Cockfighter’s Ghost Cellar Door


The Legend states that in 1835, Governor Macquarie directed explorers to find routes to open up the Hunter Valley. One wild and windy night, as the explorers attempted to cross a flooded creek, their strongest horse – Cockfighter – drowned bravely trying to get his rider across the raging waters.

When convict gangs were later sent to construct a bridge over what was now known as Cockfighter’s Creek, they swore that on stormy nights you would see Cockfighter’s Ghost galloping free across the countryside.

A visit to the spacious contemporary Cockfighter’s Ghost Cellar Door is one of the highlights of a visit to the Hunter Valley. It is located on the historic Post Office Vineyard and is surrounded by the region’s oldest shiraz vines dating back to the 1890’s which makes their Flagship Poole’s Rock Shiraz.
