Attraction Details
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.

“lovely wine, but no food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

The location of the vineyard is beautiful and the views are magnificant. Wine is lovely and we bougth a nice bottle for later and that was even better. It is a pitty that they had no food what so ever. It should have been nice to have a light lunch overlooking the vineyards.

“Beautiful visit again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Went again for my beautiful, they should really have a cafe or restaurant to sit and enjoy that amazing view. Bought some beautiful light shiraz wines for summer. Look forward to next visit.

“Great wines and great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Did the usual visits to a lot of wineries in the Valley but one that does stand out not only for their excellent wines with some new and unusual mixes but the views over the valley makes it a worth while visit even if you don't drink wine, there is a great museum on the history of the winery going back into the last century and how it all started, they are very good with the amount for the tasting too, definately one of the best in the area and one of the oldest
