Hanging Tree Wines
Nestled in an original Parish of Pokolbin property with a host of antique history, Hanging Tree Wines offers premium wines and premium service in a historic setting with stunning views out every doorway.
The Hanging Tree vineyard property consists of 40 undulating acres, eight of which are under four vine varieties: Chardonnay, Semillon, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. These vines are more than 15 years old, with their Shiraz vines the oldest at 45-50 years. This, coupled with the rich clay soil has contributed to the success of their award winning wines.
The Hanging Tree Cellar Door (once a cow shed) is decorated with antiques and vintiques and warmly welcomes all with its rustic charm. If you are lucky, you might be greeted at the front gate by their welcoming party, Vodka and Muscat – their residential golden Labradors!
Their vineyard is lovingly cared for and maintained by Michael Wright, one of the most experienced viticulturist in Hunter Valley. The land itself is surrounded by the Brokenback Mountain Range and the very foundations of their vineyard feature rich volcanic soil and red clay that ensure that their grapes are nurtured into maturity in the ideal conditions.
