Region Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley is the most important quality wine-producing region in New South Wales, even though it represents only a fraction of the state’s production.

Although the region can be particularly hot, the cloud and rainfall patterns significantly modify the microclimate.

The best vineyard sites are located within sight of the imposing Brokenback Range that is exposed to the cool sea breezes. Further inland, the maritime influence gives way to a greater degree of continentality. The Hunter Valley is best known for exceptional age-wo
