Our vineyards

Hungerford Hill's wines are crafted using the finest grapes from NSW's best wine regions.

Hunter Valley

Located 160km north of Sydney, the Hunter Valley shelters below the spectacular Brokenback Ranges. It’s warm and humid climate is tempered by afternoon sea breezes. The soils vary widely from friable red volcanic soils which produce some of Australia’s most long-lived shiraz wines through to sandy river beds which produce similarly long-lived Semillon wines.


This remote, cool climate region, 100km South-West of Canberra, is one of the highest in Australia. The vineyards were first planted in 1981 on the western slopes of the Snowy Mountains with elevations ranging from 500 to 950m. Soil types vary across the region from fertile basalt to decomposed granite. The region is becoming renowned for producing some of Australia’s finest Chardonnays and sparkling wines.


The Hilltops Region is 150km west of Canberra, Australia’s capital, surrounding the town of Young, famous for its cherries. Vines were first planted in the 1970’s at an elevation between 450m and 600m on a mix of deep gravelly red soils, basalt and sandy decomposed granite. The cool and dry continental climate, with occasional snow in winter, produces rich, full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz wines.
