Hungerford Hill has always pushed the boundaries.
Since its founding in the 1970s in the world famous Hunter Valley, Sydney's doorstep, Hungerford Hill has been at the forefront of multi-regional winemaking, producing award-winning wines from Australia's best regions.
Designed for the future, Hungerford Hill has a new winery and cellar door that pushes the boundaries of architecture and style.
The Hungerford Hill Winery in Broke Road, Pokolbin stands as a sentinel at the entrance to the Pokolbin district in the Hunter Valley. It is a powerful landmark for visitors to the area, situated at the beginning of the road which leads into the gently undulating valley and eventually to the more rugged Upper Hunter.Its near neighbours present a diverse architectural palette. The prestigious Lakes Folly, on the western boundary, still operates from a romantically gabled shed.
Opposite, Peterson's Champagne House is a cluster of neo colonial brick cottages. A little further along Alan Jack + Cottier's 1971 award winning building at the Rothbury Estate has a proprietorial air, perched high on the hill at the end of a grand entrance drive. Across the road from Rothbury is Len Evans' more recent venture, the Tower Estate Winery, with its intriguing ziggurat shaped entrance.Hungerford Hill selects the best grapes from Australia's best regions to create wines with flavour, finesse and regional character. What is the terroir of these regions?
