Outstanding wines of the Hunter Valley

Vines were first planted in the Hunter Valley in the early 1820s. The early wine pioneers - Wyndham, Lindeman, Drayton, Tyrell and Tulloch - established family-owned wineries that still operate today and over the years Australia’s oldest wine region has attracted innovative young winemakers.

The Hunter Valley has forged an international reputation for producing outstanding wines. The most recognised of these is the Hunter Valley Semillon. When young, it’s deliciously crisp with abundant citrus aromas and with age develops depth and richness with vanilla and honey flavours.
