Description

OPEN: THURS-MON 10AM - 5PM

Handcrafted wines made with passion and knowledge.

Glenguin Vineyard was first planted in the 1980s with an average vine age now over 25 years and each wine comes from a small individual vineyard block on the property. Organic and biodynamic farming principles are followed at Glenguin where things are still done by hand from planting through vine training to pruning and handpicking at vintage.

The shiraz and semillon vines at Glenguin are directly descended from James Busby's original planting at Kirkton in the 1820s. They are planted on their own roots on a unique combination of a raised gravel bench for shiraz with sandy loam over red basalt for Semillon.

The name Glenguin comes from the original Scots Gaelic name of the Highland distillery now called "Glengoyne" (since 1909). Robin Tedder, Australia's 7th Master of Wine, is the third Baron of Glenguin and grandson of Arthur Tedder the First Baron Marshal of the RAF and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in WW2. Arthur was born on the distillery property in 1890 and the Tedder family continues the association with great drinks through the vineyards at Glenguin in Australia's oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley.

Glenguin wines have won major Trophies including NSW and Boutique Wine Show Trophies for best white wine plus both Best Red and NSW Wine of the Year at the NSW Wine Awards for shiraz. Production is extremely limited with just a few hundred cases of each of our wines.

A visit to the Glenguin cellar door is among the more unique tasting experiences in the Hunter Valley.

Sitting at our tasting table, a single piece of Western Australian Jarrah, looking out over the Schoolhouse Block and beyond to the Wollombi Brook is the perfect setting to enjoy and learn more about our hand crafted wines, including our acclaimed shirazes.

For the ultimate tasting experience, book in for one of our Winter Fireside Chats during the colder months. These tastings offer our premium wines plus rare and museum wines that are not available outside of these tasting. For $30 per person (minimum two people), we take you through some of our most sought after wines and vintages, including our most award-winning wines.

On Saturday evenings during the summer months, our Summer Shiraz Sessions look at Shiraz in detail – from its traditional home in the Northern Rhône to its establishment in South Australia and the Hunter Valley and through to cool climate regions, finishing with a look at several Glenguin Estate Shiraz wines. Weather permitting, this may also include a quick vineyard tour with a brief discussion around vineyard management techniques and what makes Shiraz so special. Our Summer Shiraz Sessions cost $30 per person to cover the cost of wines opened, book via AirBnB.

Small group bookings of up to 10 can be accommodated and are encouraged, however we do ask that you call or email in advance to ensure that we're able to give your group the best tasting experience we can.
