What do you love most about your region?
The Hunter Valley is the oldest wine growing region in Australia and in 2028 we will celebrate 200 years of grape growing and winemaking. Our semillon and shiraz is world class, and innovative winemaking focuses on celebrating these varieties as single vineyards or even individual clones. Alongside these classic Hunter varieties, we are seeing more producers excel at growing and making alternative varieties. The Hunter Valley has a rich history and a bright future ahead.
