The Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest wine region. It is an Australian wine region that is defined by its rich historical tapestry. Famous Australian wine names like Len Evans, Audrey Wilkinson, Maurice O’Shea, Murray Tyrrell, and famous wine families like Drayton, Tulloch and McWilliams are all borne of the Hunter Valley and its winemaking traditions.
In a rugged and unforgiving environment, they helped lay a foundation of hard work and determination for the Australian wine community. Today this legacy is continued by many familiar names complimented by a new generation of innovative young winemakers.
