Dalwood Estate

Established on the beautiful Hunter River in 1828, Dalwood Estate is regarded as the birthplace of Hunter Valley wine.

700 Dalwood Road, Dalwood

As the longest running commercial vineyard in Australia, Dalwood Estate purchased cuttings from the first Australian vine collections of Macarthur, Busby, Shepherd and Blaxland. Early colonial Dalwood wines from those vines won prizes at international exhibitions. It’s a proud heritage.

Today Dalwood Estate continues to raise the benchmark in Australian winemaking, placing passion, expertise and technique at the heart of all we do. We are proud to bring you an outstanding selection of Hunter Valley wines born from a legacy close to two centuries in the making.

Dalwood Estate is committed to providing a memorable wine experience, and our passionate and knowledgeable staff can offer you a wide selection of unique and exciting wine tasting experience. If you rather come and enjoy the beautiful view, the estate provides BBQ facilities and sheltered picnic areas overlooking the Hunter River.
