Established in 1967, Hungerford Hill is a boutique estate in the Hunter Valley. Australia’s oldest wine region.
For over a decade, the Kirby family has worked tirelessly to build on the winery’s proud reputation for distinguished wines and to create a memorable cellar door experience. Guided by accomplished Winemaker Adrian Lockhart, Hungerford Hill’s able team produce authentic wines, packed with character and interest, with a focus on New South Wales’ cool climate regions.
Hungerford Hill’s winery is a landmark of the Hunter Valley region, with its unique barrel-shaped tasting room and underground working cellar. The much acclaimed Muse Restaurant offers some of the finest food in the Valley amidst spectacular views across the vineyards to the Brokenback Ranges.
Quality Hunter Semillon in its youth is recognised for a seamless and impeccable balance of tight fruit flavour and fruit acid. While they are pleasant as young wines, the intensity of this relationship is the foundation on what observations may be made on a Semillon’s ageing potential. It is the character Semillon builds as it ages in bottle that places this particular variety in a unique category all of its own.
