Begin your unique Hunter Valley art experience at one of our boutique Vineyards
Built in 1993, the vineyard nestles in a tranquil valley only 1.5 kilometres from historic Wollombi Village. Constructed with external slab walls and cedar cathedral ceiling the cellar door is reminiscent of the original Undercliff Estate.
The perfect venue for unique events and intimate group dinners.
Proclaimed and settled as a farm in 1846 the property still retains the original timber slab sheds and homestead. The Settlers Cottage now unique accommodation for guests.
Adjacent to the vineyard is the original clay quarry for Wollombi’s 19th century brickworks. Now a billabong fed by a subterranean water table this provides irrigation for the vineyard.
This land originally granted to Napoleonic War Veterans in the 1820’s has become renowned for its horticultural produce. The 7th generation Heslop family continue farming deer and cattle to this day. In 1995 they established the vineyard. As vignerons they produce premium quality wines through sustainable viticulture using no insecticides and only organically approved fungicides.
The family homestead, cellar door and wine cellar are all built of old convict stone and sandstone quarried on the farm. Cedar Creek Cottages are built with respect to Wollombi’s history from timber slabs in the style of the early settlers, and are set on the rise overlooking the leafy green Vineyard.
Noyce Brothers Wines is in the heart of the Wollombi Village. Located in Grays Inn, an historic 19th century Georgian sandstone building with ensuite accommodation on the first floor, and Panino Café and the Noyce Brothers cellar door below. An ideal base to begin your Hunter Valley art experience and explore the local area.
