Owner description: The Wilkinson's were true pioneers of the Australian winemaking industry. Despite two earlier ventures in Australia, the Wilkinson family returned after the brothers Frederick and John had studied winemaking in France and Germany. In 1866 the family acquired the present site of the Audrey Wilkinson vineyard. Living in tents, they cleared the land and planted vines which were sourced from the MacArthur Onslow property. By the early 1900s, Audrey Wilkinson collected awards around Australia for his Hock, claret and fortified wines. Large quantities were exported to London. Audrey committed to leading edge technology which, at the end of the 19th century, included open cement fermenters and steam powered crushers and hoppers. It was here the Audrey Wilkinson legacy was born.

“Fantastic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

One of the most beautiful scenarios in Hunter Valley. The wine is also as good as the view. The Friendly service makes it almost impossible not to buy a few bottles after tasting it.

“Beautiful place, wonderful wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

You need to drive along some unsealed road to get to this winery but it is well worth it. The views are spectacular, the wines are great and the tasting experience was very enjoyable with a knowledgable and personable host. The tasting room is beautifully set out giving a very interesting outline of the winery's history. Of the eight wineries we visited during our stay, this was the best.
