Ben Ean, which was formerly Lindeman's Estate, is synonymous with fine wines.

It was purchased by the McGuigan & Peterson families in 2017 & are dedicated as well as very passionate about maintaining & building on the great quality that the 174-year-old winery has enjoyed throughout its long history, as a tribute to some of the best-known viticulturists & winemakers in the Hunter Valley for the last 170 years.

Major refurbishing has taken place throughout the cellar door, restaurant, functions, Still House, gift shop & winery areas in the last 5 years.

There is a fantastic range of wines available at the cellar door for tasting & purchase, that caters to many a varied palette.

Labels that include:

Somm & Peterson Wines, ensures that there is something for everyone to enjoy with friends at that special dinner party or family gathering, at home.

The Baume Restaurant offers a casual family-style dinning experience, where they source the freshest & best local ingredients for their signature shared dishes.

The pizza dough is made in house, then left to prove for 3 days before being hand rolled & baked in the Moretti Oven, giving it a delicious, authentic flavour.

This can be topped off by indulging in the hand-crafted desserts, tea, coffee, or Liqueur afterwards.
