus was filled to the brim with wine, balsamic vinegar, dukkah and all wonder of delights. A definite must see on your visit to the Hunter.
We visited Lucy’s Run as part of a small group tour as our last stop of the day. It was worth waiting for. The couple that own this winery are just lovely and made us feel right at home. This is probably the most unglamorous cellar door but the most welcoming and friendly. The wines were fabulous and very reasonably priced and although our mini bus was full everyone bought more at this stop. They also had some fantastic olive oil, dukkhah and caramelised balsamic vinegar – delicious! Well worth a visit! They are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10am until 5pm and on public holidays.
Such an amazing little place. Don't miss it.
This is one of the greatest hidden gems in the hunter valley. The owners are so passionate and lovely. Do not miss this place if you are in the area!!
On a weekend visit to the Hunter, Lucy’s Run was last on our way out to the freeway back to Sydney. But we were very pleased to visit this winery. Heather and Brad were the nicest owners / hosts we’d come across all weekend. Just a shame the other side of the shed doesn’t open to allow for the view to be shared with everybody who visits.
We were recommended to visit this winery on our last visit to the Hunter, and didn’t have time. So we made sure we’d visit this time around.
Don’t leave without at least one bottle of Sweet Sophie – best thing I’ve ever tasted.
The only downside, there was only a tree or portable toilet to visit. So chose not to. But we would still visit this winery again. It’s people like these that make a weekend visit worthwhile.

The Best Wine Tasting
It was the best because of our awesome host with the most, Heather, who is friendly and informative beyond comparison!! It was also the best because the wines are great, as is the very yummy olive oil, balsamic vinegar and dukkah. The line up at the shop was long 🙂
Thank you Heather and Brad, passionate winemakers!
Service with a smile
