Thanks to the dedication and innovation of long-standing winemaker families and young entrepreneurs that are unafraid of experimenting, the Hunter Valley wine scene is leaps and bounds ahead of its competition.
The pioneers first began planting vineyards in this region in the 1800s and most of them are still in operation today, having been handed down the family line for generations. Some of the oldest winemakers are Tulloch, Lindeman and Drayton – all wineries that are managed by fifth generations and Vat 1 Hunter Semillon fame, Tyrrell’s Vineyards that have been operating since 1963.
