It’s about taste. The tasteful renewal of a historic Australia residence. The taste of world class local wines. And your taste for romance and relaxation.

With its gables, arched windows and long balconies, Peppers Convent certainly looks the part of a grand old Australian residence. But inside it welcomes you with modern conveniences and stylish décor. It’s the perfect place for ‘R and R’ – meaning romance and relaxation in this case – and it’s the ideal base if you’re a wine connoisseur interested in discovering, personally, the hundred or so fine vineyards for which Hunter Valley is renowned.

Of course, good wine should always be accompanied by great food. Peppers Convent obliges with the Pepper Tree Tasting Barn, Nine or nearby Robert’s Restaurant, all serving food prepared by recognised chefs using the freshest and most local of ingredients.
