“IT’S Australia’s oldest winegrowing region, and it’s right here in our own backyard.
The Hunter Valley was first planted to vine in 1833 by the Godfather of Australian viticulture, James Busby. Busby planted the Hunter’s first vines on his property near Branxton, known as Kirkton Estate.
Nowadays there are more than 140 wineries and cellar doors to visit in the Hunter Valley, each with their own unique story to tell.
Macquariedale and Krinklewood are two such wineries that tell an alternative Hunter wine story, because of the unique way they farm their property in order to grow their wines. Both wineries are farmed biodynamically, which means they treat the whole property, including the vineyard, winery and anything else living on the farm as one interconnected organism.”
