Wandin - Hunter Valley is situated in the Lovedale area of the lower Hunter Valley on the slopes of the Molly Morgan Mountains with views over Pokolbin towards the Brokenback range. The vineyard was established in the early 1970's and the mature Shiraz and Chardonnay vines are over 30 years old. It is from these vines that our Reserve Chardonnay and Bridie's Shiraz are produced.
Originally called Millstone Vineyard, the previous owners, James and Philippa Davern, renamed the estate Wandin Valley after the fictional town featured in the series 'A Country Practice' produced by James Davern's television company.
In 2010 Russell and Katrina Leslie purchased Wandin for their family wine business, Swish Wine, reinforcing their passion and commitment to the Lovedale area, its wines and its people. The estate is now undergoing a major refurbishment reinforcing its position as a unique tourist destination and the region's pre-eminent wedding and function venue.
Wandin wines, under the gentle hand of Winemaker Daniel Binet, have always received excellent critical acclaim, and have won many show medals. James Halliday awarded the estate 5 stars in his 2012 Australian Wine Companion.
