Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

New South Wales

Home to 14 official wine regions, New South Wales offers a diverse and wide-ranging expanse to produce wines that appeal to every palate.

From Australia’s oldest continuous wine region – the famous Hunter Valley – to exciting new cool climate regions such as Orange, the Southern Highlands and Tumbarumba, these regions can be found to produce some of the best Australian Wine around. Recognised as the second-largest wine-producing state in Australia, New South Wales is also the most populous state with its wine consumption far outpacing the region's wine production. Although the Hunter Valley region is well known, the majority of wineries are located along the Murray and Darling Rivers (in the south-east of the state) which supplies water for many of the region's wineries.

Other regions within New South Wales include the Canberra District, Cowra, Gundagai, Hastings River, Hilltops, Mudgee, New England, Perricoota, Riverina and the Shoalhaven Coast.

Tumbarumba

Situated on the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, surrounding the town of Tumbarumba, this wine region ranges from 300-800 meters in altitude. With the first vineyards planted in 1982 this appellation is more-or-less evenly split between red and white varietals. Tumbarumba's signature wines are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for sparkling and table wines. In recent years, the newer plantings include Merlot, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Shiraz and Viognier. The latter varieties helped by the warm dry seasons experienced in the region. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir make up around 80% of the total plantings. The region is reputed as New South Wales’ coolest climate grape-growing appellation with the majority of grapes produced in the region sold onto the major wine companies. Small parcels of fruit do stay in the area with a select number of growers producing under their own labels.

About the brand Hungerford Hill

Established in 1967, Hungerford Hill is a boutique estate in the Hunter Valley. Australia’s oldest wine region. Hungerford Hill has a proud reputation for producing distinguished wines and providing a memorable cellar door experience. Guided by accomplished Winemaker Bryan Currie, Hungerford Hill’s able team produce authentic wines, packed with character and interest, with a focus on New South Wales’ cool climate regions.

In early December 2016 Sam Arnaout purchased Hungerford Hill and will continue the focus on the NSW regions of the Hunter Valley, Hilltops and Tumbarumba. Sam’s vision for Hungerford Hill is to have a much greater focus on the Hunter Valley. To further this goal in 2016 he purchased the renowned Sweetwater vineyard and property near Belford, and the former Wyndham Estate property including the vineyard and winery buildings at Dalwood. The historic Dalwood house is located on the property and is owned by the National Trust.

Hungerford Hill’s winery is a landmark of the Hunter Valley region, with its unique barrel-shaped tasting room and underground working cellar. The much-acclaimed Muse Restaurant offers some of the finest food in the Valley amidst spectacular views across the vineyards to the Brokenback Ranges.
