Australia’s most famous Semillon region is also our most visited wine region. The first vines were planted in the 1820s by families whose names live on in some of the best wine brands in the country.
Nestled in the lee of the majestic Brokenback Range and cooled by ocean breezes, the Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s best-known wine regions. It lies approximately two hours’ drive north of Sydney and to the north-west of Newcastle.
The Hunter Valley is home to over 130 wineries producing a wide array of exceptional wines. It is recognised as a world leader in dry white wines made from Semillon. Hunter Valley Semillon is regarded as Australia’s unique white wine.
Hunter Valley wines are light and relatively low in alcohol, which makes them a great accompaniment to food. The region specialises in fine dining, quality producers, great chefs and food and hosts a busy calendar of food and wine events. It is also renowned for its national parks, wine and cooking schools, fine dining, spa retreats, and great golf.
Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard and Cellar Door is one of the oldest wineries in the Hunter Valley wine region. The 270-acre vineyard is named after one of Australia’s early wine pioneers.
Audrey Wilkinson planted the first vines in Pokolbin in 1866 and was an early innovator in the production of fine wine. Audrey’s legacy of ‘It’s all about the taste’ is at the centre of everything the winery continues to do.
Located in the foothills of the scenic Brokenback ranges in the Hunter Valley, 165 km north of Sydney, the family-run business produces award-winning Semillon. It is rated a 5-star winery by Australian wine critic and vigneron James Halliday and has been named in the top 10 wineries to visit in Australia by Gourmet Traveller.
