Description

Margan Wines is a multi-generational grape growing and winemaking business with an acclaimed wine and food tourism operation. It was established by Andrew and Lisa Margan in 1996 in the historic village of Broke and now 25 years later includes two of the second generation. Alessa and Ollie as viticulturalist and winemaker respectively are back home and join the Margan Team after experience abroad, bringing with them a fresh perspective to the brand’s evolution. Andrew is still across all vineyard and winemaking and Lisa continues to oversee all food and wine tourism operations.

The estate now farms 100 hectares of vines following regenerative agricultural principles and is certified Sustainably Farmed (SWA). These vineyards are all in the Broke Fordwich GI and are mostly planted on the Fordwich Sill, a unique volcanic soil formation dating back 200 million years. The vineyards are a combination of old vines (50yr plus) planted to traditional varieties such as Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz, as well as pioneering varieties including Albarino, Barbera and field blends of Shiraz/Mouvedre and Tempranillo/Graciano/Shiraz. A gentle approach in the winery at Margan aims to produce outstanding wines of regional definition and varietal typicity.  

We craft our menus around the harvest from our one-hectare kitchen garden & orchard to maintain a hyper-local focus. In addition, we have our own olive trees, free range chickens, beehives and raise our own lambs, all of which is incorporated into our menus. We offer range of behind-the-scenes tours, masterclasses and culinary experiences.

We are proud to be one of the ‘must do’ restaurants in the Hunter Valley with a consistent annual Good Food Guide recommendation (One Chef Hat), and regionally awarded in Gourmet Travellers and Best Restaurant . Our wine list features Margan wines plus local, National and International favourites and is continually awarded 2 Wine Glasses (Australian Wine List of the Year Awards).
