For more than 170 years Wyndham Estate has set the benchmark for quality Australian wines, proudly wearing the title of "industry pioneer" responsible for launching Australian wines onto the world stage.

English immigrant George Wyndham began this most important page in Australia's winemaking history in 1828 when he planted his first vineyard at Dalwood, along the banks of the Hunter River, in New South Wales.

Dalwood HouseSeven years later Dalwood Wines, as it was then known, released its first vintage to rave reviews and by the mid-1800s was exporting to England and India. George Wyndham led the way in promoting the fledging Australian wine industry, showing Dalwood Wines in the Great Expositions of Europe and the USA.

The Hunter Valley wines quickly bagged a swag of international medals and in the process earned the Australian wine industry a reputation for high standards and exceptional quality.

To honour George Wyndham's memorable achievements, Dalwood Wines was renamed Wyndham Estate in 1970 - one hundred years after George Wyndham's death. Wyndham Estate has continued the tradition of taking on the world with its superior winemaking and in 1988 was ranked number one at the prestigious Intervin International by winning 26 medals - a first for Australia.

It did it again in 1989 and continues to impress to this day on the world stage with wines such as the 1999 Show Reserve Chardonnay winning Gold at the 2002 Chardonnay du Monde competition in France. An exclusive competition for the world's finest Chardonnays.

Today Wyndham Estate is renowned for much more than its wines. The original Dalwood vineyard has become a favourite tourist destination in the Hunter Valley, with its combination of fine food and entertainment to complement its popular wines.

It houses a 400-seat restaurant and function facility, while the historic cellar door, open fermenters and 100-year-old operational basket press ensure guests enjoy the traditional winery experience.

In February of each year, in an on-site amphitheatre surrounded by vineyards, Wyndham Estate hosts a major concert event. Previous international stars to headline the event include Ray Charles, Shirley Bassey, Michael Crawford, Cliff Richard and Anthony Warlow.

Opera in the Vineyard every October is a 'must see', featuring world acclaimed classical artists.

And of course there is the famous Season's Plate Lunch held on the first weekend on each new season. Now a "must" on the gourmet calendar, this renowned culinary indulgence combines Australia's top chefs, premium Wyndham Estate wines and the ambience of the historic winery.
